Printing Coupons with Mac

If you, like many couponers, have experienced trouble printing coupons using a Mac operating system then you are in luck. I’ve also encountered several problems printing coupons from a Mac computer and these are the tricks that have worked for me.

Try a Different Internet Browser

Some coupons are browser specific. That is, the coupon may not print with Internet Explorer or Google Chrome, but it might print just fine with Firefox or Safari. If you are using a Mac, then you’re best bet is to stick to Firefox and Safari. This is an easy problem solution since it is quick, easy, and free to download a different internet browser. If printing with a different internet browser doesn’t do the trick then…

Try Altering the URL to Suite Your Browser

Thanks to a fellow blogger, I learned how to solve my coupon printing dilemmas by simply altering a couple of letters of the web page URL. In summary of the original blog about this coupon printing technique, this is what you will want to do:

Take this link for example:

http://bricks.coupons.com/Start.asp?tqnm=qfhsaei61276871&bt=vi&o=57042&c=PU&p=smDpIRXJ

If you are using Internet Explorer, the coupon should print fine because when using Internet Explorer, you’ll want the red underlined letters to read either “vi” or “wi.” If you are using Firefox, you will want to change the red underlined letters in the URL to read either “vg” or “wg.” If you are using Safari on your Mac, you will want to change those letters to “xs.”

These tricks have always worked for me, but unfortunately there is no one answer for all Mac coupon printing problems. If you’ve found another solution for printing coupons using a Mac operating system that you think could help other couponers, please feel free to share in the comment section!

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
