I mean someone can get free cartridge if you can use offline by refill just a bit.
oh okay...that won't work, as soon as you go back online it will "remember" how much was printed offline and add it to your account allotment assuming you still have an active account and the printer recognized the carts as instant ink ones.
i've never attempted this but you are free to give it a shot if you are willing, I suppose.

I meant have two printers. One for online and one for offline. I don't think this marketing strategy work long term. People will find way to hack it as they always do.

Is it qualified for Instant Ink?
HP lists 'HP DeskJet 2600 Series' as eligible, but is 2652 part of that family? Kinda doubt it.
the 2652 is part of the 2600 series (series is based on the first 2 digits), and therefore is indeed Instant Ink ready.
want further confirmation, i personally saw and read the 2652 box with my own eyes in store just last night...was trying to convince my uncle to buy it but he is a Canon loyalist to the end however.

If you have two printers, you can sign both up for free ink anyway?

There are two reasons why this doesn't work. First, like the other commenter said, page counts update as soon as the printer connects to the Internet. It had to connect to the Internet in order to sign up for the service, and again when the first Instant Ink cartridge was installed. If the printer stays offline for a certain period (less than a month, I think it was two weeks or so) or never connects in the first place, the printer is locked and you can no longer print without either reconnecting to the Internet or replacing the subscription cartridges with regular retail ones. Secondly, the Instant Ink cartridges are keyed to the specific printer they are installed in, such that they simply do not work with other printers, even those of the same model. While you can disable this "cartridge protection" setting, it does not apply to Instant Ink cartridges, only retail ones. So you cannot use one online printer then swap cartridges to an entirely offline one (even if this lock didn't exist your offline printer wouldn't print until it connected to the Internet first anyways).

If you wanted to circumvent the page limits the only practical way to do so would be to transfer ink from the large subscription cartridges to regular ones. It really isn't worth the hassle.

Yes, each printer you own can have its own plan, free or paid.
:facepalm: Common fallacies! Canadian pricing is the same as US pricing with FX and tax. Ink is more expensive than a new printer. LTE is 4G. Macs are more secure.

Are you sure it's first 2 digits and not 3? Because the next in the list is 'HP DeskJet 3630 Series'

For the life of the printer (and as long as HP is supporting it)
15 pages/month free.
You can get 1 more year warranty from cc.
15 color per month is more than enough.

Do you need to buy this card?

well i have the 3634
my account sees it as "3600 series"
correction, my account is indeed 3630 series.
but the 2652 does state "Instant Ink Ready" on the box itself

Do the unused pages roll over to the next month and so on after that?

You can only rollover on a paid plan, and up to 2x your monthly plan's # of pages. So on a 50-page plan, you can roll over up to 100 pages each month.
