Fabuless Coupon Tip Tuesday: Decoding The Store Ad
Here are a few definitions to help this make sense:
OYNSO: Off Your Next Shopping Order these will print as catalina’s or store coupons that come out next to the receipt machine that you can use on your next trip.
WYB: When You Buy
Instantly: Means the amount should be deducted on the receipt before you pay.
For more lingo go here.
Here are some examples:
These will require multiple transactions to get your best savings:
Get $3 OYNSO wyb 5 or more: Get $3 off your next shopping trip when you buy 5 or more.
When they use the term 5 or more that means you will want to only buy 5 to get your best savings. If you need 10 buy five more in a separate transaction. You will only get the $3 coupon once if you buy 10 in the same transaction. Buy in two transactions of 5, get two $3 coupons instead of one.
So when you see # or more just buy that # per transaction.
Get $1 OYNSO wyb three:
You can buy as many as many as you want and you should get a coupon for every set of three that you buy. Be sure to buy in multiple of 3 to get your best savings.
When you see this buy in multiple of the number specified to generate the coupon.
You will not have to mess with multiple transactions on these:
Save $10 instantly when you spend $25 or more on participating items:
You will want to divide your transactions into groups of $25, and separate your transactions. If you spend $50 in one transaction you will only get $10 off. If you spend $25 in one transaction and $25 in another you will get $10 off each transaction saving $20.
Save $2 instantly when you spend $10 on participating items:
You will save $2 every time you spend $10. If you spend $20 you save $4, spend $30 save $6 and so on.
Remember the when you are calculating your purchases to equal $10 or $25 it is the pre-coupon price that you are using.
