HP Instant Ink is an ink replacement system that gives customers the ability to save up to 50 percent on ink costs while ensuring that they never run out of ink. Printing plans are $2.99 a month for up to 50 pages, $4.99 a month for up to 100 pages, and $9.99 a month for up to 300 pages. Plans count printed pages and not the amount of ink used so, you can print high-quality color photos or black and white documents, all for the same low price. In addition, unused pages roll over from month-to-month up to the number of pages designated in your monthly plan (if you have the 50 page plan, you can roll over up to 50 pages). Ink, shipping and cartridge recycling are included in the price, with HP providing pre-paid envelopes to return used cartridges as part of the HP Planet Partners program.
HP Instant Ink is currently available on the HP ENVY 4500, HP ENVY 5530, HP ENVY 5640, HP ENVY 5660, HP ENVY 7640, HP Officejet 4630, HP Officejet 5740, HP Officejet 6810, HP Officejet 8040, HP Officejet Pro 6830, HP Officejet Pro 8610, HP Officejet Pro 8620 and HP Officejet Pro 8630.
