Announcing the Winner of our “So You Think Your Pet’s Cute?” Contest

After more than 900 entries, thousands of votes, and a close race up until the last day, it’s our pleasure to finally announce the winner of our “So You Think Your Pet’s Cute?” Contest. We diligently checked the votes of each entry to make sure they were valid, and the contest was kept fair to everyone.

Personally, this was one of my favorite contests that we’ve run, because every single pet submitted was super cute, and have family and friends that truly love and care about them! I want to thank everyone that entered and voted. I hope you all enjoyed the contest and will stay connected with us for more contests in the future!

So without further ado…

The winner of our $250 prize is:

Congratulations Cali Lollipop!

A brief bio on our fabulous winner and what she plans to do with the prize money…

Cali Lollipop is a 2 year old Morkie (Maltese/Yorkie Mix). She is 3.8 pounds but her small size is definitely not equivalent to the size of her heart. With not a bad bone in her body, Cali Lollipop’s favorite thing to do is give “Puppy Smooches” to everything she encounters (whether human or furry) and never passes a flower without stopping to take time to sniff it. Her name (Cali) definitely suits her because she is a true CALIfornia girl. She loves the outdoors and the beach. She has vowed to use her cuteness to help others that are less fortunate than she is. She will be donating portions of her winnings to both Puppy Rescue Mission (who transport animals out of military war zones to the safety of the United States and loving homes) and Operation Pet Pals (founded by Spike Taylor to provide stuffed animal companions and supplies to those lonely in Nursing Homes and hospitals). Just like her name, Cali Lollipop is one of a kind and filled with sweetness; the true love of her “paw-rents’” lives.

Honorable Mention to our 4 runner ups (2-5 respectively). Thank you so much for being a part of our contest:

Buster, Casper, Pots and Nike!

PennySaver Memories

PennySaver Memories

I go “yarding” with my girlfriends every Saturday morning and we use the PennySaver to obtain all the houses and addresses for our garage sales. We have met the nicest people along the way and have gotten some real “finds” over the years and there is a story that goes along with each and every one of our purchases. It is our “girl” time together and we thank the PennySaver for listing all the Garage Sales every week! -Farmingdale, NY

I have purchased many items through the Pennysaver including vehicles, furniture, sporting equipment, toys, maternity and kids clothes and lots of baby items. However, I’d have to say that my most memorable item obtained through the PennySaver would be my Golden Retriever dog, Tucker. I bought him through the Pennysaver as a puppy 13 years ago and still have him today. He is a wonderful family dog. My son adores him and calls him the “best dog ever.” They are best buddies and do everything together. We love him so much and wish he’d be able to stay with us forever! -Acton, CA

My favorite PennySaver memory was last year when there used to be “The Never-ending Contest” and I would enter to win each week with no success…until one day I checked my mailbox and discovered I had won four free tickets to the Sacramento Zoo! I was so excited and I took my wife and three children to the Sacramento Zoo. My kids had a great time! Thank you, Pennysaver! -Sacramento, CA

I LOVE going through the PennySaver, especially the Lost & Found ads. One week I noticed that someone had lost a Miniature Pinscher in Sylmar. I remembered seeing a “found” sign while out on a run for a dog fitting the description. I drove to where I had seen the sign and called the number, and they still had the dog. I told them about the ad for the lost dog, gave them the number and asked them to call me back if it was the same dog. I did in fact get a call back, but not from them,  but from the owner of the dog. It turned out to be the same dog, and the owner wanted to thank me for taking the time to get the “lost” and the “found” in touch with each other. Because of that experience, I ALWAYS pay attention to Lost & Found flyers and ads, because you just never know. -Sylmar, CA

Thanksgiving Recipe Contest Cooking Challenge!

Here at PennySaverUSA, we are right in the middle of our Thanksgiving Recipe Contest, where people are submitting their recipes for a shot at winning $250. We have received some very traditional recipes, as well as some not so traditional side-dishes that caught our attention. Our Content and Community guy, Brett Houchin, decided that he needed to try to make one of the non-traditional side dishes to add to his Thanksgiving cooking repertoire.  He’s not a big fan of following recipes, so this was a quite a challenge for him!

What is your favorite Thanksgiving Recipe? Submit it to be entered to win $250! Also, come by our Facebook page to see some recipes being posted onto our Facebook Wall!

Bruins or Beavers? PennySaverUSA/IWearYourShirt at the Rose Bowl!

On Saturday, PennySaverUSA.com teamed up with IWearYourShirt.com to visit the Rose Bowl and watch the UCLA Bruins play the Oregon State Beavers, and we wanted our fans to be able to participate as well! Over 400 people texted in who they wanted to win the game, but they did have an incentive for their vote: We are randomly choosing 50 of the 440 people and will award them with $50! Those are some great odds!

Evan, from IWearYourShirt.com, and Brett, from PennySaverUSA.com, took to the tailgating masses at the Rose Bowl and handed out PSUSA stickers with the contest instructions on the back of the stickers. The UCLA fans were so amazing to us in the parking lot and made us feel right at home!

After all of the votes were counted, it looked like our PennySaver peeps out there are slightly bigger fans of California’s own UCLA. The final count of the votes submitted via mobile phone was Bruins-240/Beavers-200. The Bruins fans picked the correct winner; UCLA beat out Oregon State 17-14. Well Done! Thanks for voting! If you were one of the 50 people selected, you will receive a verification text today to let you kn0w that you win 50 bucks!

I Wear Your Shirt was so great to us on Saturday! Click Here check out all of their videos and pictures for PennySaverUSA.com Day!

Be sure to LIKE us on Facebook, we just hit the 4,000 mark today.
