I need to replace my HP color ink jet cartridge but am tired of paying the high prices for it.  Where is a reliable place that I can order online?

I'm not sure about a source, but try finding a few places that you would be comfortable buying from, then go to google, and type the store name + coupons. Try a few different ones until you get coupons that apply, or until you find the best deal. (example "staples + coupons")

I just placed an order with enivroinks.com they recycle old ink cartridges, and fill them. Nomaly my ink would cost $60 and up but I made out with $35 and free shipping. They have some pretty good reviews as well.

I have an HP printer & I refill my ink cartridges. It's not that hard to do but it can be messy til you get the hang of it. Now if I was printing something important like photos I might not use an off-brand refill but for my everyday printing needs it works just fine... and sooooo much cheaper!

I have a Lexmark printer.  I've tried refilling the cartridges.  It didn't work.  Bought recycled cartriges and they didn't work because there's no chip on the bottom for the printer to read.  So I've just resigned myself to watching them on Amazon to go on sale and buy several then.  I'm thinking that it won't be long until they quit making the ones for my printer since it's a little old now.  I hate printers.

Take your cartridge's to Walgreens,call them and explain what type of printer you have,ours fills for $10 for black ink and like $12 for color and it is good ink,try it.

Try looking up www.lexmark.com/recycle to learn more about recycling cartridges. I do believe they have a list of different cartridges you can order. Just send in you used cartridges and they will send you a new one and they pay shipping and handling. enlightenedHope this helps someone..

I have an HP D1600 printer that cost about $35 brand new 6 months ago.  I get refilled ink cartridges off ebay for $10 including s/h.  Never have trouble with it.  Another option if you do a lot of printing is to buy a personal laser printer.  They have basic ones by Brother for $75 or so that use toner cartridges, and it will cost a fraction per page as compared to an inkjet.  And you can go a long time without having to replace the toner cartridge.

I just found out that Costco refills a lot of ink cartridges for $7.99 and it works great. You can refill them over and over.
