DirecTV: FREE HBO Preview This Weekend (1/27-1/30)

UPDATE: When I originally wrote up this post, I had included the fact that Dish Network was also offering up a free HBO and Cinemax Preview this weekend. I then removed this info once I read through the comments left by Dish Network subscribers who stated that they could not access this free preview. However, reader, Becky just commented that Dish Network emailed that  this preview is indeed starting today on channels 300-309 for HBO and 310-314 for Cinemax.

If you’re a DirecTV  subscriber, you should be able to get in on a nice treat this weekend! Reader, Angie, recently emailed to let me know that DirectTV is offering a FREE preview of HBO this weekend. DirecTV subscribers can access HBO on Channels 501-511.

Also, several other carriers (Cox Communications, Verizon FIOS, etc.) may be offering this promotion as well, so you may want to call your local provider to see if they’re participating!

(Thanks, Angie!)

  • 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.
