Coupon Lingo

Coupon Lingo is the language used in couponing to shorten the wording.

 

Example:  Instead of saying, “Tide Detergent is on sale this week for $5.99.  Use the $2/1 coupon found in the 10/30 Procter & Gamble.  Get a $10 Prepaid MasterCard when you buy $50 in Procter & Gamble products by mail.”

We would say

“Tide Detergent $5.99

use $2/1 Tide from 10/30 P&G and submit for $10 P&G Prepaid MC wyb $50.”
