If you follow me on Twitter, you may have seen me mention Catalina coupons. Very often, Catalina coupons are high value coupons, so it is good to know all about them.

Catalina coupons are coupons that print out from that little printer at the cash register. They can print out during the time that your purchases are being rung up, or sometimes after your receipt is printed. The cashier should hand you the Catalina coupons when you get your receipt.

Very often, the cashier may either not notice the Catalina coupons, ignore the Catalina coupons or accidentally give them to the person who is in line after you, so it pays to keep an eye out on that machine. You may also find some stray Catalina coupons in your shopping cart or in the parking lot, since many shoppers don’t know what these are and tend to leave them behind.

A Catalina coupon is either a reward for purchasing certain products, such as $4 off your next order if you buy two boxes of General Mills cereal, or an incentive to try a new product, such as $2 off 10 containers of YoPlait yogurt after you just finished buying Dannon Yogurt.

Usually, Catalina coupons specify that they must be used in a specific store (the one where you just did your shopping.) But you can use them elsewhere, if you find another store that takes competitor coupons.

How can you increase the chance of getting Catalina coupons? There are a couple of ways. You can check the store flyers to see if they announce any deals. You can follow me on Twitter, because I’ll post deals that trigger Catalina coupons. You can switch back and forth between brands on the items you buy instead of being brand loyal.

Happy Shopping!

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
