iPhone + HP wireless printer = more coupons

Nicole commented on Facebook (and Lisa just commented on the blog) that if you have an iPhone and an HP wireless printer, you can download the free Coupons.com app and print another set of coupons directly from your phone.

So far, I’ve downloaded the app and spent half an hour trying to get it to work — it keeps telling me I don’t have an HP wireless printer on my network… but I do! So if you guys get it to work, tell me what I’m doing wrong. :)

    I have been printing with my iphone and HP printer for a few weeks now but it found my printer the first time without any problem so I don’t have any great tricks for you but just thought I would let you know I have had success with it. However you I have only been able to get one print of each Q as opposed to the two I can normally get when not on my Iphone

    You would need to check the IP settings on your wireless printer and make sure they are set correctly on your phone to match, if you have that option. I don’t have an iphone but I work with wireless printers and that would be the key.

    I just downloaded the app and it found our printer no problem. I went to check out with the coupon I selected and our printer came up on the screen. I selected it and then printed. Fun! I hope you can get yours to work, Rachel. I’d like another $1/2 Healthy Choice dinners but didn’t see that on there…

    Are you connected thru your local network and not using 3G? Every once in a while I forget and need to make that switch in settings.

      Lab66 — that was the first thing I tried, cause I wasn’t — made no difference — it’s just not seeing the printer. And I know the printer wireless is set up fine, because I print to it with my laptop over the network all the time. Hmm.

    Rachel, the connection between your laptop and printer is not the sane as the printer to your wifi.
    On the printer, through settings, choose network setup, you should see your network, choose that and enter your security code. Good luck!

    This is great news, I want to get an iphone but wasn’t sure I can print now I see that there is this capability! woo hoo now I can print at work!

    I have the app and I have a wireless printer.. But I don’t have any other wireless service at my house, so when I go to print my coupons… I have to switch to wifi and hurry and open the app and select the coupons I want to print before my 3G kicks off! I can only get to like one or two coupons before this happens. Do I have to have another wireless network or am I doing something wrong? Thanks!

      I honestly don’t even know how you are connecting to the printer if you don’t have wireless service in your house? If you have a wireless router that the printer uses then you should be able to use your phone with that wireless service as well?
