Every American is connected with Memorial Day in some way, and this is a great opportunity to honor our fallen soldiers, send your condolences to those who have lost someone in the line of duty and thank all of our military families for their sacrifice.

Put a free Mother’s Day message in the Penny Saver via #pennyshout on Twitter

One of our favorite features here at PennySaverUSA.com is the #pennyshout. All you have to do is follow us on Twitter @pennysaverusa and tweet us using the hashtag #pennyshout to have your message printed for free in the weekly Penny Saver (only eligible to California residents). The message will also appear on this blog as you can see to the right.

While the #pennyshout feature is relevant throughout the year, there is perhaps no more appropriate use for it than Mother’s Day. Imagine your mom flipping through the Penny Saver when it arrives in the mail on Wednesday and seeing a sweet message from you right there in print. What a great way to set up Mother’s Day that Sunday.


One important thing to remember when you tweet your #pennyshout to us is to include the zip code where you want the message sent. Otherwise, we have no way of telling which Penny Saver to place the ad.

Once you tweet your #pennyshout to us, your work is done. We take care of the rest. Such little work for a very meaningful result: You can’t beat that.

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

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

To mail your free greeting, send your letter to Attn: Mother’s Day Greetings P.O. Box 1689 Vista, CA 92085.

The deadline to get in your free Mother’s Day message is Thursday, April 28th.

Happy Mother’s Day everybody!

Steals of the Week-Musical Instruments-a-Plenty!

It’s time for Steals of the Week! Like a lot of kids, this reporter personally has a great memory of receiving my first guitar for Christmas; it’s a day I’ll never forget! It’s a great time to make a musician’s day by giving them a tool to either learn on, or continue doing what they do best. We have some great finds below from the PennySaverUSA.com Universe!

For a guitar player looking for a unique new sound, check out this Brownsville 12-String Choirboy electric semi-hollow body guitar, with a pearl white finish. The owner says that the sound is phenomenal plugged in and even sounds good acoustically! It’s located in Rosamond, CA and is going for $200! This could make a great present for that guitar player always looking for a new sound.

Here is a great music gear deal for the beginner guitar players out there: This Esteban electric/acoustic guitar comes with a case, a cord and a G10 amplifier, and it’s all going for only $70! Guitar has black high gloss body with cream pick guard and is located in Washington, PA. It comes with a hard case and a tuner, so this is pretty much everything the beginner needs to get started. Don’t pass this up!

Buying a drum set new can be a rather expensive task. Most sets don’t come with anything but the basic hardware and drums; no cymbals or add-ons…unless you found this ad on PennySaverUSA.com! This barely-used Pearl drum set comes complete with an Empire Rototom set and  includes a Zildjian ZBT 13″ High Hat, Zildjian ZBT 8″ Crash & Empire Cymbals- all with heavy duty hardware stands and stool. Drumsticks and Zildjian drumstick bag included, and the whole package is going for $500! That is insane!

Do you have a keyboardist in the family that wants that grand piano sound without the huge wood box in the house? Take a look at this Yamaha PSR-E213 located in Pembroke Pines, FL. One press of the Portable Grand button resets the entire keyboard to a stereo-sampled piano! The keyboard includes a Sustain Pedal jack, as well as a stand, foot pedal and chair. And it’s going for only $95!

Do you have a steal that you found that you want to share? Comment below!

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.

30 years ago, I met my husband at a garage sale that had been advertised in PennySaver. – San Jose, ca

I was looking for a coupon for the recycling of all my cans and bottles and it turned out a friend of mine mentioned she was taking hers to a different location without a coupon. She now uses the coupon from the Pennysaver and helps the planet, just like me!  -Norwalk, CA

It was winter time, and I had been out of work for some time. I found a local job right there in my PennySaver.  I know the PennySaver’s variety offers nearly everyone a chance to make the change they need to make.  -San Bernardino, CA

My favorite PennySaver memory goes way back to 2001. There was an ad for a company hiring near my home. I had been looking for work for about 2 months. I called the number, went to an interview, and got hired. Began working the very next day. The PennySaver saved the day!  -Santa Ana, CA
