Coupon Lingo For Beginners

Coupon Lingo

What is Coupon Lingo?

Coupon Lingo is the language you need to learn to understand how to start couponing. Its a world of abbreviations and slang terms you will see when learning how to coupon!

Abbreviations used on Coupons For Your Family and Printable Coupons For Free in regards to Sunday Newspaper  inserts:

P&G: Procter & Gamble Sunday insert
RMN: previously Red Plum now called Retail Me Not
SS: SmartSource
V: Valassis- you dont see this much anymore

Sunday Insert coupons are VERY regional. Just because we have it listed doesn’t mean it will definitely be in your newspaper.

You can see the prediction of what coupons will be in the Sunday Newspapers for the year here:
2018 Sunday Coupon Insert Schedule

And you can see our weekly Sunday Coupon Preview of what expected in each Sundays paper here:
Sunday Coupon Preview
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.
