Coupon Abbreviations

One of the best ways to learn about bargains and coupons is to learn from others who are experienced in the area. That is one reason, I hope, that you are here – to read and to learn. There are many great websites to read. I listed a couple of my favorites earlier in this frugal list. All of these have great tips and provide encouragement in the money saving journey.

As you read other websites, it is common to see abbreviations. Have you ever wondered what BC means in the coupon world? I’ll give you a hint. While BC stands for “Before Christ” in the Church, it’s a little different in the couponing world! Here are a list of common coupon abbreviations for your reference.

  • FAR – Free After Rebate
  • DND – Do Not Double
  • CAT – Catalina (Coupon that prints from a machine at the register, triggered by the purchases you buy)
