Does anyone still accept empty printer cartridges and give you back a free ream of paper anywhere?? I have a couple empty lexmark cartridges and didn't know if anyone near me did this and if they do, is it only certain types of cartridges?? Thanks

Julie, I don't know about the free ram of paper. But I do know that if you have a staples reward card, you can take back your empty cartridges (limit of 5 per month) and get $3.00 back in rewards for each. And this week they have a special promotion going on that they will make it $6.00 per cartridge. I'm glad that I haven't done any yet this month because on Saturday I will be bringing in my limit of 5 which will be $30.00 coming back to me. You might want to look into this. It's free to join and then the rewards you can use to purchase the paper (which I only buy when it's $1.00 per ream). Hope this helps. :)

I think that Staples promotion is only for HP cartridges, and only if you buy $50 worth of HP ink in the same day.

Not a deal per say, but our elementary school collects them at the office, and probably does what you are talking about. It helps support the school a bit. Maybe your school does too. You could ask and if not you could suggest they start and coordinate it for them! That's how they buy their supplies I think.

Our Staples lets us do 10 a month for $3 each total of $30 per month. It is great!

I don't think office depot gives you three dollars, they give you points on your rewards card like a $3 purchase, you can bring in 5 a day. Office depot and Office max used to give you a free ream of paper.
