Below are the crazy couponing lingo and abbreviations that I use on a daily basis. I know the abbreviations are confusing, but as you become familiar with them, you will recognize the abbreviations and they will become second nature!
B1G1 or BOGO = Buy One, Get One Free
B2G1 = Buy Two, Get One Free
Blinkies = Coupons that are in the coupon dispensers attached to shelves in your store. Dispenser is often red and often blinking.
DND = Do Not Double (this applies to people who shop at stores that double coupons. If you live in FL, most stores in FL do not double coupons)
ECB = Extra Care Bucks (instant rewards that print out when you purchase select sales items at CVS)
Hangtag = Coupons “hanging” around the necks of bottles, jars, etc at your store.
MAN or MFR = Manufacturer Coupon
MIR = Mail in Rebate
MM = Moneymaker
OOP = Out of Pocket
PG = Procter & Gamble Coupon Insert
Peelie = Coupon attached to items at stores that you have to peel off
RP = Red Plum Insert or printable coupons HERE
RR= Register Rewards (instant rewards that print out when you purchase select sales items at Walgreens)
SS = Smart Source Insert or printable coupons HERE
Tearpad = Coupons you have to tear off of pads at your grocery store
WYB = When You Buy
YMMV = Your Mileage May Vary (this means that a deal that works for me at my store, may work differently for you at your local store)
