I pronounce it correctly. :)

Occasionally with some other words attached, ending with "left at home".

@mtm2: I do that, too, as well. Things like "on my counter" and "in my car, I'll be right back."

I've always used the second pronunciation you listed: cue-pon. Never really thought about it.

I say "coo-pon," which makes sense since it comes from the French "couper" ("coo-pay"), to cut. I know it's different in different regions and it's all valid, but "coo-pon" is just proper for me. And anyway, I say "kue-linary" for culinary, so why would I pronounce the beginning of coupon the same way? That's just crazy talk right there.

Apparently both ways are correct... According to merriam-webster:

\ˈkü-ˌpän, ˈkyü-\

Ever since the Ron White special, I have called them "koo-pins"

kewpawn.
COO-UUU-pahn.

I have been calling them "Cue-Pins" for years, Don't plan on changing it anytime soon either.

@goldenthorn: I am the opposite. Cue for coupon and coo for culinary, not that I say culinary very often. I do here both ways for coupon said around where I live.

vote-for4vote-against

I say coo-pon.

BTW, I also say mis-chuv-us not mis-chee-vee-us, fo-lee-uj not foil-uj and skahn (rhymes with dawn) not scone (rhymes with phone).

"Pardon me, would you have any grey coupons?"

I say it both ways depending on who I'm with. My mom = qpon, my wife = koopon. They both think I'm weird if I mix it up.

Everybody all at once....

NEW-CLEAR.

All told.
