Possible problems after canceling HP Instant Ink

When you cancel the HP Instant Ink service, it will still be valid until the end of the current Free Plan or any of the paid plans. After this, your HP Instant Ink cartridge will not work, and you need to replace it with standard replacement ink cartridges. This can cause problems, such as printing, interrupted mid-page or not being able to print anything at all. If you plan to cancel HP Instant Ink, buy a replacement ink cartridge before you do this so you can continue printing.

If you notice any additional charges after you’ve canceled the HP Instant Ink service and the billing period is over, use DoNotPay to contest these unwanted expenses.

Will HP Instant Ink free trial auto-renew into a paid subscription?

To get up to 300 free pages with the HP Instant Ink service, you need to choose one of the paid plans. Once you do this, you should be offered a trial period. When the trial period is over, your subscription will automatically be renewed into the paid plan you choose when signing up. The trial period is not available if you select the Free Plan (15 pages/month).

DoNotPay has your back after the free trial is over

The most common problem with the auto-renew option is that you forget about it. This can lead to an undesired charge on your credit card after the free trial is over. You don’t have to worry about this if you use Do Not Pay’s virtual credit card. If you decide to use our virtual credit card, HP Instant Ink (or any other service) won’t be able to charge you after the trial period.   

Allow DoNotPay to monitor all of your subscriptions

Unused subscriptions can cost you a lot of money! An average American spends over $360 per year on unused subscription services. If you believe to be one of them, start monitoring all your subscriptions before you waste any more money. DNP can do this for you and help you detect the subscriptions you don’t use and cancel them for you. It is a matter of a few clicks and won’t take more than a minute or two.        

Can you pause the HP Instant Ink subscription and not cancel it?

No. HP Instant Ink doesn’t offer an option to pause or temporarily stop using the service. You will have to cancel it entirely and re-enroll later, when convenient. Downgrading your monthly plan is also an option. Here is how you can change your monthly plan:

  1. Sign in to your HP Instant Ink account
  2. Choose Change Plan in the My Account section.
  3. Select your desired plan when the My Plan section opens.
    • For upgrading: choose when your upgraded plan should start. It can become valid immediately or when a new billing period begins. 
    • For downgrading: your new plan will be in effect when the new billing period starts.  
  4. Click on the Change Plan button.

Does HP Instant Ink give a refund after you cancel the service? 

HP Instant Ink won’t give you a refund if you cancel the service before the billing period is over. To avoid unwanted charges, you should unsubscribe before the current billing period ends.  

Is HP Instant Ink unfair to you? DoNotPay can help you sue them in small claims court
