Is it safe to print coupons using Java?
We know lots of consumers may have questions about the Java problems that were reported widely in the media over the weekend of January 12th. Rest assured, the issue in question did not relate in any way to the printing of coupons. Printing coupons is very safe. To make sure all of your online activities are as safe as printing coupons with us, we recommend you download the newest Java update and that you take care to only run Java Applets from sites/providers you know and trust--such as Save.com and RedPlum.
If safety is a concern, we recommend you uninstall your old Java and reinstall the new version. Here's an article with step-by-step instructions.

How do I print a coupon?
There are two ways to print coupons on Save.com.
Why do I need the Coupon Printer?
The coupon printer helps Save.com and the manufacturer manage the overall distribution and security of coupons and offers in circulation. Better security enables manufactures to continue to pass on great savings to you. Coupon printer applications are also used by other major coupon sites.
I am still unable to print coupons. What can I do?
Here’s a checklist to troubleshoot some of the most common issues.
Are you using a supported operating system and browser?
Save.com Secure Print works best using Windows XP, 7; Mac OSX 10.6.8; Internet Explorer 7-9, Firefox 5 and above, Chrome 15 and above, and Safari Mac 5.1.1. Upgrading your browser will improve your experience and help you browse the internet safely.
Are you hooked up to a printer? Is the power on, and supplied with paper and ink?
Make sure your default printer is set up properly before you try to print.
Is Java installed?
The first time you print Save.com coupons you may be prompted to download or update your version of Java and activate the plug-in which will accurately print your coupons so they can be readily scanned in local stores. Installing or updating your Java is quick, easy and free.
Did you accept the Java Applet and allow plugins and controls to run?
Make sure you click Accept on the Java applet when it pops up. Our applet is called “AppletPrint” and depending upon your browser may say that it is coming from Save.com, client.Save.com or Valassis Communications. If you are browsing using multiple windows, make sure the Applet pop-up window didn’t get “lost” in the background.
Some browsers and systems have Java turned off by default. To turn it back on, open the Tools or Preferences menu on your browser and use the Advanced option to make sure Java is in “Enabled” mode and your plugins are turned on.
Did you receive a virtual machine, virtual printer, or screen-capturing software message?
Printing is not allowed using virtual environments. Please exit any screen-capturing software you may have installed on your machine, including programs in Standby mode.
Have you tried all of the above, but you still get stuck on “Preparing to Print”?
You may have multiple versions of an older Java. Uninstalling the older versions will allow you to start fresh with the newest version. On a Windows computer:
The next time you try to print a Red Plum coupon, you will be prompted to install java. Alternately, you can install Java yourself at www.java.com.
Did printing suddenly stop working for you? Try the below steps:
I tried to install Java and it says I don’t have permission.
Do you have adequate permission to download programs on your computer or the computer you are using? Or are you using software that blocks the installation of applications? If you are trying to print coupons at work or from a computer at a library, Internet cafe or university, you may not have permission to download and install programs onto the computer you are using. This may be true even if you've downloaded and installed other files. Contact your network administrator for more information. If you have a home computer, you may find it easier to access our coupons there. You might also be running software that prevents installation on your computer. Please make sure to turn off any anti-virus software or any anti-spyware or adware software.
Are the security settings on your browser set too high? If you receive warnings or errors that an attempt to install an ActiveX control (Internet Explorer) or a plug-in was blocked, or are asked for permission to install a program, you may need to change your browser's security settings to allow installation of these types of controls. Also, make sure to click the appropriate buttons in any dialog boxes that appear to allow the installation. Modern browsers make you jump through a few hoops to install plug-ins, but it's worth it!
Why is there a limit for how many times some coupons can be printed from Save.com?

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