I read this over and over again “Everytime I try to print a coupon, it wants me to download the software, so I just don’t” or “Why do they need me to have their software?” The reason is due to the barcode. These applications help build, or format, the barcodes correctly when printed so that they can be scanned and accepted at the register.
“But, I can get other coupons without a download.” There coupons that are pdf files – which are unlimited prints. These are simply an uploaded image that you can click and print. While the majority are legitimate coupons, often times, they may look fake to cashiers and managers. This results in them not be accepted, or even the barcodes not being clean enough and not scanning.
You can rest assured that the printer applications are safe and will not violate privacy laws. I have used them for years and have never had any issues, I would also never direct anyone who visits this site to download any application that I did not feel good about. Your privacy and safety is of the utmost concern to me. So go ahead, download those applications and start to save!
