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)
ECB = Extra Care Bucks (instant rewards that print out when you purchase select sales items at CVS)
Hangtag = Coupons “hanging” around the necks of bottles, jars, etc at your store.
MAN or MFR = Manufacturer Coupon
MIR = Mail in Rebate
MM = Moneymaker
OOP = Out of Pocket
PG = Procter & Gamble Coupon Insert
Peelie = Coupon attached to items at stores that you have to peel off
RP = Red Plum Insert or printable coupons HERE
RR= Register Rewards (instant rewards that print out when you purchase select sales items at Walgreens)
SS = Smart Source Insert or printable coupons HERE
Tearpad = Coupons you have to tear off of pads at your grocery store
WYB = When You Buy
YMMV = Your Mileage May Vary (this means that a deal that works for me at my store, may work differently for you at your local store)
hi, love this website. what does “rolling” mean in place of a coupon’s exp date? (Specifically on “hot coupon world dot com’s” coupon database?) Thanks!
If a coupon is rolling it is a printable and it means that the expiration date is custom to when you print a coupon. For a rolling coupon the expiration date will normally be a month after you printed it.
what does the R mean after an insert coupon for example THANKS
mt olive SS 8/26/12 R

Great question – the R behind the coupon location date means that it’s a Regional coupon, and may not be in your local insert. Hope this helps!
