To use an online coupon in a physical store, first check the site to see if it supports home printing functions. Many coupon distribution sites such as Coupons.com require you to select the coupons you want to use by checking a box on the coupon and clicking the Print button that appears on each page. This launches a print manager program that you must download in order to access the coupons. The program ensures that you only print the appropriate number of coupons according to site and manufacturer rules. Other sites provide the coupons as images that you may freely print directly through the browser or image viewing software.

When using online coupons with an online retailer, visit your shopping cart and look for a box that allows you to apply a coupon code. Some sites use codes that consist of numbers and letters and are only valid through the site, whereas others honor print coupons using the numbers that appear in the bar code.
