Coupon Lingo

You can find this on many website but I thought we should post up the list for our members to refresh their memories as well as something the newbies can begin to start learning. Here are the most common ones:

NOTE: LOCATE ALL THE STORES CLOSE TO YOU AND FIND OUT THEIR SALE AND COUPON DAYS.

COUPON DAY: Day your local store offers coupons (usually offered one or two days only) DOUBLE COUPON DAY: Coupon that a grocery store offers double in value.         TRIPLE COUPON: A coupon that a grocery store triples in value.                               FREE ITEM COUPON: A coupon that allows you to get the product completely free.           BLINKIES: In-store coupons near the product, usually from a red blinking box.
BOGO or B1G1 Free: Buy One Get One Free.
CAT or CATALINA: Coupon that prints at the register after purchase.
