    Ok, I'm sure this is a silly question, but what does "DH" stand for? I know it refers to your husband but I can't figure out what it stands for. Am I just completely computer illiterate?

    Okay. Found this page and I was like "Oh. So there are these kinds of abbreviation, eh?" Thanks dear forumers. I'll try to call my hubby as "DH" when he arrives. Let's see if he knows. haha

    One of my favorite couponing abbreviations is YMMV. I've heard it stands for "Your Mileage May Vary" - loose translation: "This worked for me in my store but you may not be so lucky!"

    It means that you must use it "after coupon". Sometimes you can "stack" coupons, but you have to use them in the right order to get the full benefit of the stack.

    Wow. This was so incredibly helpful! I have seen people write DH so many times and had no clue what they were referring to!
