When I was a kid pennies used to make my brother, cousins and I feel rich! Our nana would give us each ten pennies to spend at the 1 cent store. It may not seem like much but back then a penny went a long way. Ten pennies meant ten pieces of candy and to us that was a massive. We didn’t even want to eat the candy right away. We’d spend the weekend trading candies and making up games with a few candies as the prizes. I think those memories are the reason why pennies were always my favorite coin.
Remember when the penny was worth something?
Well pennies are still worth having! JCPenney is launching the Get Your Penney’s Worth campaign that features awesome promotional offers called “Penney Days.” During these Penney Days there will be BOGOs (buy one, get one) specials available in store and on jcp.com. Now through March 5th you can purchase any item from the The Original Arizona Jean Co.® and purchase another Arizona item for just one penny (except footwear). Throughout the rest of the year, other Penney Day promotions will include one day specials that feature a unique in-store item for just a penny with no additional purchase required!
Definitely keep an eye out for upcoming Penney Days so you don’t miss out! As if anyone needs a reason to shop great items, it’s definitely worth the time, effort and of course the money to shop JCPenney in-store or online. JCPenney carries some of my favorite brands such as Nike and Levi, private brands and items for the home at great prices. I’m so ready for Penney Days! Are you?
To further bring to life the American mindset of the penny, JCPenney conducted a penny focused survey. The results found that the penny may be tiny, but mighty! 95 million Americans (2 in 5) say they usually wouldn’t even pick up a penny if they saw it on the sidewalk. But that doesn’t mean Americans think the penny is worthless. In fact, quite the opposite. Nearly nine in ten Americans still keep pennies around either in their home, a piggy bank or their purse (89%) and say that pennies can come in handy (88%). Almost three-quarters of Americans (73%) say the penny is an important part of our currency and should not be eliminated.
