Do you experience an increased heart rate, profuse sweating, stuttering, or an overall lack of confidence when approaching the checkout zone with your coupons in hand? Or maybe you’re stoked about the great deals you’ve just found in-store until you face a cashier who is having a bad day and isn’t happy with the site of your stack of coupons (…not to mention the long line of customers behind you that are now annoyed by your coupon-saving endeavor!)?

Well, if you experience one or more of these symptoms or have found yourself in this same situation, then this is the video for you!

Enjoy!

“Hip” Tips for Feeling Empowered at the Register:

(1) Know your store’s coupon policy!! For more information, check out the Hip2Save Store Guides found here. If you are not able to locate a coupon policy online for your local store, I highly recommend that you email customer service asking for a copy of the policy/guidelines and/or you can contact the store manager.

(2) Consider dabbling in cashier profiling. Personally, I look for happy and laid back looking cashiers.

(3) Make use of your time waiting in line and organize those coupons! Consider grouping together all of your free and Buy 1 Get 1 free product coupons as these typically require the cashier to manually enter the price of the item.

(4) Stack your coupons in the criss cross method demonstrated in the video as this should prevent coupons from sticking together… especially printable coupons. You may also want to consider handing over your coupons one at a time.

(5) Be respectful and patient! Kill em’ with kindness! 😉

So how about you? What are your tips for having a successful checkout experience? How do you feel empowered at the register?

What is the HIP List?

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply add the post to your HIP List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the HIP List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, you first must head on over here and register and log into your Hip2Save.com account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back later to, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account.

When logged into your account, you will then see your HIP List on every page.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, article, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. That will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include in your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you!

If there are deals that you are not interested in keeping on your list, just click on the minus button to remove it.
