Check out this email that I received from Hip2Save reader, Fran…


I was reading comments on the Rite Aid Gerber post where readers are talking about wasting money on bad or expired products. Why would anyone “waste” their money? Why wouldn’t they just return the bad or expired for a good product?

Some stores, like Acme and Bottom Dollar have a double money back guarantee. Acme has Fresh or Free – Guaranteed Twice. They will replace your product plus refund your money and Bottom Dollar does the same thing. The reason I’m telling you this is I think this would be a good post “What do you do when you purchase expired or bad products?”

I think this post will be very helpful to your readers. After all, HIP is about saving money, right?

So with that being said, what do you do when you get home and find that products you just purchased are expired or bad? Do you toss them? Do you return to the store and ask for a refund? Please share your thoughts with us!

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!
