Really happy with the Envy photo 7855 I got last year, and even happier I haven't pay a cents on 12 months of ownership.
On my 3rd set of ink already.

Good that I can keep this 15 free page plan, now I hope this printer don't die on me.

Here's what the chat rep mentioned -

Great! Iif you want I can help you to make the change to the 15 pages free plan right now, however since the plan will be for free you will not see the 5 free months promotion available since we will not charge you
Or you can take advantage of the free trial by selecting any other page plan and see which one better fit your needs :)

I asked him to go ahead and change my plan to the free plan.

I also received the email. I had wondered if it was because I occasionally go over and have to pay out of pocket for printing.

Just throwing this out there.

I got my printer end of nov so I didn't get a choice of using the free plan at all. After seeing the last couple post i decided i'd go on the virtual assistant to see if they would be able to move me into the free plan. 5 min later on the chat, she moved me over to the free plan! :)

Is this free instant program linked to the printer or the email account of the user? Let’s say if I buy an used printer with instant ink registered, can that be transferred to new person

LOL, I got it on the same day. May be it was a one day deal of thing (if I remember correctly). I got mind replaced under warranty in June.

It appears that only the "printer/owner" pair is grandfathered (not your account for other printers or the printer for other accounts), If you transfer ownership the printer will need to be re-enrolled under the new account and the free tier won't be available.
btw, seems that you don't even need the previous owner to "unenroll" the printer from their side, disable/re-enable the webservices on the printer local management web page will force drop it out of the previous owner account.

Ouch, after I saw discontinuation, I didn't bother enrolling in the free program. That being said, I hardly used this printer =/. I might be able to get away with the stock ink before going on their $1.25 tier.

Did you grab the 2 free months or more of free printing?

me too, decided to activated another printer i had unopened and did a virtual chat asking where did the free plan go during enrolment and they said it was not offered anymore but that they can help me downgrade any plan to the same ones as my old printer

picked the $3.99 plan and it came with 2 months free printing for up to 300 pages each month, but next billing cycle will downgrade to the free plan.

i dont really print much so even trial months are kind of useless, rather have 15 pages free for life*

*life meaning until they decide to revoke it again

Also got the email. But I actually changed to $1.25 plan a few weeks ago and got offered 4 months free.... so does it mean it will be converted back to actual "FREE" plan automatically or I need to contact customer service?

Took 2 years to realize they are losing loads of money on any plan under $3.00/month

High five for being grandfathered in the free tier forever?
