[The Source] HP DeskJet wireless 3-in-One Instant-Ink Eligible Printers $30

Update 7/20/18: Only source still have the 2655 for $30

Few retailers have the HP 3630 (and the fairly similar 2652/2655) on sale for $30.
https://www.bestbuy.ca/en-ca/product/hp ... 95599.aspx
https://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/hp-deskjet ... 0197202467
https://www.staples.ca/en/HP-Deskjet-26 ... CA_1_20001
https://www.thesource.ca/en-ca/computer ... /108070466

All three printers are instant ink eligible and can be used with the free 15 pages a month plan.

Good luck

You want this to get on the instant ink plan for cheap. Furthermore, all 4 retailers have a no questions asked return policy, so you can buy and return if you hate it.

Didn’t know about the return policy, definitely will purchase one now! Also, after reading about the instant ink plan I’m still a bit confused, is it really cheaper than just buying regular ink cartridges or ink refil cartridges from say, 123ink? This is assuming I go with the $4/month 50 pages option? I don’t print much as I just finished school, so I’m just looking for something to print the odd resume or e-ticket

Is this a better deal than the HP Envy 4250 from a couple weeks ago? Still within return period for me. I don't print much at all I actually haven't even printed on it besides the test page

I have this gut feeling that HP is going to drop the free 15pg plan in a year or so...
Free rides don't last forever.
All these cheap printers that entered our homes and got on instant ink over the past 18 months is the "baiting" that will continue for the short term.
Then comes the familiar "As we continue to support our customers with this wonderful program blah blah blah blah...." HP will then force us to go on one of the paid subs...along with a "bonus" of first 3 months Free for switching within 30 days.
So for all of us who are currently on the free 15 pg plan:
If HP was to pull this say next month for example. Do you:
A. Pony up $4/month on the 50pg plan?
B. Cancel your subscription and buy off the shelf standard ink carts (or 3rd party/refills)?
C. Stop using the printer all together?

In all honesty, I would be inclined to pay the $4/month. Exactly what HP is betting on the vast majority of free subs would do.
...untill another year down the road when we get notice of a $1/month increase.

I have 2 printers on the free plan right now. Yet, for $30 I'm considering a 3rd for my parents house.

The 15 page a month Instant Ink plan is free.

If you are an occasional user then refilling would be waste of money due to possible ink drying and printer head clogging .. etc.

The free for 15 pages a month with $1.25 for 10 pages overage should work fine for you.

It has been on since 2014 (IIRC), don't think its going anywhere esp. given that its a one way upgrade so a perfect trap to get people to sign up into paid plans after experiencing the convenience of ink subscriptions. Also there is a good chance free tier users going into overage net HP enough profit to cover the "15 pages free" for everyone.
In all honesty, I would be inclined to pay the $4/month. Exactly what HP is betting on the vast majority of free subs would do.
...untill another year down the road when we get notice of a $1/month increase.
I don't think it would be wise of them to just scrap the tier, if its no longer free then current overage "10 for $1.25" would make a perfect startup tier that many wouldn't mind signing up for.

Never had an hp printer that lasted more than a year.
Deskjets are not exactly your workhorse of printers, perfect for occasional use though (when coupled with instant ink plans) and you can cheaply get direct replacement warranty for them ($20 for 4 years at BB, $6 for 3 years at TheSource, $6 for 1 year at Staples), not to mention most credit cards will extended the manufacturer warranty to another year at no cost to you.

The Envy 4250 "was" a better purchase for just $6 more.

Which of these is the best (for very occasional use, no photos, mostly black and white, etc)? Or are they all basically the same model with different numbers?
