Keep in mind that once you enroll in the free trial, you are excluded from the free printing tier (15 pages per month) forever.

Also the existing threads on the $29.99 HP 3833 and the $39.99 HP 4650 for those that want some additional input on those models / instant ink.

Not quite. You can 'de-register' your printer from the account and register it as a new printer.

That’s good to know. When you re register you use a new email?
On the phone they told me if you call them before the trial ends they can switch to the free again

You are correct, but that does not solve the issue raised by @shorfd: you will not be able to re-register with the old cartridges at that point; my understanding is that the Instant Ink program is not tied to a printer but is rather tied to those specially marked cartridges; even if you successfully de-register your printer and then register it again as a new printer, at that point you will still have to buy a new set of Instant Ink cartridges ($60ish) if you want to sign up for the free 15 prints per month plan. For that price ($60ish), you are better off buying a new printer at that point (which comes with starter cartridges that qualify for the Instant Ink program).

I'll put this here in case someone finds it useful =)

I made this graph to see where it makes sense to upgrade to higher tiers. Two things to keep in mind:
1. You can't go back to the free package once you upgrade.
2. This doesn't account for the fact that higher tiers have larger carryover buffers (making the higher tiers the better choice sooner for those who don't have very consistent printing patterns).

My key observation:
1. There's a very small range where it is optimal to buy into the "Occasional" package (IE where the red line is the lowest), it almost always makes sense to stick with free or go to moderate.
2. I personally would stick to "Free" until it's clear I exceed 65-70 pages per month since there's no going back, and because it's around there where the Free, Occassional and Moderate packages reach rough parity.
