This post focuses on the different types of coupons. I’ve included a photo so you can have a visual of what the coupon looks like.  You can print this post and keep it with you to become familiar with these coupons.

I usually walk every aisle in the grocery store so I don’t miss out on these coupons (It’s a good workout too!). It’s important to know what the coupons are called so when your looking at store match ups, you understand what they’re talking about.

Blinkie Coupon – These are the coupons that come out of the little machines (with the little blinking lights) found near certain items in the grocery store. The coupons are usually in the machines for 4 weeks and can hold over 300 coupons.  

Booklets and Pamphlets – These can contain coupons, recipes or information.  They can be found in your store or I will post about them so you can sign up for it.


Catalina Coupon – These print at the register. They may also be called a check out coupon. These are good “ONYO” (on your next order), a specific product or announce an upcoming deal. These coupons are store specific and can only be redeemed at the store you received it from. The store logo usually prints on them so you know where to redeem it.

Peelie Coupon – A coupon attached to a product.  You can only take the coupon if you buy the product. Never just take a “peelie” off the product.

Printable Coupon – Sometimes referred to as IPs. They may be on a company’s website. Many can be found on Smart Source, Coupons. com and Red Plum websites. You can visit my Coupons page for a list of several printable sources available. You will most likely need to download a Coupon Software to print these offers. This is usually only required the first time you print.
