Most people believe if they have a coupon, they're getting a good deal. In most situations that can be true but even better deals come from stores that double. ;) I've explained in the past using your coupon against store sales, you'll get some really great deals. But sweetening the deal with OYNO's (Off Your Next Orders) is the best deal ever, well besides free. Nothing can top walking out of a store with free items!
This past week one local grocerry chain had a slew of OYNO's throughout the store. What are OYNO's? When you buy so much of certain products, out pops a coupon from a printer attached to the register. Some places also call them Catalina's. Call me a nutjob if you will, but I go down every isle looking for bright yellow tags on shelvees explaining specifics of the OYNO, pull out a pad of paper writing it down and then come home looking for coupons and then returning. Why? Here's an example.
Toaster Strudels SALE $1.99 each (Buy 4 or more get $4.00 OYNO) Take (4) .50 coupons in to store that doubles making my 4 coupons $1 each. TOTAL PRICE I PAID= $1.00 each Not only did I get 4 toaster studels fo $1 each box, I also recieved a $4 coupon for my next shopping trip there.
Sometimes Catalina's may be offering money off a certain product you had bought which is still not a bad deal but honestly if you find an OYNO offering "cash" off your bill, well that to me is better. So I will happily go through my fliers this week looking for more awesome deals that I can pair with my coupons to use my $8 in OYNO's on.
