One of the best ways to save on printing coupons is to pick the best printer for the job.  Laser printers are by far the way to go in terms of cost and in terms of getting high quality coupons that scan great.

Right now you can get my all time favorite printer at Office Depot for $50!  Remember it comes with toner that can print a good 1000-2000 sheets before needing to be refilled (see if your inkjet can do that??).

To get the deal add the following your cart:

  1. Brother HL-2240 Laser Printer $59.99
  2. Pink Eraser, small 29¢

During checkout enter code 70796638 to get $10 off a $50 purchase.

Because you added the eraser your total will be $50.28 and will qualify for FREE shipping!

    • Ditto. I ran out of toner last week and was not about to pay a boat load
      of money for a toner cartridge. The prices are crazy at Staples, Office Max,
      and Office Depot but I found the TN450 for less than $50 at Newegg.com.

    • Mistydawnwall

      I have this printer. I love it!

    • SEM

      I have this computer and love it, but my store won't take laser printer coupons. Every time I try to use them, they allege that I have photocopied them! Grrrrrr. Wish I needed one!

      • SEM

        I meant printer, oops!

      • Fran

        where are you located and which store are you talking about?

        • SEM

          I-55 N Kroger in Jackson, MS

    • Jenni P

      Do you have to buy special paper for this printer?

      • Anaw

        Nope and it works great :)

    • Shanti Pena

      thank you for sharing..i was looking for a good laser printer at a reasonable cost..what does the toner cart. costs??

    • Anaw

      Anyone know of any deals on ink cartridges??

      • I just wait for X/XX or % off office store coupons that are usable on technology products. More often than not, you can't use coupons on HP ink at all.

      • Farqthr

        yes 101 INKS.com

        Great place to buy cheap,and good company to buy from, been buying ink for my multi function center Brother for about 3 years..


    • BenL

      I bought the previous version of this printer (HL-2140) for $50 last summer. It runs excellent and the toner lasts a long time. I think I bought an aftermarket, “non-Brother”, high capacity toner from Amazon for less than $20. It is advertised to print 2600 pages.

    • Grwrn

      I bought this printer 6-8 months ago and love it. I print a lot of coupons and my daughters school stuff. I just replaced the toner and only paid $30 for it on amazon. That is usually the cost of one ink jet cartridge that I had to replave every 3-4 weeks before.

    • Kcreviews

      Unfortunately I just bought a new HP printer for $70 a couple months ago…I hope someone else enjoys this deal.

    • Mandy A

      Thanks for the heads up! I've been dreading the switch to a laser printer because of the cost… but $53 after tax is great!

    • Calpurnia78

      I just bought this! I have been looking for a good printer. Thanks so much! I bought the eraser but I could only find the 39 cent one, oh well! Thanks for this tip!

    • Shon

      I got this computer a few months ago and just replaced the toner last week. Was able to find the toner refill for <$5 on ebay. Works great.

      • Gamblesonsfarms

        do you remember the ebay seller, I'm needing toner also. I purchased this printer at Christmas and its been saying its low for at least a month now.

    • Beth S.

      I JUST bought this two days ago from Staples – I had a $50 coupon for it, so this is definitely a better deal, by about $10 bucks! Love the printer so far, was easy to install and works great! Super for printing all these coupons!

    • Peggy

      Jenny, Thank you for the step by step instructions. I just ordered the printer and pink eraser! The last time I went to the store, they didn't have this printer in stock.

    • Bridgette

      Just purchased one! I didn't have to add the eraser because it looks like they calculate the free shipping before the coupon is deducted. But, then I noticed that I could pay for it online to get the $10 coupon and choose In-store pickup! So I'll be able to pick it up today and not wait for it to ship!! Sweet!

    • Simply82

      Just ordered mine! Thanks so much! This is a great deal and will definitely save me ALOT on cartridges. :)

    • Mommyhaleyluke

      Wish it was a copier too! I need a printer/copier combo. Since we homeschool I am always making copies.

    • Stacielovescoupons

      Does anyone know what it will cost for a new toner cartridge for it?

      • sandy

        Original Brother TN 360 is $42 approx on Amazon. $45 + tax at BJ’s

        You can buy on the cheap for non Brother toner for half the price.
        My dad bought from http://www.meritline.com/brother for $22
        Yields over 3300 copies especially when you cover up the windows on each side with black tape after you get the “toner out” signal.

      • Check out 4inkjets(dot)com or 123inkjets(dot)com or meritline(dot)com. They are usually a little over $30 for compatible cartridges, about $45 for Brother, I think. There is a thread in the SS Community that I started about this. The toner for this one is a little higher than the previous model.

    • Mysavingspot

      Thank you so much!! I have been praying for a laser printer! Our inkjet had become so expensive we stopped getting ink and then I could hardly coupon anymore. I am SO excited!!!!

    • Brandy

      Whoop Whoop!!! Another Christmas present checked off my list:) Merry Christmas Mom

    • For those of you wondering where to get toner from, you can save a lot by buying off ebay (cheaper than amazon). I personally buy expired Brother toners (and ink cartridges when I had a different printer). They work perfectly provided they are factory sealed. I would never buy a non OEM toner as they will void your warranty if something ever goes wrong. (I fell for a remanufactured that didn't work and was just out of my money.)

      Also to note is that I have had a different Brother model for 4 years and have only replaced the toner exactly once. The starter toner lasted WAY longer (printed regularly for three years) than how many pages they claimed I would get out of it. Even when I replaced it, the toner hadn't run out, just got a message that it was low. They are well worth the money over inkjets any day.

      Enjoy the deal!

    • Thetorontokid2

      Just bought this, what a great deal! I've been looking for something like this so I could print coupons and bill receipts and the like…thanks for the tip!!

    • Mnshurst

      I love this printer!!! We bought it last July when it was a super good deal like this & we are still using the starter cartridge. Good buy!!!

    • Knitrn

      Thanks so much! I just bought one and will pick it up tomorrow when I go out for my Publix shopping. The stores are right by each other!

    • Heather

      My stores also claim laser printed coupons have been photocopied, even if they scan. Any way around this? The stores mostly in question are HT and CVS/Walgreens/Rite Aid.

    • Brassssy

      It wants to charge me $3.90 for “taxes.” How did you all get around this?

      • Most can't unless there is no office depot in your state. If they have a regular store in your state they have to charge tax.

      • Donna

        Can't escape taxes! At least yours were lower than mine – I paid $4.27 in tax.

      • tnchickadee

        TN has 9.75 sales tax…be thankful.

    • Laura

      Someone please verify, is black ink all this will print?

      • Yes it is a black ink only printer.

        • Couponcrazy85

          Will I have a problem with the stores not accepting my coupons because of them being black and white?

          • Lzbacnik

            I bought this printer last year when Jenny told us it was on sale. I have not had any problems with anyone not taking my coupons. It is a great printer

      • Gamblesonsfarms


    • C.T.

      I would like to note that I purchased this exact printer the last time this special was going on, maybe a month ago. It does not come with a standard toner that prints 1000-2000 sheets. It only comes with a starter toner that yields up to 700 sheets. You can find the specifications on Staples website.

      • Jsings115

        Thanks for saying that! I just bought mine a couple months ago and hadn't even printed a full ream of paper yet and it is saying low toner. I was not happy, but I guess this answers that question. Now, if I buy a bottle of toner online and refill it myself, will it hold it all or is it actually SMALLER in size?

    • Deana_Riordan

      So excited about this deal! Between coupons and homeschooling we are constantly replacing ink and was getting extremely costly. Looking forward to the new printer and the savings that will come with it!

    • L Sherrill

      i bought this printer in November ( I believe it may have been early December) anyway it was when Jenny posted the deal .. I love love love this printer very easy to set up yesterday my toner low warning came on i cant even begin to tell you how many coupons I have printed this is just using the toner that came with the printer now i am on the hunt for cheap toner !

      • Superjen

        On ebay you can get bottles of toner for dirt cheap… I am not handy at all so it takes me about 20 minutes but they come with instructions about unscrewing the end to fill it, reset the gear and reuse it. Earth friendly and cheap, my kind of deal. If you got that groupon this morning that should cover it…

        • Is the toner specifically for this printer (I am in need of some!) or is it just random toner bottles? What would I search for?

          • emerson

            out of couriosity how many prints would you say you used over that 6 month period

      • Queenjj

        Pull out your toner, look on the side it has a round glass thingy on both sides. Cover it up with tape, and paper and your toner should last you a few more months. Mine lasted a total of 6 months when i finally replaced it :)

    • Donna

      Wow, great deal!! I was looking for a laser printer and this deal can't be beat! Thanks so much foro sharing, Jenny!! :)

    • Chaspowell

      Just ordered the printer. Thanks Jenny for cluing us in to such good deals.


    • Couponing Rocks!

      I was going to order this printer until I read some comments about stores not taking laser printer coupons. Can anyone else comment on their experience with using a laser printer? Anyone in the Chattanooga area have any trouble?

      • Debbie1963

        I've used a laser printer for years. Purchased a Brother printer about 10 yrs ago and it finally gave up. Went last week and purchased a Canon. It works great but I'm still taking advantage of this Brother printer. It's at a great price and Brother printers last. I haven't had any problems using the coupons I print out in SC. Hope this helps.

      • tnchickadee

        My coupons rarely scan at Public, Kroger, WAGS or CVS…but the cashiers always take them anyways by keying them in. I bet only 10% of them actually scan on the 2nd or 3rd try. After that they give up.

        I prefer to use my printer @ work b/c those always scan easily but my IT dept. keeps un-installing my coupon printing thing and then I have to keep re-installing it LOL The owner of my co. doesn't care that I print them, but IT is just doing his job by removing any “unnecessary” stuff off of my pc. anyways….My printer @ home looks like it prints great but when I get to the checkout, it just wont scan. I dont get it.

        Luckily, my boss said I could get a new printer and take my current, old clunky one home! :-)

        BTW, I'm in Mboro.

      • Couponing Rocks!

        Thanks for the responses. I just ordered one. I'm excited to get it and try it out. I have been printing the coupons in black and white only (my color ink is out) and have had no trouble with stores taking them, so hopefully it won't be a problem.

      • Lzbacnik

        I have this printer and I haven't had any problems with anyone not accepting my coupons.

      • Beth

        I have had this printer since October of last year and it just ran out of ink. My husband spend about a half an hour and tricked the printer in to thinking it still had ink. It still works great. Only a few times have I had the coupons not want to scan. It also seems to make the coupons stick together a bit more, but that may be the hp paper I am using. Its a great printer, just make sure to cover up the holes in the toner to make you toner last longer, and adjust your printer settings to smaller resolution/dpi. As of to date I have printed almost 1400 pages, and its still going so defiantly worth the $50 investment.

    • all4memories

      This is not a copier and/or scanner is it?

    • Couponcrazy85

      So excited! Ordered mine.Hoping now that the stores will accept my black and white coupons! :/

      • Couponcrazy85

        And thanks so much Jenny! I was waiting to see when one of these hits a great sale again! :) I did have $3 tax but I'm not complaining about that!

    • Jnjhcoupons

      I just called my local Publix (Cumming, GA) who said they take black and white printed coupons. I also called my local Kroger (Dawsonville, GA) and they said they take black and white coupons as long as they are not for “free items”. The “free items” coupons need to be printed in color. Looks like I will be shopping at Publix more and more often since a new printer is now in my future! :)

    • Ann

      Thanks Jenny ! I had been hoping for another printer deal like this, since I missed all the ones at the beginning of the school year. It cost me 53.00

    • Lelia Parker

      Will this printer handle wireless?

      • Queenjj

        This one is not the wireless one. IF it is wireless i believe it has a W in the product name. I do have the wireless one 2170W and I love it!! i went 6 months before replacing the toner that came with the printer. ( I print a lot, and 2 kids who are always printing.)

      • Sarah R

        I purchased this printer last fall. My husband has it set up on our home network and I can print to it wirelessly. It can handle wireless if set up as such. I am lucky to have a computer geek as a husband though.

    • Lzbacnik

      The last time Jenny mentioned this printer I bought it and I love it. To answer your question, yes it can handle wireless. My laptop is wireless and I haven't had any problems with the printer.

    • Brendaoc

      I actually ordered this printer a couple of months ago with a huge coupon from our business account. I got it for a deal and it is an amazing printer. I am so excited to see it go on sale so more people can get their hands on it!

    • Guest

      I just spent over an hour trying to order… they ran out in my area and won't ship to a relative if I use my credit card.

    • Oceanfan2001

      I bought this printer the last time Jenny had it on here and let me tell you it is an AMAZING printer! It prints very fast and I still haven't replaced the toner. Don't miss out on a chance to geet the BEST printer for your coupons.

    • Does anyone know if you can use this with windows 7?

    • Trish

      Ordered it tonight! thanks for the tip!

    • zhuzhu

      Thanks you Southern Savers for this awesome deal. For those of you asking, this model is not wireless, Brother Printer HL2270DW Wireless Monochrome Printer is the wireless model. And I have read that it goes on sale quite frequently also!

      • I don't have the wireless version. I have this exact one and I can print from my laptop wireless. so it's possible.

    • If you have the printer connected to another computer, say a desktop, and you share the printer you can print from any laptop. We've had it set up this way for YEARS and its been awesome!

    • Yorkielover928

      There's also an ad at the bottom right of the homepage for free after rebate address labels on Office Depot's website. I'm adding these to put me over $50 for my free shipping!

    • tygmom

      Has anyone had any problems setting up this printer with a Mac?

      • Lisa

        We all have Macs in our house (4 computers total) and I had no problem setting it up. Plus, you can turn on Print Sharing and all of the computers in the house can print to it.

        • tygmom


    • Calpurnia78

      I have to laugh and share– a big, big big box came today with nothing in it except a lot of bubble wrap and a little pink eraser! My printer should be here soon..dont they have smaller boxes??

      • Donna

        That's funny! I did the same order too, so I bet I'll get one of those boxes with a tiny eraser in it too. :)

        • Tiffany

          I didnt have to buy an eraser and my order still went through with the 10.00 off

      • Hinklejb22

        I got my BIG box with little eraser today…..talk about wastful spending for their company!!! Especially with gas prices so high….kinda makes me sick to my stomach.

        • Calpurnia78

          I know I was just saying the same thing- what a waste of resource, gas and manpower to pack and deliver the order. The eraser came yesterday and the printer today. They are quick!

      • Struckdeals

        That happened to me too! Thought that was crazy! I mean, wouldn't an envelope have worked?

    • mary

      thank you for the fyi on the printer i have a lexmark x6650 which guzzles my ink like a thirsty camel. Great price, free shipping, $10.00 savings, plus an extra 7% rebate using shopathome site. WINNING! lol thanks ur the best.

    • Shows up as $89 if you're shopping from Canada, even though $1 CAD is currently worth $1.02976 USD.

    • I just ordered it!! Is it easy to figure out how to do the sharing printers?! I want to have it hooked up to my desktop printer and hoping to be able to print off my laptop! Thanks again for this great deal!

    • Tattooedallover69

      i have this printer and love it. check online at amazon to get ink i got two ink cart. for 30 bucks with shipping, they r priced at the stores for 40 a piece!

    • Susanmbabb

      Did anyone get the 2 year product replacement plan on the printer?

      • yardsale_shopper

        i did. since i walked in and got the last printer, they matched the online price and i had printed the coupon code discount they gave me that as well, so i felt the 9bucks was not bad investment for 2 years anyreason refund… given that i saved so much.

    • Expectgrowth

      Awesome Sauce! I love this site!

      • Expectgrowth

        I bought it. It worked $53.04 all in.

    • Calpurnia78

      This came today, I hooked it up and Im thrilled! Its so much better than the printer I had, which Im going to install upstairs on my other computer. Thanks so much for the tip. I just started couponing a few weeks ago and I was running to refill my ink for the inkjet too often.

    • Ccrow22

      Anyone having trouble ordering this? It says it's “available online” for “store pickup” and “sold in stores”. It's also listed as “in stock” at my store. But when I try to add it to my cart, it only gives me a backorder option…

      • Wyadon6657

        The same happened to me. Does this mean we can't get it at this price?

        • Ccrow22

          I just tried again and it let me order! Hopefully, my order won't be cancelled like the one above…

    • mary

      i ordered the printer and a medium eraser yesterday, i received the eraser today. the printer and a medium eraser at .29 totaled at $54.53 had to pay $4.49 tax was anyone able to score this deal without paying tax and how did u do it? thanx

    • Elizabeth

      SOOO frustrated with Office Depot. I ordered the printer and the eraser 2 days ago and used my check card. The order went through with no problem and said it was scheduled to arrive today. I have been out of toner for a week and we needed another printer anyway so I was anxiously awaiting this one's arrival. Checked my email this morning and I had one from OD saying the printer was out of stock and that part of my order was canceled. Another email notified me that my eraser had been shipped and provided a tracking number for it. Meanwhile, my checking account still has the hold on the entire amount. I just spent 45 minutes on the phone with a very nice customer service rep. She tried to find a replacement and at first suggested an all-in-one photo smart copier/scanner/printer. I had to explain I needed a laser printer that didn't need toner replacement very often. So she suggested a Samsung laser printer but it didn't have any reviews so now I am just waiting for the Brother to be restocked so I can get one….

    • Wheatley18

      I live behind office depot,so I walked and gave them the coupon code and got the printer for 49.99+ tax. Am very happy. Thank you.

    • yardsale_shopper

      got a grumpy employee on the phone 15 minutes before closing tonight, he acted like a cat with its fur rubbed wrong when i showed up at 3 min to closing with my coupon code. BUT got the last printer they had! thanks Jenny, i really had no idea which printer to use, and my ink jet has been expensive to run, even on grayscale.

    • Purdue1996

      Anyone recommend a printer/copier combo that is similar in quality to this printer? I need it to copy, print in color occasionally but NOT do PHOTOS. I don't care if it is injet or laser just cheaper for ink than my Canon MP160.

    • emerson

      i tried ordering this printer thursday and it was out of stock then miraculously on friday evening it let me place the order and the store has it for pick up and ready to go i just have to run and get it great timing to my expensive inkjets printhead just broke and i cant print anything at all

    • Tangela

      Jenny – I wasn't able to get in on this deal till this week (April 3 – 9) and, of course the printer was no longer on sale. If you see it for this price (or better) again, please list it on your site. I have set $ aside for it. Our printer would be fine if the coupons wouldn't use our color ink. I have the default set for black only, but somehow the coupons override that. Thanks for what you do!
