So, everyone uses different browsers, from IE to FireFox to Safari.

Sometimes people paste Coupons.com/Bricks links that they recieved in FireFox, which do not work in Internet Explorer or vice versa. You get the "Please wait..." or "Please Install The Coupon Printer" even if you already did.

This trick will allow you to simply change 2 characters in the URL to make a FireFox link work in Internet Explorer and vice versa

Here's how easy it is, the following is a FireFox link:
hxxp://bricks.coupons.com/Start.asp?tqnm=ri3peuo59687503&bt=wg&o=53740&ci=1&c=GM&p=TyQrvJAY

note the "wg" in the URL. This link gives the repeating Please Install The Coupon Printer in Internet Explorer.

To make that 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 error):
hxxp://bricks.coupons.com/Start.asp?tqnm=ri3peuo59687503&bt=wi&o=53740&ci=1&c=GM&p=TyQrvJAY
or
hxxp://bricks.coupons.com/Start.asp?tqnm=ri3peuo59687503&bt=vi&o=53740&ci=1&c=GM&p=TyQrvJAY

UPDATE: 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!

PS. I changed http to hxxp so you guys can see the full URL without the forum code making it a clickable link.

I was hoping a Mod/Admin could sticky this thread. It seems to have been very useful via all the Reps and PMs I've gotten about it.

Thanks.

Just saw a referral to this thread from another. Evidently the Mods didn't sticky it. In case anyone would like to sticky this, and doesn't know how, here you go - Go up to thread tools towards the upper right of the OP. Click on that, and a drop-down menu will appear. Click on stick the thread to the top. That's it. Next time you open the coupons thread, it will be shown there with the other stickys. HTH

Just an fyi for anyone having the half-printing coupon problem. This just happened today to me on a new PC. After Windows did an automatic update (grrr) suddenly all my printable coupons were only printing half. (I mean half a coupon would print and then the printer would eject the paper.) I tested printing a Word document, and it only printed the first line of text before ejecting.

I figured the Windows update is what messed me up, so I removed my printer and then added it back in again. Wa-la. Printing normal again. Damned windows updates! Smilie Figured they must have messed up my printer driver? Who knows.

I never had a problem until my hard drive crashed and a new one was installed. Now, no bricks coupons no matter what I try.

I have reinstalled the coupon printer twice and still end up with the same message. It doesn't recognize my printer or printer settings. It gives directions of how to change printer settings but it is for a PC. I've gone into my settings and can't find a way to change it like the directions suggest. I have Safari and an HP printer. I don't have any problems printing any other coupons except "bricks." If anyone could help me out, I'd love to be saving even more. Thanks so much!

If you have problems printing bricks coupons, you can click the help hyperlink at the bottom right corner and they'll mail you the coupon. Works for me when the link thinks I've printed it and I've only managed to get to the error page.

So how do you reset to print more copies if you've encountered errors and maxed out the 2 coupon limit?

I purchased a new computer (IE7) in August and have finally been able to print Bricks and coupons.com coupons....I haven't been able to on the previous Vista version for 3 years. Yesterday morning I printed from coupons.com, yesterday afternoon I went to sign into coupons.com (club) and it came up http error / page not found. Same thing today...I can pull up coupons.com from the laptop and kindle fire but not on the desktop. What do you think happened in a few hours? Today I restored to an earlier time but I still can't get into that site. I can print bricks coupons, I just can't pull up the coupons.com site. TIA
