Talk the Talk

Are you a beginning couponer?  Here are some terms used frequently in the couponing world:

SS: Smart Source
RP: Red Plum
P&G: Proctor & Gamble

These are the 3 major coupon inserts in the Sunday papers, and the inserts are the same no matter which paper you subscribe to.  The only difference is the RP, which either come in a mailer insert, usually on Tuesdays, or are included in the Daily Harold paper available in Utah county.
Sometimes newspapers have multiple inserts, so an insert could be designated as SS1 or SS2, etc. if multiples exist.

DND: Do Not Double.  Sometimes you'll see this on coupons, especially printable coupons, and it refers to double coupon events that some stores occasionally have where they will double the value of a coupon.  This does not mean that you cannot use multiple coupons in a transaction.
B1G1F: Buy 1 Get 1 Free
Catalina: These are the coupons/offers that print at the register at check-out at some grocery stores.  Coupons are usually store-specific.
Beer Rebate: Rebates offered by different beer companies for various purchases.  In the state of Utah, beer purchase is not required for the rebate!

Have any questions about terms not listed above?  Please leave me a comment, I'd love to answer your questions!
