There are a lot of abbreviations used when it comes to couponing and deals. Let me help you decode it all!
A catalina coupon is coupon that prints at the register after your purchase. They are called “catalinas” after the company that makes the machines that print them.
A catalina can be a manufacturer coupon. These are often triggered to print based on something you purchased. At Winn-Dixie, if I purchase Gerber products, I’ll usually get Gerber coupons printed. Sometimes you’ll get a coupon for a rival brand, for example, if you purchase Maxwell House coffee you might get a coupon for Folgers. I’ve gotten catalinas coupons for FREE products!
Walgreens Register Rewards are a type catalina coupon that are store coupons.
Sometimes stores will have a special promotion where you get a coupon off your next order when you buy a certain product or amount of products. I see these most often at Winn-Dixie. A recent one that comes to mind was on Green Giant boxed frozen vegetables. The promotion was buy 3 boxes and save $1.00 on your next order (OYNO), buy 4 boxes, get $2 or buy 5 boxes, get $3. When you buy the required item(s) a coupon prints that says “Save $1.00 on your next shopping order.” When you shop again, include your catalina in your coupons you use and you save! Simple as that!
You can use coupons on the products you are buying for the deal. For example, if a $1 OYNO coupon is supposed to print when you buy a $3 product and you have a $1 coupon on it – use it. You’ll pay $2 for the product and get $1 back to spend later!
