Yes, it’s built to work flawlessly on Windows and Mac computers, running a wide variety of operating systems and browsers. If you see a dialog box on your screen that states it may be “dangerous” to accept the Savings Printer Activator download, this simply means the plug-in was not developed by the original browser software developer (such as Microsoft). 
If you’re having issues downloading or installing the Savings Printer Activator, it may be for one of the following reasons:
  • You don’t have a supported operating system or browser. The Savings Printer Activator supports the following operating systems and browsers:
    • Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 when used with the following browsers: Internet Explorer 7.x and above (64bit and 32bit); Firefox 12.x and above; Chrome 13.x and above; and Safari 4.x and above.
    • Mac OS X 10.5 (Intel based processors only) and above when used with the following browsers: Safari 4.x and above, Firefox 12.x and above and Chrome 13.x and above.
  • Coupon printing is not supported under AOL, IOS, Android, Linux, Unix or Web TV platforms, mobile devices or tablets.
  • If you’re using a supported browser and operating system, other computer settings may prevent you from downloading or using the Savings Printer Activator.
  • Your computer may be protected by a firewall. Please check your network and internet settings to learn how to allow for plug-in installations and provide permission for the Savings Printer Activator to communicate over the internet.
  • You may have a pop-up blocker that prevents you from seeing the installation window for the Savings Printer Activator. Please check your internet browser settings for instructions on temporarily overriding the pop-up blocker.
  • The Savings Printer Activator is updated from time to time to support newer versions of popular browsers, so please check back for additions to this list. If you have a compatible operating system, you can download a supported browser by clicking one of the following links:
Computers found in offices, libraries and other public settings may prevent all plug-in installations for security reasons. Check with the network administrator to see if the settings can be changed to allow for installation of the Savings Printer Activator.
Please verify the following:
  • The plug-in was installed properly.
  • Your operating system and browser are supported.
  • You have not exceeded the coupon print limit.
If everything checks out, but you are still unable to print coupons, double-check the following:
  • Your printer turned on.
  • Your printer has sufficient paper supply.
  • Your computer and your printer are properly connected.
  • Your current default printer is the printer where you expected your coupon to print out. This is important if you have multiple printers connected to your computer or your computer is part of a network.
  • Your printer is not displaying any status lights, indicators, or messages that would indicate a problem.
  • You are using the correct printer device setting. You may not print to fax machines or file-based print commands (such as Adobe Acrobat) or other programs that create PDFs or image files. If you have a multifunction printer (fax, copy and print), please make sure that the printer is set as the default function on your computer.
The value may change weekly and sometimes daily based on the number of offers available at that time. New coupons become available often, so be sure to check back before each shopping trip.
The dollar amounts may differ based on how many coupons you have selected to print. The more you add, the closer your savings will be to the total available savings.
Given that coupons are valuable, some offers limit how many times a coupon may be printed by the same guest/household, or the number of offers available in a promotion campaign. If you're unable to print a coupon, it's likely you've encountered such limit(s).
Your printed coupons will include an expiration date and are good through the end of the day specified.
Most of our coupons can only be used with purchases made in Target Stores. Coupons that are redeemable on will include an 8-digit Promo code to be entered at Checkout.
If a Target store didn't accept your valid, printed coupon, please call us at (800) 440-0680.
