Learn more about Bricks Coupons

by LisaB on March 16, 2011


If you’ve been couponing for a while you might know about Bricks Coupons. (These are my favorite type to print at home because they’re so easy! Bricks Coupons are sponsored by Coupons.com)

Take a look at a sample Bricks link (you’ll know it’s a Bricks link because of the address, along with a screen similar to the one shown at the left):


Depending on the browser you’re using (Internet Explorer, Firefox or Safari), the code (highlighted in red) will need to be slightly different in order for you to be able to print your coupon correctly.

Internet Explorer = wi (vi will also work)

Firefox = wg or vg

Safari (on a PC) = vi

Safari (on a MAC) = xs

Often, if the link isn’t intended for your current search engine, you’ll be asked to install the coupon printer – repeatedly, with no success. If you’re using Firefox to print your Bricks coupon and it’s not working, check the http address. Change the “wi” or “vi” to a “wg” instead (depending on your browser) and you’ll find that your problem is solved! We’ve been able to successfully “fix” the links for many printable coupons with these instructions!

If your coupon is STILL not printing after altering the address, find HELP on the bottom of the original screen. It will take you to a Troubleshooting Guide offering additional HELP suggestions.

If you find that you still cannot print the coupon, fill out the online form to request the coupon in the mail. Note that it will take a few weeks to arrive.

Be aware that Internet printable coupons (often) have limits. If a particular coupon has reached its 100,000 print limit you will receive a message indicating the coupon cannot be printed.

Obsessive Coupon Gal Tip: Most Internet printable coupons allow you to print two coupons per IP address. You could print two from your laptop and two from your home personal computer. Be sure to HIT THE BACK BUTTON to print your second coupon.

* Do not make a copy of your Internet printable coupons. These coupons are coded with special security codes and making copies is considered fraudulent. In addition, stores who mistakenly accept fraudulent coupons will not be be reimbursed by the manufacturer.

I use a Mac with Safari and have tried everything suggested to print Bricks Coupons with no success. Could you have someone contact me and help me with my problem? I used to be able to use Bricks.

Would some one PLEASE tell me what is going on with BRICKS printing? I went from being able to print them with no problems, to constantly being told to reinstall the coupon printer. Running MAC OS 10.6.8, and have installed the upgrade. Printing on a Stylus Pro R200. The “xs” in the html code is showing up, so there’s nothing to change. HELP!

Micki-Same problem as you! Ever since I upgraded to 10.6.8, I can’t print from Bricks. I can print from all other coupon sites though. I’ve tried everything I can think of-upgraded printer driver, tried different browser, checked all other software updates with no luck. Contacted Bricks with all my info. They replied back that all my equipment was within their perimeters. Really? Duh, Like I can’t read!!! Ughhh!! I hate stupid people!!!!

I signed up for online coupons, but I found out they don’t do me much good since don’t have a printer. Are there companies that will send me coupons in the mail? I’m in a new city looking for a job, and this computer does not come equipped with a printer, so I’d like to know about my options. Thank you!

No, your best bet is to try ecoupons – such as Ibotta or Checkout 51 that you can load directly to your phone or buy the Sunday paper for coupons.
