One of the mysteries of getting good coupon deals is the........ CATALINA! 
So what are those catalinas? How do you get them and how do they save you money? Companies want to reward consumers for purchasing their products and they do this in the form of a catalina. A catalina is an additional coupon that is printed at the time of checkout. The catalina printing machine  looks like this:
It will print coupons that often are related to items that you have purchased in your shopping trip. These coupons can then be used on a future shopping trip. Although I have had cashier's take them as they have printed out and have allowed them to be applied to my bill at the moment.
 So to illustrate how these work I will share with you a deal that I got.
I had 2 coupons for $3.00 of 2 Dove "go fresh" Deodorants. That is $1.50 off of each item. Each item had a retail price of $3.99. So the total retail price for 4 deodorants was $15.96. I used the 2 coupons which was equal to $6.00 off and then I received 2 catalinas for an additional $1.50 off. So the catalina total was $3.00 and the coupon total was $6.00 which is a savings total of $9.00. 
So the total price paid after coupons and catalinas for the 4 deodorants was $6.96.
That made the deodorants $1.74 each.
That is a 43% savings.
