What is a "catalina" coupon?

A Catalina is a coupon that prints at the register at the very end of your transaction (after you pay).  It prints out of a machine (called a catalina machine) next to the register, after your receipt prints. 
Catalinas are usually triggered by an item that was purchased in that transaction.  They can be manufacturer coupons or store coupons good on items or a dollar amount good as cash on your next purchase.
Sometimes there are special catalina promotions.  For example, the promotion could be to buy 3 specified items and receive a $3 catalina good on your next purchase.  (Here is an example from a Winn-Dixie promotion)
Walgreen’s prints Register Rewards that are good as cash off your next purchase.
Other stores that participate in catalinas are Winn-Dixie, Food World, Albertson’s and most recently Target.
