Now before canceling your membership, make sure to pick the correct reason of cancellation for why you’re leaving their program! Here are some reasons of cancellation:

My printer is no longer compatible (Please select this option if your printer is not compatible anymore and you wish to unsubscribe from HP Instant Ink)

I have reached my high-volume limit (Please select this option if you’ve either exceeded your monthly high volume ink allowance and would like to unsubscribe or if you just simply do not want any more high volume ink delivered)

You can only pick one of those options so make sure that’s the reason why you’re leaving their program. If it’s because “your printer is no longer compatible” as the reason, please let us know in the comments below if it was a success or if they tried to make you pay a certain fee.

Step 3: Select one of the reasons why you are unsubscribing from HP Instant Ink. Your reason will be used to allocate your refund if applicable. If you select “I do not want to continue with HP Instant Ink”, please make sure that is really what you’re choosing or else it won’t process correctly.

Step 4: Click the “Submit” button on your screen. You’ll see a message saying that we’re processing your request.

Step 6: Click on the “Cancel Membership” button on their screen to complete the process.

Step 7: Read through their Terms and Conditions and then check off that you’ve read it before you click “I agree”. Scroll down then click on the purple box that says “Submit”. Congrats! You now canceled HP Instant Ink!

After this your page will redirect you to a probably a page saying something like, This is not a final confirmation. We will notify you via email when we have completed processing your request. Please make arrangements for any printing needs during this time.” which means they haven’t yet finalized your cancellation but if you don’t need any HP Instant Ink service until your next billing cycle, you can ignore this email since it doesn’t really affect you.

If they continue to send you emails, don’t worry about it! It’s just them finalizing everything for your cancellation of HP Instant Ink.

FYI: You will be notified by HP 10 days prior of your renewal/current billing cycle before any changes are made. In order to avoid being charged, please cancel at least 10 business days before your billing is set to end. Cancellation is effective the day following the last day of your current membership month and plan term. Your membership with Instant Ink ends at 11:59 PST on that same date! We recommend canceling as close as possible to the start of your next billing cycle so you don’t receive a new cartridge sooner than you want to.

**If your cartridge is already full when you cancel, HP will send it back to you unless you pay for the ink and shipping fees yourself***
