Sent from reader, Emily:

I am a stay at home mom with 4 kids, ages 11, 8, 7, and 2. In order to try to do something for each of them that is just for them, and to give them something that will last and help them look back at treasured memories, I began making a Shutterfly photo book for each of them for each year.

I have always used free book codes. I got the codes from times when Shutterfly offered free books, but also from joining various reward programs, such as Coke Rewards, Kellogg’s Rewards, Bing Rewards, Mom365, ShopYourWay, and Pampers Rewards. And by watching your posts about these, I was blessed to get several codes from other Hip2Savers. In total, I’ve made 27 books so far for my kids. Each book starts at $30 without extra pages (which I always have), but I’ve probably never paid over about $10-$12 (most of which is shipping).

I wanted to thank you for making me aware of these programs so that I, and my kids, could benefit from them. I also wanted to thank those people who give their unwanted codes so others can benefit. They have had a big impact for me! By the way, these books are awesome! I hope my kids will treasure them and appreciate them throughout their lives.

  • 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.
