I’ll include a link to this post at the bottom of every new match-up, so let me know what I missed and anything else a new follower would need to help out with my deals (or even the format). I could really use your help with this since this is for YOU. :) I feel like the math teacher that can’t remember how to teach addition. Yeah, if you’ve ever had a teacher like that, you know what I mean.

What are ECB’s, RR’s, SCR’s and UP
The abbreviations are expanded as follows: Extra Care Bucks, Register Rewards, Single Check Rebate, and well, UP Rewards. ECB’s, RR’s and UP Rewards are store money that can be used against future purchases at their respective stores. Some print directly on the receipt at CVS (ECB) and Rite Aid (UP). The Register Rewards (RR) print separately from the receipt at Walgreens as Catalina coupons, but again, can be used against future purchases at Walgreens. Be careful, however, not to use the RR against the purchase of another item by the same manufacturer hoping to obtain another RR. This is called ‘rolling’, and the new RR will NOT print. If it does roll, I’ll let you know. It’s rare and generally only lasts a couple of days.
You CAN use a Register Reward (RR) toward the purchase of another item by a different manufacturer and the Register Reward will print. Be sure you select an item called a *filler* because you’re only allowed one manufacturer coupon per item in a transaction.
APDO – AntiPerspirant/Deodorant
Big Red – CVS red kiosk
BOGO/B1G1F – Buy One, Get One (Free)
Catalina or CAT- A machine generated manufacturer or store coupon obtained at the register separate from the cash receipt.
MIR – Mail In Rebate
OOP – Out Of Pocket. What you can expect to pay at the register.
OYNO – On Your Next Order. This abbreviation is generally used to represent a coupon you receive at checkout that you can use on your next visit.
P & G – Procter & Gamble (monthly coupon insert)
Rolling – Using a Catalina coupon (see above) to aid in purchasing the same item again (rare) or another product by the same manufacturer. UP Rewards at Rite Aid and Extra Care Bucks at CVS can be rolled into the same item again or new item purchases.
RP – Red Plum (newspaper coupon insert or website)
RR – Register Rewards (Walgreens)
SCR – Single Check Rebate ( Rite Aid). A manufacturer rebate program hosted by Rite Aid. The booklet is typically found near the weekly ad. Receipts are submitted by mail or online and a monthly check is generated at your request. The check can be cashed or used as payment in any Rite Aid store.
SS – Smart Source (newspaper coupon insert or website)
Stack(ing) – Using a manufacturer and store coupon together for additional savings.
UP Rewards – Rite Aid ‘money’ that prints on the bottom of the register receipt for purchasing specific items in store.
VV – Video Values (coupons) – The Rite Aid website hosts manufacturer videos that you can watch and obtain printable Rite Aid coupons. Why would you want these? They contain Rite Aid specific bar codes, so they can be stacked with manufacturer coupons.
WYB – When You Buy
YMMV – loosely Your Mileage May Vary. My store may allow me to use a bunch of coupon combinations that border insanity while yours may not. You’re not likely to see this much from me. I don’t like risky propositions. I will only give you deals you can defend easily with the coupon policy.
