Sadly, summer is fresh over! But now it’s time to get back at it and start LEARNING all the seemingly confusing coupon lingo!! Not sure what a CAT is and why on earth anyone would ROLL one?
Here are some VERY HELPFUL tips on COUPONING LINGO you need to know when reading our posts:

RC = Rain check; You can request these from the customer service department in a store when a sale item is out of stock, then you can come back in at a later time to get the item at that same sale price. Rain checks will never expire!
RR = Register Reward; this is for Walgreen’s. It prints out at the bottom of the receipt like a coupon and is good for your next purchase.
