Coupons 101

When you’re first learning how to use coupons there are several abbreviations that i use or that you will hear me say. I know this can seem confusing. Here are some of the terms and/or abbreviations I use:

$1/1, etc.:  Indicates the value of a coupon, $1 off 1 item in this instance but could be any value

BOGO or B1G1, Buy One Get One free

Catalina : Coupons which print at the register after your purchase is made. These can usually be used like cash on your next purchase.

ECB : Extra Care Bucks, these are from CVS

Filler : An item(s) you need to buy in order to get your total up to a certain amount in order to use a percentage off coupon or at walgreens you have to have more or equal number of items as you have coupons. For example I can’t have 2 items and 4 coupons for those items or use more RR ( see below) than I have.

GM : General Mills Cereal

IVC :Instant Value Coupon

MFR : Manufacturer

OOP : Out of Pocket

OYNO : On Your Next Order

P&G : Proctor & Gamble coupon insert found in the Sunday newspaper

Peelie : Coupon attached to an item’s packaging which can be peeled off

RR : Register Rewards, these print at walgreen at the register when you check out

Stacking : Using a manufacturer’s coupon in addition to a store coupon for an even lower price

WYB : When You Buy
