What do you pay for printer ink? I paid 35.00 just for black.

  • Go to Walgreen's and get them refilled instead. Runs $15 or less, and they do coupons and specials all the time. Once in a while they even do a free refill day.

  • if you have a laser printer your ink should last much longer than an ink jet, so you'll get your money's worth

  • I usually get a combo pack with the black and the color for about $30. I have an HP, and usually get the ink at Walmart.

  • You can get them cheaper, but not the price they should be. It is a price fix by the companies. Eventually someone will break through. I am not sure what it will take.

  • $28 for one $30 for another for one printer...the other printer ink is $23-25 each, but since I moved, the only place I can get ink (other than online) is at the Base Exchange where they declared that they are no longer going to carry ANY of those ink cartridges...and offered to sell me another printer (grrr). Online, I got 2 photo cartridges for $30 total for one of the printers.

  • My printer cartridges are fairly pricey too BUT they do last a very long time and I can usually find them cheaper on Ebay.

  • I paid around $80 at Office Depot. The last toner cartridge we had lasted four years.
