There are lots of you out there that are new to saving money by using coupons and hunting deals. I know you are trying to make sense of it all and a good way to start is by learning the lingo. What is BOGO, RRs and ECBs? Here are the answers:
ECB = Extra Care Buck (CVS coupon good on your next order)
RR: Register Rewards (Walgreens Rewards program, manufacturer coupon good on your next order)
SCR: Single Check Rebate (Rite Aid rebate program)
+UP rewards: Rite Aid reward program (coupons good on your next order)
WYB = When you Buy
BOGO = Buy one Get one free
FAR = Free After Rebate
IP = Internet Printable Coupon
IVC = Instant Value Coupon at Walgreens. Walgreens store coupon.
MIR = Mail In Rebate
OYNO = On Your Next Order
OOP = Out of Pocket.
RP = Red Plum insert
SS = Smartsource insert
P&G = Procter and Gamble insert
GM = General Mills insert (usually a Smartsource insert)
Moneymaker: getting something better than free after coupons, sale and store promotion. AKA: getting paid to shop.
CAT = A cat is a catalina coupon that prints at check out. It can be for $$ off a certain product or for $$ off your next order.
YMMV: Your Mileage May Vary. It basically means that your experience may be different from the rest.
IMO: In my opinion.
