Strategic Shopping Sunday - Coupon Terminology

Strategic Shopping Sunday - Coupon Terminology

Some times I will read a coupon or another blog and wonder if there should be a dictionary specific to couponing. I think it is really important to know and understand the terms that are found at the stores and on coupons. Here is a list of terms to help you be a strategic shopper

BOGO - Buy One Get One Free

B2G1 - Buy Two Get One Free

Catalina Coupon - Coupon that prints at the register. These coupons print for a variety of reasons. They may print because you bought a specific product and another company wants you to buy their product so they offer you a coupon. There are also specific sales that will generate these coupons.
also known as -Cat- Catalina coupon that prints at the register

ECB - Extra Care Bucks -found at CVS

OOP - Out Of Pocket
OYNO - On Your Next Order

P&G - Proctor & Gamble Coupon Insert

Per Purchase - This terminology is found on most coupons. This means that you can use a coupon for each purchase that you are making. A purchase is considered an item.
Here is an example
$1.00/1 coupon - you need to "purchase" 1 item
$1.00/3 coupo - you need to "purchase" 3 items
The number of items that need to be "purchased depends on the coupons terms.
This is used to enforce the point that you may not use two of the exact same coupon for one item.

Per Transaction - This terminology shows up every once in a while. With these coupons you can only use 1 of these coupons for your entire transaction.

RP - Red Plum Coupon Insert

RR - Register Reward - found at Walgreens

SCR - Single Check Rebate (Rite Aid)

SS - Smart Source Coupon Insert

WYB - When You Buy
