Congratulations to the Craftmas contest winner

The creativity of our readers never ceases to amaze us. The sheer volume of incredibly artistic and beautiful holiday crafts entered into the PennySaverUSA.com and MOGASA Craftmas contest was a testament to just how much talent is possessed by the PennySaverUSA community.craftmas-contest-winner

The only downside to having so many fantastic submissions is that it made it so difficult on the judges to pick a winner. It was a long, arduous process, but in the end the judges came to a unanimous decision.

Without any further ado, it’s time to announce the Craftmas champion – Sheila and Laura R.! They created an adorable miniature Christmas scene complete with stockings, tree, fireplace, sofa, pets, wreath, cookies and, of course, gifts.

While Sheila and Laura R. took home the cash prize, the judges did want to at least give an honorable mention to three other contestants, whose crafts you can see on the image to the right below the winner’s craft:

  • Nancy L.
  • Veronica F.
  • Tricia F.

Please visit the PennySaverUSA Facebook gallery to see all the entries, or click on the image to the right.

If you didn’t win this PennySaverUSA.com contest, we will be launching a new one next week, so please come back to the blog to get the details.

Happy Holidays everyone!

Final chance to enter the Craftmas online contest

Twas the eve before Craftmas eve and Penny the Pig’s face was filled with glee … PennySaverUSA’s online contest had so many incredible entries for him to see!

The quality of the submissions has truly made the PennySaverUSA staff proud and in awe of the amazing talent displayed by our readers.


Visit the PennySaverUSA Facebook page to see all the entries.

So far, over 150 entries have been collected and the task of picking the winner will be extremely difficult. But we only expect the job of the judges to get harder over the next two days. That’s because the Craftmas online contest doesn’t end until Dec. 29!

Yep, you heard right, you have until Dec. 29 to submit a photo of your holiday craft. The prize for the winner is $250 – unless you have downloaded our free mobile garage sale app MOGASA on your iPhone or Android. If you are a MOGASA user, you will receive a $300 cash prize.

With the competition so tough right now, your best bet is to make a very unique holiday craft. Not to say that the multitude of wreaths, snowmen and gingerbread houses we’ve received aren’t awesome, because they are, but the more original the idea, the more it will stand out.

Don’t forget to post your seasonal craft photo on the PennySaverUSA Facebook wall and view all the entries on the PennySaverUSA Facebook page photos tab.

PennySaverUSA.com appreciates its amazing partners

With Hanukkah starting tonight and Christmas just five days away, all of us here at PennySaverUSA.com (see the staff pictured on the right) figured it was the perfect time to show appreciation for some of the amazing partners we’ve worked with this year and provide them the present of publicity!


Happy Holidays from the PennySaverUSA.com staff!

Below is a list of sites that have helped PennySaverUSA.com to its best year ever along with a description of the site and what makes them such a great partner.

The Reali$tic Couponers: Coupon alerts, giveaways and freebies are the primary forte of this site.

What makes it so wonderful; however, is the variety of the content. The site’s main purveyor, Brandi, does a fantastic job of providing an interesting blend of posts. Take today for example: She’s got up a personal reflection of the holidays called “The Spirit of the Season”, a coupon alert for glimmer and fake tattoos, a deal alert for diapers and a recipe for Sticky Buns.

Free Sample Momma: Freebies and coupons are what this site specializes in.

The great thing about Free Sample Momma is that she focuses on free stuff that is good for a general audience. Whether it be Target, Walmart or Amazon; Free Sample Momma is always on top of all the current offers from the biggest chains and stores.

Nifty Mom: A site that concentrates mainly on the 4 Cs: Couponing, crafting, cooking and critiquing.

In addition to having excellent content, the strength of this site is its easy-to-read layout. Anyone interested in getting to know more about any of the 4 Cs should definitely check this site out as she does a good job of balancing her content between each C.

“The” Cents’Able Shoppin: Frugal living and couponing for everyday folk is what this site is all about.

A recent redesign has added some creative flair to what has always been an outstanding resource for coupons, deals and freebies. For any aspiring couponer, this site is a must-read and it rarely strays from its focus of announcing newsworthy coupons and deals.

Just Married With Coupons: Count on plenty of reviews, giveaways, and yes, coupons from this site.

Though the site is called Just Married With Coupons, we actually believe its best content comes from its reviews and giveaways, which are prevalent and very high quality. The site itself is also extremely visually appealing, and they actually provide design services at a good price, if you are interested in starting your own blog.

If you have a site or blog and would like to partner with us, please email jfeller@pennysaverusa.com.

PennySaverUSA and MOGASA are pleased to present the 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!
