Couponing Lingo and Abbreviations

This is for those of you who are wondering what in the world some of those abbreviations and terms mean!

Blinkie = A coupon from one of those machines you see in the store that blinks; the coupon machine is usually located right next to the item that it's to be used for. Looks like this:

BOGO = Buy one, get one free

Catalina (cat.) = A coupon that prints along with your receipt; usually triggered by a specific item that you purchased. Looks like this:

CRT = Cash Register Tape; a coupon that prints at the bottom of your receipt

ECB's = Extracare Bucks at CVS; go here for more information about CVS

GM = The General Mills insert from the Sunday paper

IP = Internet printable coupon

Peelie = A coupon attached to the product that you can peel off and use instantly.

PG = The Proctor and Gamble insert from the Sunday paper

RP = The Redplum insert from the Sunday paper

S = The Smartsource insert from the Sunday paper

S2 = The 2nd Smartsource insert on the weeks when there are 2.

Tearpad = A pad of coupons where you can just tear one off. These are often found on cooler doors. They may or may not be next to the item that they are to be used for.

Hope this helps some of you out!

If there's anything I missed that you're wondering about, just let me know!
