4. Some Couponing Lingo

Couponing jargon can seem like another language. Here are a few of the basics:
  • R or RP = Red Plum   (one of the newspaper inserts)
  • S or SS = Smart Source    (one of the newspaper inserts)
  • PG = P&G    (one of the newspaper inserts)
  • BOGO or B1G1 = By One Get One Free
  • MIR = Mail in Rebate
  • WYB = When You Buy
  • $1/2 = this is an example of a coupon that is worth $1.00 when you buy 2 of that product.
  • Stack = To stack means that you have a manufacturer's coupon (from the newspaper or printed) AND a store coupon (one that has the store's logo on it). You can use BOTH on the same item. 
Any others you're wondering about?

K, can't thank you enough! The thing that is helping me get started is the fact that I need to create a list. And that you told me how to organize your coupons! That was super helpful...and the lingo!!!
