Have you heard the news?

If you have trouble printing coupons because of the coupon printer software, you may be happy to hear that 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)!

Coupons.comOver the coming months, 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 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.

What are your thoughts on this new change?!

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
