Black Ink Cartridge for only $6.48 and Color for only $7.92-- Shipped!

I don't know about you, but we use a lot of printer ink.  We used to buy the official HP cartridges for $22 - $25 EACH at Office Max, but that was so expensive, we decided to try refilling them.  We have taken them to Office Max and Walgreens, to name a few, to get refills.  Black cartridge refills are typically $9.99, but color, for our printer, was $18!  And the last two times we had them refilled there have been problems. The black cartridge didn't last long at all, and the color cartridge sends a message to our computer about low ink, and simply refuses to print.   I had heard about online companies that sell remanufactured ink cartridges, so I did a little research.

Good online ink refill companies offer 100% satisfaction guarantees.  They also have much lower prices.  From the research that I did, the one company that has by far the best ratings in the industry is 4inkjets.  For my printer, the black refill was $9.79, and the color cartridge was $11.95.  Shipping is a flat $4.95, unless you spend $50.  However, if you buy 3 black at one time, it is only $9 each.  Color is only $11 each when you buy 3.  Plus, through 11/30/09, you can use code FALL2009 and get another 10% off.

Here's the icing on this little cake.  If you go through Shop At Home, you get a 20% rebate on your order.  And if you're a new customer with Shop At Home, you get a $5 bonus for signing up!

Shop At Home is a site that lets you earn rebates and cash back on online purchases that you already make.  You go to their site, type in the name of the online store you are looking for, and coupon codes and rebates will pop up for that store.  You click on the code that you want to use, and it will take you directly to that store's webpage.  You shop like you normally would, but then you receive cash back on the purchases you made.

If my detailed description confused you, I broke it down below.
Went through Shop At Home, chose 4inkjets and coupon code FALL2009. Was directed to 4Inkjets' website.

Added to my cart:
HP cartridge 94 black : $9.00 x 3 = $27
HP cartridge 95 color : $11.00 x 3 = $33
Subtotal: $60

Used coupon code FALL2009 (deducted 10% - $6.00)
Paid $54

$10.80 will be added to my Shop At Home account (20% of $54)

Total: $43.20 or $6.48/black cartridge and $7.92/color cartridge

Considering that we paid $50 for 1 black and 2 color cartridge refills at Office Max last month, I thought this was a fabulous deal!

Excellent find! I bought an off brand at Office Max and it still cost almost $50.

Thanks, too, for the Campbell soup info earlier -- picked up ours at Wal-Mart today.

You've been an example and I appreciate it!
