Top 5 Reasons to Buy Advantage Brand Remanufactured Toner Cartridges:

5) Dramatic decrease in oil consumption and toxic emissions. FACT: You have to burn 3 quarts of oil to produce the average toner cartridge.[1] Last year alone, our customers saved 10,985 gallons of oil from being emitted into the atmosphere by purchasing remanufactured toner cartridges.

4) Waste reduction. FACT: Last year, our customers collectively saved nearly 15,000 cartridges from ending up in landfills by choosing remanufactured products—that’s 45,000 lbs or the equivalent of 23 automobiles! Stacked on top of each other, these cartridges would reach the top of the empire state building nearly 4 times over!

3) Not all remanufactured cartridges are created equal. Some remanufactures simply “drill and fill” their cartridges and/ or use the same “empty” over and over. At Advantage, we only utilize “virgin” empties (cartridges that have only been through their original cycle) and replace all moveable parts to ensure superior performance. FACT: Advantage brand toner cartridges match or exceed OEM cartridges in terms of performance and warranty—we guarantee our cartridges 100%.

2) Remanufactured cartridges DO NOT void manufacturer’s warranties. FACT: Antitrust legislation prohibits copier and printer manufacturers from voiding their warranties when remanufactured cartridges are used in their machines. Therefore, it is illegal to void a printer warranty because of remanufactured cartridge usage.[2]

1) Going GREEN means saving $$$$$! FACT: Buying Advantage remanufactured cartridges instead of OEM saves 30-60% on toner costs! Last year our customers purchased nearly 15000 remanufactured toner cartridges. If they would have purchased OEM, they would have spent $1,501,864 collectively. Instead they collectively saved between $450,559 and $901,118—that’s the Advantage!
