Tips for Printing Coupons From Nicorette.com
Registration at Nicorette.com is required. During registration, if you check that you have already begun to quit smoking, you will then be asked what your NRT preference is—a nicotine patch, nicotine gum or nicotine lozenges. This will usually result in a coupon for the product you selected. When you select that you have not yet quit smoking, the coupon often defaults to one for the Nicoderm CQ patch. (Note: A valid email is required for registration.)
The coupons available on Nicorette.com are managed through Coupons.com. You will need to download a small software printing program if you have never printed coupons from Coupons.com. It is easy to do and it can be removed from your computer after you print the coupon.
With Coupons.com coupons, you can usually print the coupon twice by reloading the page after the first coupon prints. The coupon expiration is based on when you print it and is generally four to six weeks from that date.
