I just bought a Canon Pixma MP180 All-In-One printer. Researched the following for best prices on ink cartridges: Canon on-line store, Walmart, Circuit City, Best Buy, Office Depot & Fry's Electronics. Right now, Fry's is coming in with the best price, about a dollar cheaper than the Canon site. Anyone found a better source?

Keep searching...also keep in mind that if you order it online to save $5, then you might have to pay $10 shipping and handling. If you try to save money by buying it from a local store, then you might end up paying more due to taxes. A site with free shipping is good. A coupon to a local store is nice too!

Also, remember that you might have to take it back for some reason, in which case it's easier and quicker to bring it back to a local store rather than to ship it to the other side of the country at your expense. :flowers:

Just somethings to keep in mind! :thumbsup: :trumpet:

Thanks for the tips! Had thought about the downside to shipping charges. But I hadn't thought about a defective cartridge, as I have never encountered one before with my Dell Printer. All I have local is Circuit City & Best Buy, which charge the same as or more than Canon direct on-line. Unfortunately, the nearest Fry's is in Austin an hour away. :thumbsup: But we drive down there 1-2 times a month, so looks like I'm going to be finding where the Fry's is in Austin. Thanks for your help, Steve.

For anyone interested interested in my search findings, Abacus24-7.com is two dollars less for the PG-50 black hi-yield; four dollars less on the CL-51 color hi-yield. :flowers: And they are "Genuine" Canon cartridges, not what is called Compatible, Refurbed, Remanufactured or OEM. Bizrate.com gives this company a good rating.
