Before we get too far, I’d like to take a moment and help you understand Bargain Jargon. I know you’ve seen BOGO, WYB, OYNO, RP and PG listed on Saving with Shellie. If you’re not really sure what they all mean, here’s a quick run down.
BOGO = Buy one get one free
CRT = Cash Register Tape (a coupon printed at the end of a CVS receipt)
ECB = CVS ExtraCare Buck
FAR = Free After Rebate
GM = General Mills Coupon Insert
MFR = Manufacturer
MQ = Manufacturer Coupon
MIR = Mail In Rebate
OOP = Out Of Pocket
OYNO = On Your Next Order
PG/P&G = Proctor & Gamble Coupon Insert
PSA = Prices Start At
Q = Coupon
RP = Red Plum Coupon Insert
RR = Register Reward (Walgreens version of ECBs)
SS = SmartSource Coupon Insert
WYB = When You Buy
Need a refresher course later? You can always find the Abbreviations listed in the Couponing 101 section above. Or look way down at the bottom of the page in my footer. You’ll see Abbreviations listed in Hot Topics.
