Where to Get a Printer?

Ask a Question

I have been looking for a new printer for less than £50 but most of them seem to be out of stock.

Does anyone know where to buy a new printer for less than £50?

Amazon and Ebay are good places to look. 🙂

Go to Deals, then type ‘printer‘ into the search box. I have posted some recently.

Wait a while ! I noticed most of the cheaper ranges of printers have been sold out a month ago . Presumably due to an increase in home working /educating.

You could always get one of the cheaper HPs for £25 - £35 but they seem sold out everywhere ,even the HP store !

Just wait a while - they have been out of stock for over a month now so will presumably be back in stock soon and the offers will recommence .

I've a HP one and have the Instant Ink programme which is free if you print less than 15 pages a month and £1 for every 10 additional pages. The printer itself was around £20 and I've never had to buy ink for it.

May I ask you how does the Instant Ink programme work? If I sign up to it can I buy additional ink for it somewhere else or I’m committed to the program?

Thank you so much rararachel for talking the time to respond 🤗 I had a HP printer for years but never thought about that, I will definitely look into that 👍

Oh I should add that the ink levels is monitored so they automatically know if you're running short on ink and send you more. It has worked well for me but I am not a heavy user.

Check cartridge costs before buying. That is far more important than where you buy it and just searching for 'printer' on here, Google or anywhere online won't help with that. The cheapest printers often cost the most to run once you have used up the free ink. As rararachel said, you get 15 free pages a month with HP. The monthly fees they charge beyond that are quite expensive for what you get though. Epsons are usually the cheapest to run because of the very low third party cartridge prices. You just have to be careful not to block them with crap ink. It's worth mentioning what you need the printer for and how often you'll use it.

Thank you. Great advice. We mostly use our printer for printing labels and pages for the kids home schooling.

Zuharah No problem. Quality-wise, all the inkjet printers will be fine for your needs. Some are faster than others but I doubt that's particularly important either. One other factor I forgot to mention was WiFi. If you get a printer with WiFi which most seem to have now anyway, it's easier to print from multiple devices eg. phones as well as your laptop or PC.

I bought a refurbished HP printer for next to nothing on eBay and managed to get a three month trial of unlimited free ink. If you just need a printer short term, that'll be your best option. Just make sure you buy from a reputable seller who refurbishes printers for a living.

I got mine from Argos for £30 on sale. But the ink cartridges are very expensive round about £12 if I'm lucky. So definitely worth looking at the ink prices before buying printer
