So RMN stands for Retail Me Not — the coupon insert you get in the Sunday newspaper that used to be called Red Plum. Hope that helps! -Meg, MSM Team

If you buy 5 items, you can only use 5 coupons (including stacked Manufacturer and store coupons). Let’s say you have 6 coupons and 5 items, then you need a ‘filler’ or a small priced item so you can use the sixth coupon. The small items can be a 24 cent pencil, one piece of caramel near the register, etc… Hope this helps.
Also a filler can be used when your total is negative. Since most stores won’t “pay” you the difference, you can purchase a small item to bring your total positive.

If the first number on the coupon bar code is 5 the machine will automatically double, if the first number is 9 it will not no matter what the writing says. In coupon lingo: Five is Fine, Nine is Not.

When it states on a coupon that it cannot be doubled or tripled, I find that sometimes it automatically doubles at my local grocery store and sometimes it doesn’t. Could you explain this? Thanks.

Some other common ones (some are less relevant for grocery but still used):
AC = After coupon
AR = After rebate
FS = Free shipping
GC = Gift card/gift certificate
IR = Instant Rebate
OOS = Out of Stock

Some other industry terms, just as FYI:
CPG = Consumer Packaged Goods company/industry e.g., “Procter & Gamble is a CPG company”
HABA/HBA = Health and Beauty Aids – typically relating to non-food type products in a grocery store, you’ll see this on receipts sometimes or entered as a placeholder for a coupon that doesn’t ring up correctly

Can you add GM for the General Mills insert? BTW, I haven’t seen a Valassis coupon insert in ages. Do they have good coupons?

UPR stands for UP Rewards at Rite Aid. A coupon you get on your register receipt.
