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 and is in over 700 local editions and 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 life. We want to share a few of these every week with you here on our PennySaverUSA.com blog.
It was a hot summer day and I was without any A/C, and on a very limited budget. My Pennysaver arrives in the mail, and like a dream come true, there it was. An ad for an air conditioner for only $25. With fingers crossed, I called, hoping it hasn’t been sold already, and it hadn’t. 20 mins. later it was in my car and I was on my way home, my prayer was answered. 3 summers laters and I’m still keeping cool with my Pennysaver bargin. -Antioch, CA
My favorite PennySaver memory happened more than eight years ago. We were living in the city of Orange and we had just bought a 4 bedroom home. My daughter’s bedroom was painted pink and it looked just beautiful, but it was missing one thing only: an armoire. With my budget, I couldn’t afford to buy something expensive, so I looked in the PennySaver and found one for just $20, and it fit perfectly in the bedroom. As my daughter got older and outgrew it, I decided to give it away to a thrift shop in Orange for someone else to enjoy. This thrift shop happens to be my job which I also found in the PennySaver Ad at the time. These memories are truly my favorite PennySaver memories. I love the PennySaver, even though I’m not looking for something specific, I just love looking through it regardless, and thank you for the precious memories. -Yorba Linda, CA
I’ve been reading and posting in the PennySaver since I was about 15 years old. I’m 27 now. Back then, I was posting listings to sell my purebred Mini-Rex and California rabbits. I raised these rabbits through my high school’s FFA/Agriculture program. It was so exciting the first time I saw my ad in print, I think I still have a copy of the issue that my first ad was in. I felt so grown up. I love the PennySaver and hope to be reading and posting in it for years to come. -Lake Elsinore, CA
Our favorite memory is when my husband won a contest with you. 5 yrs ago, he won $1,500 to spend at Don Roberto’s Jewelry Store. It was second place in the contest. We went to the store and were able to pick out $1,500 worth of jewelry. What a trip! -Azusa, CA
