In the world of couponing and saving money, there are lots and lots of special words that we use, that most people might not recognize.
Peel off coupon “peeile” – is a coupon that are stuck to a product and needs to be peeled off – hence the name “peelie”.
Catalina – Coupons that print at the register and can be for money off your next purchase, triple or double points, extra points or money off of a specific item or something like that.
Bogo – Buy one, get one (free/half price). It means that if you buy one item then you get another for free (or sometimes for half price)
Sale cycle – the cycle that shops use when they decide what items should go on sale and when. Different items have different sale cycles.
Stockpile (noun) – you pantry that’s full of items that you’ve bought for next to nothing to keep you until the next time you find coupons and/or the shop has it on sale.
Stockpile (verb – to stockpile is to buy a lot of things with coupons when the item is at its lowest sale price to make it last until the next time the price is good.
These are just a few words, but they are amongst the most important ones and I’ll update this as often as possible.
