“For it is in giving that we receive.”

Have I mentioned lately how lucky I am to have such amazing readers? Yesterday, I was extremely touched by the email I received…

Hi Collin,
I just wanted to thank you for posting the fabulous RA deal on the Bayer Monitor. I was able to get the deal this morning. I also have a cool manager who had no problem with the overage. 🙂

I consider myself VERY fortunate that no one in my family is currently battling Diabetes. So, in the spirit of giving that I think your site also inspires, I am mailing the one I got to one of your readers who doesn’t have a RA near her but needs the monitor for her 10 year old son. With two munchkins of my own, my heart goes out to her. I just can’t imagine…and pray I never have to.

I’m telling you this because I want you to know that what you do not only helps me save an absolute ton of money, it helps me pay it forward too. Thank you for that.

I think it’s pretty amazing how giving and incredibly loving we all can be… even to people we don’t know! Reading this email has inspired me and I hope it has inspired you, too. …And if you need even more inspiration, check out these 3 comments that were left on the Rite Aid Contour Meter post:

Commenter #1: I don’t have a rite aid near by and would desperately love one of these for my 10 yr old son! If anyone has an extra I could sure use it! I had a lady email and haven’t heard back so I’m not sure if she was able to get the deal! Thank you and God Bless You!

Commenter #2: Last night I told another poster that I would send her my meter if I found one… I didn’t write down her e-mail and now it’s gone. So… if you posted last night and I answered please post your e-mail again.

Commenter #3: I just sent her an e-mail offering mine. So now, she just needs to decide which one of us she wants to send it to her 🙂 Collin, whenever you see comments about greed, etc. from hateful posters, I hope you can see comments like this and think “Wow, here are two Hip2Savers fighting over who they can send their free monitor to! LOL!

Simply amazing!

  • HIP List
  • Print

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 move 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, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, 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. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
