Hipiti – Simplify Your Shopping (+ Giveaway!)


For two years now, I’ve tried to complete a 90-Day No Shopping Challenge at the first of the year. I’ve failed both times. (I made it 8 and 9 weeks, though. Doesn’t that count for ANYTHING?)

The first thing I do when gearing up for the challenge is unsubscribe from every single retail/flash sale email distribution list possible. You’d be surprised how much less temptation you feel when you don’t wake up to 89,000 sale emails in your inbox every morning. It’s refreshing, quite actually.

But here’s the deal. There are a few stores that I want to keep around – you know, my tried and true favorites. Wouldn’t it be fab if you could learn about all of your favorite retailer promotions in one place (or email)?

Enter Hipiti. Hipiti is all about reducing retail clutter in your inbox, as well as making shopping for sales at your favorite retailers easier and faster. Hipiti is completely customizable, so you only get the offers you want, as frequently as you want them. In addition, Hipiti’s innovative technology makes searching for discounts (online or using your smartphone) simple and quick.

Take a look for yourself! Here’s my dashboard.

At the moment, I’m following 7 stores, and I can control exactly what kind of information I see from each one.  Hipiti has awesome filtering capabilities on the email and dashboard – this way you will only get emails on the type of offer you’re most interested in. (For example, only offers that start today or end today; only offers with a promo code, etc.)

I am loving this website hard right now – one email in my inbox a day, and a great user dashboard. Because let’s face it, people. I’m never going to completely cut out clothing shopping. Nope, no can do. However! I can focus on the exact retailers I want, and cut out the rest of the fluff.

Soooo, Hipiti is in private beta right now, but you can start using it via this link. Try it out – I think you might like it. Also, because the co-founders Rama and Kristin rock the casbah, they are offering one lucky commenter a $50 gift certificate to your favorite shopping destination! Yep, wherever your heart desires. How cool is that? Just leave a comment on this post by Friday, July 13th (spooky) at 6pm PST, and you’ll be entered to win. Good luck!

  15. Great idea! I unsubscribe from everything about once a year too, and yet a couple of months later I’m somehow back where I started with a full inbox…

  16. Samantha says:

    Great website idea! It really does get annoying to receive so many shopping site emails a day, some of them multiple times.
    Hope to win!

  17. Love is idea…just what I need as I too do not like 89,000 emails

  18. Cool link, thanks so much! I’m going to try it because my email inbox is out of control. It’s worse than my snail mailbox that is overflowing with catalogs.

  19. This sounds great! My inbox has gotten crazy lately and this sounds like the perfect solution.

  20. Sounds fantastic! I am so going to love this!!

  21. I’ve been tempted to unsubscribe from so many retailer sites but stopped in the process, for fear I’d miss a great deal. This is brilliant and will save my already obese email inbox. Thank you!

  36. Elaine C. says:

    Ooh, looks like a great site! I am in month 7 of my new year’s resolution to purchase no new shoes, clothes, or accessories – and have only “lapsed” twice. So I count that mostly as a win. Thank goodness for Pinterest! I think it shouldn’t count though, if I win a gift card…

  37. This is so timely – i was just looking last week for an app that would track sales at my favourite stores (didn’t find anything quite right). I hate buying anything regular priced!

  38. Just registered – and it’s awesome! Love it already. Thanks for the head’s up!

  39. Did someone say, “reduce clutter”? I am in.

  43. Who says creativity is dead? This is genius. Now someone needs to come up with a site that tells you when that blouse you’ve been watching goes on sale.

  44. What a great idea. What a great idea! thanks for hostingthe giveaway!

  45. What a great idea. What a great idea! thanks for hosting the giveaway!

  47. claudia098 says:

    Will have to check it out. I just recently started unsubscribing from all these emails, but I do kind of miss not knowing what’s going on in the sale world.

  48. Can’t wait to check this out!!

  49. Camille says:

    I’m just going to echo everyone else and say this is a fabulous idea!

  50. Bethany says:

    Awesome! I’d love to give this a try.

  51. Love this! Hoping it’s my lucky day (Friday the 13th has been considered lucky in my book ever since I was 12 or 13).

    Ah, I would love to win this!

  53. Dominique says:

    I signed up and love it…just hoping they add a bit more variety in their clothing section. I’m a plus sized girl and they don’t have any plus sized stores :(

  54. I signed up! Thanks for the chance to win!!

  55. This is great! Thanks!

  56. this is so maj, part of me is mad that i didn’t think of it first and part of me is so glad someone else did!

  57. Um, how cool is this?! Recently our money situation changed and I spent several days unsubscribing from my 50 store emails that I used to get. I’ll admit it’s been kind of sad and quiet in my mailbox ever since. This sounds like the perfect solution – thanks!

  58. this is pretty cool – loving that I can cut down on the number of emails I get in the morning. thanks!

  59. Mary Kate says:

    This is so cool! Consolidating all those emails is super great.
