Sent from reader, Emily:

I am a stay at home mom with 4 kids, ages 11, 8, 7, and 2. In order to try to do something for each of them that is just for them, and to give them something that will last and help them look back at treasured memories, I began making a Shutterfly photo book for each of them for each year.

I have always used free book codes. I got the codes from times when Shutterfly offered free books, but also from joining various reward programs, such as Coke Rewards, Kellogg’s Rewards, Bing Rewards, Mom365, ShopYourWay, and Pampers Rewards. And by watching your posts about these, I was blessed to get several codes from other Hip2Savers. In total, I’ve made 27 books so far for my kids. Each book starts at $30 without extra pages (which I always have), but I’ve probably never paid over about $10-$12 (most of which is shipping).

I wanted to thank you for making me aware of these programs so that I, and my kids, could benefit from them. I also wanted to thank those people who give their unwanted codes so others can benefit. They have had a big impact for me! By the way, these books are awesome! I hope my kids will treasure them and appreciate them throughout their lives.

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!
