HP Instant Ink

Updated on February 6, 2019
Brenda Arledge profile image

I am a writer. I write poetry, short stories, and greeting cards. I use my printer daily for research and for personal use.

Have you ever run out of ink?

Do you remember a time you needed to use your printer only to discover you were out of ink?

I do. Those days I would rush off to the store and oftentimes discover it was temporarily out of stock.

I had no time to wait for it to be restocked. I always needed my work printed that day.

With HP Instant Ink those days have ended. I always have ink cartridges on hand.

HP Instant Ink delivered right to your door

I no longer run out of ink

My HP printer 2600 series keeps track of how much ink is left.

It sends a link directly to the company whenever you need a new ink replacement.

You do not need to contact anyone by telephone or any other means.

It also has an ink level display so you know exactly how much ink is left on each cartridge.

Plus it prints a detailed report which includes the number of pages and the date printed.

This service is quite reliable and convenient. You will receive a package at your door before you need it.

This service is easy to use

Once you purchase a compatible printer you contact customer service to begin enrollment.

When your service is set up the company has new ink cartridges delivered to your home.

You remove the cartridges that came with your printer and install the new ones.

Then you simply leave your printer on connected to the internet.

It is very easy.

Ink cartridges you receive

Would you like to print photos from home?

You can print photos using this program at no extra expense.

Each photo counts like a regular printed page.

The quality of the pictures is quite good.

Choose a plan for your budget

There are a different plans available.

The plans range from $0.00 to $9.99 a month.

Each one is based on the number of pages you print.

If you find you need more pages than what is offered in those plans contact customer service.

They can offer you a plan to suit your individual needs.

When you choose a plan determine your method of payment and set it up.

I recommend using a prepaid card and have it automatically taken out each month.

Recycle postage paid envelope

Ink recycling program

Each time you receive your new ink cartridges you will receive a white, postage paid envelope.

It is similar to the envelopes one uses when dropping of film to be developed.

This envelope is for you to send your empty cartridges back.

The company has a recycling program and takes care of it for you.

I usually wait until I have 6 to 8 empty ones ready to return.

Then I place the empty cartridges in the envelope and seal it. Then I place it outside on my mailbox for pickup.


Friendly customer service

I find their customer service to be very friendly and competent.

They will even walk you through installing an ink cartridge.

If you want to change plans or cancel you are not penalized.

If for some reason you decide to cancel your subscription with HP instant ink the cartridges you received in the mail will no longer work. You will not be able to print anything until you purchase new ones from the store.

Most printers come with a free trial option. Mine was for 3 months.

This option gives you enough time to decide if it works for you.

If you find it does not you can cancel before your trial period ends.

HP Deskjet 2600 series Printer

Will your printer work with HP Instant Ink?

For a complete list of current HP printer models which are eligible you can contact customer service.

If your HP printer is an older model it might not be compatible.

I have an HP 2600 series printer. This printer is quite affordable for the average person. It costs around $60.00 and it is compatible with the HP instant ink program.


Where is HP Instant Ink available?

I live in the United States and it is available here.

I also have friends who live in different countries and they receive this service.

I know the service is available in Canada, Denmark, Ireland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and The United States.

I would advise contacting the customer service department to make sure your particular area is covered.

Do you use instant ink?
