We are no longer sending out the newsletter so please DON'T subscribe. You can read it online by clicking the link on the bottom right of the screen. In the newsletter you will find the bonus code which will give you 5% off orders of $20 or more.
The newsletter contains the latest information on printers and cartridges, online scam warnings, products, services and software we recommend (much of it free). We also include links to human interest stories and items submitted by subscribers. If there is a topic you would like to see, let us know.
I just wanted to send you a note thanking you for the newsletter. Yours is the only newsletter from any sort of vendor I have ever subscribed to (on purpose), and I always find it entertaining and helpful. I also like the way you personalize it with things from your own life and experience. I feel like I am dealing with a person and not just a company trying to sell me products from China.
Your informative, direct, personalized newsletter is a joy and much appreciated. Very unexpected and a pleasant surprise to find a wholesome human being behind the sales counter. Worldly view of things, and funny dogs videos are an extra bonus. We can all use a light break, even when looking for ink cartridges.
Why we no longer email the newsletter A few morons signed up for the discount and then reported us for spam. A few sites (AOL, Yahoo) will block a site or even an entire server on the basis of 2 or 3 spam complaints. Customers emailed us with questions and our replies were blocked because of the complaints of a few morons. On top of that, we could not even remove them from our list because in some cases their emails were forwarded to other IDs and the complaining ID was not even on our list.
Then there are the actual spammers who spoof IDs. Someone recently called to complain that she received 200 emails from bestinkandtoner.com. We never send mail from that domain and would certainly not send so many emails to anyone. Some spammer spoofed that ID (which is very easy to do and there is no way for us to prevent it). It did NOT go through our server. A knowledgeable person can look at the email headers and figure out where it really came from. But AOL, Yahoo and other lazy companies don't bother. If it says Bestinkandtoner, then Bestinkandtoner must be blocked. I wonder how much spam is sent from AOL and Yahoo IDs and how they would feel if other ISPs blocked all their email over it.
