Extreme Couponing Tip: Save Instantly vs. Save OYNO

“What is the difference between a promotion that says “Save Instantly at Checkout” as opposed to “Save on a Future Purchase?”

Save Instantly: This is a promo frequently seen at the high end grocery stores. When you buy the stated number or total dollar amount of participating products, the register will automatically take off the stated price once the correct items ring up or at the end of the transaction. Example: “Buy 10 Participating Products, Get $5 off Instantly!” Remember that often you must buy the products in certain increments for the discount to apply unless the promotion specifically states “Buy __ or more and save $__ each”.

Save ONYO (On Your Next Order):  When you purchase a certain stated dollar amount or a given number of participating products, you will either receive a coupon printout or a gift card to be used on your next order or a future purchase. You will not be able to use these on the transaction in which you earn them. These include Catalinas, Extra Bucks, Register Rewards, +UP Rewards, and Target gift card promotions.
