I have received quite a few comments & emails with readers having issues printing their coupons. I personally have not had any issues printing, but I asked some of my blogging friends and looked around at other sites for help. Here are their suggestions:
Trouble installing the coupon activator?
Download the coupon printer. Be sure to “save” it to your desktop and not to a local directory. Do not directly “run” the installer after it is downloaded. Instead, once you have the file saved to your desktop- close each and every window you have open. You should not have any open applications at all. Now try double clicking on installer file on your desktop and going from there.

Trouble printing Bricks coupons?
This is from the site GiveMeNeither:
Sometimes I’ve had problems printing bricks coupons and it just says “please wait” or “please install the coupon printer” when it’s already installed. So frustrating!
I just read a great post on A Full Cup about how to remedy coupons not printing. The problem arises because someone copies a link in Firefox and then when you try to use Internet Explorer to open it the code doesn’t work and vice versa. It’s just a matter of switching a couple lettters in the url code.
Here’s the example given:
This is a Firefox link that gives “please install the coupon printer” message when tried in Internet Explorer.
Notice the “wg” in the URL.
To make this link work in IE simply change “wg” to “wi” or “vi”
Sometimes they both work. Other times you have to try both to find the one that works. The opposite is true if you want to change a IE link to work in Firefox. Change the 2 letters to “wg”
To print a Bricks coupon in Safari you have to change it to “xs”.
If you want to print a Safari link in IE or Firefox, switch the two letters to “vi” or “wi” for IE or “wg” for Firefox.

Firefox ~ hxxp://bricks.coupons.com/Start.asp?tqnm=ri3peuo59687503&bt=wg&o=53740&ci=1&c=GM&p=TyQrvJAY
Safari ~ hxxp://bricks.coupons.com/Start.asp?tqnm=ri3peuo59687503&bt=xs&o=53740&ci=1&c=GM&p=TyQrvJAY
Once you replace the letters, make sure to hit the return key before hitting print.
