If there’s one thing I hate the most about my printer (despite being big, that is), it’s the fact that I have to remember every time not to run low on ink. I need get it filled just on time, so that I don’t end up having to print my flight tickets with no ink. And I’m quite sure that I’m not the single one in this situation. HP knows of this big problem and for that it has introduced the HP Instant Ink service which has your printer order ink for you.
The service is already available in the US and launching now in Europe, and for a monthly fee, you won’t have to bother about refilling your cartridges anymore as this will be taken care of and even shipped your door. You just need to sign up to Instant Ink and connect your Wi-Fi-enabled printer to the Internet which will monitor your ink levels and will tell HP when you’re running low. That way, before you run out of ink, a new ink cartridge will arrive just when you need it.
Our Instant Ink enrollment kits are tailored to fit your printing needs, so not only will you always have ink before you need it, it will cost you a whole lot less. Your monthly plan fee is based on the number of pages you print in a month, not the amount of ink you use
To enroll in the new service, you will need to purchase an eligible HP Instant Ink printer, then choose an enrollment kit and pick one of the plans which are better designed to fit your printing needs. You can choose from the following:
- Occasional Printing Plan – $2.99 per month, up to 50 pages
- Moderate Printing Plan – $4.99 per month, up to 100 pages per month
- Frequent Printing Plan – $9.99 per month, up to 1000 pages per month
So, you will end up paying a small monthly fee instead of paying for cartridges whenever you need them. However, the fee comes with a cap on how many pages you can print, which is the single drawback with this service. If you pass over the limited, you can pay one dollar to get 15, 20 and 25 more pages for each plan, respectively.
