How Do You Pronounce Coupon?

A few weeks ago, I asked on Instagram how people pronounce the word “coupon”. The results of the poll were so interesting:

For the record, I say “Q-pon”. I’m originally from Kansas and it seems like most people there say it that way. (At least the people I was around!)

However, when I started doing radio and magazine interviews, I noticed that it always seemed like the people in media said, “Coo-pon”. I started to wonder if I was the one who had always pronounced it incorrectly.

Come to find out, you can pronounce it either way and both are correct, at least according to Merriam-Webster.

By the way, I thought this pronunciation note on Dictionary.com was funny…

I guess I follow the American pronunciation and am an “educated speaker”. 😉

How do YOU pronounce coupon? Do you think it’s a regional thing or based on something else? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
