Common Coupon Terms

Here's a list of some of the most common coupon terms that you'll find on my site and all over the internet. It's kind of like a secret language. I know it's easy to get overwhelmed, but you’ll pick them up quickly and soon you’ll be speaking the secret language too! Enjoy!

SS: SmartSource insert in your paper.

RP: Red Plum insert in your paper.

P&G: Proctor & Gamble insert in your paper. Usually comes once a month.

ECB: Extra Care Bucks, CVS “cash” earned when you buy certain items & prints at the bottom of your receipt.

RR: Register Rewards, Walgreens “cash” earned when you buy certain items & prints out separately from receipt, from a separate machine.

Cat/Catalina: print out from the Catalina machine next to the receipt printer.

Peelie: found on packages.

Blinkie: Coupons from the red “blinking” SmartSource machines in the store aisles. These are the ones that your kids already love to grab!
