Have you heard the news?
If you have trouble printing coupons because of the coupon printer software, you may be happy to hear that Coupons.com is now offering a phone number authentication feature! This feature is more secure (no software, downloads or updates), takes less than 2 minutes to complete and will make coupons more accessible for everyone and from ALL devices (desktop, tablets and mobile phones)!
Over the coming months, Coupons.com will be phasing out their coupon printer software, which means that eventually ALL users who want to print coupons will be required to use this new phone number authentication feature.
How does it work? On a device that does not currently have the Coupons.com print software installed, you’ll now be able to enter your phone number to have a verification code sent to you via text message. After selecting your coupons, click the “Print Now” button and enter the verification code that was sent to you. You’ll then be taken to your print settings to complete your print session! That’s it…SWEET!
A Few Tips…
Are you getting an error after entering your mobile phone number? Please note that your number must be a valid mobile number from any US based wireless provider that is able to send and receive text messages. Prepackaged prepaid mobile phones from third party wireless providers are not supported – such as Tracfone, Net10, Consumer Cellular, or any Government issued prepaid phones.
NOTE: If you meet all the above requirements and still are not receiving the verification code, it’s possible that you may have entered an incorrect number, had a typo, or have a new mobile number using the same mobile phone. You will need to clear your cache and cookies in the browser to see the field where you can submit your phone number again. You can follow the steps in this article.
As another option, you can still install the Coupon Printer to your desktop or laptop if you don’t wish to provide your mobile phone number.
