If you're like me, then you're probably appalled by what it costs for a printer ink and toner these days.
The printer you bought either came free with your computer or you bought it for $50 and it costs almost double that for a refill.
It's one of the worst retail tricks in the book and this morning, we fight back.
I'd like to thank savings superstar Katie Camacho for the help with this research. Customer service for all stores (with the exception of Sears Outlet) performed brilliantly in my tests. Stores you might not have heard of, like 4inksjets.com, have an A+ Rating with the Better Business Bureau and go above and beyond the call of duty to make new customers happy.
If you don't have a printer, there's three outstanding deals that dropped overnight and the Kodak printers use the least-expensive ink on the market.

Please note that any of the printers can sell out since the deals are so hot today. I've also seen Sears Outlet cancel orders (after they're placed) due to sellouts. Please keep this in mind with any Ways 2 Save when I inundate an unsuspecting merchant with hundreds of extra orders.
If there's a deal you want me to research or a question you have, I'd love to hear from you. Send an email to email@example.com.
