RR=Register Reward
B1G1 or BOGO= Buy one get one
FAR=Free After Rebate
MIR=Mail In Rebate
OOP=Out Of Pocket
WYB=When You Buy
YMMV=Your Mileage May Vary (it worked for me, but it may not work everywhere)
TMF=Try Me Free
Peelie= those coupons on products like a sticker

Tearpad=the coupons you find around stores, grocery stores etc that are on pads where you can just rip the coupons off.
