Steals of the Week: Christmas gift ideas for the entire family

Steals of the Week and Christmas gift ideas go hand-in-hand. Who doesn’t want to get that special loved one an amazing gift without going into debt in the process?

PennySaverUSA is here to help you get just the right gift at just the right price for anyone in your family.

We’ll start with the patriarch of the family. There are many great Christmas gift ideas for dad on our site, but we chose to highlight this particular one in Steals of the Week. It’s a Taylormade Lightweight Golf Carrying Stand Bag for only $99 in Crestline, CA. That’s an astounding deal and gift for any golf enthusiast.


Moving on to mom, this particular item among PennySaverUSA’s Christmas gift ideas stood out and deserves its place among Steals of the Week. It’s a Yankee Candle Large Jar Blueberry w/ Ceramic American Shade and Tray available for just $25 in Palm Harbor, Fla. Snatch this one up soon as that kind of discounted item isn’t liable to last long.


For the little boy in the family, we’ve got a Nintendo Wii system. When it comes to Christmas gift ideas, it’s kind of a no-brainer that a Wii is a prime option for kids. Especially when it only costs $125 like this unit in Mint Hill, NC.


It has been one of the best Christmas gift ideas for girls since the dawn of the PennySaver 50 years ago – Barbie. The collectible ones can be pricey, but not when Steals of the Week is involved! Get this Mermaid Barbie from 1991 for only $9.95. That’s a much better price than the market average right now.


Wrapping up this Christmas gift ideas edition of Steals of the Week is an item perfect for grandma and grandpa. The adorable Circus Mountain Railroad 2002 Hallmark ornament is perfect to add to their collection of Christmas decorations.

PennySaver Memories: Garage Sales, Farmers Markets and Amusement Parks

As many of you know, especially our California readers, PennySaver is a brand that has been a part of millions of lives for 48 years,  is in over 700 local editions, and is mailed to 95% of the residents in California. And because of this, there are a great deal of stories that we hear from our readers about how the PennySaver shaped their lives. We want to share a few of these every week with you here on our PennySaverUSA.com blog.

I remember as a child checking the PennySaver for garage sales. My mom and I would then go out hunting down great deals in our local neighborhoods. I couldn’t wait for the newest PennySaver to be delivered! We picked up a lot of good finds at the sales and my mom taught me how to bargain for a good deal. Now, as a parent, my young daughters also love garage sales. We head out and find great deals. One of the best finds was a Barbie Dream Hotel that another girl gave to my daughter for free because she wanted someone to enjoy it as much as she did. Thanks PennySaver! – San Mateo, CA

I can remember lots of summers where my dad would look for yard sale ads in the PennySaver and he often wanted to take me to ”help” look for tools and stuff for home improvement. Sometimes I didn’t want to go, but when I saw him look through lots of treasures out on blankets on people’s front yards, he became an excited little kid at a Easter egg hunt. I felt happy that my dad was so happy,and sometimes I would find something for myself, a kid’s book, a old stuffed animal and I would have a big smile that matched my dad’s. And later that day, we would show mom our treasures we found at summer yard sales. -Azusa, CA

Years ago, I won a 4pack of Castle Amusement Park tickets through the Pennysaver. I took my grandsons and they had the time of their life. It was so wonderful for them (and us), considering at the time there was no way we couldn’t afford Disneyland or pretty much anything for them. It was truly a blessing. THANKS AGAIN, we’ll never forget it. -Victorville, CA

So every week my now 8-year-old son will look through the Pennysaver for the puzzles, free stuff, and a Farmers Market coupon. One day we decided to go to the Farmers Market with Pennysaver in hand. Well, the day we went it happened to be raining. The Farmers Market is always on rain or shine. My son wanted to walk around and look for the perfect item he wanted. The rain was steady and in time, the coupon had fallen apart in his hands, but they still honored it even though no one could tell what it had said. He was so happy and we were both soaked!!! We had a lot of fun and without our Pennysaver, we would have never gone to that Farmers Market…thank you, Pennysaver!! We are always looking forward to getting our Pennysaver in the mail!  -Ventura, CA
