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:

SS=SmartSource

RP=Redplum

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.
