duh, thanks! i googled a bit and found some but it looks like you can only add them to a new account, not an existing account.

I give up, where do you add the promo codes? My II account page has a blank for prepaid codes, and it won't accept promo codes.

No, sorry for the confusion. When I was signing up for our account it let me put in multiple codes.

Where are people finding current (valid) Instant Ink promo codes? Not somebody's referral codes.

It's hilarious the complaints people have against this printer on various sites
Don't buy this product. It doesn't come with the special phone cord that makes it possible to fax. And I can't find this special cord anywhere.
Like, HUH?????????

And the complaints on that it was difficult to setup. This by far has been the easiest AIO Wifi capable I've used

Ya on staples one guy said he had to manually turn the page over to print on the other side. Talk about user error.

Word on the street is if you add codes for free months, you can no longer go back to the free 15 page / month free plan. Can anyone cofirm or deny this?

Is anyone able to compile a quick summary of this instant ink program and sorta what the strategic decision is based on?

If I just wanted to simply use the printer.....and run the ink down till it's empty ... This will work naturally?

This instant ink program doesn't appear to have any advantages for me (although all this talk confuses me if it is beneficial or not)...and I don't want to randomly run out of ink or get charged a subscription.

You aren't forced to use Instant Ink in any way. The printer comes with ink, albeit less-than-full "starter" cartridges, and you can replace them with standard cartridges when they run out. There's even a chance that the printer will work with non-HP and refilled ink as well.

Well without breaking down the numbers to calculate the costs, this program should technically be cheaper. Since we are getting the ink from HP directly, they are cutting the costs of purchasing retail. But will this end up working out to be cheaper than refilling the cartridges yourself, probably not.

But for the many of us in this topic that got the 8710 for $10!!!! and then to call in to get the free 15 page a month plan, it’s a no brainer. Since program is by page, doesn’t matter if page of a single black . or full colour photo page, considered the same usage.

But each of us has to consider our own usage pattern and compare this monthly fee if you print more than 15 pages a month to cost of purchasing outright ($50ish for black XL, $40ish per colour XL) to refilling at a store ($20/$15) vs refilling your self.

There was a thread/deal last June for the HP 4520. Picked one up for about $36, thinking that it was a great deal (with free 15 page instant ink). This deal for the 8710 for as low as $10 is even better - almost like getting the printer for free (which is the way it should be - they make $$$ on the ink :facepalm: ). Currently setup with the free 2 months option. Hope to switch to the free 15 page plan as I don't need to print lots of colour... if I did print more, I'd probably go for the $3.99 / 50 page plan. Figure that for about $48 per year, it would be worthwhile vs buying individual cartridges/refills. That's just my 2 cents...

Thanks OP for a great deal! Thumbs Up Sign Happy Easter all... Rabbit Face
I can't afford to save that much!

How does this printer fare in comparison to other business-class nkjets for text quality, then picture/photo quality?
