Sent from reader, Kristen, who posted about her upcoming mission trip on the Hip2Save Facebook page previously:

I got home today and found a box sitting on my counter. I haven’t ordered anything, and so I didn’t know where it had come from. I opened it up and I found an envelope laying on top that said “coupons” and inside had a bunch of coupons I had listed I was looking for to trade. Underneath the envelope was all of this!!!

Nivea, toothpaste, toothbrushes… all for my mission trip! I was so excited and so touched that someone I didn’t even know would send that to me! Shipping alone costs a fortune! But, I had so many people email me with coupons, I didn’t know who this was as to address them by name (address label only had a last name). I just want to thank whoever this is – definitely a sweet, kind, person who I just want to send a big thank you to for making my day!! And I know the people who receive these bags I’m making will be even more excited than I am! Of course, I got the return address off the box to send a thank you note, but I just felt like sharing with others what this wonderful person has done for me! Thank you to all who helped out! I appreciate it more than you know!

  • 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.
