There’s a new face around here…

If you’ve been following Hip2Save recently, you may have noticed a bit more of a male presence, whether it’s the more burly looking hands in product photos or pictures of some dude chomping down on a burger. Well, that’s me! My name is Stetson Hunter, and I’m Collin’s brother-in-law. Given that association, you can probably guess how I got myself into this situation.

I’m the newest deal tester at Hip2Save, so my job consists of taking product photos, testing deal scenarios, and scoping out hot new bargains while I’m in the store. I’m also pretty handy with videography, so my position also has a big focus on bringing y’all more video content. Even though I have some strong suits in this position, let me just say that I am by no means a deal shopper, nor would I say I’m good at saving money. But my persistent sister-in-law (a.k.a. Collin) talked me into giving this whole “deal shopping” thing a try. 😬

You can watch me in action below…

(If you can’t see the video, watch here. Also, if you’re confused about the Burger King deal in the video, be sure read this post.)

I’m not going to lie. At first, I thought this job would be easy — boy, was I wrong. My co-workers (of which a majority are women) are constantly sending me all over the place to find every sort of product on the market. I’m walking into Target, Kohl’s, Bed Bath & Beyond, Ulta… ULTA, PEOPLE! I do not belong in that store at all, especially when I’m asked to take pictures with a product called “NO-MO BUSH”. 😳Just as concerning, I never thought I’d see the day that I’d be in a beauty aisle fighting over the last tube of Lip Smackers or YES TO face masks.

Look, I’ll be honest — I have NO idea what I am doing out here. Ideally, I would just walk into a store, grab the one item I went in for, and book it outta there when I’m done. But nooooope! It doesn’t work that way with Collin. She and the rest of the team remind me regularly that in every store I go to, there is usually a deal to be found. So it’s a hard knock life for me as I spend my day trekking through aisles in search of the next hot deal.

Some days, I’m covering my ears to fight through the cries coming from the children’s toy section where kids are sobbing over their denial of the latest Lego set. Other days, I’m suffering defeat from the self-proclaimed beauty guru who snatched up the last makeup palette, when all I needed was to take a single picture of it. Every day, I’m constantly being reminded to wear my Santa glove in pictures to keep things festive. And then it’s usually at the end of each day when I’m asked to drive all the way back across town to check in on the latest deal discovery. 🙄

But, please forgive my banter as this job has been extremely entertaining so far. It’s only the beginning and I’m sure as I continue to learn, I’ll get the hang of it one of these days. Until then, I’ve got my camera in hand, so I’ll be keeping you all updated with my day-to-day life as a Hip2Save deal tester.

Now, who’s meeting me at Applebee’s for a drink?!

    HYSTERICAL! This site FASCINATES me to begin with. I absolutely LOVE to SHOP. I thoroughly enjoy all the “banter” and appreciate the HARD WORK. I think STETSON … love the name … will do a fine job and just might ascertain information more readily by being his fun-loving self. Have FUN with this very important job that so many of us truly depend on and look forward to visiting on a daily basis. You are really going to gain valuable experience plus knowledge in a field that we all ADORE —- THE ART OF THE DEAL!

    Welcome, Stetson ( love the name!). You’ll be a fun addition to a great coupon site!
    But, one question…
    What kind of glove will you use once the Christmas season is over? 💙

    • Stetson

      Haha well thank you! 😅

      I’m not sure in the glove part- I’m sure these ladies will find something – LOL! Who knows I might be wearing a full costume when it’s all said and done. 😬

    Welcome Stetson! I can’t wait to see more of your posts and videos!

  10. Kristina

    I have to give it to Collin’s sister, she found one cute dude. I am all about some eye candy while I scroll for deals. I have bee with hip2save for over 6 years now and I definitely agree that male participants are welcome. And I am all for Stetson trying out some female products for some comic relief. Welcome Stetson! The ladies are going to love you!

  11. Sharon

    I am already immensely entertained with this intro post! Looking forward to many more! Will be fun to see a little muscle get in there and get the deals! lol

  12. Tammy

  19. dropofrain

    Welcome to the team, Stetson! I think I recognize the place! Are you in Reno too? Will be watching out for a dude with a red glove taking pictures in the sale isles!

  20. Jess

    Total hottie!

  21. mel

    Welcome Stetson! I gotta admit.. I was like HUH? What in the heck can a guy bring to this site?? And passed this post several times.. then decided to read it. Glad I did! I was cracking up, so I can see you will fit right in with the Hip team on posting some awesome deals!!

  22. Bonnie

    Welcome to Hip2Save Stetson. This is really going to be interesting & a bit funny too I’m sure. I’ll be watching for your deals with that red gloved hand. Good luck & have fun.

  23. Kickstarter

    He’s so cute. Well, I’m sure ur hubby, and all the husband’s of the staff have had their fill of being guinea pigs. Stetson welcome! U r helping keep women in a business that is not abusing them. Just think, if u help bring in more male Hipsters, u r helping pay for braces for the younger! For real, we never know what will be the future for military and their families. If Collin and crew can bring in income, that is a gigantic blessing! Plus u will have free razors and socks from the deals!

  24. jadenboudle

    Welcome Stetson! Loved your video, you are such a trooper cringing your way through that bra aisle and fighting the beauty gurus in ULTA for your packet of No Mo Bush (dying laughing right meow)! Glad that you’re here to add some humor and a guys’ perspective to Hip2Save 🙂
