Sent from reader, Kristen, who posted about her upcoming mission trip on the Hip2Save Facebook page previously:

I got home today and found a box sitting on my counter. I haven’t ordered anything, and so I didn’t know where it had come from. I opened it up and I found an envelope laying on top that said “coupons” and inside had a bunch of coupons I had listed I was looking for to trade. Underneath the envelope was all of this!!!

Nivea, toothpaste, toothbrushes… all for my mission trip! I was so excited and so touched that someone I didn’t even know would send that to me! Shipping alone costs a fortune! But, I had so many people email me with coupons, I didn’t know who this was as to address them by name (address label only had a last name). I just want to thank whoever this is – definitely a sweet, kind, person who I just want to send a big thank you to for making my day!! And I know the people who receive these bags I’m making will be even more excited than I am! Of course, I got the return address off the box to send a thank you note, but I just felt like sharing with others what this wonderful person has done for me! Thank you to all who helped out! I appreciate it more than you know!

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!
