I am re-posting this as I have recieved many questions lately about this issue!
Have you had trouble printing coupons? Have you ever gone in to print your coupons and you get the page that says “waiting to print” and nothing happens? Or what about when it asks you to download the “coupon printer” program…and you HAVE downloaded it many times and still nothing happens… yeah, its annoying!
Why is it doing this? When the company adds the PRINTABLE COUPON into a website…it is using a certain browser. You need to print your coupon from the same Browser in which it was applied to the website or you run into these problems.
What is a Browser? Browsers are the little icons you click on to get into the internet. Most people use either an Internet Explorer Browser or the Firefox brower. So when you sign into the internet you will most of the time click on these two logos :
Then when whenever I run into the problem of it asking me to download over and over again I will just copy the URL of the printable coupon…and then open the other browser. I paste the URL in and then click print. his works like a charm!
Now, there is another way to fix this, where you wouldnt have to download a new browser. However its a little more complicated : you can just change the code in the URL address. Its a quick 2 letter fix most of the time. Internet explorers 2 letters are “vi” or “wi”. Firefox uses “wg”. Just switch out these two letters for the other browsers two letters. For example this is the code to print out with a firefox browser.
This is what the code looks like with internet explorer.
Just switch out those 2 letters until it works in the paticular brower you are using.
If you are a MAC user, on Safari, you can replace the 2 letters with “xs” as well.
Is it Safe to Download the “Coupon Printer” program? I have downloaded this from coupons.com, smartsource.com and redplum.com without any problems at all! You have to download this in order to print coupons because what this program essentially does is track how many coupons you print (which normally you can only print 2). Feel safe downloading this program.
This should fix your Internet Printable Coupon Issues! Happy Printing!
