THE MORE YOU KNOW


As you can see by the example’s above, all of these superstore “great deals” are really not.
There actually giving you the machine at cost but making it up 1000 fold with toner cost.
Good example we tell our customers, General Motors will give you a brand new Cadillac.
But there going to charge you $30.00 per gallon to drive it. If you have a typical 15 gallon
gas tank it will cost you $450.00 to fill up. And even if you use compatible toner cartridges
your not saving to much more.
