Couponing Terms You Need To Know:

One Coupon Per Purchase
You'll see this in the fine print on most coupons. Words like “purchase” or “purchase of item” mean you can use one type of coupon for every individual item purchased. Purchase 20 items, use 20 coupons.
There are 3 types of coupon inserts distributed in the Sunday paper: Look for PG (Procter & Gamble) on the first Sunday of every month and SS (SmartSource) and RMN (RetailMeNot) on most non-holiday weekends.
Stacking means layering coupons, sales, rebates, and promotions to build the biggest overall discount possible on an individual product.
Money Maker
A term we use when the final price after coupons, rebates, gift cards, and “on your next order” coupons falls below $0.00. When you earn back more than you pay out, it's a moneymaker.
