How To Get a Laser Printer All in One For Free

Introduction

Laser printers ink supply last much longer and their print output is often crisper, even at lower resolutions than their inkjet counterparts. Unfortunately, their long-lasting ink supply is the reason why it is difficult to find great deals on all in one laser printers. It is easy to find free inkjet all in one printer included with computer packages. The reason for this is because most of the money made on inkjet printer is through the frequent replacing of toner. Although consumers can use cheaper refillable toner cartridges and non-brand name toner cartridges, they do so at their own risk because if something happens to their printer, they have voided their warranty by not using inkjet toner cartridges manufactured by the inkjet printer's company. Free laser all in ones are available, but consumers have to work harder to find these deals.

Step 1

Check the websites of all in one laser printer manufacturers because they may offer a two for one deal where they include a free older model laser printer if a newer model is purchased. This type of deal is usually only available during the launch of a new printer or to increase sales and awareness of a newer printer model that hasn't sold as well as expected. This kind of deal is great for small businesses because one printer can be used as the main printer and the free printer can be available as a backup.

Step 2

To have first access to these deals, get on the mailing lists of these manufactures and be prepared to act quickly because these type of deals have a very short window of opportunity. Also be prepared to accept a factory refurbished all in one laser printer as the freebie printer. Factory refurbished printers are usually just a reliable as brand new printers, but they may have been floor models or returns. These items are inspected to make sure they are in great condition before they are offered to the public.

Step 3

Enter contests where you agree to buy a certain amount of toner within a specified period of time. These contest offer free all in one laser printers because contest entrants agree to buy enough toner to make it worth while to the manufacturer to offer the printer free. Sometimes these contests are straight contests where all an entrant needs to do is provide an email address. Others may require a bit more work on the entrants part because they may be expected to answer questions, write a short essay or even sign up for something else in order to get a chance at the free printer.

Step 4

Read the rules of these contests carefully because sometimes these contests are simple contests where all an contest entrant needs to do is provide an email address. Others may require a bit more work on the entrant's part because they may be expected to answer questions, write a short essay or even sign up for something else in order to get a chance at the free printer.

Step 5

Keep an eye out for local brick and mortar and online electronic store sales, especially during holidays because they may offer a limited amount of free all in one laser printers to a set number of their first early morning customers. These types of deals are usually offered during heavily promoted shopping days like the day after Thanksgiving Day, also known as Black Friday because of its ability to help put a retail business in the black if sales are strong enough.

Tips

  • Keep a eye on your emails because emails that seem like junk may actually include great opportunities to get a free all in one laser printer.
  • Always buy new toner for your new printer immediately because most printers only come with starter toner cartridges, which provide much less toner than full toner cartridges.
