Below are the crazy couponing lingo and abbreviations that I use on a daily basis. I know the abbreviations are confusing, but as you become familiar with them, you will recognize the abbreviations and they will become second nature!
B1G1 or BOGO = Buy One, Get One Free
B2G1 = Buy Two, Get One Free
Blinkies = Coupons that are in the coupon dispensers attached to shelves in your store. Dispenser is often red and often blinking.
DND = Do Not Double (this applies to people who shop at stores that double coupons. If you live in FL, most stores in FL do not double coupons)
