Coupon Lingo

Print Friendly

Ever wonder what PSA and WYB mean in the coupon world? Well, here you go!

Sunday inserts:

P&G: Procter & Gamble Sunday insert
RP: Red Plum
SS: SmartSource
GM: General Mills

When I post my weekly deals, the information in the parenthesis refers to the insert and date of publication.
For example: (RP 2/26/12) refers to the Red Plum insert that can be found in the newspaper from 2/26/12.

Coupon lingo:

$1/1, $1/2: One dollar off one item, one dollar off two items, etc.
2/$1, 3/$2: Two items for one dollar, three items for two dollars, etc.
B1G1: Buy one item, get one item free
B2G1: Buy two items, get one item free
