Coupon Barcodes Explained

Coupon Decoding

(5) Number System Character (NSC):
This number determines if a coupon can be doubled. It will be either a 5 or a 9. A 5 allows doubling, and a 9 does not.

(11111) Manufacturer ID:
This simply identifies the manufacturer of the product(s) that the coupon is valid for. (Note: The Manufacturer ID is located on a products UPC.)

(222) Family Code:
This specifies the product(s) that the coupon will work with. Manufacturers assign family codes to their products, and supply the family codes to the retailers. Family code 992 is for no product verification, and family code 000 is for any product from the manufacturer. (Note: The Family Code can not be found on the product.)

(33) Value Code:
This specifies the coupon value. (Note: See the coupon value code chart below.)
