Just a reminder to check out Zapiddy if you have an iPhone and/or iPad…

Zapiddy is a free iPhone app that pays users to answer questions. After downloading and registering the app, Zapiddy users (called Zappers) may accept Jobs — brief, easy surveys. Sometimes a photo is part of the Job. Usually these Jobs include surveys about retail store activity or conditions. As an example, yesterday, Zappers were asked to photograph some of the merchandise in stores related to the new movie “Monsters U.” The photos below were submitted by Zappers who will be paid $4 for their participation.

And today, Zappers are being asked to document the presence of a detergent pallet display at Sam’s Club like the one pictured below and to the left (note that one doesn’t need to be a Member to enter a Sam’s Club). And just about every weekend, Zappers are asked to report on some in-store sampling activity, like these events last weekend at a Fred Meyer’s in Washington (pictured below and to the right):

Keep in mind that Zapiddy Jobs are usually more plentiful on weekends, but there are jobs any day of the week.

Check out some of the comments from current Zapiddy users…

The jobs are super easy and only take a couple of minutes. The definite downside is a job can disappear while you are on your way. Recommend accepting jobs that are very close or somewhere you were already planning on going so you don’t get upset if it goes away. I have made $59.00 in the last couple of weeks with approx $50 pending. Max you can earn in a year is $570

I just joined – looks fun! One job already to get $1 for answering questions during The Voice. I’ll be watching it anyways, so I might as well make a buck :)

I love this app … In just a couple of weeks I have gotten around $30!

Note: Zapiddy is activating accounts on a first-come, first-served basis depending on the number of jobs available in a given area. The sooner you create an account, the sooner you’ll have access to the jobs near you.

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!
