Coupon 101: Coupon Lingo

So, with all of the coupons (or Q's) out there, it's necessary to make some abbreviations in order to tell you where to find your coupons, how much they are for, etc

Q: Coupon
B1G1: a buy one, get one free coupon
B2G1: A buy two, get one free coupon
$1/1: A $1 off of 1 item coupon
$1/2: A $1 off when you buy 2 items coupon
(Generally, I will list this for every coupon that I'm referencing.)

CAT: A Catalina coupon. It prints after you pay for your order and they are triggered by what you buy. Generally they are the coupons that print as a part of a promotion (buy X amount get Y amount off your next order).
TMF: A try me free coupons
FAR: Free after rebate
Blinkie: a machine at the supermarket that produces coupons!
Peelie: A coupon found on a product!
GC: Gift Card. Sometimes when you buy a products (or multiple products) a store will give you a gift card to use on your next purchase!

ECB: Extra Care Bucks, a program at CVS. They print on your receipt and are spendable like cash!
RR: Register Rewards, a program at Walgreens. The print as Catalina coupons after you pay. These guys are super tricky, and I will elaborate at a later time!
WAGs: Walgreens

SS: Smart Source, one of the Weekly inserts in the Sunday paper
RP: Red Plum, one of the Weekly inserts in the Sunday paper
P&G: Proctor & Gamble, a Monthly insert in the Sunday paper
GM: General Mills, an occasional insert in the Sunday paper
(So that I can tell you where to find the coupons in your paper!)
