Over the past decade, Hip2Save has been able to post SO many awesome freebies and deals – thanks to all of our amazing readers who have passed many of them along to us! ❤
Did you know: Hip2Save has published over 150,000 posts over the past 10 years – that’s an average of 41 posts per day! 🎉
AND, since we’re celebrating Hip’s 10th birthday, we thought it’d be fun to recap some of our favorite freebies and deals over the years. From in-store deals to exciting sweepstakes and HOT freebies, we definitely had a hard time narrowing our faves down to just a few!
I can’t believe how young Piper and Ayden were 😢 — they were such good helpers and loved posing with my Walgreens loot! ❤ Time flies!
Oh the good ‘ol days of Kmart Double Deals! I remember scoring over $280 worth of products for just over $25 – including tax! 😱 I was super excited and walked out of Kmart with a huge smile I couldn’t seem to wipe off my face! I was one proud coupon lovin’ momma! 💃
Oh, and anyone else remember staying up super late for those *HOT* $75 off $100 and $50 off $100 Old Navy coupons found on the OldNavyWeekly.com site back in 2009?! Those were awesome! 😍
“I remember staying up late searching for those awesome Old Navy coupons – and the day I won a $50 off $100 purchase coupon, it felt like I had won the lottery! We were able to score such great deals with that coupon.”
From 54¢ Hair Clips at The Limited, to a FREE ProForce Cleaning Kit for Sam’s Club members, to the FREE candy at Rite Aid, FREE Fisher-Price car with free shipping, and a $9 Listerine money-maker at Walgreens, there were lots of fun deals in 2010!
“There was a moment when I was checking out at The Limited… digging in my purse for a couple quarters and a few pennies… and well, I felt a tad bit like Julia Roberts on Pretty Women. You know, when she goes in the high-end store and is asked to leave. But then I remembered, I am so PROUD of what I’m doing. I’m being smart with my money and if they can’t respect that, then they’re the ones that have issues– NOT me!”
Anyone remember the fun Wendy’s “Here’s the Beef” T-Shirt Contest? There were so many Hip2Save readers who won a free shirt, like this cute couple who were featured on a Happy Friday post!
“My husband and I both won these shirts back in 2011 and my hubby actually wore his the other day while working out (in 2018, y’all). I was like… where in the world did you dig that up from!?” – Mary
If you were a CVS shopper back in 2012, there was a smokin’ HOT deal you could score on a Craig 4GB MP3 Player! A reader had emailed to let me know that these MP3 Players that were listed in the weekly ad for $49.99 (reg. $79.99!) were ringing up for ONLY $9.99 and you’d get back a $10 CVS CashCard! Were any of you able to score this deal back in the day? If so, do you still use your MP3 player? 😂
“I remember being able to score this deal and that’s when I fell in love with CVS!” – Angie
This Timex/Earrings Target deal was such a FUN deal to find… I paid only $2.38 for BOTH items! 😮
Also, does anyone remember this *HOT* $25 off any $25 purchase + free shipping Piperlime deal back in 2013? The post has 1700 comments! WOW!
“I definitely was on a coupon HIGH after scoring this Timex Target deal!” – Collin
And we can’t forget about these awesome sweepstakes and giveaways! 🙌 Who remembers entering the awesome Biscoff Spread Giveaway? A lot of Hip2Save readers won… and I did, too — a whopping SEVEN jars of yumminess! 😋
Oh how we loved this Starbucks gift card promo back in 2014!
“I remember when this freebie showed up in the mail. It was so awesome and made my son’s day!”
Do you remember signing up for this FREE $25 off $25.01 NFLShop.com promo code with FREE shipping freebie?! Many Hip2Savers were able to get some sweet deals with this promotion!
And how can we forget the 35 FREE personalized holiday postcards with FREE shipping?!
Plus, a lot of us were able to score FREE personalized ProfilePro Shampoo and Conditioner. WooHoo for free hair care products! 💁
“I remember when my personalized shampoo and conditioner showed up in the mail and thinking how fun it would be to take on vacation!”
Where do we even START? With the tons of FREE Victoria’s Secret Reward Cards everyone scored without making a purchase? The HOT $10 off $10 purchase Yankee Candle coupon? This HOT Lands’ End Kids Backpack Deal? The FREE Chipotle Burrito text offer, and FREE Taylormade Golf Balls or Golf Clubs! Oh and let’s not forget about the HOT Apple iPad clearance finds some of you were able to score at Walmart! There were lots of awesome deals back in 2016!
“I remember ALL of my frugal friends sending in for DOZENS of those Victoria’s Secret Rewards Cards. Some of them scored HUGE, too!” – Jamie
Do you remember this high value $4/1 Bic Disposable razors coupon that made for better than FREE razors at Walmart!? Those high-value coupons are what keep me excited about couponing!
“High value coupons that result in better than free products give me such a coupon rush! It’s like cash is just printing from my printer!” – Amber
And what about this White House Black Market promo that scored us FREE jewelry?!
