Office Depot sent me an email this morning. It included a coupon for 10 dollars off of a $50 ink cartridge purchase. Wow! I can save money!! I need to replenish my supply of ink – both Black & Color. Let me print out the coupon!!!
Arrgh!!! No ink to print out the coupon!
What to do?? What are my options?
I could go to Office Depot and plead with them to accept my word about the coupon.
How about printing the coupon to a file on a flash drive and taking it to the store?
There is a library near my home, I could take the file there & print it out, or just use their workstation to access my email and then print it out!
Store the coupon on my google drive – then at Office Depot, access the coupon on my Droid RAZR smartphone for the sales person to view.
Another option I have is a portable printer in my Road Warrior kit. Unfortunately, the ink cartridge has dried out from many days in the sun baked vehicle.
The coupon was for HP Cartridges only so, I didn’t have to use the above printer options. Next is a real life example of the predicament and use of the above options.
My brother was visiting in Raleigh, NC at a motel. He needed to print out his train boarding pass from his flash drive. The lobby printer would not recognize the flash drive for some weird reason. I gave him the above options and we decided on using the printing capabilities of a nearby library.
No Problem… A few minutes and a few coins and he had his boarding pass.
Retain this list for your next printer emergency.
