BIG news for all you Safeway and Albertsons shoppers! Yesterday afternoon, Safeway and Albertsons announced a definitive merger agreement which will result in a network that includes over 2,400 stores (no store closures are expected as a result of this transaction). According to the Press Release, here is what customers can expect…

The Merger will enable Albertsons and Safeway to implement operational best practices in order to offer customers an enhanced shopping experience and more competitive prices. Realizing substantial cost savings will allow for investments that are expected to benefit customers, including price reductions as well as store remodels and refurbishments. The diversified network will allow for a broader assortment of products, enhanced fresh and perishable offerings, and expanded private label alternatives for customers.

What are your thoughts on this merger? Do you think it will be positive for customers and do you think it will impact couponers?

(Thanks, Alissa & Deanna!)

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 Hip2Save.com 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.
