Instant Ink

Whatever you do DON'T use INSTANT INK! This was a huge mistake on my part! It's advertised everywhere and I fell for it. I canceled it because I went over on my pages and had to buy additional ink at Office Depot??? I got a huge charge for going over - I wasn't aware of overages! Also after I canceled they DISABLED my printer and I wasn't able to use the ink I purchased with Instant Ink or at Office Depot ! ! ! 

What kind of company does this? I had to buy a new printer.

Good luck if you fell for it too.

Canceling the Instant Ink program will not disable your printer, but you cannot use the Instant Ink cartridges after the plan has ended.  To enable printing you will need non-Instant Ink cartridges for both black and color.


The Instant Ink program covers a contracted set of pages per month, there is an additional charge for overages.
