PennySaver Memories

PennySaver Memories

We’ve gotten tons of stories of how the PennySaver have affected your lives. There’s still 6 days left to enter our contest! Here are a few of our favorites so far!

Not only do our readers love being able to place free greetings in the PennySaver, they also enjoy reading them!

“My favorite memory is placing a Happy Fathers Day ad and seeing my dads face as he was reading the ads and ran across the ad for him. He was at first puzzled that someone else has three grandsons named Cameron, Daniel and Loster then he realized that it was for him. He framed the ad along with a picture of the boys.” – Ontario, CA

“My husband has been stressing out about money, work, and our little girl so one day i decided to put a message for him saying that we appreciate him very much when the ad came out i told him to look at the first page of PennySaver and there was the message for him his smile was so big and his stress seemed to go away for a few days and he also showed it off to his co workers saying that his wife loves him” – San Jose, CA

“My favorite memory was (and is every year) reading the message adds. especially on mothers or fathers day. They can be so sweet and sometimes they can be a bit silly or sad. To me when that section is in the issue its like my “entertainment” section of the PennySaver.” – Corona, CA

And we got compliments on our creative videos!

“When the pennysaver made its own hammer time song… SAVER TIME” – Simi Valley, CA

We’re happy to help people find their perfect homes!

“the day I called and was looking for a home for my family and was told to come to see it and when they called me back the next day and said that the house was ours.” – Compton, CA

“I found a great house rental in PennySaver back in 2005, a nice four bedroom house. I’ve lived here for the past 5 years and love the place; best deal I’ve ever found in Penny Saver!” – Baldwin Park, CA

And we also help reunite old friends!

“I once placed an ad on PennySaver, for a leather jacket. I actually took the jacket to the interested buyer, as she was unable to drive. I couldn’t believe that it turned out to be an old friend of mine that I hadn’t seen in years! Not only did I sell my jacket, I was re-united with a lost friend – what a wonderful thing!” – Bakersfield, CA
