    Many Congratulations.

    Yours was one of the sites I used when I was starting out before I decided to start my own site and I liked the natural flow and feel of your site.

    You deserve all that the partnership has to offer you – I wish you the best.

    I’m hoping this will lead to even more exciting deals in the future! Congratulations! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wow! I just checked out the Today Money page. You are right up there beside some really famous people! I’ll be able to say I remember when Collin was just starting out… Congratulations!!

    • Mrspurple

      Wow, very cool!!! Congratulations Collin!!! I am so happy for you!!!!
      I am definitely not a big fan of MSNBC/Today show (no offense to them), so I wasn’t that excited about this at first, but I was excited to see you on their page, lol! I think a lot of us are excited for you and proud of you, even though we haven’t really done much haha, but we have watched your site grow. I was also part of the ones following you on blogger, we were all upset for you when Blogger knocked your site, and were all excited when you unveiled your beautiful new site, with the worn out coupon logo etc.
      Congratulations awesome blogger!!!!

    I have to agree with the very few on here that are not thrilled about this. You have to do what you have to do to make money for yourself and your family, but I kind of feel like Hip2Save is a sell-out for agreeing to this merger. Just remember where you came from, and try to keep in mind that many of your readers depend on the amazing deals that you post to make ends meet.

    • Kelly

      I have to agree with this. I absolutely love your site, but the first thing I thought when I saw this was “Sellout”, especially when Collin’s conveniently holding up a Today Show mug for the entire video. I think the only reason Collin would agree to this is because it meant a lot of money for her. She bashes on Extreme Couponing all the time, saying those people are fake, but to me, this makes this website much more fake. I’ll keep coming for the deals, but my admiration for this website has definitely gone down.

        Thank you for agreeing with my post, Kelly. When I wrote it last night I thought that I would instantly be attacked by readers who disagree with my thoughts. It is nice to know that I am not the only one disappointed by this decision.

      • anonymous

        This. I am pretty upset about all of it. I usually check hip2save multiple times a day. Not anymore!

    • Amy

      I would do the same thing as Collin probably, but, as a longtime loyal follower of Hip2Save, I feel a bit sold out to a company I do not admire/trust. Kind of like the mom and pop grocery store down the street selling out to walmart. I am not happy about this for myself, but this is the land of opportunity after all, so I am glad to see Collin’s success.

      • Francoise

        When someone is passionate about what they do, they naturally want to reach as many people as possible. Partnering with the Today Show certainly facilitates that desire. I’ll always support that kind of drive.

        Especially in light of what I’ve been noticing on some other deal/frugal living blogs I follow: It seems that a lot of deals don’t get tested, are simply regurgitated in whole from other blogs, contain significant errors, or refer to printable coupons that, although may still be available, were long ago printed and redeemed by the reader.

        So while I watch other blogs wither, I’m witnessing Collin shooting for the moon. If that makes you want to turn away, I wish you luck in your search for another blog that compares in accuracy, personality, relevance, consistency, and accessibility.

        Congratulations Collin! I know YOU and your passion will never change, and I for one am immensely grateful to you for always being there on this journey.

        • Amy

          I never said I would stop following Collin’s blog at all!

  6. Beth

    Congrats on the new partnership. I’ll just have to remember to check your page more frequently now since you’ll have lots more people checking for those limited quantity deals ;0)

  7. Colette

    Who cares why or when! Congrats to a you young lady and modern day entrepreneur… What an accomplishment ๐Ÿ™‚ Through God all things are possible. Keep your chin up and morals high, if you BUILD it they will come! CONGRATS to Collin and her Team. Thank you for all your hard work…

  8. Janet

    Congratulations on your new “partnership” with TODAY. I have a sneaking feeling that you are destined for great things – this little ol’ website is just the beginning. Just keep that spunky optimistic attitude and enjoy your success! I have enjoyed saving lots of $$$ with you! ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Andrea

    Ok seriously, when I get up in the morning and get to the computer, I pull up my e-mail, hip2save and the Today show website. The three of them stay up nearly all day and are checked repeatedly, what an awesome partnership. I’m so excited for you! Congratulations!

  10. Laura

    Congratulations! Very exciting, Please let us know if you are going to be on the Today show so we can tune in and watch!

  11. Cindy

    very excited for you – but have to agree with others the more you grow the harder it is to get the deals – (not just your site – but so many couponing deal blogs post the same deals) it is to the point that you can’t even find sale/coupon items in the stores.

  12. tambry

    Does this mean you will be doing a guest spot soon?

  13. Pilar

    Good luck to you. You’ve helped us all so much. I am not interested in the Today show or their POV and somewhat surprised by this choice. But choice it is and I am proud of you getting the attention you deserve! I have noticed, over the last few weeks, how long your site takes to load, vs. the “old days”. I guess it’s related to all the ads and affiliations…good for you! Thanks for all you do.

  14. SK

    Congrats Collin! You work so hard and are so deserving of this. With our economy, I think it’s great that more people will be exposed to great deals!

  15. Bargain Babe

    Congrats Colin! You are an amazing deal finder and a natural on camera so I know you’ll do so well in this partnership!

    Did you get a new camera! The video picture is so crystal clear!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Congrats Collin and thanks for staying true to your site.

  17. Christie

    Congratulations, Collin! I hope this brings great things for you and all of your hard work. You deserve it! ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. kidsallgone

    Hey Collin!!
    Sending you a million congrats!!
    But if you get an invite to be on TV, see if there is a coupon for a seamstress to take care of those worn-out knees on your pretty white pants! LOL! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Collin


  19. Tricia

    Congrats! Today is one of my favorite shows. I am glad to see your success. I do worry about the amount of people who will be after the deals you post though. They are already hard to get, and now it will be harder. Not to mention, we seen the changes made after Extreme Couponing aired. I think this may be the same. The more people getting a deal, the more the companies will think about offering them.

  20. Susan V.

    I think it’s GREAT!! CONGRATULATIONS!!

  21. Lisa

    Is the mobile version of the site gone because of this new toolbar?

    • Collin

      Nope… we are working on getting it fixed. Thanks for your patience! ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. nicole a.

    Congrats to you and your family! I am excited for you!

  23. R.A

    Wow,I’m so happy for u and excited same as others!!!
    my morning don’t start without watching TODAY show…

  24. anonymous

    I am incredibly disappointed. I guess mainly because I know this site is going to get so much bigger and there will be no chance to win anything or to get in on any of the deals. Look at krazycouponlady That was such a good site until they got caught up in the fame and the money… I just fear that Collin will do the same thing. In a way I am happy for her, but on the other hand I just feel like the site just got cheapened.

    • Liz

      I feel the same ๐Ÿ™

  25. karen

    I see on the site they are having a chat with you on sept 7th at 1pm. I’ll be at work but hopefully will be able to view it on this site or youtube etc.

  26. Christine B.

    Hi Collin,
    I have followed you for years now and while I have told people about your site I still considered you my “little secret”. Congratulations on the new venture, but I am jealous that I will now have to share you with others.

  27. Carlita

    I am sooo sooo happy for you.. Congrats, now someone can show people the proper way to couponing.

  28. Angie boschee

    Have followed for what seems like forever. Congrats on the BIG news.

  29. Angie D.

    Wow – I’m really excited that your awesome blog has been recognized! It is (and will remain) the first website I check every morning. Kudos to you, Collin!!!

  30. muser

    Between this corporate sponsorship and the corporate ads on the sidebar, it makes me wonder if you ever have to coupon again! Not that I’m judging…all the time you spend in putting updating this website seems like a full time job, and I’ve always wondered how you do that plus the actual couponing/shopping.
