8/21 SS Insert Refers to... 
the SmartSource Coupon Insert found in the August 21st Sunday Newspaper,
write the dates on the front of the inserts when you get them,
or the dates are actually printed in very tiny print on the binding.
(I put mine in hanging file folders)

Final Price = 
the end price after sale, coupon(s), register rewards etc 
BUT it is a pretax amount since tax varies so much in different areas
Final Price = FREE means it is FREE before tax
Since sales tax varies so much in different areas
coupon bloggers will always refer to the end price PRE-TAX

I will continue to add abbreviations to this list if I come across something new.
And as ALWAYS.... 
If you need something explained when reading a blog... ASK :)
