Coupon Lingo Part One...

A couple of weekends ago my friend and I drove to the north side of Houston for a coupon class. We had such a great time and the class was extremely informative! One of the first things I learned by listening and observing others in the class is to not take for granted the fact that others understand coupon's like a whole 'nother language in and of itself. So in case you've been like "Huh?" when reading posts here or on other coupon blogs, let me explain some coupon terms you may find on your deal hunts:
  • BLINKIE:  coupons found in those little black or red boxes next to products at grocery/drug stores. Normally they have a little light that blinks to catch the shoppers eye.
  • BOGO or B1G1: buy one get one
  • BTFE: Box Tops for Education
  • CAT/CATALINA: coupons given to you at the register with your receipt
  • ECOUPONS/EQs/LOADABLE:  electronic coupons you can load to your grocery loyalty card (there are currently several distributors of these:,, Kroger e-coupons, P&G e-saver)
  • CELLFIRE/CF: e-coupon website
  • PGESAVER/PGE: Proctor and Gamble e-saver 
  • SHORTCUTS/SC: e-coupon website
  • HOMEMAILER/HM:  coupons sent to you through the mail
