Catalina Coupons are the coupons we get that are printed at the register during check out. I have recently discovered that there are two different types of coupons that print out there; store coupons and manufacturer coupons.
Store Coupons are generally a certain amount off your next purchase at that store. For example, you can not use a Walgreens Register Rewards at Meijer. You may only use them at Walgreens.
Manufacturer Coupons are coupons that are an amount off a certain product normally. These coupons can be used in any store. Like the coupons in the picture above, even though they say “Meijer” above the bar code, by the expiration date they say “Manufacturer CPN”, this means it can be used at any store.
I had NO CLUE that you could do this! I always assumed that if it was printed at Meijer, you used it at Meijer. Or if you got it at Target, you used it at Target, but that is not the case at all. If it says Manufacturer Coupon on it, you can use it anywhere.
So next time Family Fare gives you a coupon like this and that coupon would work great with a deal offered at Meijer, use it there and don’t let it go to waste!
