Coupon Lingo

Coupon Lingo:
BOGO or B1G1: That is a Buy One Get One sale.

Catalina or a CAT: A Catalina is a coupon that prints out at the cash register. It can be an actual coupon or it can be for a dollar amount off your next transaction. Catalina is simply the name of the company that makes these machines. These can be store coupons, manufacturer coupons or ONYO coupons.

OYNO: On Your Next Order. This is in reference to a Catalina offer, stores often time run promotions like; buy 4 of xx products get $4 ONYO. A CAT coupon will print for $4 that you can use on your next shopping trip order.

FAR: Free after rebate.

SS/RP/P&G/GM : refers to the Coupon Inserts found in the Sunday paper

Blinkie:A machine you might spot at the a store that spits out coupons. Grab the blinkies when you see them. They are typically available when an item is at the highest price. Just hold onto these coupons and wait for a sale.

Peelie: This is a coupon that is stuck to the front of an item/product and can be peeled off

Tear Pad: This is a coupon found on a pad of paper located next to a specific product in your grocery store.MQ: Manufacturer coupon

ECBs or EBs: CVS’s store program. Extracare bucks are awarded for specific items you purchase and can be used like cash on virtually anything in the store.

OOP: This is your out of pocket expense, after coupons, discounts, and rebates applied.

Rolling:This is when you use a Catalina, RR, or a gift card to pay for another transaction and get yet another Catalina, RR, or gift card back. For example, if you buy 2 boxes of cereal at Meijer and get a $2 ONYO CAT back- you might want to “roll” that $2 ONYO CAT by buying 2 more cereals- use your ONYO coupon to pay and then you’ll receive another CAT ONYO back. (Some CATS and RR will not roll)

Stacking:This is when you use a store coupon and a manufacturer coupon together. For example, you can use a Meijer coupon for a specific item as well as a manufacturer coupon on that same item (so 2 coupons for the same product) to double your savings.

Stockpile: This refers to items you are able to stock up on at rock bottom prices so you don’t ever have to pay full retail again.

YMMV: Your Mileage May Vary. For example, one Target store might have juice on temporary price cut for $1, while your Target is still at full retail price.
