Today’s Question:

Help! I can’t print Coupons from Coupons.com (Or RedPlum.com or Smartsource.com)

This is a Common Problem and one that I myself even deal with on occasion. The first thing you need to do when you are trying to print Coupons from Coupons.com, Redplum.com or Smartsource.com is to make sure you download and install the coupon printer. These are completely safe, I have used all 3 of these sites for over 2 years now and have never had a problem with using this printer software.

The Printer Software Download will show up when you try to print a coupon and this is not installed on your computer.

Here are a few common problems with printing coupons:

  • The Default Printer isn’t Ready – Make sure you set up a Default Printer. If you have a PDF File Writer or another device set up as the default printer then your coupons won’t print. If you have a Multi-Function Device like a Printer/Scanner/Fax Machine make sure the Printer is the default not the Fax Machine.
  • Change Oporating Systems – This is the solution that almost always works for me. If I have problems printing coupons I can typically switch from Firefox to Internet Explorer or from Internet Explorer to Firefox. Typically the problem is that the Software for Coupons.com hasn’t been updated to work with new (Or Old) Versions of the browser so changing can be an instant fix.
  • Check your Printer – Your Printer may have items that failed to print and those could be causing a hold up on your current coupons.

Also, remember that Coupons can reach their limits very fast and some sites like RedPlum.com or Target.com are not as fast about removing these coupons, so you may try to print a coupon that has already reached it’s limit and have problems.
