I have a Epson, and it is very expensive. I have to buy individual ones from Comp USA, nobody else carries it. Did you try Best Buy? Their prices are low, if they carry your brand.

I had a lexmark and I couldn't afford the inks. It was cheaper to buy a whole new printer. That's what I ended up doing. I went and got a Hewlitt Packard for cheaper then the ink. It's insane that it is that way.

Personally I think 123inkjets.com is the cheapest. I use them as well and recommend them to everyone and anyone. Good luck!

Thanks. I will check them out. I also seen that they were cheaper than other stores at costco. I didn`t buy any yet though.

We found that the initial cost of a hp laserJet was higher than a ink jet and the toner cartridges are higher but it last longer so in the long run it is cheaper to use over time. The printing is wonderful too. We got tired of the inkjet smears and mess of pages sticking together. Seemed that we were always replacing cartridges.

thanks for your comment. next time I buy a printer I will have to remember this and look into buying a laser jet printer.

I go to ebay first. If I can't find it there for the price I'm willing to pay then I check elsewhere online. I never get it from the store, they overcharge. I once bought the refill kit and it worked very well but it's messy to refill.

I tried the refill kit once and it was a mess. I will have to try ebay. I`ve never checked there for ink cartridges. Thanks for your response.

I think they all are expensive. I have a very expensive printer, and I cannot even find my inks. They are $16.99 each color. Try searching around on line, and as you did, a posting. Good luck.

those ink cartridges are expensive. I can find mine but they are so costly. I guess I will just have to give in and buy them. thanks for your response.

I use 123inkjets.com for my supplies. Even for some expensive HP cartridges I buy they still cut the price pretty low. They do it by using generic cartridges that have been refilled. You know all those places that take recycled/empty printer cartridges, this is where they go. They are about 50% on Cannon and I'm not sure what prices they have for Lexmark if they have them for your printer. I suggest you check them out.
