Its operation is also very simple. HP Instant Ink It is a service that has the user as a priority, and that is why he maintains control of his subscription at all times. However, although the conditions of use of HP Instant Ink are very clear and very easy to understand, it is normal that there may be certain doubts that some consumers, especially those with less experience, cannot always resolve.
We are totally aware of this, in fact we have seen in some comments of previous articles that there are still some important things about HP Instant Ink that you do not finish being clear, and that is why we have decided to give shape to this article, where we are going to review, and solve, five frequent doubts about HP Instant Ink. As always, if after reading the article you have any other questions, you can leave it in the comments and we will be happy to help you solve it.
1.-What happens if I am subscribed to HP Instant Ink and I don’t print anything for a month?
This is one of the most frequently asked questions, and it is also one of the most important. HP Instant Ink works with a billing model based on printing plans that include, for a fixed fee, a certain number of pages per month. These are the available plans:
- 10 pages per month for 0.99 euros: you can expand in packs of 10 pages per
- 50 pages per month for 3.99 euros: you can expand in packs of 10 pages per
- 100 pages per month for 5.99 euros: you can expand in packs of 10 pages per
- 300 pages per month for 11.99 euros: you can expand in packs of 10 pages
for one euro.
- 700 pages per month for 24.99 euros: you can expand in packs of 15 pages
for one euro.
If you don’t print anything for a month, or if you don’t consume all the pages included in your plan, these will roll over to the next month. This accumulation of pages will also occur in consecutive months, and you will be able to accumulate up to three times the number of pages included in your plan.
To understand it better, let’s see an example. Imagine that you sign up for the plan that includes 50 pages per month, and one month you do not print any pages. The next month, you will have available those 50 pages that you did not consume and the 50 pages of the new month, that is, You can print 100 pages in total, and at no additional cost.
2.-Why can I save up to 70% on ink with HP Instant Ink?
This is possible thanks to the billing model based on pages printed and not ink consumed that uses HP Instant Ink. When you print a high-quality color page covering the entire surface of the paper, it will cost you the same as another page printed in low-quality black and white.
No matter how you print, with HP Instant Ink each page will cost the same. You’ll be able to enjoy color without having to worry about how much ink you’re using, and you’ll have the peace of mind that the printer is continually monitoring ink levels to order new cartridges when needed. These new cartridges will arrive at your home, and without shipping costs.
Let’s go again with an example. You have signed up for the plan that includes 100 pages per month, and one month you have printed 70 pages in black and white and 30 in color, but the next month you have printed all 100 pages in full color and with high quality. Don’t worry, in both cases you will pay the same, 11.99 euros.
3.-Will additional charges be applied to the cost of my subscription?
No. With HP Instant Ink you will only pay your subscription fee, as long as you stay within the page limits included in your plan. This means that additional charges will only apply if you exceed the number of pages that includes the plan you have chosen. It is something that is very clear when looking at the list of each plan.
Thus, for example, if you have signed up for the plan that includes 10 pages per month for 0.99 euros but you print a total of 20 pages in a month, the charge for a pack of additional pages will apply. If some month you need to print more, you can change your plan directly to a higher plan, and then you can return to the plan you originally had without any problem.
So that you are always aware of the status of your plan, and so that you can decide what you want to do, HP Instant Ink will inform you when you are close to reaching the maximum pages included in your plan. In this way, you can draw the plan that best suits your needs at that time: consume the pages you have left, buy additional page packs or upgrade to a higher plan.
4.-What will happen to my printer if I unsubscribe from HP Instant Ink?
Nothing. your printer will continue to function normally, and you can print without problem. However, you should keep in mind that the cartridges you used were linked to HP Instant Ink, and that these will stop working when you unsubscribe, so you will have to use other cartridges.
It is an important detail that we must be clear about because I have evidence of users who, after unsubscribing, have tried to continue using those cartridges, and have been surprised to see that they do not work. When you subscribe to HP Instant Ink you don’t buy cartridges, you only pay a fee for printing a certain number of pages, so it is totally normal that, when you unsubscribe, those cartridges stop working.
You can return the cartridges to HP without any problem, and if at any time you want to sign up for HP Instant Ink again You can do it online and in just a few minutes.
5.-Do I have to assume some kind of commitment?
We have already told you in the previous point, and the answer is no. With HP Instant Ink, not only do you not assume any type of commitment, but you can also change plans at any time, with total freedom and as many times as you want, either up (to a higher plan) or down (to a higher plan). lower).
You have full control over your subscription, you can carry out numerous procedures online through your customer account, and you will also not have to give any explanation if at any time you decide to unsubscribe. Your doors will always be open, so you can sign up for HP Instant Ink again whenever you want.
HP Instant Ink is, as we told you at the beginning, a service that gives total priority to the user, and therefore does not force the user to stay. This is the one that decides, in the end, to continue using this service to enjoy all those advantages and those unique values that it offers.
