Do I need to Download Printer Software?
If the site you are trying to print from requires it, then the answer is yes. In most cases, it's a safe browser add-on that is necessary to enable your computer to build and print the coupons. The software is required to print the coupons with the security information that conform to manufacturer and retailer requirements for redemption.

Why do my coupons print without a barcode?
Coupons need a barcode so that they can be scanned at the store. If your coupon prints without a barcode, this is usually a sign that there is an issue with Java on your computer. Try to update Java on your computer to see if that helps.
Why does the site say Print Limit Reached when I have not printed the coupon yet?
This message will appear when you have printed the coupon the number of times allowed. However, it will also appear when the total amount printed (this amount is usually set by the manufacturer) has been reached. For example, a manufacturer may allow 50,000 to be printed. Once it reaches 50,000, the coupon will no longer be available to print.
How many coupons can I print?
Most manufacturers or coupon sites allow you to print 2 coupons per computer. To print 2, you can go back to the original page and print again or just simply hit your back browser. In some cases, you may need to refresh the page to view the coupon again.
Can I make a copy of the coupon?
Absolutely not! Making copies of coupons, printable or from the newspaper, is against the law.
