If you are new to using coupons at drugstores or (like me) sometimes forget what all the acronyms mean, this quick Coupon Lingo guide is for you.

BOGO – Buy One, Get One free

BOGO ½ – Buy One, Get One half-price

B2GO – Buy Two, Get One free

ECB – Extra Care Buck at CVS – Qualifying purchase prints out a dollar amount register reward to use on your next purchase. For example, purchase two Nivea lotions for $10, receive a $4ECB that you can spend on your next purchase, making those two lotions only $3 each instead of $5. Score!
