    Where is best source for printer ink?

    Do you have a good source for inexpensive ink for your printer? I use HP 74 blk & wh , paid 27.99 for a two pack. Does anyone have a better price? Just thought I would ask the board members.

    Do you have a place like Rapid Refll around you? We've used them here at the hospital for yrs and I use them at home. My ink is the XL and normally over 40 but I spend 20 or under. You don't have to have the old ones they sell them already filled but you can turn yours in. They are guaranteed against any problems.

    I find the stores with the highest prices are those that carry only office supplies. I tried the refills and found I get a lot fewer copies from them. The 2 for $27.99 is about right for Shop-Ko & Wal-Mart. I watch for sales, but they are far & few! When my printer goes out, I`m going to shop around for cheaper ink. I do feel if I get a free quilt pattern that I can print out, I save money by not having to buy it.

    Look at www.oddparts.com. I buy bulk ink and refill my own cartridges. They have a section that explains how to refill what ever kind you have. Very good luck with this site....in the past they have answered questions for me.

    Ink cartridges are expensive but i learned a lesson the expensive way. I thought I would save some $$ so I bought an office supply house brand cartridge. They did not fit properly and it ruined /bent the printer wires. It was an all in one printer that we paid 199$ for and I ended up tossing it.

    I buy online, from Staples. Free delivery and my order is on my front porch the NEXT day! They have great coupons too. I figure that I save gas $$ by not driving the 45 minutes each way to the nearest one.

    I will not mess will refilling my own cartridges and I stick with the proper name brand ink. Peace of mind.

    I will buy ink refills from Rapid Refill only but I agree, I won't refill my own. If I do that then there is no guarantee on it. At least with RR if something goes wrong they stand behind it. Like I said; we've been using them in the IT department at the hospital for yrs and that's what prompted me to start getting mine there. The cost wasn't the only factor because if it isn't a good deal backed by a warranty if something goes wrong it can cost me more. Between my daughter and I we print out a lot and I don't have to buy cartridges very often; once or maybe twice a yr if that.

    I take mine to Cartridge World all the time. They do a great job of refilling and once one of them didn't work and they gave me a replacement. They also punch your card & you get a free one when full. I like the one in Lawrence,KS the best.

    Ink

    You reminded me that I also need ink. Just went to Amazon and got an extra=lg of each of the 4 inks for a great price.
