brother printer dealsIf you are trying to save money on printer ink, it is probably time to get a new printer. My favorite printer for printing coupons is the Brother HL 2240. You can currently get a great deal on this printer!

The printer is on sale for $59.99 at Staples, Office Max, and Office Depot this week.

If you are cool with a slightly different model, Amazon has the Brother HL 2230 for $49.99 right now. The only difference is that this one doesn’t have Automatic Duplex Printing.

If you don’t already have one, you’ll also need a Belkin Hi-Speed USB 2.0 Cable. Your current printer probably already has one, but if not, you can get one for less than $5.

Wireless Option

If you would rather have a wireless option, you can get the Brother HL-2270DW for $77.99 on Amazon.

All In One

brother hl2280

Grab this HL-2280W Printer for $99.99 shipped, plus get 5% back to spend at Staples ($4.95).  Amazon has matched this price (you won’t get the Staples reward, but won’t owe tax).

This is the big brother of the basic model.  It is a printer, copier, scanner that is wireless!!  It is normally $199… so grabbing it this week for $95 is pretty awesome!

What’s so great about it?

The Brother Printer is a black & white laser printer.  It can print 500-700 sheets with the toner it comes with and then you can replace the toner with a high yield cartridge for around $20.  The replacement will print 1700-2000 sheets!  For the cost of one inkjet replacement you have a new awesome printer!!

Seriously guys, I have 2 of these and haven’t replaced the toner in either of them in the past year.

If that’s still not enough pages for you, here’s a way to extend your laser toner cartridge life.

Where To Buy Replacement Toner


Now that so many readers have this printer (it’s that good), I often get asked where to buy replacement toner. If you want the name-brand stuff, you are going to spend $50 or more.

I have always bought the off-brand options available on sites like Amazon. I have been very pleased and they work great with my printer.

One Option:

Brother HL 2240 or 2270 DW – Compatible Brother TN450/420, $10.70

That will print 2,600 pages. Get your paper for FREE and you can print coupons for $.004 each after the initial invest in the printer.

Note: Be sure to make sure you are buying the right cartridge for you printer. My printer has sticker on the front, but you can also look it up on Brother’s website.

    • Katie

      I have this printer it is awesome.

    • Sarah Grant

      I had my shipped to the store and picked it up on my lunch break today. Oh how excited I am for this for my coupons!!! LOL silly I love my wireless for regular printing but that inkjet kills my ink when trying to print lots of Q’s!! Didn’t get the wireless just the regular one but still will be perfect for what I need! Thanks!

      What is automatic duplex printing?

      • Jenny H

        It’s an option that allows you to choose “duplex” (printing on both front and back of the paper) from the print menu of your software program. The printer will automatically flip the paper and print on both sides. You can do this manually on nearly any printer, but you have to print page 1, go to your printer, flip your paper, reinsert it into your printer, and then go back to your computer and print page 2. If you’re only printing coupons, this obviously isn’t an important feature, but it’s very handy for most any other printing functionality.

      I have the wireless printer but can not figure out how to print from my phone. (Galaxy s4) if anyone can help, I would appreciate it. My email is Sweetk3346@yahoo.com.

      • kelly

        I don’t know if this is true or not but I was told you can only print from your phone with a hp printer

    • Robin Mckee

      Just got the HL-2280W PRINTER for $99.99 shipped from Amazon! Thank you for sharing this awesome deal right when I needed it!

    • Shantrena Y

      Can you buy color ink for it?

      • EDinNC

        NO. The 2280 will scan color documents to your computer, but prints only black and white.

      I’m Currently Using An Hp. So This Printer Will Pretty Much Pay For Itself?!

    • Paullet Weaver Maleckar

      I bought this printer recently, I have a page count of 330, it is saying toner low, print outs still look fine. Does the toner low message start to appear way before replacment is actually needed?

    • Samantha

      I have this printer and have only had it maybe 6 months. My ink was printing great but the low ink light kept flashing, and even though the ink was just as black as it was when it was new, it finally stopped printing until I changed the toner.

      I got the Brother HL-2270DW last week from Amazon, but it was 99.99 before tax, $106.74 after tax. I’m pretty happy with it though. I love the auto duplex, and I love that I don’t have to hook it up to a specific computer and share the printer in order to print from any computer in my house.

      Just an FYI, people may want to check and see if their state has started requiring tax on internet purchases. I didn’t know until a friend told me a few weeks ago that starting at the beginning of this year, in North Carolina we have to pay tax on internet purchases. So no more tax-free purchases on Amazon for us. :(
