Brother Laser Printer $49.99

Starting today at Staples you can get an awesome deal on a really great printer! This is available online or in stores.

So many of you always ask how to save on printer ink and paper.  For the ink my answer is often that it’s time to look at a more economical printer.   We switched to this exact printer almost 2 years ago, spent $60 to get it but haven’t spent a dime since on ink!!  Most laser toner cartridges can print 5,000 sheets and this one has held up to that and maybe more.

The Deal

Brother 2140 Laser Printer $49.99 (reg. $119)

Best Deal online:

1. Go to Ebates
2. Add item #714528 (Printer)
3. Add item #771352 (Erasers)
4. Total Due: $50.28 (plus tax depending on states)
5. Get FREE Shipping.
6. Get back 2% cash back.

(thanks Cathy!)

        Consider a refurbished one. I swear it was actually new. I bought the refurbished a few months ago and love, love, love it. It is in stock when I checked just now.

    • Heazer

      It's a great coupon printer! We purchased it for $49.99 about two months ago when one of the office stores had it on sale. It's been SO nice to have all my IP coupons scan at the check-out!

      • kidsryourlegacy

        What does IP stand for? How many print cartridges do you need to purchase to use this and last, what do the print cartridges run? Thanks a bunch!

        • Amanda

          IP = Internet Print

        • The cartridges run about $53

        • abbysmom

          It comes with a toner cartridge in the box so you don't have to buy that right away! woohoo

    • Bonnie

      out of stock on line

    • Wow! Thank-you! That might be worth a special trip to get it, as I have $36 in Staples Rewards, which will pay for most of it… Hmmm…

    • GS

      WOW out of Stock !

    • Jenny Gluck

      Does anyone know when this promotion will end? I would love to buy one next week. I have been waiting for a great printer deal like this one for over 2 months!

    • crystalt

      • Nani

        Yes it does!
        Ive had mine for about 3 mos and im able to print from 2 different laptops :)

    • Julie

      I just bought this printer in July 2010 and have been using it to print coupons and shopping lists. It is already out of toner. I was under the impression that I would not need to buy toner for at least a year or so. Do you know where I can find the toner for this printer at a low price? Can these cartridges be refilled? Thanks so much for your help!

      • Tjohnson1500

        The best price for a replacement tonor cartridge is http://www.123inkjets.com, and if you go through ebates.com right now and get one, you get 16% back on your purchase.

      • Knelson2500

        Take some black tape (or clear tape and color on it with a black marker) and cover the sensors on the sides of the toner. They look like eyes. Like magic, your printer will start printing again…

      • Robin

        123inkjets has the toner for much cheaper than Office Depot.

      • sharon60

        I bought one these the first of Aug and it only comes with a starter toner that lasts about 1,000 sheets. I ordered the longer lasting (5000 pages) toner from 123inkjets dot com last Wed and used code 123FALL to get 15% off and paid $32.99 incl shipping. I went through Ebates first and will get $4.49 cash back so that's a good deal. The 5,000 page toner usually costs $68-$72 either through Brother or Staples. I love my printer and before I install the new toner cartridge, I'm gonna try the electrical tape over the sensor to be sure I use ever last drop.

        • AshleyQ

          I didn't have any electrical tape so I taped a dark piece of scrapbooking paper over it… working fine!!!

      • Jasdawn5

        I saw them on bestbuy.com for about $50.

    • Knelson2500

      I also bought this printer when it was on sale awhile back. A few days ago it stopped printing and the toner light was on. After a brief “Oh NO, I can't afford $100 for new toner” I remembered someone saying that Brother tries to make you buy toner when the tank still has a lot left. After searching, I found a YouTube video where a guy explained that Brother has their printers show that message when a certain number of pages has been printed. What he did is he took some electrical tape and covered the sensors on the toner cartridge, and voila, it started working again, printing hundreds of pages of darkly, cleanly printed notes. I did the same, and my coupons printed as black as the first time. Just be careful that you don't get scammed out of your money.

    • Tjohnson1500

      I have purchased two of these printers, both for $49.99. I print a lot of material on this printer, and it gives great results every time. The reason why I bought a second one, it it was cheaper to buy the whole printer, than purchase a new drum for the printer, plus I got a replacement tonor cartridge also. I couldn't be happier with this printer, little or no maintance.

      You can't buy a better laser printer for this price….I rate this a 10+….

      • Amy

        Awesome idea! I bought it the last time it was on sale and love it. The toner light came on pretty quickly and it stopped printing, but I covered the side holes with black electrical tape (per a fellow SouthernSavers advice), and it has been going strong ever since! Now another great idea from a fellow SS! Thanks!

    • Julie

      Thanks so much! The tape worked perfectly!

      • Knelson2500

        You're welcome! The printer may not tell you when the toner is out, I'm not sure. You should be able to tell by how light the paper is printed and then know to change it.

    • Tdlanier

      I bought this printer when Office Depot had it on sale a month or two ago. It is wonderful if you only need black and white printing capability! It has saved me so much money in ink and has paid for itself in the coupons I have printed from it. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!

    • Trish

      Just picked one up at my local store- had to ask as they were not on shelf, but had them in the back. I used a $15 off $50 OFFICE MAX q, so got it for $35 pre-tax.
      Thanks for the heads up on the sale!!

      • Tigress1321

        where did yo get the coupon for office max!????!!!

        • Trish

          Sign up for their rewards program, and they'll mail you coupons almost every month – sometimes 15 off 50, but often 10 off 20. Good luck!

      • karen

        WHERE did you get the Office Max q?

    • Hey, Bethlehem, GA Southern Savers!
      I'm thinking about driving over from Athens to get one of these printers. Would anybody like to have lunch and/or do a coupon swap?

    • Glenda

      can someone please tell me what to buy to make this a wireless printer? Thank you so much!!

      • Jenncampbell

        I'd like to know the same thing. Have you found out yet? Thanks

        • Knelson2500

          I'm not 100% sure, I asked my tech-savvy boyfriend and he said I'd need a wireless internet router that had a port to plug the printer cord into. But I would try to get more info from a reputable source before purchasing one, as they're not always cheap!

    • Beepampered

      I have rewards at Office Depot. Do they have a price matching policy so I could get this great deal there?

      • Robin

        Yes, Office Depot will price match!

      • Kamarsh1

        My Office Depot would not price match because the Staples ad says “Demo Unit”. :(

    • momof2

      Sold out online…

    • Marianne

      I went to Staples today and they are out of stock there, too, but said that shipment is expected on Wednesday and Thursday and that I can call ahead on Wednesday and they'd put one aside for me. 'Just FYI! :)

    • Robin

      I bought this printer from Office Depot when they were on sale a few months ago and I love it! I haven't had to replace the toner yet (although I did have to color in the clear little round window on both ends of the toner with a sharpie to trick it into letting me use it so long). If you have an Office Depot in your area they will price match Staples if you bring in the ad (and let you use a coupon if you can find and Office Depot printable online).



    • Tfrost99

      Just ran out and got 2. One for me and one for my sister. thanks!!!

    • Jenn

      Stupid question….someone told me this only printed in black and white. Is this true or does it also print in color?

      • Angie

        Only B&W. I've got a regular printer that I use for my color prints. The laser printer is now my dedicated coupon printer :)

    • June Barnes56

      Just tried to order–out of stock! Darn

    • Angie

      FYI–in North Georgia, Canton and Cartersville Staples still had a few left (but the Acworth & W. Marietta ones are out). Don't forget your Office Depot $10/$25 coupon! They take competitor's coupons!!!

      • karen

        my staples wouldn't take my office depot coupon because it excluded technology…do you have a different coupon than the red card?

        • Angie

          I guess she just didn't really read the coupon (but neither did i–I didn't notice that exclusion)

        • Christine

          There is a printable $10.00 off $20.00 and it says it IS valid on technology. SS just posted the link today.

    • melissa

      Got mine!

    • Tuckyblue2

      kind of dum about printers, why do you need the erasers? anyone know?

      • Mamaberry

        It's just a small filler item to get you over $50. You get free shipping on $50 and over. Otherwise you'll get burned on the shipping :) hth

    • Ileshia

      Although the printer is sold out at Staples, you can still go to your local Best Buy and purchase it. They are price matching Staples' ad. All you have to do is bring in a copy. I picked mine up this evening. Excitement!

    • redteapot

      Hi there,
      Does anyone know if it is wireless or not?

      • Christine

        I don't think it is…but, I was told that you can make ANY printer wireless by hooking it up to your wireless router…if you have one of those.

    • Rkinsell58

      With relation to the toner cartridge (TN360) for the Brother B/W Laser Printer HL-2140, the website eink2go.com offers it at $28.95 plus shipping ($8.95 ground UPS to south Florida) and I did not see reference to tax charges, so the total is $37.90. You can purchase more than 3 cartridges to save additional dollars. If you are using an Office Depot discount card to purchase this printer at Staples, be certain to check the exclusions, as Staples refused my discount card because it specified it is not good on “technology” at Office Depot and, therefore, not eligible for use at Staples on this printer. I did proceed with the purchase at Staples and am anxious to begin putting the printer to good use by saving money printing coupons.

    • Thegalesga

      FYI….I have one….the toner for this printer is around $50…..even the staples brand….and about every two toners you have to replace the drum…..

    • munckin74

      I just called my local Staples. They didn't have it in stock, but he told me if I went online this morning they would have more in stock. Sure enough they had them in stock online, and I didn't even need to buy the erasers to get free shipping!! The printer itself qualified for free shipping!!! $53.49 after tax for a laser printer shipped to my house!!!!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Michelle

      Thanks for letting us know about this great deal! I purchased mine at our local store this morning and also used a 10% off Staples Rewards member “disount card” I had received in the mail from them (expires 10/16) to get another $5.00 off!!!

    • abbysmom

      Yeah! I got my printer yesterday. I had $43.20 in staples rewards that were about to expire so I walked out with the printer for $7.23 including tax! Woo Hoo…my best deal of the week. Thanks for the heads up!

    • Christine

      Does anyone know if Best Buy accepts an Office Max coupon?

      • Beth

        I called the store in Charleston Sc and they do not take office max coupons, but they would price match the printer. Best buy had one printer. The office depot on sam rittenburg blvd had 3 printers left, they were over by the paper. Check your receipt because for some reason office depot did not take off the full $10 for the $10/$20 nor did the HP office paper coupon discount correctly (its like $1.99 off for some reason…)

    • Our local Staples was sold out; however, they looked in their computer to see if other stores had it. Found one in Athens, too far for us to drive honestly, and set it up to ship to our house at no additional charge! Forgot our $10 Office Depot coupon though :( Still a good deal though. I should have my printer Tuesday! :)

      • First printer jammed constantly unless you manually fed the paper in, slightly crooked, to compensate for it pulling it in crooked. Took it back to my local Staples. Fortunately the Athens store still had some in stock. Manager refunded my money and just re-did the transaction. Received my new printer yesterday and it is working great! :)
