Thread: We all need to save where we can - me on ink cartridges

    I was paying $60 for a full set of colored ink cartridges: you know Black, Magenta, Cyan and Yellow. I use Brother LC61 for my all-in-one printer.

    I found this place online

    Compandsave.com

    I am the consumate skeptic - read all the reviews - decided that for $25.00 for a set of 10 cartridges (in my case it was 2 of each color and 4 black) - worst case I would have to send them back with a nasty letter.

    My printer ran out of Magenta and I ordered online. They came in fairly quickly (can't remember how long) and I carefully put it in. The entire time praying it wasn't going to break and spill ink all over everything. Oh yes, I can imagine the worst case scenario every time. It worked! I started printing (holding my breath) - wow nice! Didn't dry quite as quick but works. Have since changed, yellow and cyan. Still ticking right along.

    Just wanted to give you all a heads up. With the economy the way it is now, we all need to save. I'm sure they're probably made overseas, but right now, I need to save the money I can't save the economy by buying from Brother right now, although I'd like to. Give those online ink suppliers a try - it's saving me a bundle. (Now, it may print less - but so far so good and they say it prints the same quantity)

    And NO, I have absolutely no affiliation with anybody that sells ink.

    Here we can take in our empty cartridges to the print shop and get a refilled one at a discounted price. Also our local newsagent has generic ones for half the price of the printer brand names, I have used both services with no problems.

    I was doing that too until I went to K-Mart and found that by buying them separate they were only $10 each which made it $40 for the set of 4. It is smart to look around for the best buys.

    I get mine refilled at Costco... Very reasonable.
