Overview

The most common release is 5.0.0.0, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version.

Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The primary executable is named couponprinter.exe. Many users end up uninstalling this after less than a month of it being installed. The setup package generally installs about 8 files and is usually about 6.39 MB (6,701,497 bytes).

Coupons, Inc. is the leading provider of secure printable coupons for manufacturers and other coupon issuers. The Coupon Printer that you have to install a) ensures that the barcodes you print are rendered at the proper resolution so they scan properly at checkout and b) allows us to limit the number of each coupon that you can print on a given computer. This limitation is critical to our clients who need to have some control over the number of coupons they distribute, and therefore their total financial liability. Keep in mind that manufacturer coupons involve retailers giving you the discount and manufacturers reimbursing them.
