This is the week to get a new printer!  If you are still living in the world of ink jets please considering joining all of us in the land of laser printers.  You’ll save an insane amount of money no longer replacing ink cartridges, and this week you can get some great deals on two of the top printers for couponers.

Brother printers are all I recommend because they are so cheap to buy and last for ages.  Your printer will come with a toner cartridge that prints 500-700 sheets, then you get a highyield “off brand” replacement that will print 1500-2000 sheets.  The replacement toner will cost around $20.  We usually only have to replace ours every year and half!

The Basic Coupon Printer

brother printer

Grab my favorite Brother HL-2240 for $59.99 shipped, plus 5% back to spend at Staples ($2.99).

This printer is a champ, but basic.  It’s not wireless, which is the number one question folks ask.

The Wireless All-In One Printer

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!

      You are supposed to pay tax when you file your taxes for purchases made outside of South Carolina. So in the end, it makes sense to get it from Staples, rather than Amazon.

      • mrs b

        Unless you participate in something like swagbucks that allows you to cash your points in for amazon gift cards, or you don’t have a Staples nearby (I live in southern Louisiana and our nearest Staples is in Mississippi).
        This printer is going to be my housewarming gift to my family when we finally move into our new house (there is no room for it in our current living space).

      Got one. I spent way over $100 for ink last year so it should be a great savings.

      HL-2280 is also available for $100 right now at Office Max. I got mine yesterday.

    • Macy

      Does amazon do price adjustments? Just bought last week for $109, haven’t even received it yet or do I have to go thru the hassle of sending the one back and re-ordering?

      • Brooke Traylor Smith

        They did a price adjustment for me when my Kindle Fire went on sale a week after I bought mine. Just had to call them :)

    • Cindy

      Thanks Jenny! I bought the HL-2240 a couple years ago (with your recommendation) and love it!

    • Amy

      Jenny- Where do you find the toner cartridges for $20? I’m obviously not looking in the right place. Thx

      • EDinNC

        I use a place called freshinkjets, but there are other good places.

        • Amy

          Thank you!

    • sue

      Any suggestions on which off brand toner to buy or techniques to get it to work? My Brother printer is not working now because I could not get the off brand toner I ordered from Amazon to work. Do I need to reload software or what? Someone please advise.

        How To Reset Your Brother HL-2240 After Toner Refill. It’s from a website called iamdotnetcrazy. If you use a wireless, put in your browser address the printer port name of the printer – like BRW00xxxx – and tell it to “continue” when ink is low (because it isn’t really out). More specifically …… Go into the control page on your network. This will be whatever IP
        address your printer is on, for e.g. 192.168.1.x where x is the ip
        assigned by your network. Just type it into your address bar.

        in, choose “printer settings” – it will ask you for a user name and
        password, and Brother tells you on the page to use “user” and “access”

        go down to where it says Replace Toner – right down at the bottom.
        Change the bullet from “stop” to “continue”. Press the “submit” button.
        Exit from the whole thing…. and off you go, printing away merrily

          EDinNC, I should have said that my printer is wireless. What should I do differently? Thank you so much for your help.

          • EDinNC

            Starting with my 3rd sentence in the above explanation, it is all for wireless printers.
            To obtain your Brother wireless port number (the BRxxxxxxx number that you need to enter into your browser, just like you are entering a website name), do this: START – CONTROL PANEL – DEVICES & PRINTERS – right-click on your wireless printer picture – select “PRINTER PROPERTIES” (not just “properties” – select the “PORTS” tab – find your wireless printer in the list and hover your mouse over the BRxxxxx name. It will show you the full BRxxxxxx name.

              Thank you very much.

      I just bought one! Definitely excited about it I was going to get the $99 one but just got the other one…will be perfect for coupons!

    • Angel Ledford

      Not sure why, but Amazon did charge tax for this…

      • Mike

        Depending on your state, Amazon may be required to charge tax. I know that it is required in North Carolina.

      jenny… do you know if the 2280 is just as economical using toner as the 2240? and is 2280 black printing only?

      • EDinNC

        It’s just as economical. Prints black only, but scans color documents and color photos.

    • MaryC

      I bought the Brother 2240 on Black Friday at Staples for $29. They had another one on sale for that and were out and substituted the 2240 for me. It’s still in the box but think I’ll take it out and try to set it up. I could use the savings on coupons.

    • CouponCutie

      I am so excited about this deal. I have the 2140 and it has been a great machine. I have been watching the wireless Brother printers for awhile now and I bought the 2280 yesterday. It was on sale for $99 at OfficeMax and I used my rewards and a $5/$25 coupon that I received for completing the survey on a previous purchase’s receipt.

    • SJ

      I am going for HP Laserjet Pro P1102w as it is wireless and has AirPrint compatible for all Apple iPads, iPhones and iPods as this brother printer isn’t AirPrint compatible so it is on sale at staples for $79.99 which is an 50% off price so I’m going to get it and have seen many positive reviews on that HP printer. I need a printer that has AirPrint compatible so I can print extra coupons from 4 iPads and 2 iPhones so it’ll be helpful for me :)
