Master List of Abbreviations



With all the deals that you will see, there is unique coupon lingo that I use to describe the deals.  Here are a few of the abbreviations that you will see.  Also as you will see I use some more than others.

$/x: A certain dollar amount off of a certain number of items. Such as $1/1 is one dollar off one item and $1/2 is one dollar off two items.

x/$: How many items you can get for a certain dollar amount. For example, if I put 5/$10 then that means that five items will cost ten dollars total.
