Where to Buy Ink Cartridges Online

by brandon_303 / April 2, 2013 2:34 AM PDT

I had always purchased my ink cartridges from Office Depot to get the trade-in credit from my old ones, but after a recent customer service fiasco I don't want to give them more business. I go through several cartridges a year, so I'm looking for another resource to find good deals.

Does anyone have experience buying remanufactured or off-brand cartridges online? I've been using this comparison site,, and it looks like remanufactured is way cheaper than OEM. I don't want to end up wasting money on junk though. Any advice?

This is too close to spam so try again without the link. Also, such a question is a spam magnet so if that happens that thread gets locked if the spammers pile in.

Try again but be aware of the spam issues.

But let's keep the links out or it will be considered spam. For me I just use amazon. With free shipping that's fine but as a bonus I save the empties and at one time took them back to staples for their reward system.

Whoops, sorry about that. I'll make sure to avoid it in the future.
