Trouble Printing Printable Coupon?? Here's some tips!

Are you getting the message “please wait” and then nothing ever happens. Since everyone uses different browsers, from Internet Explorer to FireFox to Safari, people paste links that they got in FireFox, which do not work in Internet Explorer or vice versa.
Sometimes you get the message “Please Install The Coupon Printer” even when you already did install five times. Well here's thet trick that will allow you to simply change 2 characters in the URL to make a FireFox link work in Internet Explorer and vice versa, the following is a FireFox

link:hxxp:// “

wg” in the URL link gives the repeating Please Install The Coupon Printer in Internet Explorer. To make the link an Internet Explorer link we simply change “wg” to “wi” OR “vi” (in this case, both variations work, other coupons it may be wi or vi, trial and


If you want to print Bricks coupons on a MAC with Safari, replace the “wg”, “wi”, or “vi” to “xs”. You can also do the reverse, take a Safari link “xs” to IE “wi” or “vi” or to FireFox “wg”. You do the opposite if you want to print an Internet Explorer link in FireFox!

Or what I do is simply just copy and paste the link of the coupon and open up a new web browser (like FireFox to Internet Exlorer) and the paste the link and you should be good to go! Best of luck.

This was a great technique I learned from another site. But, I still have trouble with the smartsource coupons. I can never get those to print no matter what I do. I even tried wiping my computer and just installing the smartsource printer, still with no luck.
