Today, let’s do some math. Here’s the picture of a Carrefour product catalog. I look through the pages and found this:
Let’s assume that they put the ink cartridge and printer side-by-side in a way that the ink is compatible with the printer.
Now, If I want to buy a printer, which way is less expensive way of ink usage? Below are tables showing the expense for a month. Assume that the ink will be out in one week. (sorry for the misspell for ‘catridge’, Microsoft didn’t tell me, but who cares?)
OPTION 1 : Buy the printer for the 1st week and continuously buy the ink for the following weeks.
OPTION 2 : Buy the printer every week.
So which one is money saving? You decide….
