Over the last several days many of you have asked how to print coupons from your mobile device.
Having an iPad, iPod, or Android can be a tremendous asset, when it comes to printing coupons. But – it takes a number of steps & requirements to be able to print from these devices.

You can see what printers are included by heading to this list. If you are printing from Coupons.com you will need to use an HP-Printer.
Have a Proper Network Connection. To print from any mobile device you will need to have a wireless network. Set up your device to Wi-Fi mode and wait for it to search for your home network.
