Acronynms & Abbreviations

I realized that I have been posting for a while with no explination of what my acronyms are. So here is a list. I will add more as I use more.

BC= Betty Crocker

CAT or Catalina=
Little coupon that prints out at the register.

GC=
Gift Certificate

HCW= Hot Coupon World

OOP
= Out of pocket (the amount of cash I spend after using coupons, gift cards, ect)

OYNSO
= On Your Next Shopping Order (a little coupon that prints out at the register that is like free money for the next time you shop there)

PYP= Pinching You Pennies

RR= Little coupon that prints out at the register at Walgreens for your next shopping trip (just like a OYNSO)

WAG- Walgreens

Coupon Values
.50/1= Money off / Product requirement. (.50/1 is $0.50 off 1 product . .50/2 is $0.50 off 2 products.

Frys and Safeway double my coupons up to $1.00. So if I have a .35c coupon it would take off .70c. Or if I have .75c coupon it will take off 1.00.

In all my posts I use 1 coupon per product unless stated otherwise. So it will look like this.

8- Green Giant Veggies @ 1.00 - .25/1 = $4.00

~Means~

I bought 8 green giant veggies that were 1.00 each. I used 4: 50/2 coupons taking off 4.00 giving me a total for all 4 equaling $4.00.

If I only had 3 coupons it would look like this.

6- Green Giant Veggies @ 1.00 - (4) .50/2=$4.00

Thanks for posting your Abreviations. It helps alot...I was getting very confused. Could you also explain the coupon price....what I mean is... whatis -.40/1 or ...... -.25/2? I try and figure out how the final cost works and what the actual value of the coupon was or how many coupons you actually used...and I can't quite figure it out. I would love an explanation.... Thanks

Ok, I added that too. Plus I added a link to the top of the blog to make it easier to look up later.

4- Green Giant Veggies @ 1.00 - .50/2 = $4.00

~Means~

I bought 4 green giant veggies that were 1.00 each. I used 4: 50/2 coupons taking off 4.00 giving me a total for all 4 equaling $4.00.

To me .50/2 would mean you need to buy two products to get .50 cents off. Am I right or wrong?

And the total of $4.00 is that what you paid? Or is that $4 off the vegetables and therefor free...
I am still so confused.....
