    Looks like this is still working! Got my free sample of Bio True from Bausch + Lomb today, and I was surprised how large it is... like 1/2 a bottle! It also came with 2 nice coupons ($2 off and $1 off-inside box) Just say "no" when you fill out the form. http://www.biotruechallenge.com/solution/tryit

    Thanks Diane! I have used those tricks, but I guess I just do a lot of printing :-) I did just find a $5 off HP ink coupon for Rite Aid on their FB page, but hoping to find more of a long term solution. I'll check out compandsave.com! Thanks again!

    RaleighFoodBlogger - You probably already know this trick, but to save ink, print your coupons in black ink (as opposed to color) and if your printer has a "draft" quality setting (as opposed to Normal or Best,) that option works great for printing coupons.

    In respect to ink for your printer, if you have an ink jet printer, your best bet is remanufactured and/or generic ink jet cartridges (unless you're able to pick up new/HP cartridges cheap through Staples Rewards you've earned and/or coupons, etc.) North Raleigh Dad posted about CompandSave.com that has some decent deals. They offer a flat $3.99 shipping, as well.

    jdouglas- thanks for the tip on the Epson... my HP is killing me w/the ink costs. Anyone else have any input as well, on the cheapest way to print- just for coupons?

    Glad I have the free paper from Staples ...that's a long HT list...getting tired.

    Diana123, you really need to get a printer!! A lot of places have had them pretty inexpensively for back to school. We have a little Epson that we bought mainly for coupons that was vey cheap and the ink isn't expensive for it either.

    You're not thinking it's a special printer that just prints coupons, are you? Any printer will do! :)
