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!
