Most of us have wireless devices which we use to go online, stay up to date with friends and family and even, find coupon! If you are using one of these devices, you can print coupons directly to your wireless printer. However, there are a few things you will want to make sure that you keep in mind.
1. Your printer must be compatible. If you are using an Apple Device, your wireless printer must include AirPrint. There are several brands which offer this service, just make sure that it is the case before you make your purchase. You might need to set up your wireless printer with it’s own email address so that you can send the item to the printer via email, where it will print.
Note that if you are printing from Coupons.com, the only compatible printers at this time are Hewlett Packard products (some others have been able to work, but this it the oly one they advise works at this time). If you have any other brand, you will need to email the coupon to yourself (or your printer) to have them print from there.
2. You will need to install the coupon software. This seems to be a concern for many people as they don’t like to install software. Rest assured that this is safe, but is required in order for the barcode and required encoded data to print on your coupon.
3. Your device must allow you to print. The type of device you have determines if you can print the coupons or not. If you are using an Apple Device, you just need the coupons.com app from the iTunes store and you just follow those steps and it will print (taking into account Steps 1 and 2).
If you are using a Android based product, you should be able to print, but you will have to do a little more in order to get it to work. You will first need to download the Grocery IQ app from Google Play. You will then need to download either the PrinterShare App for $12.95 or PrinterShare for free. Keep in mind that free apps often have limitations, so sometimes it is worth an investment in order to gain access to your coupons.
While these steps should work, there are instances where they will not. If that happens, you will need to find a desktop or laptop and print your coupons from there instead.
