Bad part is - you lose the ink cartridge rewards unless you purchase ink from them...

hmm so based on the wording it means $30 for 6 months of recycling... not bad, but it looks like you have to buy ink from the beginning instead of the end lol. (for one account, for multiple accounts ... sigh..)

So if I'm reading this correctly, one could buy $30 of ink on 1/15 and 7/15, and be good to recycle every month of the year. This isn't really that big of a deal.
