As I mentioned last week here, recently announced that existing Prime members will now pay $99 per year on their annual renewal date and Amazon Student members will pay $49. However, if you have to join Prime (or you’ve been debating about whether to join), now is the time to do so! For the next 4 days only, new Prime Members can start a 30-day FREE Trial of Amazon Prime and lock in at the $79 price for the first year of membership (a $20 savings).

When you enroll in the free trial of Amazon Prime, you’ll have access to the benefits of FREE two-day shipping (my favorite feature! 😀 ), unlimited Prime Instant Video, and access to the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library. Note that you won’t be charged for your free trial, BUT you will be automatically upgraded to a paid membership plan (at the locked in rate of $79 for the first year) at the end of the trial period. To cancel your Amazon Prime Trial, you will just need to go to to Manage Your Prime Membership and click “Do not continue”.

  • 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.
