Money in a Minute: First step to deciphering coupon code and lingo
WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – If you've ever tried to start saving money
with coupons but got too confused with the lingo, you're not alone.
It can be really overwhelming in the
beginning. Let's say you've got all your
coupons, you go online to see what the deals are, and you don't know what the
Pretend you see --on a blog-- something
like this: "SS 4/15 (exp 6/30)". All that means is the coupon can be found in
the Smart Source insert from the April 15th newspaper. The coupon expires on June 30th.
The three inserts you'll see most often
are "SS" for Smart Source, "RP" for Red Plum and "P&G" for Proctor and
Gamble. Those three companies are the
ones that make coupons and are distributed in newspapers. Sometimes you'll only get one insert; sometimes
you'll get all three. And during
holidays, you'll typically get none.
Remember, the bigger city papers usually
offer the most coupons.
