The Printing Hack That Can Save You Hundreds
I recently found out about a new solution to a problem I didn't know I had: HP Instant Ink. HP quietly put fancy tech in their newest printers so that the printers could spy on us! The printers now know when we're running low on ink and, if you set up an HP Instant Ink account, automatically send you ink cartridges before you run out.
Not only that, though. The base plan is $3 a month for up to 50 pages of printing, black and white OR color. That is $36 a year. Who has ever spent less than $36 on one trip to the store for printer ink? It's a huge savings.
HP has made it easy by giving you multiple plan options, as well as low penalties for "overages."
I love, too, that when you get your ink, you also get a return envelope to recycle your old cartridges! Yes! I need that, because I'm really bad about recycling those.
This is GREAT for us teachers, but, honestly, anyone who prints regularly can benefit too. To start, you have to make sure you have an HP Instant Ink eligible printer.
I opted for the HP Envy Photo 7855 All-In-One Printer, because I wanted the feeder for the scanner/copier on the top. I love this printer. I have to admit that I've never had a wireless printer at home before and I love it. So. Dang. Much. I’ve been missing out for years.
If you want to go with something a little less expensive, this printer is HP Instant Ink ready and much less expensive!

I've only been using Instant Ink for a short while and I'm super impressed with the printer, the delivery, the online platform. Everything. I'm not sure yet which package is right for me, but I love that I can switch between plans at any time.
Update: It’s been over a year and I’m still OBSESSED. I did finally upgrade to the $5/month plan, but I also went from 50 pages/month to 100. Again, I cannot say enough great things!
If I can help answer any questions you may still have about the HP Instant Ink program, don't hesitate to ask. (I totally drank the Kool-Aid.)
