Coupon Lingo

This is some basic coupon lingo.  We use these throughout the website!
BOGO – Buy One Get One Free
Blinkie – SmartSource machine with a red blinking light on it. Coupons from those machines are referred to as ‘Blinkies’
BRICKS – “Bricks” coupons are internet printable coupons. If you print a “bricks” coupon, you will know based on a picture of a computer/printer with a small blinking dot as it sends the information to your printer. You can only print 1 of these coupons, however what you might not know is if you hit your back button 3 times after it is sent to the printer it will generally print a second copy of the coupon for you! If you want additional copies then you will need to use another IP address.
