Have you ever tried to print an online coupon only to be told that you need to download the coupon printer, but you know you have already done that? Frustrating, isn’t it? Hopefully, those days are gone once you learn these tricks.
Bricks coupons. Most problems occur with “bricks” coupons, which are online coupons that start with http://bricks.coupons.com. Following that start is a long string of characters that look like gibberish to me. Here’s an example url for a bricks coupon: http://bricks.coupons.com/Start.asp?tqnm=qdtlcux99738770&bt=$&o=55781&c=KX&p=ymlIfoq5. These instructions are targeted solely to bricks coupons.
Your internet browser. That long string of gibberish-looking characters needs to be compatible with the browser you use to surf the internet. Let me walk you through a couple of the major browsers:
Internet Explorer. To print this coupon using Internet Explorer, IE, you will need to replace the “$” with either a “wi” or “vi”. Do this and you will be able to print in IE.
Firefox. To print this coupon using this link in the Mozilla Firefox browser you will need to replace the dollar signs in the link above. Simply change the “$” in the link above to “wg” and you will be able to print this coupon in Mozilla.
Safari. To print the same coupon, but using the Safari browser, you will need to change the “$” above to “xs”
Troubleshooting the link. You will often come across bricks coupons with one of the codes already in them such as “vi”, “wi” and “wg”. The code tells you which browser it is compatible with. If you are using a different browser, then all you need to do is change those two letters.
Your turn: Did it work? Can you resolve some of the printing problems now? What problems are you still having?
