So if you have been following Hip2Save since August, you may have gotten or will be getting a nice mailbox surprise this week! Yep, there I am above looking very HIP, showing off the freebies that I received from the FREE Sun Care Kit offer I posted back on August 28th. It never ceases to amaze me how many freebies show up on my doorstep that I’ve long forgotten about it.

What about you? Any great mailbox surprises?! :D

    I know I won’t get 1 – they emailed me awhile ago to let me know they had run out

  • Becky says:

    I received mine and had totally forgotten about it until it came!

  • Stacey says:

    I received mine…thanks for all the great tips on getting freebies!

  • Marcella says:

    UPS brought me a rolled up pkg from Realtime Media. Apparently I entered the Rock Your Shine Sweepstakes and Instant win and won a full size bottle of Garnier Sleek & shine 5 in 1 serum spray.

  • Barb says:

    i got mine last week.

  • Melissa says:

    I got mine yestrerday! Thank You!

  • Terra says:

    Got mine a couple days ago, my kids thought the hat was hilarious!!

  • C says:

    i got my free zulily planner in the mail today. it is so pretty. i love getting a surprise when i get my mail :)

  • stacy says:

    My husband told me last week “Don’t open ANY boxes that come in the mail” I am trying to be a sweet wife and not ruin any presents he has coming in the mail. So when a box showed up a few days ago, I picked it up (without looking at the name or sender) and put it on the bed, face down! When he came home I proudly told him that I didn’t look at OR shake it! He looked at it, and said, ” I didn’t buy this!” HAHAHAHA it was my sun care kit!!! So funny! ….. In other news, a new box showed up today…. Oh the lack of fun it was just to pick it up and not be curious!!! =)

  • Sandra says:

    I got mine yesterday as well! Cool!!!

  • Diane says:

    I always forget about samples until they arrive in the mail. Everyday is like Christmas to me! I don’t remember if I ordered the sun kit or not, so we’ll see! Today I just got a sample of the gigabytes candy that was ordered months ago, and yesterday a sample of aveeno shampoo and conditioner. Slow week so far for me! We do gets tons of magazines though, most of them free! :)

  • AndreaS says:

    I signed up and it said I qualified, but then weeks later I got an email from them saying the response was too big and I would not be receiving my bundle.

  • rk says:

    For those of you who didnt get it, dont feel bad. Aside from getting something free, its pretty lame. What do you do with all the stuff like this that shows up at your house? The chapstick and sunscreen can be used but the hat and bag are pretty much garbage…

    • Rebecca says:

      If you don’t want them, donation is a generous way to help others and not waste one person’s trash which could be someone else’s treasure. I’m sure the hat and bag wouldn’t be trash to a homeless person or someone in a 3rd world country.

  • Jamie says:

    My brother LOVED the hat LOL! I am glad someone could use it because it is…. interesting. Loved this freebie.

  • Angela says:

    I got one last week too.

  • Emily says:

    I just received a huge box of goodies and coupons from Kashi saying I won their sweepstakes/contest, which I didn’t even remember entering!! lol it has about 7 boxes of cereal in it and some really high value coupons!! Thanks so much Hip2Save, you’ve saved me tons!

  • Hatice K. says:

    I got mine last week, thank you :)

  • nicole says:

    Thanks i got mine.I didnt know what it was before i opened it.My 8 yo daughter was so excited.

  • Leisa says:

    Ha I got one too! So forgot about it! I put the hat and backpack on dancing for the kids! Lol

  • jennifer says:

    I never received mine so I contacted the company and was told they sold out before I signed up. If they were sold out why didn’t they tell us then? I never received and email stating I wasn’t getting it either. That is bad business and false advertising. I think these companies sometimes try to get your information without having to give anything in return. What a disappointment!!!

  • Catherine says:

    I got one! I had forgotten that I had even signed up for one!

  • angel says:

    I got it last weekend. I had forgotten that I had signed up too.

  • snowknott says:

    that is right!!! i forgot all about it since i signed it but not yet receive it! hopefully SOON?!

  • Katie Joy says:

    I got mine! Can I just say…helloooo White Elephant Gift?! Ha!

  • Judi says:

    I received an e-mail in august telling me I won. But never received it. So I figured it was a lie. But maybe I did win. Now I am sooo excited to see if I really get one :-)))

  • melanie says:

    Oh my gosh you are so cute Collin, I also love your door frames. I’m doing my home at the moment (baseboards/trim) and I couldn’t help notice your door frames/baseboards. I saw your video of your home a while back, but wow, it sure has alot of character. Love it, now I need to go back and re-watch your home videa , I’m just not very creative with space.

  • Monique Hanson says:

    I did get this several months ago. :) Hubby & I think the hat is just a riot!!!!

  • Autumn says:

    I got my box and had completely forgotten about this freebie! This hat will be great for when I go for walks to keep the hot sun off of my neck and ears, and the sac is great for carrying a few things on my trek…I think it will come in handy! love it!

  • Johnnie says:

    I got mine the other day too. Forgot all about it like all the other samples I receive. I’ll donate the hat to goodwill and keep my eye out for some hobo wearing it someday…lol!!

  • Shelley says:

    Yup, got mine too! Thanks so much for all the good tips!

  • Jeanine says:

    I have got some nice samples, but it seems they are starting to get fewer and fewer. With so many people hopping on it the offers, they are out before I get a chance so I have kind of stopped following for awhile. Been busy doing other things.

  • Nancy Cook says:

    Was very sad that I didn’t get my Suncare Kit like everyone else had received. Then to my surprise yesterday I received mine… Yippie!!! Love it…

  • Ger says:

    Received mine today, yay! The hat rocks!
