What a year it’s been!
As we wrap up 2018, we’re taking a moment to reflect on the last 12 months.
This year, we’ve had almost 188 million views on the site, over 30k posts, and generated almost 80k comments. We were the busiest on November 23rd (hello, Black Friday!) with over 1.3 million page views!
We’re so happy you (our Hip2Save community) have been so engaged during 2018! We thought you might enjoy our highlights of this year.

Back in March of 2018, ToysRUs announced shocking news that all stores in the U.S., including BabiesRUs locations would be closing. Sadly, over 30,000 people lost their jobs. You can read more about this here.
Build-A-Bear Workshop hosted a Pay Your Age Day in which Build-A-Bear Bonus Club Members could score any Furry Friend for the price of just their kiddos age (minimum $1). This promotion was so popular that Build-A-Bear was forced to close the lines in ALL U.S. Stores due to crowd and safety concerns. However, they did come up with an awesome way to make good on their promo!
