Here is a quick reference to abbreviations used on Coupons For Your Family and Printable Coupons For Free in regards to Sunday Coupon inserts:

P&G: Procter & Gamble Sunday insert
RP: Red Plum
SS: SmartSource
V: Valassis
When I list the store deals and refer to a coupon from a Sunday insert, the information on where to find the coupon is in parentheses.
For example,(SS 12/14/08) would indicate that a coupon came from a SmartSource insert that was distributed in the 12/14/08 Sunday newspaper.


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
Blinkies: = Grocery/drugstore coupon dispensers with blinking lights

CRT: = Cash register tape, usually used when referring to CVS coupons that print with receipt
DND: = Do not double
ECBs: = ExtraCare Bucks, CVS loyalty rewards system
FAR: = Free after rebate
IPQ: = Internet printable coupon
IVC: = Instant Value Coupon, Walgreens’ store coupons found in ads and ESR booklet
MFR: = Manufacturer
MIR: =  Mail-in rebate
OYNO: =  On your next order
OOP: = Out of pocket
Peelie: = Peel-off coupon found on product packaging
PSA: = Prices starting at
RRs: =  Register Rewards, Walgreens’ Catalina coupons
SCR: = Single Check Rebate, Rite Aid monthly rebates program
+UP: = Rite Aid loyalty rewards system
UPC: = Universal product code, bar code
WT: = Wine tag
WYB: = When you buy
YMMV: = Your mileage (or manager) may vary, meaning some stores might give you a deal but others might not


  1. What does the “R” mean in (SS 06/19/11 R)? I have looked in Smart Source from 6/19/11 and can’t find the coupon. I have had trouble finding other ones with the “R” as well. Thanks for your help!
