Getting Started - Printing Coupons

Printing coupons is the easiest way to get started couponing.  Internet printed coupons, or IP coupons, are manufacturer coupons and work the same way as the ones you find from the inserts in your Sunday paper.

You first need to download a simple coupon printer to your computer.  The website you are printing from will give you specific instructions on how to do this.  Next, select & print the coupons you wish to use.  They can be printed in black & white or color.  Each coupon has a unique pin code and can only be used once.  Most IP coupons can be printed twice per computer.  If you have two computers then you can print two copies per computer = 4 coupons and so on.

Photocopying coupons is consider fraud and is illegal.  As tempting as it may be with a good coupon, DO NOT copy coupons!

IP coupons are accepted at most grocery, drug and discount stores.  Each store's coupon policy is different and you will on occasion find a store that will not accept an IP coupon.  Make sure to check your stores coupon policy if you have any questions.
