UPDATE: You may want to call your local Costco ahead of time as it appears from reading the comments that this offer isn’t available at all Costco Wholesale Clubs.  😦

Calling all you wonderful Military Personnel! In addition the FREE membership that you can score at Sam’s Club during the government shutdown, I just found out that you can also head on over to your local COSTCO Wholesale Club to shop (No Membership Needed!) during government shutdown as well. Just be sure to bring in a valid Military I.D card. Read more here.

“COSTCO welcomes military ID card holders. Due to the government shutdown and closing of the commissaries, COSTCO will allow military ID card holders to shop at their stores — even if they are not members already.”

(Thanks, Sue!)

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!
