About Printing Coupons

How do I print a coupon?

There are two ways to print coupons on RedPlum.

  1. In our Grocery Section you'll notice the scissors image on each printable coupon. To "clip" that coupon simply click the checkbox next to the scissors. When you've "clipped" all the printable coupons you want from that page scroll to the bottom and click on the "Print all Clipped Offers" button.
  2. Outside the Grocery Section, the printable coupons on RedPlum have a "more info" link. Click it and a box will open with buttons that let you print, save or send the coupon. (If you don't see a "print" button, that deal is an online offer; you'll instead find a link to the site where the deal is located, as well as a coupon code if needed).

Why am I being asked to install a Coupon Printer?

If this is your first time printing coupons from RedPlum you will be prompted to download our Coupon Printer application. This is a small application that will reside on your hard drive and enable you to print offers directly from our site.

About Offer or Coupon Redemption

Do I need to print an offer or coupon to get the advertised deal?

We advise that you print all offers you wish to redeem. All offers are subject to terms and conditions, please see vendor site for details.
