Welcome to 30 Days of Extreme Reality Couponing! Be sure to follow along with our tips on our Couponing 101 page. And, please spread the word and tell your friends about this series so they can also save 50-80% on their grocery bills!

Do our coupon matchups have you scratching your head? A matchup is when we take your weekly sales flyer and match it up to coupons that are available. We then tell you the final price so you can plan your shopping trip according to the deals. The big question, what does SS, RP or P&G mean? Let's look at an example below:

Huggies Diapers $5.99

-$5/1 SS 1/23/11

=.99 per pack (wouldn't that be a great deal?)

First, the $5/1 means $5 off the purchase of 1 package. If we were to say $5/2, it would mean $5 off the purchase of two packages. Second, the SS means SmartSource. This is an insert that comes in your newspaper or mail. Here's a list of those abbreviations:



P&G=Proctor and Gamble

The numbers next to the SS in the example above is the date when that coupon came out in your newspaper. This way, depending on how you organize, you can go back to that insert and find the coupon easily. 

The best news is that we do provide a ton of matchups every single week so you don't have to do them yourself! That saves you time AND money!
