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.

I had been a little sad for a while wanting to get a chihuahua, and my husband happened to see an ad for puppies in the PennySaver and surprised me with one! She is a really funny and sweet dog, thanks PennySaver! -San Ysidro, CA

Years ago, I was not doing great in the money department and had no auto insurance. A friend drove my car and crashed it. Having not much money to fix it, I looked in the PennySaver and found an ad for “guaranteed 50% off your lowest estimate for auto body work.” I followed up, and the advertiser did my work for well less than half, and did a beautiful job! -Calimesa, CA

My first and best surfboard was purchased through PennySaver. I learned to surf on that board and it was the best. After surfing, I would fall asleep on the sand with one arm on my board so no one could take it. It was eventually stolen out of my backyard though, but that board still brings back great memories and I know somewhere, someone is learning to surf on it today. -Huntington Beach, CA

One day I had a flat tire, so I had to walk to work 5 miles. When I was half way there, I looked down on the ground and saw a PennySaver. I started looking through it and saw my exact tire size in an ad for$10!  I called the people, and it just so happens that it was someone who had a back yard shop and put the tire on for a total of $10 bucks. It was a blessing and a great memory.  -Hemet, Beach

What’s your favorite PennySaver memory?

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

Our snack drawer had become a vacant lot of sorts this week, and we decided that something drastic had to be done. We ventured out to the nearest snack warehouse and came back with a serious helpin’ of chocolate, powdered sugar, jelly beans, gummy bears, Swedish Fish and other things that we only eat in small amounts after we have our appropriate food groups…we promise. The PennySaverUSA web team presents: Snack Time=Good Time!
