Make Money Monday: Make and save with new daily deals site SaverTime

PennySaverUSA.com will typically focus on jobs during the Make Money Monday feature, but this is a special day that calls for a one-week detour. It’s the launch of our daily deals site SaverTime!

Spread the word about SaverTime and earn credits.

Sometimes the best way to make money is to save money, but with SaverTime you can actually do both. In addition to offering great coupons, SaverTime’s 5-3-2 Rewards Program allows you to receive credits the more friends in your network buy a deal. You can then use those credits towards deals and end up with an awesome coupon without having to spend a penny.

As if a daily deal program that helps you Make Money Monday and save money at the same time wasn’t enough, there are several other advantages SaverTime has over the other daily deals sites.

Unlike so many other daily deal sites that have either national or regional deals that might be completely irrelevant for you depending on where you live, SaverTime stays true to its local focus. When you sign up, you will be asked to select your locations (you can pick as many or as few as you like). You will then only get daily deals emails dedicated to your locations (for each location you add to your favorites, you’ll have to subscribe to get the emails).  That way you don’t have to read through an email with daily deals from some place you will never visit. Not all locations are ready quite yet, so if you don’t see your area of residence, please check back periodically.

Enter for a chance to win up to $1,000 in the SaverTime contest.

Another thing that separates SaverTime from your average daily deals site is that it offers practical coupons you will actually use. It can get frustrating when you get repeated daily deals featuring unusual goods or services that aren’t really functional at all. SaverTime deals are designed to help you save money on every-day expenses like your car or home.

To make it even more convenient to use SaverTime, you can get Deals-On-The-Go using your mobile phone, and as if you needed any other reasons to join, SaverTime is offering prizes of up to $1,000 in its free contest!

You won’t want to get that oil change or gutter cleaned without consulting SaverTime first to see if a money-saving deal is available. Stay up to date with everything SaverTime on their Facebook page and Twitter feed. What are you waiting for? Become a member!

Disclaimer: For now, SaverTime is only offering daily deals in California, but it will be adding Florida over the next month, and is open to adding more states. Please tell us where you’d like to see us go in the comments.

How-to enter our April video free contest for a chance at a $250 cash prize!

Entries for the PennySaverUSA.com April video free contest are starting to trickle in slowly, but we wanted to take some time to point out to you how easy it is to enter.

Some of you might be feeling overwhelmed by the prospect of having to tape a video and upload it onto YouTube. It’s actually quite simple, though.

If you have a smartphone, you can just film a quick little clip with your phone, and upload it to YouTube using the YouTube app. That’s about as easy as it gets.

free contest

If you don’t have a smartphone, it’s only slightly more difficult. Most digital still cameras these days also contain a video function. All you have to do is put the setting on your camera to video, take a quick clip of you doing or saying something funny and save it to your computer using a USB chord. Once you have it on your computer, it takes a matter of seconds to upload it onto YouTube. It’s no different than uploading a photo onto a web site.

Of course, there is also the option of going all out and using an actual video camera to film something funny. Again, once you have filmed it, just hook your video camera up to a USB chord, save it on to your computer and upload it to YouTube. If you don’t have a USB chord, odds are a friend or family member has one or can help you figure out how to get your video onto your computer.

Should you not happen to have a video camera, digital camera or smartphone, someone you know probably does and you can collaborate with them. The cash prize of $250 is plenty large enough to share after all.

The video must be clean and harmless, but it can involve a joke or anything funny. We have provided another example above of when PennySaverUSA when to International Pillow Fight Day of the kind of video that could win you $250!

Have fun filming and good luck.

Earlier today we announced our March “Your Lucky Day” free contest winner, and Yvette Maclean will take home the $250 cash prize.

For those of you who weren’t lucky enough to win that free contest, however, you can enter the April Fools Rush In contest for a chance at another $250 cash prize.

While PennySaverUSA.com employees are ineligible to win the cash prize, Jason Feller, the PennySaverUSA.com Online Content & Community Manager, made his own entry into the contest and dares you to beat him.

He played a practical joke on three of his co-workers and used a hidden camera to capture their reactions. Watch above.

Please remember to keep your entries clean, fun and harmless. Any offensive videos will be disqualified immediately, and we will not permit videos in which anyone got hurt.

Who knows? Maybe you’ll submit a funny video link and wind up emerging with a $250 cash prize like Yvette Maclean.

“Your Lucky Day” free contest winner announced

PennySaverUSA.com’s “Your Lucky Day” free contest was a rousing success with 350 total entries.

Picking through the significant number of amazing stories to find a winner was extremely difficult. You guys blew away the PennySaverUSA.com staff stories of their lucky day (see the video).

There were epic tales of unlikely survival in a catastrophe, heartwarming recollections of meeting that special someone, cute anecdotes from proud parents and memorable accounts of winning or finding money and prizes.

The quality of entries truly was astounding, but one lucky winner had to be chosen.

Congratulations to Yvette Maclean from El Cajon, Ca. who made the victorious submission and will be receiving a $250 cash prize for her efforts.

Her touching story of finding $45 on the ground, using the cash to buy a bike helmet for her toddler daughter and that helmet protecting her daughter from serious injury when she crashed and landed on her head the following day, struck just the right chord.

A huge thanks goes out to everyone who participated in the “Your Lucky Day” free contest, and please join us in congratulating Yvette Maclean.

Here is her full entry, for those interested: When my when my son was five we went bicycle riding a lot. The next year his sister was born and we had to walk everywhere and take the stroller. When she was around 3 years old, I bought a child seat for my bike for her but didn’t have enough for her helmet, so even though I though about using the bike we kept walking. On one walk to the store I found $45 on the ground (pretty lucky) so we stopped at Target and got her a toddler bike helmet. Two days later we were out for a ride and the bike hit a hole in the sidewalk and completely flipped over. I fell off but my daughter was strapped in and her head hit the pavement. Luckily she had on her brand new fish covered helmet, and it saved her (pretty lucky).
