Hip2Save This Holiday Guest Post submitted by reader, Cheryl:

We are probably a family that is more needy than usual when we eat out. Our servers typically have to come back more than once because of water spilling or having to give us extra forks (which were dropped twice or thrice) before our food has come out. We definitely have extra requests during our dinners out because we have toddlers.

This Christmas, we wanted to do something extra for those extra moments the restaurant staff gave us. We have gotten numerous Target Gift Cards from the deals we have scored, thanks to deals you have posted. Since most of the deals we scored were awesome already, we decided to pool these gift cards and create little “tip gift” which we give the servers when we eat out!

As soon as we get the bill, we place the little “tip gift” inside the bill folder (on top of the typical tip we give them of course!) with a note of thank you, and we watch how our servers (who are often more exhausted than usual during a busy day!) light up seeing a little something for them when they come to clear our tables. It is so simple and yet we walk away feeling more blessed having had a chance to say thank you to the wait staff who make families have mealtime relief!

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 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.


Now, just print your customized HIP list whenever you're ready to go shopping and snag some "Hip" deals!
