The app is great! The verified penny items make it way easier to find items in the store. The moderators do a great job of enforcing the rules. (Like only post Penny items not sale!) I do have 2 complaints - 1) The app glitches a lot in the store. The camera scanner will turn upside down, so I have to type in the UPC. The app also crashes a lot for me in the store. However it works almost perfectly when I’m in WiFi. 2) I wish that the “penny list” had categories to search through and a tool to prevent the same item being added multiple times. They’re is no consistency in how users title the items they add. For example someone added a tube of Crest toothpaste to the list. But, they only named it “Crest 3D White” instead of “Crest 3D White Toothpaste”. So if you are searching for “toothpaste” that great item won’t pop up. For newbies like me who browse the penny list to learn what to look for, those searches are critical.
I don’t buy to many apps but I came across penny finder and I wanted to learn more on how to save money. With this app I have been blessed! I have been able to help my family and donate to help others. It’s a great feeling to be able to help someone when you are the person that could use some help. I highly recommend this app and the Facebook group. I enjoy interacting with others who can relate and help each other. Very user friendly. Definitely know that you need to not just jump into finding deals. Make sure you watch the tutorial and study. In no time you will be a pro. The scanner is absolutely the best and I’ve never had any issues with it. The developers are awesome people who immediately contact you back with any issues you have. Try it! You will get your money back and more after your first successful trip. Bless you all!
I love finding penny items. I’ve used this app QUITE a bit so in my experience is has paid for itself. I don’t usually pay for apps but it’s actually really fun to penny hunt. Lol. I do wish there were some more features in the app. I love that you can post hauls but I wish you could comment and it would let you know when someone has answers. To the best of my knowledge there’s no alerts for that. I think maybe they’ve made it so newer stuff shows up towards the top on the list? That’s helpful because my stores are way too darn organized. But I do believe the app is worth the price. Though don’t be surprised when DG staff recognize you as the penny finder client because they don’t always love you.
There is a learning curve to the penny finder app, but it doesn’t take long to get the hang of it. Once you get used to it, it’s easy to use and such a cool app! I love that there is a wall to post about items, and you can comment and interact with other penny shoppers. There are only a couple things I feel need improvement. When searching for items on the app, they can sometimes be difficult to find because they’re listed under an unusual name or misspelled. Also, it may be more helpful if the size/weight/quantity of the item were listed if applicable. For example, dog treats, candy, feminine products, etc—sometimes the size/weight/quantity is not visible in the photo. I feel that this would make it easier for shoppers to know exactly what they’re looking for. Nevertheless, this is a brilliant and awesome app! Penny shopping can be challenging, but so much fun!
Oooook, so, I am not a big fan of new apps, especially when I have to spend money on them. BUT, I decided to give penny finder a shot, in hopes of it actually making up for the money spent. I am very happy to say, that the app made up for the 1.99 in less than 12 hours 👏🏻! I had never been able to find a penny item, and actually thought it was some sick joke people posted about online, mocking all the poor people who spent hours tearing through a dollar general, in search of just one single penny item (been there)! But, that is not the case. Penny items are real folks! And they are awesome! And addicting! This app is a life saver, (maybe not life, but definitely a MONEY saver!) and in my opinion, it is soooooo worth the $1.99! This app has helped me get at least one penny item every time I use it!❤️
