COUPON LINGO

When you see blogs talking about coupons and deals a lot of times you will see something like this:

“Couponer’s Lingo” is enough to make any Coupon Virgin’s head spin… Hopefully this will help!
Ever seen something like this on KCL- B1G1 w/$2/1 from (3/15RP) & earn RR, then submit MIR (YMMV)
It’s almost laughable how ridiculous the code of couponers is!!
Once you figure it out though, it’s a piece of cake!
