With plans starting as low as $2.99 per month this program is suitable for everyone including college students on a budget.  So whether you’re printing in black & white or in color you are charged by pages printed and not by ink cartridges alone.  With no commitments you can change or cancel your plan at anytime and also all pages unused monthly will roll over to the next month.  I love that as soon as my printer is approaching lower than normal ink range my printer will send a message to HP Ink services to get me new cartridges sent out.

The monthly plans range from $2.99 per month – $9.99 per month.
