One of the most common questions that I am asked is: “I don’t understand what your coupon abbreviations mean. How do I know where to find the coupon you’re writing about?”
Get ready for a crash course in Couponing Terms!
When I write about deals that I find at the store using coupons, I will typically write the coupon similar to this: $.75/1 RP 4/5.
Translation: I used a coupon from the April 5th Red Plum insert. Its value is 75 cents off of 1 item.
Here are some common coupon related abbreviations:
SS: SmartSource insert
RP: Red Plum insert
P&G: Proctor and Gamble insert
Unilever: Unilever Insert
DND: Do not double
DNT: Do not triple
YMMV: Your mileage may vary (what works for one person at one store may or may not work for you)
B1G1/BOGO: Buy one get one
WYB: When you buy
OYNO: On your next order
OOP: Out of pocket
