Expensive printers are not necessary. Color printing is also not necessary unless you have a store that requires it. Look for a basic model if simply printing coupons is what you need your machine to do.
When finding your printing costs for coupons, you should consider these items:
- Cost of the printer
- Cost of the printer ink
- Cost of paper
- Average number of pages ink cartridge covers
- The Canon Pixma iP4820 - 4.7 cents per page
- Epson Stylus NX625 All-in-One Printer - 3 cents per page
- Epson WorkForce 520 All-in-One-Printer - 2.8 cents per page
The HP Officejet 6000 Wireless - 4.8 cents per page
- HP Officejet 6500A Plus e-All-in-One - 2.7 cents per page
My "Ultimate Coupon Machine" is the Brother HL-2240 Mono Lazer Printer. It is currently priced at $79.99 at Staples. This is a basic black and white laser printer with no bells or whistles. A high yield ink cartridge prints an average of 2600 pages per ink cartridge. Staples sells the toner for an outlandish price of $78. Brother Black High Yield Toner Cartridge (TN450) can be found at Amazon for $44.79, however I've been able to locate it through various online deals several times for no higher than $15.90.
The average print cost......$.006 per page. That's around half a cent. Now that's frugal coupon printing! Even at the Amazon price, your printing cost would be $.017, which is far better than ANY of the printers listed by Yahoo Finance.
