brother printer deal

This week you can grab my favorite printer for a great price at the office supply stores!  The Brother HL 2240, is an entry level Black & White Laser printer that will save you a TON on ink and will make all your coupons scan perfectly in the store.

How you ask will it save a ton?  Well it doesn’t have ink… it has toner.  It comes with enough toner to print 500-700 sheets, and then you can get a high yield replacement cartridge for $20 that can print 1500-2000 sheets!  We replace our toner about every other year.

Over the years this is the only printer I’ve ever recommended, and I know many of you have it.  So if you do leave a comment so folks won’t think it’s just me being crazy.  This really is a great printer.

This week you have two options:

The Brother HL-2240 is on sale for $59.99 at Office Depot/Office Max or get it’s wireless twin the HL 2270 for $99 from Amazon.

Note: The wireless version doesn’t like Macs, from personal experience.

      I have a hp color inkjet printer which is a copier and scanner too.
      But it consumes inks worth about $60 every year.
      What do you do for the copier and scanner function? Do u use something different or dont use at all? I have been confused for a while as to should I buy a brother all in one black and white or should I just buy this printer and use my hp for scanner and copier functions.
      Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
      Please help
      Thanks.

        I use (and love) my brother printer 99% of the time. I have an old HP deskjet that I switch over to (move my printer cable from one printer to the other) for scanning purposes only. To copy, I scan the item, save it as a picture and print it on my brother printer since I don’t have any ink in the HP printer but I guess you could keep a cartridge in the HP if you didn’t want to go to the trouble.

        • saving4girls

          neat idea

        • Apryl

          Only thing is the ink would probably dry out. I purchased this Brother but I am thinking of keeping my inkjet all in one Lexmark for scanning. My husband swears he needs to scan, but I don’t think he ever has! lol

          • pdnr

            I don’t buy ink for my HP deskjet. I scan what needs to be copied on the deskjet, save it to my computer and print it out on my brother.

      • Tonya

        i still have my HP copier and scanner and use it as needed. When using it to print coupons I was going thru ink refills every month and sometimes twice a month. However, since I am now getting the Atlanta Journal which has amazing coupons I am not printing as much. I have my Brother printer which we use almost exclusively. I do replace my toner about once a year and yes I buy the off brand cheapy toner and have not had any problem. I usually pay about $12 for the toner and I get it from Amazon. Actually, my printed coupons scan a lot better at the store than the manufacturers coupons on most days.

        Thank you all – for your responses.
        I think I might get this 2240.
        Are there any additional officedepot coupons that could be used with this deal?
        Thanks again

        • elje

          or officemax coupons to make this even better deal?

    • Erica Roberts

      I just bought one and wow I am so pleased wish I would have done it years ago!

    • Erica Roberts

      FYI I use a separate printer for pictures and scanning.

    • Jimmy Turner

      this thing is awesome for coupons.

    • Carolyn

      I love this printer! Please let me know where to find the toner for $20. I saw it for $52 on amazon or they have an off brand for $13 that got mixed reviews. I’d appreciate any advice!

      • Lana

        The refilled off brands work just fine. It is all we have used on ours for 3 years.

        • Carolyn

          thanks Lana! I appreciate the help!

          • Russell

            I work at Cartridge World remanufacturing laser printer cartridges. First off, an off brand or compatible cartridge, specially one that sells for $20 is going to be a total piece of junk and could break your printer. If you want to save money and get a cartridge that works, make sure it is a Brother cartridge that was remanufactured. BTW, the high yield cartridge is suppose to yield 2600 pages, if you are getting 1500-2000 it’s cause you paid for a $20 piece of compatible junk.

      Love this printer, I have had it for around 2 years and have replaced the toner 1 time. Would highly recommend this for B& W printing.

    • Bim

      I am super excited about this printer deal!
      I walked into OfficeMax and not only did I get the Brother HL2240 printer on sale for $59.99, it also came with a free Brother P-touch personal handheld labeling system (retails for $19.99). Thats literally getting this brand new printer for $40…woohoo!!!

      • NeedAPrinter

        did it come with starter toner?

    • Crystal

      Can you print from Apple devices to it? Coupons.com app?

      • saving4girls

        love to know as well!!

      • Bobbi

        I just downloaded the coupons.com app on my iphone to try it out, and the 2270 doesn’t show up in the printer list.

    • Jeannie

      I have had this printer 2 or 3 years and only changed the toner maybe once a year. It is a work horse of a printer!

    • jessica whitaker

      Where’s the best place to buy the toner

      • Bobbi

        I buy the cheap, non-Brother brand toner from Amazon, and I don’t have to replace it very often.

    • Jenna

      We have this printer & it handles a heavy workload with ease. I love that it is speedy fast & does two-sided printing. I buy ink at Staples but I’m sure there’s a better option.

    • Bobbi

      I have the 2270 and love it. I have a Macbook and I’ve never had a problem with wireless printing.

      • saving4girls

        have a mac and would love to get this printer
        all 4 of my girls print everyday and it is expensive on my little hp
        want to be able to print with our iphones wirelessly
        please help
        let me know if you think it would work

        • Bobbi

          I just tried to print an email from my phone (I’ve had my iphone for a year and had never tried to print from it!), but it didn’t work. It said no airprint printers were found.

    • Dana Heatherly Padgett

      Yes, I’ve been waiting for this to go on sale again! I’m getting one for our homeschool.

    • SeekingMPoppins

      Does the one sold at office max also come with starter toner?

    • Ej

      Does anyone have any success printing coupons from their iPhone?

    • Betsy

      Just ordered mine. Thank, Jenny!

    • Kate

      I got mine today. It does come with some toner but you also will get a free label maker this week. Also on the bottom of my receipt if I took a survey I got a coupon for $10.00 off my next purchase.

    • ATAmom

      I purchased my toner through Meritline and other companies that gave me cash back through ebates. I paid $25 or less including shipping. I use one cartridge per year, since I do not get the newspaper.

    • Apryl

      Just ordered my printer! I can’t wait to get printing those coupons. Bye Bye to my old ink jet printer!

    • Sharon

      Any links to favorite toner replacements. I bought my last one through Amazon (generic), but not pleased with it’s performance. It kept ink on the roller and put it back on the page.
