Introducing Stetson, Hip2Save’s Newest 27-Year-Old Deal Tester

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?!

    Ummmm…..this should be fun!
    I can’t wait to see what Stetson has in store. My husband would pay double to not use a coupon. And triple if he didn’t have to wait in line!

    • jenng

      My bf is the same way…drives me up the wall! I’ve phrased the question every possible way & the answer is always the same, “yes, I’d rather pay more than use a coupon.” Doesn’t matter if it saves $.50 or $5!

      • Stetson

  44. Mel

    Welcome Stetson! Great video and hilarious post 😁 Nice recruiting Collin!

  45. vanise

    You are doing great!!Keep up the good work.

  46. katycouponers

    Perhaps next time you are at Applebee’s for the the Jolly Rancher vodka drinks you can ask for the vodka hold the Jolly Rancher and you would be more than willing to pay the same price. That is what a true deal seeker would do 😀

  47. Meghan

    Hilarious, entertaining read! I see the humor is a family thing! 🙂

  48. michelle

    Welcome!! Thank you for everything you do!!

  50. Michele

    Your video is great!! I have to admit though that I had to go back and read the post about the penny Whopper. While watching the video I just could not figure out why you went to McDonalds to get a Whopper. Lol 😂
