Over the past few months, I’ve noticed a familiar trend: a trickle of emails each day arrive with the basic message of “help, I can’t get X coupon to print” and then I respond with an e-mail that links to the FAQ of the coupon printing site. Low and behold, a few hours later I find a batch of “thanks, I figured it out!” messages in my inbox.
The thing is, I doubt this trend will stop any time soon since most coupon printing companies which require you to download their software in order to print the coupons have FAQs buried in their website. Talk about not being very user friendly. But thankfully, you’ve got Goob on your side! Below, you’ll find a direct link to each of the main coupon providers FAQs. If none of them provide the answer your problem, then please feel free to leave a comment here. I might not be able to find an answer for everybody’s problem, but darn if I won’t try.
Coupons.com Printing Help – It’s worth noting that if you still have trouble printing coupons from Coupons.com, even after you go through their FAQ, then they will sometimes mail the coupons to you. Take this $1 Sudafed coupon. Look in the lower, right hand corner and you’ll see a tiny link that says “help.” Click that and you’ll be taken to a “mail my coupon” page.
SmartSource Printing Help – By far the hardest to find, yet most thorough, help guide for an online coupon printing site.
Redplum Printing Help – I haven’t received too many complaints for RedPlum, but I thought they were worth adding to the list since you do have to install a small program to print their coupons as well.
Valpak Printing Help – And finally, Valpak. Their FAQ is a bit harder to link to, so go to their site and look for the “Help” text in the lower, right hand corner of the site. They don’t actually require you to install any printing software, but I still get a few emails each week asking about their site.
I understand that not everybody is going to be get printable coupons to work. Law of averages simply tells us that with all the different computers, operating systems, errors, and who knows what else out there, some people will just give up on printing these. But that percentage of Hiffers should be as small as possible since online coupons are a huge source of savings of me and countless others. So what kind of problems are y’all having?
