So I have been meaning to do this post forever and thank you to those who took my survey and reminded me!

Couponing has a lot of abbreviations that us bloggers to use to save some time when we do the match ups.  Without knowing what they mean it can be confusing.  So here is a list of the most common ones:

BLINKY = In Store Smart Source Coupons (these are the ones on the machines attached to the shelves with the blinking lights)

BOGO/B1G1 = Buy One Get One Free

CATALINA = Coupon printed at register after purchased, long narrow coupons

DND = Do not Double

ECB = ExtraCare Bucks (CVS)

GM = General Mills (Newspaper insert)

MIR = Mail in Rebate

OOP = Out of Pocket

P&G = Proctor & Gamble (Newspaper Insert)

Peelie = Coupon you peel off package

RP= Red Plum (Newspaper Insert)

RR = Register Rewards (Walgreens)

SS= Smart Source (Newspaper Insert)

STACKING = Using stores allow multiple use of coupons – manufacturer’s & store coupons or rebates.

TEAR PAD = A pad of coupons or MIR near a product or on display

UPR = Up + Rewards (Rite Aid)

WYB = When You Buy

I hope this helps! If you see any other ones let me know and I will add them to the list!
