Just a reminder to check out Zapiddy if you have an iPhone and/or iPad…

Zapiddy is a free iPhone app that pays users to answer questions. After downloading and registering the app, Zapiddy users (called Zappers) may accept Jobs — brief, easy surveys. Sometimes a photo is part of the Job. Usually these Jobs include surveys about retail store activity or conditions. As an example, yesterday, Zappers were asked to photograph some of the merchandise in stores related to the new movie “Monsters U.” The photos below were submitted by Zappers who will be paid $4 for their participation.

And today, Zappers are being asked to document the presence of a detergent pallet display at Sam’s Club like the one pictured below and to the left (note that one doesn’t need to be a Member to enter a Sam’s Club). And just about every weekend, Zappers are asked to report on some in-store sampling activity, like these events last weekend at a Fred Meyer’s in Washington (pictured below and to the right):

Keep in mind that Zapiddy Jobs are usually more plentiful on weekends, but there are jobs any day of the week.

Check out some of the comments from current Zapiddy users…

The jobs are super easy and only take a couple of minutes. The definite downside is a job can disappear while you are on your way. Recommend accepting jobs that are very close or somewhere you were already planning on going so you don’t get upset if it goes away. I have made $59.00 in the last couple of weeks with approx $50 pending. Max you can earn in a year is $570

I just joined – looks fun! One job already to get $1 for answering questions during The Voice. I’ll be watching it anyways, so I might as well make a buck :)

I love this app … In just a couple of weeks I have gotten around $30!

Note: Zapiddy is activating accounts on a first-come, first-served basis depending on the number of jobs available in a given area. The sooner you create an account, the sooner you’ll have access to the jobs near you.

  • 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.
