MY FAMILY has always had a printer at
home, as it’s one of the essentials for
common tasks like printing letters and
recipes, making copies of important documents and so on. However, I always
cringed when I heard the sound of the
printer being used, because I knew it
meant one thing: using up expensive ink.
The new cartridges cost almost as much
as the machine.
I decided to find a way to solve this
printer-phobia. First, I tried a do-it-yourself inkjet cartridge refill kit, but found
it very messy and hard.
The next solution was smarter. I purchased a new printer at Costco, making
sure that it used inkjet cartridges that
are refillable at the Photo Center in my
The service is easy to use. You just
remove the empty cartridges from your
printer (my manual gave easy instructions) and take them to the nearest
Costco Photo Center. Refills are done in
about an hour, so you can drop them off
and do your Costco shopping. Prices start
at ;;.;; per cartridge, depending on the
type of cartridge.
What about quality? Costco uses
high-quality inks that work perfectly with
your supported HP, Canon, Epson or
Brother printer, says Steve Pruitt, the
buyer for Costco Photo Centers.
Refilling ink cartridges clearly is a
money saver. A refill saves up to ;; per-
cent or more, compared with the price
of a new cartridge. It’s also a smart envi-
ronmental choice. Research has found
that about ;; percent of printer car-
tridges are thrown away after just one
use. That amounts to some ;;; million
empty cartridges ending up in U.S. land-
fills each year.
“We think this is a great service for
our members,” Pruitt says. “It’s a win-win
because it saves money and is good for
the environment. And like everything we
do at Costco, top quality is our first goal.”
