New Epson EcoTank Printers Could save You $942 per Litre on Ink Cartridge Refills

Posted by on August 6, 2015 at 8:43 AM

Printer Ink cartridges are something we all know are very expensive. Depending on the type of printer you own or what online deals are currently available, it’s often more cost effective to simply buy a new printer than it is to buy ink cartridge refills for your old one. The chances are, depending on how often you use your printer, that buying a new one will probably be an upgrade as well as a complete refill for less.

New Epson EcoTank Printers Could save You $942 per Litre on Ink Cartridge Refills

In many of my previous articles, I have expressed the importance of comparing the price per unit of products to effectively understand the full value you are receiving when you purchase them. A good example might be comparing the price of petrol or diesel per litre from different fuel stations to see which is less expensive. If you thought petrol was expensive at $1.31 per litre in Sydney though, then you’ll probably be as shocked as I was to learn that for the ink in my printer I’m actually paying a jaw-dropping $1,183 per litre.

Luckily though, Epson have released a bold new range of “EcoTank” printers that look like they could potentially save me $942 in ink costs by comparison. If these figures turn out to be accurate once the EcoTank printers reach Australian shores, it could well turn out to be a game changer for the printer industry. HP, Canon and Brother, beware!

Epson LabelWorks LW-300 – why ridiculous (and drop) shipping kills an awesome deal.

Posted by on January 17, 2013 at 10:13 PM

I recently posted this cashback promo from Epson on their LW-300 and LW-400 label printers.

Epson LabelWorks LW 300   why ridiculous (and drop) shipping kills an awesome deal.

The offer of $30 back on the LW-300 got me thinking that you must be able to use this on a bargain price to get the printer for virtually nothing. Who wants to pay $60 for a label printer. $10 maybe….. So I started checking around. Getting excited I found a good price at 4 different places. It looked like I might be able to get the price down to $10 after the Epson cashback.

What I dug up, in order of price are the following stores:

Epson LabelWorks LW 300   why ridiculous (and drop) shipping kills an awesome deal.IT Spot – $40.31 and in stock.

Tech4U.com.au – $40.34 and in stock

WAComputers – $40.47 and in stock.

Printer Supermarket – $42.16 and in stock

We were doing hunky…… and I figured they should at least have pick up in one of those places to avoid shipping. What I found made me laugh.

It Spot, Tech4U and WA Computers all have slightly different pricing and overall layouts but identical item descriptions and the exact same shipping blurb page. The similarities are so much so as to happily say they are all the same merchant. Of course pick up isnt available and shipping, the only option, is a ‘bargain’ at $15.95. WAComputers…. right….. maybe WA refers to Western Alberta or something.

That left me on Printer Supermarket. Maybe I can still get that $10. Nope… they were happy to sell me the label printer for $42 but it was going to cost me $33 to have it shipped. Thats a mighty impressive price for a location thats 100% owned and operated in Australia. So impressive the shipping charge equates to 78% on the cost of the item.

One day I’ll lose my naivety. In the meantime its back to the drawing board. Otherwise a good promo Epson. Can any of you beat that 78% on top shipping cost on something you’ve bought ?
