The Pretty Girls Guide To: Coupon Lingo

Sunday, January 7, 2018

I must say that I am in genuine SHOCK at all the interest you ladies have in my couponing. But I must say that it makes my heart smile that so many of you are interested in couponing and in saving money for yourselves & your families.

Because their is such an interest I will be posting coupon hauls, tips, breakdowns and general coupon talk at least once every 2 weeks here on the blog to help the newbies out. I don't want this to turn into a coupon blog so I will be regulating the frequency of the post to that schedule.However if there is an AMAZING deal that I feel like all of my Pretty Girls need to know about ASAP ill post that here also. If you are looking for more daily post couponing or otherwise as always please follow my instagram HERE

You can also see my previous couponing newbie post HERE and my 15 quick tips for successful couponing HERE

Now on to todays post =)

I know being a coupon newbie or even looking into the coupon world can be overwhelming. If giant stock piles, long transactions and "crazy coupon ladies" were not enough. Couponing comes with its own language which to most looks like gibberish and a bunch of meaningless acronyms. 

But learning those "meaningless" acronyms are SUPER important to those interested in couponing. They can be indicators on how to do a deal, where it can be found and can even let you know whether or not chasing a deal is worth it. 

This coupon language is universal and is used everywhere, trust me if you have ever tried to read a coupon haul description or follow a coupon conversation on Instagram and you don't know your lingo you were surely left lost.

Below you will find a list of coupon acronyms and their meanings to help navigate you through coupon post on Instagram, other blogs and even when listening to other couponers talk =)
