Have you ever seen an AWESOME deal to grab diapers for SUPER cheap and then see things like “Use (1) $1.00/1 Luvs Diapers, PG 7/23” and wonder what in the world is a PG? Then you try to click on it to see if you can print it, only to have no such luck and are still left wondering, “Where can I get that coupon?” because let’s face it, diapers aren’t cheap! I’m here to help! I have broken down what everything means.
Many people ask me what certain initials mean they come across on coupon sites and groups. A lot of it is Coupon Lingo or shorthand for common phrases. You may see some of these on private or public Facebook Coupon Groups. I don’t use all of these, but have put together a list of all of the Coupon Lingo I have seen and/or use with the meanings so you can understand what it means.
Coupon Lingo Broken Down:
- SS=Smart Source coupon insert
- RP= Red Plum coupon insert
- PG= Proctor and Gamble coupon insert
- TP= Tear Pad (normally found on a shelf next to the product)
- WYB= When You Buy, referring to a deal when you get a free item when you buy a qualifying product
- OOP= Out of Pocket, referring to how much money was spent
- NLA= No Longer Available, referring to a coupon that is now no longer available to print
