If you have a specific coupon that you are looking for, you can usually just do a web search for "such and such printable coupon". If you don't see one within the first few results, there probably isn't one and you shouldn't spend a lot of time looking.

How can I print more than one coupon?

Why won't the coupon print?
The first time you print coupons you will need to install the coupon printer. You will most likely need to restart your computer after that. Sometimes there have been updates made to the coupon printer. In that case you will need to reinstall the coupon printer. Sometimes the coupon printer will work in one web browser, but not another. I use both Internet Explorer and Firefox for my web browsing. If the coupon will not print in one browser, I will open it up in the other browser, and most of the time it will work.

Is there anything I can do if the coupon absolutely will not print?
Many of the coupons have a help button in the lower right hand of the page. Once you click on that, you will find an option to have the coupon mailed to you.


  1. Why does it sometimes say that "you have already reached the max # of times you are allowed to print" when you have never printed it before?

  2. diane,
    Manufacturers usually have a certain number of coupons available to print for each campaign. Once that number has been reached, no one else will be able to print any coupons. When that is the case, the message often reads that you have printed the max # of times allowed.

  3. I have always wondered how often SmartSource and are 'updating' or 'rotating' their coupons. Is it monthly, weekly?

  4. Michelle,
    Generally they add new ones every month. Sometimes a coupon is discontinued before the month is out and they may add new ones here and there during the middle of the month, but they generally make a larger rotation every month.
