Hello to all,
Okay it's time to buy ink for my Canon i960 printer and while the ink cost is around $10-11.00 per tank from Office Depot and such like stores, a friend sent me a link for supermediastore.com with their ink cost. It's all 6 tanks for $38-39.00. Yeah sounds to good to be true but are there any "ink" dealers that can give a better price than places like Office Depot that any members here have had great luck with?
I don't want to destroy my printer (I love this printer) with "Crap" ink since I print alot of photos from it.
Thank you for replys ahead of time :)

Gone but not forgotten.
I buy packages from BJ's Wholesale Club with Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and two Black Canon cartridges for about $45.00. Also, if you buy from Staples, they discount the ink but I usually go there to buy my Red, Green, Photo Cyan, and Photo Magenta. Buying two at a time brings them to $11.25 each, four will cost $11.00 each. Adorama.com, JandR.com, and Amazon.com have other deals but you won't get the best price on all of the cartridges at the same place.

Thanks, I didn't even think of BJ'S and there is one 5 mins. from me so I'll check them out. I just got back from Target and didn't have my wallet on me :rolleyes: they have Canon ink marked down $10.24 each so either way I'll be getting some today and can resume printing :D

Staples just made a liar of me today. I ran out of ink while printing some photo orders and I went there and bought a Photo Cyan and a Photo Magenta cartridge and they were $12.27 each.

I'll have to check their online store. They have free shipping with most orders of $50 or more and just shipped some stuff that I couldn't get into my car.

I went to Office Depot before going to Target and they would only give a price break if you buy two or more of the same color. I like to print but not for $98.00 worth of ink at one shot :eek: Any way Target only had one of the colors left (always could use more black I guess) :rolleyes:

The GENUINE Canon tanks can be had as a kit at B and H Photo and Video for around $60.00

I would not recommend using the third-party rips that are out there, especiall if you do photography.
