Learn the talk!

Since we have this weekend off from clipping our coupons, let's get back to class and learn something new. Last week you learned a bit about the fundamentals of couponing and how to get started, today we're going to learn about the language of couponing. Here you will find the meanings to common coupon abbreviations or as I like to call it "coupon talk".
