You are limited to print 2 coupons per computer/device but there are times when you’re allowed to print just 1. Printers are now mostly wireless and you can print from your phone using an app.
Remember to NEVER photocopy your coupons!
What I mean by that is to not make copies of your printed coupons to have more to use. This is because each coupon has a unique code (set of numbers). And using duplicate printed coupons is fraudulent. Think of it like making copies of money. Don’t do it.
Just a quick side note: There were many printable coupon websites and companies offered their own printable coupons when I started couponing in 2009. Now, there’s just a handful of them because of the widespread couponing fraud. Even the value of coupons decreased since. So please let’s work together to keep couponing great for everyone!
I use an HP monochrome laser jet printer to print my coupons and it has saved me money on ink. It’s been years and I haven’t changed the toner even once! I’ve never had any problems with printing my coupons in black and color. It might be different in your case; ask the manager at your store to be sure.
This HP LaserJet Pro M15w Wireless Laser Printer is the world’s smallest laser printer regularly priced at $99 which is not bad considering laser printers used to be expensive and bulky. Also, I see this go on sale all the time – keep your eyes peeled if you want to save money.
If you want a multi-functional wireless printer, this Brother monochrome laser printer is highly rated. This is regularly $160 but I also see it often on sale for $99. I like that there’s an automatic 2-sided print mode.
Where to Get Free Coupons
Though I try to keep this post updated, you might encounter links that aren’t working.
Here’s what you can do:
Simply search the website for “offers” or “coupons” or check out the company’s Facebook pages for exclusive offers
Some of these websites use the same coupon database so you’ll see some that are identical. However, they do feature their own printable coupons usually at the top of the page.
Several reminders for you:
- some require you to sign up to be able to print the coupons
- some require you to sign up for the newsletter and receive printable coupons via email
- some allow you to print coupons from their website AND send you exclusive offers via email
Pro Tip: Have a dedicated email for printable coupons, especially when you’re signing up for the newsletters. This way it’ll be easy for you to see the printable coupons you want rather having them buried in your already full inbox.
