    Hmmm, some new style of naming the posts. I love your site and i am a regular reader, but i am not a fan of these new titles….

    • Nb

      I was thinking the same thing. It throws me off this way

      • Ashley

        Yes!!!!!! So glad someone else mentioned this! I must say I have been wondering about these new “advertisement-like” blog post titles that have been popping up on hip2save. I have been a reader for many years and it’s just not the “voice” I’m used to! I’m wondering what the reason for this new style is?! I have gotten used to the old way and must say I liked the more factual and straightforward post titles. Don’t get me wrong – I love what Collin and the team do and will continue to read! It’s just throwing me off, and it makes me feel like my old “friend” has become someone new!!

        • misti

          Does she get paid more if we click on the link or something?

          • Barb

            Yes, H2S gets paid every time you click a link, how in the world do you think she pays her staff and herself? Her blog has become very very lucrative, that’s why its #1 as far as I’m concerned! She’s worked hard to get it here, but she doesn’t do it for free – why should she, it’s job like anyones job! I have no problem with the titles.

            • misti

              Well why else you think i asked i clearly didn’t know. I didn’t think she did it for free tho.

            • Meredith

              But if the goal on here is to save us money, I feel like things are changing to more of a click for pay, money making endeavor. I have NO problem with Collin and crew making money off of this website, but please post something about the new format of this website, what it means when we click and whether or not this is a really good “deal” versus an advertisement. Also clarify if it is okay for people to post their own affiliate links as there seems to be a lot of confusion as far as that goes. I truly appreciate the time and money I have saved here in the past. Thank You.

            • mary

              You are wrong and who cares people I love this site I hope they do make a ton of money. They save me a ton and should get paid for what they do. Why does everything have to be a issue. Click don’t click who cares how the title reads if it says free anything im sure your going to click. 🙂

            • Brittany

              Some of us don’t know how she makes money – that doesn’t mean we think she shouldn’t, it just means we don’t posses the knowledge of how it works. And personally, I’ve never seen a post where she’s explained it – only other readers giving their thoughts about it.

        • Brandy

          I feel much better seeing that other readers feel the same!! I’ve been reading H2S for a long time and the new titles are just not for me. I loved the straightforward titles much better. But of course I will continue to read and click! Thanks for all you do Collin and team!!! ❤️

      • CO Mama

        Yes, love the old straight forward titles, new ones seem gimmicky and not true H2S style. Just my opinion. So grateful for all your hard work & time you put into this site!

    • Kelly

      I agree! Not a fan of the new style of naming things. Before it was straight forward and I knew exactly what the post was about. Now it’s just confusing.

    • Amy

      Not to take away from this site at all. I follow this site and one called Together these two websites save me HUGE. I don’t do the Target thing its too much work. the Kroger thing is super easy. Even if a super sale item is out of stock they will write a raincheck with sale price super awesome! Hip2save I use for everything else. Amazon, CVS, Walgreens, etc…. Thanks Hip2save for everything.

      • Cathy B

        Thanks for the website information Amy!😀

  2. kay

    It gets you to click on it tho😉

    • rosie

      Yes, but i feel tricked and it is not a nice feeling…

  3. debern

    I just would have liked the Kroger brand name somewhere in the post to know that it’s a Kroger game. I usually win at least once with these games, usually more than once, so I try to look for them. I don’t go for junk food but there was some other foods in the pic so I clicked. I totally get the marketing and paying for the posts.

  4. J Canvek

    Agreed! The new titles feel like an advertisement and a trick to up clicks.

  5. katie

    I feel the same way about click bait titles. I figured this was an instant win, but any other click bait-ish titles, I avoid clicking just because I can’t stand click bait. I really hope they just go back to the straightforward titles.

    • Jennie


  6. Carrie

    Anyone win yet?

    • Heather

      I didn’t win today. I usually win a few times with the Kroger instant win games. Hope to win Almondmilk!

    • Sandra

      I just won the can of decorating frosting on my first try. I never won on their past games. Nice way to start my day.

  7. dee

    I agree–one of the reasons we follow hip2save is that we trust the info and the deals. I appreciate all the effort but also do not like the gimmicky new feel…it is very misleading.

  8. Bryn (Sister Sidekick)

    Wow! This post generated quite the discussion! 🙂

    Just to give you a little background – I have been working with Collin since 2009 and have spent years helping to write up posts, research deals etc. I was actually the author of this post and was trying to come up with a fun title – something a bit different and catchy and spunky. My intention was never to trick anyone or to get you to click on a certain link (truth be told – we make no money with this post; it is simply posted for you since it is a great instant win game for all you Kroger shoppers!).

    As far as the new/different titles, we decided as a team to try out some new ways to title posts. Since we write up as many as 60 different posts daily, the titles can get a bit boring and stale. So we wanted to challenge ourselves to come up with new ways to title the post. It is clear that some of you are not fond of these new titles so we will definitely keep your feedback in mind.

    All of us on the Hip2Save team love the community here and the fact that readers are honest and open about how they feel. Thanks to all of you who took the time to comment and leave your thoughts.

    • Tiffany

      Appreciate your work and creativity! I think they’re fun!

    • Lisha

      Thanks for taking additional time out of your schedule to address this issue. I thank you, Collin and the rest of the team for all that you do, to ensure that I am able to save.

      The new format doesn’t really phase me.

      I have noticed that you and another Team Member have been commenting more. I figured Collin may be overdue for a break, phasing back and delegating more or possibly in family way:-)I know the anniversary of your grandmother (Ma) is approaching and I thought perhaps Vollin is in a melancholy mood.

      I would like you and your fam to remember all the wonderful memories you have of that strong matriarch that has transitioned as well as the impact she had on you. Stay blessed!

    • Sarakate25

      You are awesome keep up the amazing work. I’ve noticed more crappy & rude comments lately!! Wow really if you don’t like it don’t hang out and read it!!

    • Brittany

      Lol, I guess after doing it for so long it would get boring to always do the same titles and posts!

  9. Tiffany

    Wow that’s a lot of complaints! Haha
    I’ve followed the blog for quite awhile and have no problem with the changes! Any time I feel leary of a link I choose not to click on it but go thru my browser…there are other options!
    That said I didn’t win anything today. 🙁 but thanks for sharing!

  10. Elvira

    Just looked through the post titles and I think that the exclamation points are throwing people off. I personally thought this was a couponing post but turned out to be a game which isn’t a guaranteed win for everyone. But this is still my go to site for deals and couponing info.

  11. Kristy

    You Guys are a bunch of cry babies. Lol. Don’t bother commenting on my post I don’t read them😉

    • missy

      Since when does voicing an opinion make one a crybaby? I guess you’re one too since you took the time to reply! And secretly you know you’ll come back to see if someone replied:)

  12. Amy

    …in other news I won Jif Natural Peanut Butter. Woohoo!

    • Brittany

      Nice! … Just curious, when you win is it a coupon linked to your card like the Friday freebies?

      No win here, but I will try again!

      • Amy

        Yes it is a coupon linked to your card. Under where it says what you won there is a button to click to load to card.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Yay! Congrats! 😉

  14. Amy

    I won Pepperidge Farm cookies!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)


  15. Krystal

    I just won free popcicles,good thing as this is on my grocery list this week!!! so double win.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)


  16. Tara

    How would we go to the link directly? I would like to do it every day but on my phone is hard to keep track of the post 🙂

    • MelMandy

      I have the same issue and so I just add the link to my phone’s main screen. On my phone, when you are in the game screen you can push the 3 dots button at the top right of the screen and select add to homepage and it adds a icon that I use to go to the game everyday

    • J

      I typically save to my reminders via the little box/arrow at the top, then can open to a browser in Safari and just visit it that way daily. Hth:)

    • pandoraaddict

      Bookmark/favorite the direct link.

      • Tara

        Thank you every one for the tips on how to save!!

  17. Mel

    Yum! I won Pepperidge Farm cookies! I had noticed the titles too and wasn’t fond of them but I figured they just wanted to change it up a little. Thanks Bryn for taking the readers’ opinions to heart and responding! You all are an awesome team!!

  18. Amy

    I posted some thing over an hour ago and have no idea why it never showed up. This site is great. wonderful. I like to pair this site with Kroger Krazy .com I get awesome deals every week. Kroger will also issue rainchecks on sale items. like I said hip2save is great but if u are looking for Kroger deals try the other site. once again hip2save is great.

  19. Jo
