Enter the Craftmas online contest for a chance to win a cash prize

An amazing 2011 slate of PennySaverUSA.com online contests is coming to a close, but not without one last incredible online contest.

PennySaverUSA and MOGASA are pleased to present the Craftmas Contest!

craftmas contest

Win up to $300 by entering our Craftmas Contest.

All you have to do is show us your holiday spirit by sending us a photo of a seasonal craft you’ve created before December 29, 2011, and enter it through our online contest form.

Submissions will be scrutinized by a panel of PennySaverUSA judges (don’t worry, we’re not Grinches), and one winning entry will be chosen and announced on Friday, Dec. 30.

The winner will take home a $300 cash prize if they have downloaded our free mobile garage sale app MOGASA for iPhone or Android and $250 if they haven’t. That should help alleviate those bills coming in around the New Year!

Our previous two online contests were among the most successful in PennySaverUSA.com history and we hope to build that momentum with our Craftmas Contest!

We encourage all participants to also post their seasonal craft on the PennySaverUSA or MOGASA Facebook wall and provide a short description of what it took to make the craft.

Alright, enough yapping from us, you’ve got work to do, creating that seasonal craft masterpiece.

Good luck!

PennySaverUSA.com online classifieds enhancements include place an ad on Facebook feature

First and foremost, PennSaverUSA.com is an online classifieds site. We have online coupons, online contests and daily deals, but our core service remains online classifieds.

Place a free online classifieds ad through the PennySaverUSA Facebook page.

As such, we have made and are continuing to make major enhancements to help you sell your stuff through PennySaverUSA.com online classifieds.

There is lots of competition in the online classifieds space, and if we had a penny for every time we heard that Craigslist was the “new PennySaver” we’d have enough money to pay off the national debt. But the fact of the matter is … the “new PennySaver” is actually PennySaverUSA.com!  (the original PennySaver print publication is still going strong in its own right).

PennySaverUSA.com features multiple online classifieds categories in which you can list what you are selling. Even better are the newer enhancements for sellers.

A big one is that you can now place your online classifieds ad from our Facebook page! If you happen to be on Facebook and are chatting with friends or just catching up on your wall or news feed and remember you wanted to sell something through an online classifieds ad, you no longer have to leave Facebook to do so.

Just visit the PennySaverUSA Facebook page and click on the “Place a free ad” tab on the left-hand side of the page located under the “Welcome!” tab. Then just fill out the fields and your online classifieds ad will be published to PennySaverUSA.com. Easy as pie.

package-deal

Get premium ad placement and paid icons for a discounted $12 price.

Coming shortly we will also have Halloween icons available for your online classifieds ad at the very low cost of $2.50. This will really help set your ad apart.

We will also have a special holiday package deal for $12 that includes premium placement (normally $20 by itself) plus the Halloween icons. In order to take advantage of this great deal, just make sure to click the “Check out today’s bulk deals” on the enhancements page (step two of placing your ad). See the image to the right.

Forget all the competition and go with the trusted source for 50 years when placing your online classifieds ads: PennySaverUSA.com.

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!
