Printable coupons are great until they use up all your ink. The number one question I get with printable coupons is “How do you save on ink?” Well it may seem a little weird, but my answer is… you need to get a new printer! Switching to a black and white mono laser printer, like the Brother HL-2240 will save you a ton over the cost of inkjets!
The Brother HL 2240 is my favorite printer (I personally own 2) and I recommended it without any hesitation for the last 5 years. Right now it’s on sale at Staples for $59.98. You’ll also get free shipping.
Why will this save money?
It comes with a toner cartridge that prints 500-700 sheets! No worries when you do go though all that toner, because there is a compatible Brother high-yield toner cartridge (2,600 yield) for $14.98 on Amazon. If that’s still not enough pages for you, here’s a way to extend your laser toner cartridge life.
Since we can get printer paper for free all the time, you are now only paying for the ink and at $15 per 2000 sheets that is basically a cost of $0.007 per coupon!
Now that’s a lot of printable coupons, and much cheaper than buying several cartridges of ink for your inkjet printer at $25 or more with an average of 170 pages.
Are Coupons okay in Black & White?
Yes! They don’t need to ever be in color. You’ll also find with a laser printer that they are now printed much more precisely and you never have problems with them scanning in the store.
