What is a Catalina?

A Catalina is a long, receipt-like coupon that prints out with your receipt at the checkout counter. It can also be called a checkout coupon. Catalinas can be used in your next transaction to pay for almost anything in-store, with a few usual exceptions (alcohol, tobacco, prescriptions, gift cards, and others). Most Catalinas can actually be used in any store that accepts coupons, not only the one it was printed from, since they’re considered manufacturer coupons.
