I often get frustrated emails over coupon printing. While I am not the tech savvy person you all believe I am, I do have some helpful hints that will hopefully help you out – PLEASE understand, I might not be able to offer you every detail of explanation for a question you might present. I will do my best.
Note: Most coupons can be printed twice. Use your back button to get back to a printer to print. Sometimes this requires clicking your back button a few times.
Printing coupons DOES require you to install a Coupon Printer. There are a few types I have seen – one you see often is on Coupons.com or with Bricks, another on Smart Source, and another on Target‘s website. For Smart Source coupons you will need the latest version of Java which you can get HERE. For PDF coupons, you need the latest version of Adobe which you can get HERE.
Installing the Printer
When you select a coupon to print and click the print button, you will be asked to install a coupon printer (if you have not done this before.) If your computer keeps asking you to install the coupon printer after you already have, one solution might be to check your spy/virus program to make sure this program in allowed to be used. Also, try a different browser (switch to Internet Explorer -IE, Safari, or Firefox-FF.) If it keeps giving you trouble, move on. I have had this happen before and sometimes I just don’t see a solution.
You can recognize these coupons because the start out with the web address http://bricks. Bricks Coupons can be a little tricky as their address/code can be specific to the browser you are using (IE, FF, Safari – you can not print them in Chrome.)
So in the Bricks address, you are looking for key letters to know which browser to use. You can see the image below.
Internet Explorer (IE): wi or vi
Firefox (FF): wg or vg or xg
Safari: vi or xs
How do you know if you are in the wrong browser? Well the letters above should tell you, but the coupon will also say please wait or never print. Open a new browser and try again.
