❥Coupon Lingo

If you’re reading this blog and it seems like we’re speaking a different language sometimes, it’s because we are.  Couponese.  Here’s a handy guide to deciphering the code:

B1G1 or BOGO = Buy one get one free

Blinkies = coupon dispensed near product, in the store (usually from a “blinking” red box)

Catalina = a coupon dispensed at the register at the time of purchase (either at end of receipt or separate)

ECB = Extra Care Buck (CVS)

IP = Internet Printable (a coupon you print off the internet)

MFR = manufacturer

MQ = manufacturer coupon

MIR = Mail in Rebate

OOP = Out Of Pocket

P&G = Proctor & Gamble Sunday supplement coupons

Peelie = coupon that you peel off the package

RP = red plum coupon insert from Sunday newspaper

Rolling = When a RR is rolling, it means that you can use that RR to purchase more of that same item (i.e. You buy Dove Soap, you get Dove Soap RR, you use these to buy more Dove Soap, and it rolls on and on that way)

Roll your RR = using the RR gained from a previous transaction to buy more items that will earn RR.  If done well, you can keep rolling week after week so that your Out of Pocket costs remain very small.  Sometimes it is necessary to roll your RR to earn new ones if they are about to expire (they don’t last long!)

RR = Register Rewards (these are the catalinas that print out at Walgreens)

SS = Smartsource coupon insert from Sunday newspaper

Stacking = the art of “stacking” your coupons in a certain order so that they will ring up how you want them to

Tear Pad = A pad of refund forms or coupons found hanging from a store shelf or display

WYB = When You Buy
