For example if I told you:
Mott's Apple Sauce BOGO $1.99
use .50/1 from SS 5/1
What would that mean to you? Well it would mean that Mott's Apple Sauce is Buy One Get One free at $1.99. Meaning at Publix and some other stores you could purchase 1 for .98 cents.
It would also mean that you should use the .50 cents off of 1 mott's apple sauce coupon located in the May 1st Smart Source insert. (now this is just an example, I don't believe such a coupon exists in the 5/1 SS insert)
So here's the lowdown on all the lingo.
The following list covers Types of Coupons:
|B1G1, BOGO, B1G1F||Buy 1, Get One Free|
|$/$$||Dollars off when you buy XX dollars|
|.50/1||Fifty cents off one items|
|.50/3||Fifty cents off 3 items|
|Catalina||Coupon dispensed at the register at the time of purchase (on separate paper)|
|Tearpad||Pad of refund forms or coupons found hanging from a store shelf or display|
|MFR or MQ||Manufacturer or Manufacturer Coupon|
|PG, P&G||Proctor & Gamble Sunday Insert Coupons|
|RP||Red Plum Sunday insert coupons|
|SS||Smartsource Sunday insert coupons|
|Peelie||Coupon that you peel off the package|
|Blinkie||Coupon dispensed near product, in the store (usually from a “blinking” red box)|
|eCoupon||Found on the Internet but different because it is uploaded to a store card|
|FAR||Free After Rebate|
|MIR||Mail in Rebate|
Now that you have an overview of the lingo. Tomorrow we'll talk about sale cycles and stocking up! That's how you really save the most money!
