Does anyone have any great sources for cheap or discounted printer cartridges?  I have an HP 3520 printer and the ink is just about out.  I'm figuring there must be some websites that sell them for cheaper than Target or those office supply stores (where I usually get them out of convenience).  TIA!

Have you tried Amazon?

 

I've used this company twice:  http://www.cartridgeworld.com/country.aspx .  Once the ink worked perfectly, and the second time it seemed to have issues and didn't print well.

Just checked amazon (good thinking!) and found this:  http://www.amazon.com/C8727AN-C8728AN-Remanufactured-Cartridges-Hewlett-Packard/dp/B000VSHX6A/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1350865161&sr=8-6&keywords=hp+ink+cartridge+28

 

$11.50?!  I'm gonna try it out and see how they work.

WOW!  Thank you for that link.  My HP printer has been out of ink for months because I have been too "frugal"(cheap and broke) to buy more.

IDK if its in your budget but I broke down and bought a laser printer. Yes it was $$ but the cartridge is $80 at staples and I haven't bought a new one in 2 years.  I've printed off entire workbooks for DS online classes.  I'm still using the 'free' cartridge that came with the printer. Staples had a trade in event where I got some $$ off the new printer so the total cost was under $150 for this thing (printer, copier, fax, scanner) and my life is so much easier.  This thing is the best investment I've made in a very long time!
