Buying Epson cartridges

Now that the VAT loophole has been closed for the Channel Islands, suppliers such as 7 Dayshop are no longer cheap places to buy genuine Epson cartridges. Any suggestions of alternatives would be greatly appreciated

I've used this seller for ages, never had a problem!

I used to buy my genuine Canon PGI-9's for the 9500 II from 7 Dayshop I am looking for another suplier, or replace the printer?

Any advice?

I am still finding that the channel island sites like 7dayshop are still much cheaper than the mainland sites ............ I certainly wouldn't use compatible inks ever again having ruined 2 printers by using supposedly 'fully tested' compatible inks in them.

I generally find that Amazon has the cheapest prices for my Epson R2880 OEM carts. These often come from 7Dayshop or Indigo Starfish.

Edit.. Ooh that's clever I see the site automatically added a link to Amazon (obviously don't like the other 2 though!)

I bought a contraflow system for my Epson printer, i buy the six 100mil bottles of coulour, and just keep topping the unit up, it save's me a fortune.

I have found that the cheapest reliable supplier for genuine Epson cartridges is Premier Inks and Photographic

Just checked prices for Epson OEM T0963 cartridge for R2880:

Premier Ink = 8.99 + 1.76 P&P
7dayshop = 9.99 delivered
Amazon = 8.99 with free delivery

Certainly not an exhaustive test but bears out my previous experience.

BTW I have no affiliation with Amazon (or Father Christmas as they're known in DecemberWink) aside from being a customer.

I also usually browse Amazon to find the seller with the best price, although this can fluctuate over time.
