HP DeskJet 2710 All-in-One Printer
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello everyone! I am bringing a rather weird problem I have noticed. So, let's start from the beginning.

I have bought a new printer for my mother, a DeskJet 2710 All-in-One Printer. As I opened the HP Smart app, I was prompted with the 2 free months of free Instant Ink, and of course, I took up on that offer.

Now, time skip 15 days until the trial was over, I canceled it because I didn't feel that we required it anymore.

Everything went well, until today. I got a notification that I got charged 150RON (eq of 30 euros as of today). I was confused, since I had canceled the subscription 2 months ago, and last month I have not been charged a penny. Now, this is a pretty big sum of money for us, also considering we have not received ANY Instant Ink Cartridges during this 2 month period. The only package we were sent was during the first month of the trial.


Now for some other important details:

I am 100% SURE I canceled the trial.

Upon fiddling with the HP Smart app, I found the Page Count window and noticed some confusing things.

1. Under "My Plan" Page, it says I have subscribed to the "50 pages a month" plan. I have to add when signing up for the trial, I selected the 15 pages month plan.

2. The month before, it also shows that I have printed 217 pages, but no charge. This month, 301 pages, and the HUGE charge I received today.


I also want to say that after canceling, we bought 2 new original HP cartridges from the store in our city.


Now, I would really like to get my money back, since, as I said: I was charged after canceling the subscription, I have not received ANY new Instant Ink Cartridges and have gotten no emails telling me that the trial had been converted to a normal plan, or that I had subscribed to another plan.

I have gotten no help from the virtual assistant whatsoever, and the Helpline isn't available during the weekends...


Thank you for your help.
