    This is more of a tip than advertising. I think many of us are strapped for cash and tired of Epson and other printer companies screwing us over for ink.

    I got sick and tired of paying $15.99 per cartridge, or even $46 for all three at discount at Costco. A few weeks ago I decided to take a chance on those remanufactured ink cartridges that you can buy online. An independent article ranked 4inkjets.com as the best. I bought ink for two printers and the cartridges were only $5.99 each. They work great, and they ship them to you in like 2 days. This is not a refill kit. These are cartridges filled with ink and original computer chip reset. Best money-saving move I've made lately.

    They even have ink cartridges for old printers. Check out your model on the left. I waited until I could see for myself if it was a deal before I posted here.

    You just have to be careful of one thing....

    Some companies code an expiration date into their cartridges. Therefore, you may on occasion have to trick your printer into thinking it is a few years ago for some refilled cartridges to work properly.

    From what I read on the site, they reset the code on the chip to work. You can see that the remanufactured cartridges are original OEM cartridges with, in my case, an Epson chip. (It says Epson on the chip)

    I first bought a couple of blacks to try it out, then all the other cartridges. Working fine.

    That's good news. I wasn't aware of any re manufactured ink cartridge suppliers that tweaked the onboard chipset.

    Yeah, here's a blurb for one of the cartridges:
