Pardon my French there... assuming you know what that stands for!  You'll see quite a few acronyms bandied about on deal blogs and forums, and it can be very confusing.  I will add a permanent this list of commonly used acronyms and terms to the "News & FAQs" section of the site for future reference!

B1G1 or BOGO: Buy one get one free

Blinkies: Coupons dispensed from the little red boxes on the store shelves

Catalina: coupon dispensed from a device at the register when you check out

DND: Do Not Double

ECBs: Extra Care Bucks (offered at CVS)

IMHO or IMO: In My Humble Opinion

IP: Internet Printable coupon

MFR: manufacturer

OOP: Out of Pocket; refers to cash/credit pulled out of your wallet for a transaction

OYNO: On Your Next Order; refers to catalina coupon usually for $x off your next purchase

Peelie: coupon stuck to a product that you peel off

PSA: Prices Starting At

RP: Red Plum coupon insert

SS: Smart Source coupon insert

TMF: Try Me Free; manufacturer rebate usually on the package

WYB: When You Buy

YMMV: You Mileage May Vary;a nice way of saying that something may or may not work at your store. Doesn't imply you're doing anything wrong- just that not all stores enforce policies the same way.
