Coupons 101: Catalina Coupons
Catalina is a word that is used and included in blog posts regarding deals that are going on but not everyone is clear as to what exactly this is. A Catalina is basically a coupon that prints out at check-out from that little machine beside or attached to the cash register. These are coupons that can be used on your next shopping trip and are usually manufacturer’s coupons. Occasionally, you may get a Catalina that is a store coupon as well but that is a bit more unusual. Expiration dates can range from ten days out to several months. This is one way to get coupons for produce and meat since you will sometimes get a $ off coupon for when you spend a certain amount on these types of products.
These are different than Register Rewards and Extra Care Bucks and may be a small amount off of a product, up to a completely free product. Catalinas can be triggered by what you purchased or items that are being promoted by the store or brand. These may also come in the form of a discount on your next purchase, for example $10 off when you spend $30 on your next trip. Some Catalina deals are advertised and some are surprises. Often if we know about a Catalina deal, we’ll include it in a match-up.
