Right now, having a printer is an indispensable part of my life. As a college student, I have to print papers, grading rubrics, syllabi, and so much more. I am also a freelance writer (if you haven't noticed) and I constantly need to print resources, invoices, and resumes (hire me!). So, as you can guess my paper trail can begin to add up before I notice it. Since I try to be as environmentally conscious as I can, it bothers me that I don't track the amount of paper or ink I'm using.
I recently purchased an HP printer so that I can print, fax, copy, or scan from the comfort of my home while keeping track of the resources I'm using. When I was going through the information that came with the printer (yes, I'm that nerd) I noticed a great offer! There was a little paper offering three free months of ink and since the printer came with ink that meant I was set for the next four months :)
While I'm writing this, I can't stop fighting the feeling that I should do something insanely cool to make up for writing a blog post about my excitement over free ink. Any suggestions? Backpacking the Chilean coast? Spontaneous trip to Amsterdam? Spelunking?
Anyway, it probably doesn't surprise you that I went straight to their website and signed up for a plan that fit my needs. The printing plan that you're eligible for will depend on your printer and how many pages you print a month but the plans range from free (like actually free for the duration of the life of your printer) to $10 a month. That's less than whatever streaming subscription your paying for, you know, the one(s) that keep you procrastinating when you're supposed to be doing productive things?
I've used up my free months and I've accepted it but, if you are interested in a free month with this ink replacement service you can click here to enroll and we'll both receive a free month of HP Instant Ink! If you're interested in learning more about the service watch the video below.
I wish I was a paid sponsor for somebody,
