Tweet Dads and Grads #pennyshouts to get free message printed in Penny Saver

June is a great month for families. We call it Dads & Grads month here at PennySaverUSA.com.

Father’s Day is only a few weeks away, and both high school and college graduations are also around the same time. For those emotional dads out there, especially ones with kids that are graduating, the tears could be flowing.

Add on to that the prospect of a heartfelt message showing up in the local Penny Saver when they lean back on the recliner to relax for a few moments with their favorite (we hope) reading material and you’ve got a true recipe for maximum dad crying.


Tweet a #pennyshout thanking your dad ... or grad ... or both!

Likewise, give your son or daughter the inspirational lift they need as they enter the next phase in their life with a #pennyshout.

Just tweet us @pennysaverusa with your Dads and Grads message, the hashtag #pennyshout and your zip code, and it will appear in the print edition of your local Penny Saver (valid only for California residents).

If you don’t have a Twitter account, you can also send in your free message the old fashioned way through the phone or fax.

The number to call is (800) 995-3333 and the fax is (760) 599-1505.

The deadline to get in your free Father’s Day message is Thursday, June 9.

PennySaver Memories

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.

My favorite PennySaver memory was (and is) reading all of the ads every week, especially on Mother’s or Father’s 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, it’s my ‘entertainment’ section of the PennySaver.                                                                        -Corona, CA

I got my first dog with my husband (then-boyfriend) from PennySaver! Lots of really great memories with just us and the dog, like hiking, fundraiser walks, play dates and puppy class! Thanks, PennySaver, for making it all happen! -Alhambra, CA

My favorite PennySaver memory was finding a great cabin to rent!!! We had such a fun vacation, and we’ll have memories forever!!!! Thanks Pennysaver! Palmdale, CA

I remember that I had a very small puppy that needed a home very badly. I put it in the PennySaver and sold it the very next day. I missed my puppy , but I was glad find a good home for him . -Cathedral City, CA

My favorite PennySaver memory was winning Sacramento Zoo tickets last summer, my family and I had a great time!!! Sacremento, Ca

I usually don’t win contests or prizes, so I was skeptical about entering in a PennySaver contest. It was my lucky day after all! The first time I ever entered a Pennysaver contest, I won 2 Tickets to the Pirate Dinner Show in Buena Park, CA. I took a neighbor with me and it was the best show I’d seen in a long time. -West Covina, CA

Actually, my favorite memory of the PennySaver is every day. Seeing how many people place ads and trust the paper. -Upland, CA

My favorite PennySaver memory was answering an ad about free kittens 18 yrs ago, when we found the newest addition to our family. We had our cat Timber for 18 years after that, had the ad for free kittens not been placed in the Pennysaver, we would of missed out on owning a cat who would bring home lost animals or hurt ones; he even brought home a hurt hummingbird one day. He carried it home and placed it on the porch and meowed until I saw it. We were able to nurse it back to health and let it go. His last rescue was a cat he brought home that the owner had lived 27 miles from us, she lost her husband and the cat all with in a week, and we were able to re-unite the cat & owner. He was a great cat. Thanks to the PennySaver for having a magazine that helps people to reach one another sent right to their household.  Long Beach, CA

My favorite PennySaver memory was when I sent a message to my husband for Father’s Day. It was a special day. I usually can’t really do anything for father’s day because i’m not working. when my husband seen the message he had teary eyes it was very special to me and him. Thanks to the people that made this possible I really appreciated. -Redlands, CA

My favorite PennySaver memory is when my 6yr. old son brought home his classroom hamster for Christmas break and his teacher only gave him 1 days worth of hamster bedding.  He was was devastated because he knew of our finances being low and stressed out to the point where he was looking in newspapers to find coupons from pet stores. So, finally, he checked our mail and came across the PennySaver and his prayers were answered. He came across your coupon section and found a coupon for 20% off at our local pet store!!!! My son was so happy and his words, as I recall were: “Thanks to the PennySaver, I won’t be getting any gray hairs now!!!!”. So that’s my favorite memory! -La Mesa, CA
