I’ve had a number of people email and comment lately about their troubles with Internet printable coupons. Generally Bricks printable coupons are the most common culprit, and the issue can be very difficult to troubleshoot, not to mention frustrating.
Answers are hard to come by, so let me offer some suggestions that I’ve found.
- Disable your firewall. If you’re running a personal firewall, the .exe file may not install properly. You’ll want to follow the instructions to disable your firewall to install the coupon printer. Make sure to turn it back on when you’re installation is complete!
- Verify that you have administrator rights. You will not be able to install the coupon printer if you do not have administrator rights on your computer.
- Turn off your pop-up blocker. If you use a pop-up blocker, you need to turn it off to print coupons.
If these tricks all fail, oftentimes you can actually request for manufacturers to mail the coupons to you.
And as a final resort (actually a first resort if you don’t want to bother with all the rest), the easiest way I’ve found to resolve the problem is as simple as installing Firefox and using it as your browser when printing Bricks coupons. I’m no expert, so I won’t even pretend to know why, but for whatever reason, it seems to work even when Internet Explorer doesn’t!
