Thread Details

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.

If this has been answered already (or isn't the best forum) I apologize; I did a search and this tech support thread is the closest I found.

I know a lot of people here use the bricks & copuons.com coupons, so presumably they're reliable. I was wondering though - do their (required) apps do anything uncouth? Do they monitor my usage habits, have any ads or spam associated with them, etc? Or is it just for them to create unique IDs and prevent me from printing multiple copies or pdfs?

Thanks in advance!

Well I installed vista on the problematic xp laptop, clean install, and guess what....still can't print bricks coupons! I set it up exactly like my vista desktop....exactly, same browser settings, same IE addons loaded, even same printer....and the laptop can't print them while my computer prints them fine. Really infuriating, not sure what else to try.

You guys with the zip code issue, have any of you photocopied Bricks coupons and used multiples of them?

Also, savings123, you PMed me and I tried to reply but it said your private message mailbox was full.

I have a question. I thought I read somewhere that you could use IE or FF and get 2 coupons from bricks and then go to Safari on the same computer and print 2 more. Now if this is true, how do you get the dang coupon printer to install on Safari? It downloads something but it never installs. I tried on an XP and a Vista computer with no luck.

It's 2 per computer, no matter what browser.

I have vista, I can't get coupons.com or any bricks to print. I originally was able to. I am wondering if once the "upgrade" was done on the computer if this messed something up. Ever since you have to put on your zip code that was when they stopped printing. Does anybody have any luck with the newest version of firefox, the 3.2? 2.0 and 3.0 firefox do not work for me. Originally I did not have firefox and they printed. I've exhausted all my options, unless you have another solution??? thanks......drool

I do it all the time. I double backclick as soon as the 1st print starts, make sure the coupon is at the top of the page and cancel as soon as the coupon part has printed. I'm so cheap that I even flip the sheet of paper and print the 2nd coupon on the bottom of the same sheet, canceling as soon as the second coupon has printed. Big Grin
AWESOME tip! Thanks so much! Thanks

Yep, I do this all the time, saves paper and ink. I have an Epson printer and there is a very predictable pause in the printing and if I listen for it and hit the stop button on the printer then, it with have printed just the coupon at the top of the page and doesn't print the advertising that usually prints below a bricks coupon.

Something weird is happening. When I print out my manu cous for some reason on two of the coupons the bar code does not show up completely but on the very last one it prints fine. It has done this for two seperate coupons.

PM me for the details. I found an old message with the registry key that needs to be edited. I don't want to make the information public as they may make their software smarter. Note that you likely need VMware Workstation 6.0 or later and a USB printer, as you need the USB printer connected to the VM. I don't think any MS virtualization products support USB devices.
Sent you PM couple of days ago and haven't heard. Could someone PM me with the registry hack? TIA.

I'm not too computer literate but I've been trying to get my computer to print coupons for a looong time and then found this thread. YAY!! But I still cna't get it to print. I've installed the printer lots of times but it never gets beyond this .http://bricks.coupons.com/Install...r=&pc=&tc=
According to the 1st pg of this thread, the word "start" appears where "install" appears. I tried changing install and the wg and others but nothing helps. Any ideas for me? Thanks!!!!

So if you make multiple copies then bricks and coupons.com shuts you off from printing by blocking your IP Address
