I remember the first time I scrolled through the posts in the Facebook couponing group I had just become a part of, it was like I was trying to comprehend a completely different language. Catalina, OOP, MFR, RR, SS, peelie - it just went on and on... and on! What in the heck were these crazy ladies talking about and why does it all look like one giant calculus problem!?
Well I have since learned how to decode couponer speak and today I am going to share my knowledge of it with you!
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
BOGO or B1G1 - Buy one, get one. It usually ends with free or half off, make sure you read the ad/sign carefully to figure out which one.
Catalina or CAT - These are the coupons that print out at the register after you check out and can be used towards future purchases.
Extrabucks or ECB - CVS rewards program. These print out at the register and are similar to catalina coupons.
EXP - Expiration date
MIR - Mail in rebate
MM - Money maker.
OOP - Out of pocket. This refers to the amount you will pay after coupons at the store.
OYNO - On your next order.
Peelie - The coupons you find at the store that are attached to a product. Make sure you read the fine print because generally the peelie can be used towards other products as well.
P&G - Proctor and Gamble. They generally have a coupon insert in the first Sunday's newspaper of the month.
Q's - Coupons
RR- Register Rewards. Walgreen's rewards program and their version of a catalina coupon.
RP - Red Plum. One of the Sunday paper coupon inserts.
SS - Smart Saver. Another Sunday paper coupon insert.
WAGS - Walgreens
WYB - When you buy
$1/1, $2/1, $.50/1, etc - One dollar off one, two dollars of one, fifty cents off one, etc...
$1/2, $2/2, $.50/2, etc - One dollar off two, two dollars off two, fifty cents off two, etc...
