I know as a new couponer that it can be frustrating trying to read a blog and not know what all the abbreviations mean. I actually keep an abbreviation key on the right side of the blog, but I thought I would put together a list of abbreviations for you to reference as well…
-B1G1 (BOGO)= Buy one product and get one free
-exp = expiration date of the coupon
-MIR = Mail in rebate
-OOP = Out of pocket cost (what you would pay after coupons)
-SS = Smart Source insert -The dates with abbreviations is the date it was in the Sunday paper.
-RP = Red Plum insert -The dates with abbreviations is the date it was in the Sunday paper.
-P&G = Proctor and Gamble insert -The dates with abbreviations is the date it was in the Sunday paper.
-ECB = Extra Care Bucks at CVS
-RR = Register Rewards at Walgreens
-SCR = Single Check Rebate at Rite Aid
-WYB = When you buy
When you see a deal written like this:
Use $1/1 from 1/1 SS, you know it means that the coupon was found in the January 1st Smart Source insert from the Sunday paper.
