Couponing, Saving Money

Coupon Lingo

Let’s talk coupon lingo. What is coupon lingo? Coupon lingo is coupon abbreviations, acronyms and terms couponers use to describe shopping scenarios on blogs and in the forums or even provide you with a deal speaking with coupon lingo. Why do I need to know the coupon lingo? As you continue to follow my blog you will see coupon lingo that you will need to know and become familiar with in order to understand the information. I will be posting deals weekly at different stores to keep you engaged and to help you to continue to learn how to coupon.

I’m about to help you talk the coupon talk below you will find the abbreviations that you will run across on my blog and that you will also hear people use when they are out couponing in the store.

Let’s Get Started:
1.  $1.oo/1,  $.75/1, etc.- One dollar off one product, Seventy-Five cent off of one product, etc.
2.  $1.00/2, $.75/2, etc.- One dollar off two products, Seventy-Five cent off two products, etc. Which means you have to buy two of the products in order to use the coupon to redeem the savings. There would be no way that you can use it on one product and get the savings for half.
3.  BOGO- Buy One, Get One. I’m sure everyone is familiar with Buy one, Get One. BOGO is buy one item get one for free or either buy one item get one item half off. Buy one get one half off is where the two products ring up for half price. IMG_0838
3.  B1G1, B2G2- Then there is the written out method of showing B1G1 with the number. The B still stands for Buy and the G still stands for getting. The number is telling you how many products you have to buy in order for the purchase to qualify for the B1G1=Buy One, Get One or the B2G2=Buy Two, Get Two.
