Hip2Save This Holiday Guest Post submitted by reader, Cheryl:

We are probably a family that is more needy than usual when we eat out. Our servers typically have to come back more than once because of water spilling or having to give us extra forks (which were dropped twice or thrice) before our food has come out. We definitely have extra requests during our dinners out because we have toddlers.

This Christmas, we wanted to do something extra for those extra moments the restaurant staff gave us. We have gotten numerous Target Gift Cards from the deals we have scored, thanks to deals you have posted. Since most of the deals we scored were awesome already, we decided to pool these gift cards and create little “tip gift” which we give the servers when we eat out!

As soon as we get the bill, we place the little “tip gift” inside the bill folder (on top of the typical tip we give them of course!) with a note of thank you, and we watch how our servers (who are often more exhausted than usual during a busy day!) light up seeing a little something for them when they come to clear our tables. It is so simple and yet we walk away feeling more blessed having had a chance to say thank you to the wait staff who make families have mealtime relief!

  • 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.
