One of the biggest expenses we face as couponers, is on laptops and printers, ink & paper. When it comes to printers, you can save money by knowing which brands to buy. I’ve put together a little guide with the best printers to use for printing coupons depending on how often you print and what your other printing needs are.
Before you swipe your credit card, let’s answer a few questions about choosing the best printer for printing coupons:
1. What kind of printer is needed? Do you just need to print or will copying and faxing be in your future?
2. Will you be printing from a mobile device or tablet?
3. Do you need a wi-fi printer?
4. How many pages will you be printing per day?
If you are printing basic text documents and coupons (not a lot of them), you won’t need a fancy printer. Priced at under $50 you’ll want to consider a HP Deskjet Printer which is the basic of basic printers priced at under $50.
In the instance you see a home office in your near future, you may want to go ahead and purchase a all-in-one now. Often these models offer wi-fi and are compact! In addition, you are saving money by having three devices in one. Prices on all-in-one printers have come down over the past few years.
I, personally have an all-in-one printer and love it! The copier comes in handy with school projects for the kids and crafts ideas!
Printing Coupons from Mobile Device or iPad:
If you are planning on printing coupons from your iPad or mobile phone, you’ll want to consider the HP Officejet Pro 8600 e-All-in-One Wireless Color Printer which offers wireless printing, fax, scan, copy, touchscreen navigation and a e-print feature! HP wireless printers are also currently the only brand of printers that work with Coupons.com.
If you do a lot of coupon printing, consider purchasing a laser printer. The prices are very reasonable and will end up saving you money on ink refills since they last longer. Priced at under $150 the Brother HL-2275DW Compact Laser Printer with Wireless Networking and Duplex is a great option!
Now that you know what printers save you money and being educated on the type of printer you need you’ll be able to make a educated purchase!
