PennySaver contests: Share a Memory; Make a Buck

Time to face a hard truth: PennySaver contests are just totally awesome and when there isn’t one running, it’s very sad.

Thankfully, you don’t have to be sad as we’re unveiling the newest of our PennySaver contests.share-a-memory-make-a-buck-online-contest

It’s called the Share a Memory; Make a Buck Contest and is a perfect way to kick off the 2012 slate of monthly PennySaver contests.

All you have to do is write a short essay (250 words or less) about a memory from 2011 that defined your year and submit your entry here. The winner will receive a $250 cash prize.

Our judges will review all of our entries and judge on content, originality, and clarity (save our eyes and spellcheck).

Baby’s first steps, blushing brides, first glimpse of the Grand Canyon? We want to hear about it all. We’ve got tissues and bubbly toasts standing by.

That’s not all, though! There are two more PennySaver contests for our Florida readers from our partner publication The Flyer:

  1. Enter for a chance to win a 4 Day/ 3 Night Getaway to Grand Golf Resorts of Florida
  2. Enter for a chance to win a 4 day/ 3 night getaway for 4 to Florida’s Space Coast

Happy New Year and good luck in the PennySaver contests.

Thanksgiving Recipe Contest Cooking Challenge!

Here at PennySaverUSA, we are right in the middle of our Thanksgiving Recipe Contest, where people are submitting their recipes for a shot at winning $250. We have received some very traditional recipes, as well as some not so traditional side-dishes that caught our attention. Our Content and Community guy, Brett Houchin, decided that he needed to try to make one of the non-traditional side dishes to add to his Thanksgiving cooking repertoire.  He’s not a big fan of following recipes, so this was a quite a challenge for him!

What is your favorite Thanksgiving Recipe? Submit it to be entered to win $250! Also, come by our Facebook page to see some recipes being posted onto our Facebook Wall!
