Moving up and down in ink plans

HP Recommended

I am confused. I’m looking at moving up to the 2.99/month plan for awhile but can’t tell whether I’m able to move back to the free plan if I’m not using it enough. The page states that once moving up to the 2.99 or better, you can’t move back to the free site but in other areas, it states you can move up or down based on your needs. So can I or can’t I go back and forth from free to paid plans? Thanks

Instant Ink is a Print-by-Page subscription service.


Before subscribing, read the contract.

USA - Instant Ink - Terms of Service

Free Plan >>> At this writing, Item 10b




Free plan is available one time, first time, and only then (one time - first time).


You cannot sign up for free plan, change plans, decide you don't like "other" plan(s), and then move back to free plan.

You cannot sign up for "other" plan, decide you don't like it, and move to free plan later.


Free plan is like a one time "coupon" - you can use it once, only once, and only the first time you sign up.
