Welcome to penny finder! Where like-minded, savings savvy, penny pinching people come to find the latest and greatest penny finds from Dollar General*! WE NOW HAVE OVER 3700+ VERIFIED PENNY ITEMS AND COUNTING! Join the THOUSANDS of other Penny Finders! penny finder crowdsources information from our users and catalogs items into a database...AKA we put them in a nice searchable table! You can: - Scan a barcode and the app will tell you if an item is a penny based on other user's discoveries (This app is not a Price Scanner, it's a Penny Scanner) - OFFLINE MODE: Our app will still work even if you have no internet, just make sure you have downloaded the list at least once. - Add your own Penny Items to the list using our Penny Scanner! - Post your amazing finds on our Haul Wall! - Most Recent Penny Finds are highlighted in green and at the top - You can flag penny items that you know are full price to have them removed. - You can add Penny Items to your favorites for quick viewing later. WHAT WE ASSUME YOU KNOW BEFORE YOU DOWNLOAD: We assume that you know what penny items are. We assume you know what store this app is for. We assume that you know that UPC codes are very important and critical to finding the correct penny items. (you shouldn't penny shop based off only images). WE CANNOT GUARANTEE THAT THE STORES YOU VISIT WILL HAVE PENNY ITEMS. THIS APP IS NOT A PRICE SCANNER, it's a Penny Scanner. ***The Penny Scanner's performance is based on the frame rate of your camera on your device. (Which means older devices such as an iPhone 4S and older model iPods/iPads will scan slower using the Penny Scanner than new devices that have considerably better cameras.) *penny finder IS NOT ASSOCIATED, AFFILIATED, SPONSORED BY, OR ENDORSED BY DOLLAR GENERAL.
So slow!

I try to use the app in store and it’s so slow!
A Bug Reporting Bugs
by app reviewer 53783 on 2019/05/18 00:27
I downloaded the app today while at DG. It kept crashing and kicking me out when I searched UPC codes, My store doesn’t have WiFi so I thought it was that, when I got home it wouldn’t let me go on the app the first few times I tried and when I tapped report a bug it kicked me out multiple times. I’m disappointed I can’t use the app and I payed $2.99 for it. I hope it gets fixed soon.
Very Pleased!
by HeatherPorter on 2019/05/16 19:05
Love Love Love!!! Well worth the money!! I made my money back the 1st time I used it!
Worked great when I bought it
by taymanley on 2019/05/16 16:48
Now the penny list won’t load and crashed my iPhone. I had to restart my phone and it’s still not working.
Slow to load - if it does
by Julie.K. in PA on 2019/05/15 14:00
I downloaded this app to help while penny shopping, but have a lot of trouble using it. It’s very slow to load and often gets “stuck” and crashes, or has to be force closed and relaunched. Because of this, it hasn’t been useful during shopping. Bummer. Especially since it is a paid app. :/
Stopped working while I’m shopping
by Foxxylady 3399 on 2019/05/14 16:17
I loved this app till I’m in dollar store this morning looking for deals and it stopped working and sent error message. I’ve contacted customer support about it but it didn’t help me today! Deleted app. Cleared cache reloaded and still won’t work sends error message
Don’t waste your time
by Arkansasfire29 on 2019/05/14 15:31
App use to be a really good app but not anymore app is complete garbage and don’t bother with customer service because there isn’t any
Nice app if it works
by kartchick22 on 2019/05/14 14:43
When the app works it’s awesome. But an error message always comes up and says invalid document and it is just a blank screen. If i pay for an app I would expect it to actually work.
It keeps freezing.
by Polly4101 on 2019/05/14 02:56
Don’t like it
Waste of my money SCAM
by rubydeporter on 2019/05/13 22:58
Can’t find a scanner, can’t contact support, tried joining the Facebook group for help but hasn’t been accepted. Click on report bug and it completely closes the app. I honestly wish I could just get my $3 back because this is seriously the dumbest app I’ve ever bought. Be ware.
Over charged.
by Shedd Wyfe on 2019/05/13 05:15
This app overcharged my card. Charged over a dollar over amount listed
It stopped working
by Thibodaux north on 2019/05/11 13:44
Worked one day, now it wont work...... waste if money
Mad
by wynett92 on 2019/05/10 23:56
So I bought the app and while signing up u have to agree to the terms and it says invalid document!! So I can’t do anything!!
Not great
by becks7171 on 2019/05/10 23:45
Not working at all I only see error on my screen not great
Okay.
by Manderduh on 2019/05/10 17:30
This tool could be helpful, but it crashes constantly and makes me phone run like crap. Kinda upsetting since it’s a paid app.
Freezes
by Btd battles stinks on 2019/04/23 20:19
This app freezes a lot. When it works it works well!!
Good, when it works
by sae1083 on 2019/04/07 01:56
It’s great, when it will work. If very often won’t load, or freezes, and sometimes even freezes your whole phone. Also, be careful that some things may be in the app, but have reset so they will not ring up a penny. And the app is only as good as what’s been put in it by others, so you may find a penny that isn’t in the app.
Don’t work
by Ashley2154! on 2019/03/30 15:56
Since the updates mine has never worked. And I can’t contact anyone about it. Try posting it in Facebook group yet won’t approve my message. Considering I paid money for this app it’s crazy. You need to fix the bugs in your app and have away for people to contact you about issues and problems.
Crashing!!
by Kalana3 on 2019/03/25 02:59
This app started out great but after about a week it crashes all the time. It was a waste of money!!
Worst app on my iPhone
by saver71 on 2019/03/21 15:18
Do not spend your money on this app! It loads to the haul wall and if you want to look at the Penny list then it loads extremely slow or not at all! Waste of money!
Never works anymore
by pknapp14 on 2019/03/19 21:37
I have had this app for about two years.It never works. I would give it 2 stars if it worked.I say that bc anyone can put info in and not have to summit proof.So It’s still a guessing game unless you take the time out to actually learn how to penny shop.
😡😡😡
by uytv svjd on 2019/03/18 15:31
Never works!!!
Love this app when it works
by Liljadedragon on 2019/03/13 14:20
This is a great app to find penny items at the Dollar General. However, it locks up on my phone all the time, does not open OFTEN. I have to restart my phone and other apps make it work. It’s slow working as well. My phone is fully updated and works well with other apps. Needs improvement but when it works it’s great. Something new is it locks up and has to be forcefully shut down when scanning consecutively. Wish this worked better.
This app needs to be fix!
by Prchalpn on 2019/03/13 10:17
Don’t waste your money on this app, it doesn’t work at all. If your going to charge ppl a fee to use your app, then make sure it works or give us a refund.
Was good not now
by pennyshopaddict on 2019/03/12 16:16
Every since the update my app no longer works properly. It keeps freezing up and crashing not what I was hoping for out of this app paying three dollars and then having an update that crashes every time you open the app not worth the time don’t bother before the update though it was a magnificent but I do not recommend it now
Fix asap!!!
by Vicky A.S on 2019/03/09 10:45
Seems like people are still have issues since the update and issues since before the new yr. why hasn’t this been fixed. Mine also started once it asked to be updated. At first it wouldn’t load and then when it did it would freeze after I would scan something. Now it won’t even open the app... Fix this or give us a refund.
Waste of money and time
by angg2012 on 2019/03/08 21:24
This app is a waist of money and time. The scanner doesn’t work. It takes forever to load and the when you scan it freezes. I tried to report “a bug” under my profile and it shuts down the app. This happened not just once but multiple times. I wish I had not wasted my time or money.
Crashes
by We are the Rodgers on 2019/03/08 11:18
I love this app - when it works. However, since the update a few months back it crashes all the time. After it crashes I can’t get it to reload if I’m in a store or out in a rual area, so at those times it’s useless. It also freezes up my phone so nothing else works.
Just loved it
by naresh45 on 2019/03/06 16:23
Great work Josh..
Scanner bug
by chucktowncouponer on 2019/03/05 15:58
I really love this app. But ever since there was an update my scanner will work for two items then glitched out. Sometimes the app completely shuts down. Sometimes it just freezes.
DO NOT BUY App went down hill fast!! Terrible now!
by Terrible company! on 2019/03/05 06:00
I have had this app for a while! It used to work just fine! Now they switched to a new server (so the said) and the app never works! I was suggesting this app to everyone for a while! Bought it for my husband, my daughter and my Mom! Since the update none of us can use it! It either doesn’t load or takes forever to load! Once loaded you can’t get the scanner to work! Useless app! I have tried to contact “support “ which just goes to the Facebook page that they won’t let you post on and will not answer private messages. Wish they would read the reviews, they probably don’t care!
Never works!
by Tm7748701 on 2019/03/04 13:07
This app only worked a couple of times and has never worked again. I’ve tried everything to make it work!
Loved it before the update
by A cfjdehdgjhjggfhgjhjejehfjgjf on 2019/03/04 04:27
Since the last update I've had so many problems with the app. It freezes, won't scan, won't update the penny list and freezes my whole phone. Please fix this! This is the only app I've ever purchased and it's been worth it until recently.
Disappointed
by 1-penny on 2019/02/25 11:37
App is very slow. Most of the time it won’t even load.
App is trash
by Ladyscorpio79 on 2019/02/24 12:35
This is the worst app I have ever paid for. It doesn’t even load. I want a refund. Because this app doesn’t work at all. All it does is load all day. Which pisses me off because I paid for it. If it was free i can’t complain but since I have paid for it. This app is trash. I demand a refund.
New update
by Cas1007 on 2019/02/23 22:20
The new update has made the app freeze constantly, I can’t even scan items.
Doesn’t work lately
by Trista25 on 2019/02/23 14:52
Worked great when I got it. Did everything I was told. Re downloaded it, did every update. Scanner still is slow to load and works maybe half the time. For a app you pay for it’s definitely not working how it should! Me and my 2 sisters are having the same problem. But it’s great on the rare occasion it works.
Worked great for a while
by Cher06 on 2019/02/20 20:54
I was loving this app at first then something happened and it loads to the haul page but when u clock penny list it won’t come up. It keeps loading and loading and loading and never comes up. I have tried shutting the phone off and back on. Tried going through the App Store and going into my purchases and loading. It did load it that time but just went in to see if it would load again and got the same thing. This need to be fixed some how. Have had dozens of people having the same issues
Not working
by KSSmith1957 on 2019/02/19 21:31
Since the last update the penny list does not load making the app useless. The developer’s response is “they are aware of the problem and are working to fix it”. That was weeks ago and it’s still not resolved.
Won't open.
by Sunshine KYgirl on 2019/02/19 21:10
I've tried All Day to open the app on my phone. It just continues to update haul posts. I can't use this and it's very frustrating.

PLEASE FIX
by TankGirl89 on 2019/02/19 17:17
Works great and has been. But for the past week it has not been loading. All it does it think. Please fix. I have an Apple phone.

😪
by Slinkamadinker on 2019/02/19 00:15
My app hasn’t worked for weeks now. Used to be the best app ever. Hope it gets fixed ASAP
Don’t waste your money
by K~n~C on 2019/02/16 02:14
I never write reviews but since I actually spent money on this app I thought maybe I could prevent someone else from wasting their money by purchasing an app meant to help save money. This app worked the first few days after I purchased. It hasn't worked in over 3 weeks now! Don't even waste time in looking for someone to help you fix the problem because that won't happen. Sad. Truly sad.
Love app but have problems opening it
by klgmmm77 on 2019/02/15 22:46
Love this app but it needs a update just got it 2 weeks ago takes forever to open if I can get it too have uninstalled and reinstalled still does it Please fix ASAP
Great app, but new loading issues
by Dickballs67642 on 2019/02/15 17:19
Love the app, used to use it all the time, but now the Penny List won’t load probably 90% of the time. Haul wall is fine, loads quickly as usual. I’ve reinstalled, cleared other apps, nothing is helping and it’s becoming very frustrating, to the point I can’t even use it as a tool in stores anymore. I can’t even get it to load at home most of the time to add or verify items anymore. Nothing has changed on my end, so not sure what’s happening.
Junk finder
by Hooks21 on 2019/02/10 19:24
First off... I want my money back. Secondly, only buy this app if you want to find those junk items. Like that weird snow globe, or glasses with a mustache. You know that weird stuff you never wanted or needed. Maybe glow in the dark planet stickers is your penny bargain you wanted, but not me.
What happened to this app?
by BoNBull on 2019/02/10 08:38
I loved this app. It did work well. Now the penny list won’t load. I’ve waited over 5 minutes and it is still circling the drain. It is useless. Once it is fixed I’ll revise my review until then thumbs down👎 save your money don’t buy.
List will not load
by ditmore69 on 2019/02/09 19:49
Nothing but trouble since the last update. The app will not load the penny list. Just keeps buffering over and over. I’ve tried everything. Uninstalling and reinstalling. It’s totally useless now. This app will not allow me to contact customer support services either.
Penny list won’t load, unreliable now
by hhfggdshjj on 2019/02/08 17:29
I used to LOVE this app!! Since the latest “upgrade” the penny list takes forever to load or it won’t load at all. Have tried uninstalling and reinstalling but nothing has helped. You used to be able to comment on people’s haul wall posts, but they have taken that option away. Also, since the upgrade I have purchased several items that the app confirms are a penny but the item is full price and vise versa, items that used to be listed as a penny, and still are a penny, do not show up on the app as being a penny. I hope the developers will fix the glitches soon or go back to how it was before. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it...
Penny list won’t load

WAS worth the money
by Toni8675309 on 2019/01/31 03:59
Before this new update, it was totally worth the money but now I can’t get the list to load. I’ve opened the app before I went to bed, and waited until I woke up before closing the app, still never loaded. I’ve even tried uninstalling and reinstalling, didn’t work either. Please fix this issue!

For some reason the penny list isn’t loading. I waiting 3 minutes and still didn’t load. I’ve uninstalled it and reinstalled it and nothing.
Needs Work
by Diary of a Mad Chef on 2019/01/07 02:13
CONSTANTLY crashes my phone. It’s crazy. When in the store, it sometimes refuses to load. There is no actual support page as it takes you to the penny finder FB page.
Not worth it
by n653679653 on 2018/12/29 13:05
This app ONLY relies on the members that post a picture of their Penny find. And if you do find a penny item by the time you get to the store, it will be gone. Because the users on here are greedy and will buy up all of the penny items. Example one person found Hostess For one penny and she bought over 50 boxes. A full shopping cart. The Penny Finder is very very limited depending on your location and how the appearance of the store and workers are. I Find a simple Google search will give you the same information as this PAID App will give you. Now on the other hand, yes you can find and get a penny deal from using this app. Only if another person uploads their find and shares that information with you
No “Favorites”
by Nkygrammy on 2018/12/06 15:17
I like this app except for the quote “Penny list”. I have 16,889 entries and no way to organize them. It says to save things to my “favorites”, but there’s no “favorites” on there. It makes the Penny list pretty useless. I tried to contact them but the form to fill out won’t work. When it ask you for the name of the app it only gives you the option of using numbers. It’s very frustrating. Also when I click on “beginner video“ or “contact support”, it takes me to Facebook. The actual scanner works good, But the “Penny list” and the “Haul wall” don’t offer me any more than I can get from a Facebook group.(I still have to do all my own organizing)
Awesome!
by Kcorl3 on 2018/12/01 19:24
I seriously never rate apps, and I definitely NEVER buy apps either, but this one is so so worth it. It has saved me SO much money, and is awesome when you’re in the store and need to quickly find out if an item is a penny or not. I love the UPC scanner, easy to use. This app has definitely already paid for itself!
Love this app but..
by sharon491 on 2018/11/26 13:59
I absolutely love this app , but I realized I have been charged monthly for it for several months instead of the one time fee. I can’t seem to figure out how to get help with this issue. Please help!
No Scanner
by loveDGS on 2018/11/21 16:00
I purchased this application a few days ago & after downloading found out there is no scanner. I don’t know if I should delete it and download it again. But I don’t want to be charged again either.

Unhappy to be scammed
by zbuggzie on 2018/10/07 17:35
I am very unhappy with this app and it’s claimed that you can find penny’s every where this simply is not true. It is based on which state you live in on weather you will get anything or not. In the state I live you will not find anything if you live on the east coast you might find things but not much elsewhere. I am so I’m happy I would like to ask for my money back because it is not worth it it’s a scam.
Not working
by Zanemrose on 2018/09/20 04:27
Have not been able to contact support at all. Can’t seem to find a way to. This app hasn’t worked on my phone once. Never loads right or just freezes and closes.
Doesn’t work
by M.maurer on 2018/09/05 20:42
Every item I scan is not in the system and I got one item today that WAS a penny yet like I said not in the app.... wish I could have my money back would help a lot if it actually worked... only reason I gave it 1 star is because I couldn’t give it 0

Penny list won’t load
by Nickel3542 on 2018/08/18 03:09
Love the haul wall, have had the app for two days and still my penny list won’t load and I can’t use the scanner, very frustrated with that!
Best money ever spent
by gnest1 on 2018/08/17 01:01
I downloaded this on a whim in store, after I saw a massive clearance section.. I found over $100 worth of items and paid .07. It paid for itself the first use!! Cant wait to be apart of the family!
Don’t waste your money or time.
by college_student18 on 2018/08/16 18:51
This app is worthless. I tried to use it to find penny items at the store and ended up paying full price after it told me it was a penny item. So I paid money for this app and then I tried it out and ended up paying full price for something this app told me was a penny.
Not worth $2.99
by Here is the solution for it on 2018/08/14 19:23
This app is not worth the $2.99 I paid. I would say $0.99. It does have a huge list of penny items. I think around 11000+ is what the list said. However, many of the items are repeats. Meaning they the same item is on the list multiple times. That just inflates the list number. The list is not up to date. You’re better off following a penny hashtag if you’re looking for new items. That being said. This app does have a convenient built in scanner which helps confirm older items you may come across in store. Of course again the drawback is if you seen a new item go a penny online and use the scanner to confirm. It will not be up to date because of the list. Another annoyance is it makes you create a account. A unnecessary step for purchasing a app with one intention which is penny items. Aside from creating a account they have a face book group which has all the updated pics. Which for those of us that don’t use face book it’s a waste. They show pics of new items from their “haul” but no upcs or anything valuable to help people in the app. It’s just bragging. The list isn’t updated so what’s the point. This app is more like a paid way to lure you into a face book group. I’ll use the list but again it is not worth the $2.99.
Stole my money
by samcas1 on 2018/08/14 03:39
I bought the app and was never allowed to register. Just wasted $2.99!
New to this , can’t find anything a penny
by Alysiaaaa💓 on 2018/08/12 01:28
How do you know what to look for ?
1st Day
by Ghfhjhdkydmvdyifdkgdkhfdhfdkh on 2018/06/23 01:17
Wow. So. I was skeptical at first and I was hesitant in buying this app. Well. I tried it out, and at my first store, I got about 14 items. I do have one suggestion thought. Someone else mentioned having the list organized into categories. This would be extremely helpful. No one wants to scroll through over 3000 items and the scan and check method can get tiresome. Still. Awesome app.
Waisted my money
by coupon_lady on 2018/06/22 15:08
The app says 1 to download but charged me over 2 dollars. How and why would you do that? I have not found enough penny items to even pay for this app. I look like a fool scanning stuff in the store for hours. The employees start to stare at you. This app NEVER upgrades. Will ever get any better? Waisted my money.
Don’t do it
by vbbnbvbjkbghhjnnnmvnlv mhkghgh on 2018/05/01 18:44
I was kicked out of my store because of scanning. I was completely mortified.

This is by far the greatest app ever. Thank you for helping families save money and find great deals. The app is user friendly. Great job for keeping it up to date.
Pure excitement
by pdteat on 2018/04/13 04:08
I am a mom of seven and wife of one. This app rocks!! It actually allows me to have a bit of “me” time and going looking for awesome steals. It helps financially as well. App works wonderful and communication among other app users is a huge plus!!
Great app

I don't purchase many apps, but I figured this one was worth a try. It only took one penny find to pay for itself. While I'm not an avid penny shopper, it's nice to confirm a possible penny item BEFORE I check out. It's really a cool app that I wouldn't want to penny shop without. Anyone who plans to invest the time in penny shopping should invest in the app--small price, big payoff. Highly recommend.

I love this app! It’s very easy to navigate! And very fun to use too!! I check it everyday!
Penny finder is awesome and worth the $1.99
by IJB95 on 2018/04/12 19:55
This app is awesome. It’s so exciting when you find an item for a penny. I like that I can scan the item and the app lets me know if it’s a penny item. I haven’t had the app for long but have already gotten a few penny items! It’s definitely worth the $1.99!!!
Worth Every Penny!!!
by Shae Walls on 2018/04/12 13:02
This is the ONLY penny app that has saved me and my family hundreds!!! It is super easy to use when in store with the scanner provided in app! There are also pictures of the item just match the barcode that is also provided! Some stores do not have service so make sure you REFRESH before entering. Out of the 15 stores I shop at there is only one store that does not have service!!! This is absolutely worth purchasing!!!
Love It
by Sheilaw1977 on 2018/04/12 12:55
Even though I haven’t found a lot of penny items I still love it,I’m always looking to see what people post and wishing I could find all the awesome stuff everyone finds thanks
Very well worth it!!
by Bayla0116 on 2018/04/12 11:30
Very well worth the money! Easy to navigate and very user friendly! The 1.99 fee doesn’t touch the savings you’ll get! Use it once and you’ll get your money’s worth!!! The only issue I’ve came across is I switched from android to apple and the refreshing is a bit slow but could be the phone not the app. Great work to the developer!! ☺️
Awesome!
by Sandy swindler on 2018/04/12 11:26
Never knew about all the things you could buy for a penny and this app makes it so simple!! Well worth the 2 dollars!
Penny Finder
by Archerymom on 2018/04/12 10:29
Love this app. It helps me find products that you would usually find at full price for just pennies. Help save me money especially when you have 2 kids in college and 1 in high school.
Penny Finder is Amazing!
by xX SuPaM4N Xx on 2018/04/12 04:34
I downloaded this app not knowing exactly what it was for, but within a few days I was already finding things for 1 cent! This app has definitely paid for itself 100x over based on all of the items I have found using this app.
Totally worth the price ❤️ this app
by Amanda Tallent Brock on 2018/04/10 22:08
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!
Love It - Except For 2 Things!
by Fitandflair on 2018/04/10 23:57
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.
Good App!
by Serowski on 2018/04/11 01:41
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!
2 dolla.... will make you holla...from PURE EXCITEMENT!
by Itsmedudes on 2017/09/09 01:56
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!❤️
Penny items
by Batgal85 on 2017/10/31 01:42
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.
Family Fun!
by Samk.1283 on 2018/04/11 12:29
This app is incredible and worth its weight in gold! My kids can use it with ease! Since becoming disabled and having 3 kids we try to have fun and reward them when we can. Now our activity is penny shopping! I put the app on my phone and an extra phone we had for my kids to shop with! I even got my mom to get the app and now she goes with us! It’s fun for the whole family! We also give away a lot of the items we get so it’s also a great way to teach my kids charity! We truly love it!!! P.S. We love that it vibrates when you find a match! Makes it that much more exciting!!!
Awesome resource!
by Rampant5 on 2018/04/11 13:55
I was a bit skeptical, but it turns out that any trepidation I had was unfounded... this app is great! It’s really helped me get in the penny finding game, and it’s so exciting when you find something and the phone buzzes and that green box pops up! I’ve even added a few penny items already. Only one suggestion... instead of deleting ymmv pennies, how about leaving them in the app? You can see how many people verified that they got it for a penny and how many people flagged the item. It might be valuable to know the item might be a penny for you, and could open up a whole new world of hunting!
Miss out if useera don't upload items
by couponervt on 2017/09/13 00:00
If you want some old penny items, this app can be helpful but you will never get a new item! This app only works if app buyers upload their confirmed penny items! Many times I've had new penny items in my hand but after scanning in the app it tells me "No" only because no one has uploaded it! So....for the new items it's not helpful, and if users don't upload this app will never be successful. I paid a 1.99 to keep this app in business by uploading what I find, and to hope others upload their finds?! However I have found older penny items i.e., pink dot, gray star f16 but the top groups are more helpful for new items. We need more users for a successful app as well as a price check scanner for regular priced items.
Penny list won’t load, unreliable now
by hhfggdshjj on 2019/02/08 17:29
I used to LOVE this app!! Since the latest “upgrade” the penny list takes forever to load or it won’t load at all. Have tried uninstalling and reinstalling but nothing has helped. You used to be able to comment on people’s haul wall posts, but they have taken that option away. Also, since the upgrade I have purchased several items that the app confirms are a penny but the item is full price and vise versa, items that used to be listed as a penny, and still are a penny, do not show up on the app as being a penny. I hope the developers will fix the glitches soon or go back to how it was before. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it...
Love it By: Unique
by Unique66 on 2017/09/10 19:16
I was hesitant on spending the $1.99 for this app and wasn't sure if it really worked. I tried penny apps before this one that was not accurate. When I purchased this app omg best app ever. I found so many penny item. I got Christmas toys, socks, shoes, home supplies, food, and last but not least as seen on Tv items🙌🏽. I know a lot of people say why penny shop. It's about getting the good deals on top of the excitement you feel when you find an item. I love penny shopping and this was the best $1.99 I've ever spend. Now I'm off to penny shop. Trust me this app will not disappoint you.
No “Favorites”
by Nkygrammy on 2018/12/06 15:17
I like this app except for the quote “Penny list”. I have 16,889 entries and no way to organize them. It says to save things to my “favorites”, but there’s no “favorites” on there. It makes the Penny list pretty useless. I tried to contact them but the form to fill out won’t work. When it ask you for the name of the app it only gives you the option of using numbers. It’s very frustrating. Also when I click on “beginner video“ or “contact support”, it takes me to Facebook. The actual scanner works good, But the “Penny list” and the “Haul wall” don’t offer me any more than I can get from a Facebook group.(I still have to do all my own organizing)
Loving good friends, good deals and fun. It’s a blessing to be a blessing ❤️
by Pooter love on 2017/11/01 03:08
I love this group because of the people. Since I have been in this group I find myself searching through my Facebook post just to see what everyone is posting and doing. The idea of no drama is awesome. Since I can’t work I now use penny finder as a way of occupying my time and also find great deals for my family and others. It can be addicting, however I don’t mind because it’s a great app once you learn to use it properly. Thanks penny finder for creating this for people like me.
Worked great for a while
by Cher06 on 2019/02/20 20:54
I was loving this app at first then something happened and it loads to the haul page but when u clock penny list it won’t come up. It keeps loading and loading and loading and never comes up. I have tried shutting the phone off and back on. Tried going through the App Store and going into my purchases and loading. It did load it that time but just went in to see if it would load again and got the same thing. This need to be fixed some how. Have had dozens of people having the same issues
Best Penny Shopping Resource Available
by Livin La Vida Broka on 2018/04/11 11:43
This is by far the best penny shopping resource available. It is newbie friendly. Using the app removes a lot of the trial and error with penny shopping at Dollar General. The scanning feature within the app saves so much time when in store. The penny list Is compromised of penny finds submitted by users. The app developers are very active and diligently monitor the database to keep it as accurate as possible. I have recommended this app to so many of my penny shopping friends and we all agree it is well worth the cost.
Pros and Cons
by LilKrisss on 2017/09/09 02:36
I am glad I downloaded the app, it has helped me confirm a few things, however the downside to that is that with the older items not being loaded it doesn't help confirm them. So I am hunting through screenshots or FB, which takes a lot of time! I do my best to add items, but that is time consuming for someone not getting paid.. hint hint lol The other pro and probably one of the things I like most, beside seeing Match Found!!! The app will work in the stores if you are logged in, so with no signal to check FB pages, I can still scan items.. great job with that! Thanks!!
Absolutely Love
by Mrs Moma Claus on 2018/04/10 23:28
I love this app. It makes penny shopping so much easier for me. The app works even if you have no signal in a store just by scanning the item. I have been using it for several months and have never had any issues. I study the haul wall and the penny list to make sure I am aware of what penny items are out there. I have actually been able to locate more penny items then a friend of mine that has been penny shopping longer because she doesn’t have the app. If you penny shop, you need this app.
Life changing
by finding and searching join me on 2017/10/29 16:27
I love this app. I enjoy looking for things others have found and enjoy posting what I have found in return, they were so helpful and nice when I had any troubles with app. I have suggested this app to several others and I have heard from them nothing but good things. Every once In awhile you will scan something that ain’t the same as what it says or you want find it in your store don’t give up, you will find more than you want and that is a promise, this app is worth buying
Overall Great App
by RachelPatt on 2017/10/28 20:29
I have had this app for a while. It has improved so much over time. I love the feature of being able to add favorites. I also love that the penny items have to be verified by other users so you can see how many people it has been a penny for and how many have said it was full price. One thing that could be fixed is that lately I’ve noticed that when scrolling the screen will freeze every now and then for a few seconds before it scrolls.
Not worth it
by n653679653 on 2018/12/29 13:05
This app ONLY relies on the members that post a picture of their Penny find. And if you do find a penny item by the time you get to the store, it will be gone. Because the users on here are greedy and will buy up all of the penny items. Example one person found Hostess For one penny and she bought over 50 boxes. A full shopping cart. The Penny Finder is very very limited depending on your location and how the appearance of the store and workers are. I Find a simple Google search will give you the same information as this PAID App will give you. Now on the other hand, yes you can find and get a penny deal from using this app. Only if another person uploads their find and shares that information with you
Hidden Gem!!! ❤️
by Blessed In PA on 2018/04/10 22:07
I’ve been out of work and without a paycheck (still fighting for it) since October 2017 due to a disability. I stumbled upon this App while looking for ways to spend less and save more. I was skeptical at first since it was $1.99. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine it would be so great!!! It has been a blessing to me. I have MORE than made $1.99 back. I can’t thank you enough! I may not hit a lot of things at one time but what I have found (such as toothpaste etc) has helped me a ton.

DO NOT BUY App went down hill fast!! Terrible now!
by Terrible company! on 2019/03/05 06:00
I have had this app for a while! It used to work just fine! Now they switched to a new server (so the said) and the app never works! I was suggesting this app to everyone for a while! Bought it for my husband, my daughter and my Mom! Since the update none of us can use it! It either doesn’t load or takes forever to load! Once loaded you can’t get the scanner to work! Useless app! I have tried to contact “support “ which just goes to the Facebook page that they won’t let you post on and will not answer private messages. Wish they would read the reviews, they probably don’t care!
Seasoned Penny Shopper Loves this APP!!!!
by couponchix on 2018/03/19 01:53
I have been Penny shopping for probably about four years now and I absolutely love this app it has saved me so time!!!!!!sometimes I would pass things up because I wasn't sure if it was a penny item and with this app I can verify!! The only complaint I have is I wish I would of had this app four years ago when I started penny shopping!!! You will not be disappointed if you buy this App!!!!!!!!!!
BEST THING SINCE SLICED BREAD!
by Kmartaholic on 2018/04/11 09:04
I bought this app about a month ago, and it has helped me find over 100 penny items!! It is very user friendly (super easy to utilize)! I love seeing everyone’s penny hauls on the haul wall! I love that we can scan an item to see if it is a penny, and I love that you can type in a brand or product name to quickly find what you are searching for! Definitely worth the money spent! I have made that back in pennies!!
Love this app when it works
by Liljadedragon on 2019/03/13 14:20
This is a great app to find penny items at the Dollar General. However, it locks up on my phone all the time, does not open OFTEN. I have to restart my phone and other apps make it work. It’s slow working as well. My phone is fully updated and works well with other apps. Needs improvement but when it works it’s great. Something new is it locks up and has to be forcefully shut down when scanning consecutively. Wish this worked better.
Great app, but new loading issues
by Dickballs67642 on 2019/02/15 17:19
Love the app, used to use it all the time, but now the Penny List won’t load probably 90% of the time. Haul wall is fine, loads quickly as usual. I’ve reinstalled, cleared other apps, nothing is helping and it’s becoming very frustrating, to the point I can’t even use it as a tool in stores anymore. I can’t even get it to load at home most of the time to add or verify items anymore. Nothing has changed on my end, so not sure what’s happening.

The best app ever!!!!
by padytnyy on 2017/09/11 16:05
I have searched before apps and Facebook groups for Dollar General penny finds and this trumps them all. I love this app the best money I've ever spent! It's an addiction that is so awesome... I've found things for my granddaughter that will last a long time - clothes, socks, hair bows etc. This app is unlike any other - so glad I took the chance that I recommended my sister for it. :-)
Loving it!
by Shandellynn on 2017/09/11 01:03
I just downloaded PF last week and started looking for Pennies. With the help of this app I have been able to find roughly 30 items this past week! I didn't even know what Pennies were before then. Thanks PF for being here to help keep things straight! Having the list and being able to scan barcodes is a tremendous help!
Awesome App!!!!!
by littleman4314 on 2017/10/31 16:36
This is the most amazing app I have ever used there’s a scanner on it to scan barcodes it tells you all the penny items so you’re not having to scan every item in the store it is amazing it is so worth buying I would’ve paid way more for this app I love it and I use every single week thank you so much for creating this app!!!!!
Fantastic app!
by shrtstopshrty on 2018/04/11 00:44
This app is great! The scanner helps you figure out whether an item is a penny item or not without having to scroll though the penny list. I’ve already gotten over $75 worth of items for about .50 cents total! This app has already paid for itself and is well worth the one time $1.99 fee!
1st Day
by Ghfhjhdkydmvdyifdkgdkhfdhfdkh on 2018/06/23 01:17
Wow. So. I was skeptical at first and I was hesitant in buying this app. Well. I tried it out, and at my first store, I got about 14 items. I do have one suggestion thought. Someone else mentioned having the list organized into categories. This would be extremely helpful. No one wants to scroll through over 3000 items and the scan and check method can get tiresome. Still. Awesome app.
Use in a pinch
by April31lynn on 2017/10/28 11:48
I bought the penny app when I was new to penny shopping. I loved the idea. It has worked great for me not one item that’s come ups Penny has scanned different at the register. My only concern is using it makes my poor phone die quicker. So I tend to use photos and then the app in a pinch. (My phone dying might be a phone issue who knows). Other then that no issues or concerns. It’s a great app!
Awesome!
by Kcorl3 on 2018/12/01 19:24
I seriously never rate apps, and I definitely NEVER buy apps either, but this one is so so worth it. It has saved me SO much money, and is awesome when you’re in the store and need to quickly find out if an item is a penny or not. I love the UPC scanner, easy to use. This app has definitely already paid for itself!
Love it!!
by Cal070613$ on 2017/09/10 00:18
I use this app every time I go into any DG. I review the list before I go but it's still so great to have when I can't remember for sure what a particular item is that is marked down. Able to use when I don't have signal and have only had trouble loading maybe two or three times at most.
Definitely worth buying!
by lenab11111 on 2017/09/09 19:34
I don't ever buy apps but this one was definitely worth it it's easy to follow and get started! Love that you don't have to have service to use it because my stores don't have service unless your beside the front door! Download this and get to finding those penny items!!
You will LOVE to use this app!!
by Saving seeker gma on 2017/10/31 01:31
The Penny Finder app is like solid gold!! As soon as I downloaded the app and used it at my first Dollar General, I found several penny items! It doesn't cost much and the app basically pays for itself. Thanks to Penny Finder I was able to put together Halloween treat bags for my grandkids and have stocking stuffers and presents for my kids & grandkids!
Def worth it
by Kd2095 on 2018/04/11 20:00
I waited a while to actually purchase this app. Just followed the groups in hope to find pennies... once I decided to buy the app it made things so much easier ! I could verify that what I was seeing in the group matched in the app with the scanner and I was able to successfully find pennies !
Love this app!
by JLJ1022 on 2017/10/31 06:56
This app has been an awesome, easy to use, and fun tool that has helped me find some good deals at my local DG! I also think that the videos are a helpful item included. I am so thankful for the fellow shopper who told me about it in the clearance section when I was shopping recently!!! A penny saved/found is a penny earned!!!
Very real!!
by Brandimade on 2018/04/11 11:43
At first I thought this wasn’t real because I couldn’t find anything my first visit. I tried again when a new penny list posted and I found many items! Literally these items were just a penny and no tax! I had no problem completing the purchase
Love it
by Work24/7 on 2017/10/30 16:51
Ever since I found this app. Me, my mom, and my sister spend every Tuesday together. Usually I work all week and weekend since I have 2 jobs. But now I make sure I have Tuesday’s off so I can spend time with my mom so we can go shopping together. Love this app and the time it gives me to spend with my mom.
Love it!
by hpresnell2010 on 2017/09/18 05:37
I love, love, love this app!!! It helps to take away the anxiety of knowing for sure if something is a penny item. It really helped me to better understand how to penny shop. In my opinion well worth the money! My only suggestion is that on the penny list the items r listed from newest to oldest items listed/found.
My lucky Penny ❤️
by alrk925 on 2018/04/11 17:21
I was so overwhelmed by fb groups and the millions of comments that I just gave up. Until I seen a comment about Penny finder. This has helped me tremendously and saved me lots of time that I need for my children. I use to leave pennies on the ground when I seen them. Not any more. This is the best app that I own.
Penny finder is awesome and worth the $1.99
by IJB95 on 2018/04/12 19:55
This app is awesome. It’s so exciting when you find an item for a penny. I like that I can scan the item and the app lets me know if it’s a penny item. I haven’t had the app for long but have already gotten a few penny items! It’s definitely worth the $1.99!!!
Can’t penny shop without it!!
by Skifreakdawn on 2018/04/10 22:09
I am head over heels in love with this app!! It was totally worth the $1.99 ten times over! I have found so many penny items that I have been able to confirm with this app before going to the register! My go to app for penny shopping hands down!!
Penny finder
by saramay1123 on 2017/10/29 11:41
I was hesitant at first to purchase the app. But I made my money back with in the first day of using it. It is very user friendly, as so my dad can use it. My whole family has purchased the app. It makes it easier to find pennies especially if you are unsure. Thanks for an amazing app!
Penny Finder is Amazing!
by xX SuPaM4N Xx on 2018/04/12 04:34
I downloaded this app not knowing exactly what it was for, but within a few days I was already finding things for 1 cent! This app has definitely paid for itself 100x over based on all of the items I have found using this app.
Super helpful
by twilyteeys on 2017/09/11 14:50
This app is so useful when you are searching for pennied out items. Being able to actually see what these items look like and having other users confirm that they are only a penny is extremely helpful.
Love this app!!!
by Gizmo-and-Opie on 2018/04/11 00:47
I downloaded this app about 6 weeks ago and after my first trip to the store it more than paid for itself. I would and have recommend this app. My friend downloaded it and loves it just as much as I do. Well worth the money and it's a fun "sport" lol

Description
Welcome to penny finder! Where like-minded, savings savvy, penny pinching people come to find the latest and greatest penny finds from Dollar General*! WE NOW HAVE OVER 3700+ VERIFIED PENNY ITEMS AND COUNTING! Join the THOUSANDS of other Penny Finders! penny finder crowdsources information from our users and catalogs items into a database...AKA we put them in a nice searchable table! You can: - Scan a barcode and the app will tell you if an item is a penny based on other user's discoveries (This app is not a Price Scanner, it's a Penny Scanner) - OFFLINE MODE: Our app will still work even if you have no internet, just make sure you have downloaded the list at least once. - Add your own Penny Items to the list using our Penny Scanner! - Post your amazing finds on our Haul Wall! - Most Recent Penny Finds are highlighted in green and at the top - You can flag penny items that you know are full price to have them removed. - You can add Penny Items to your favorites for quick viewing later. WHAT WE ASSUME YOU KNOW BEFORE YOU DOWNLOAD: We assume that you know what penny items are. We assume you know what store this app is for. We assume that you know that UPC codes are very important and critical to finding the correct penny items. (you shouldn't penny shop based off only images). WE CANNOT GUARANTEE THAT THE STORES YOU VISIT WILL HAVE PENNY ITEMS. THIS APP IS NOT A PRICE SCANNER, it's a Penny Scanner. ***The Penny Scanner's performance is based on the frame rate of your camera on your device. (Which means older devices such as an iPhone 4S and older model iPods/iPads will scan slower using the Penny Scanner than new devices that have considerably better cameras.) *penny finder IS NOT ASSOCIATED, AFFILIATED, SPONSORED BY, OR ENDORSED BY DOLLAR GENERAL.
So slow!
by emmg78 on 2019/05/18 00:54
I try to use the app in store and it’s so slow!
A Bug Reporting Bugs
by app reviewer 53783 on 2019/05/18 00:27
I downloaded the app today while at DG. It kept crashing and kicking me out when I searched UPC codes, My store doesn’t have WiFi so I thought it was that, when I got home it wouldn’t let me go on the app the first few times I tried and when I tapped report a bug it kicked me out multiple times. I’m disappointed I can’t use the app and I payed $2.99 for it. I hope it gets fixed soon.
Very Pleased!
by HeatherPorter on 2019/05/16 19:05
Love Love Love!!! Well worth the money!! I made my money back the 1st time I used it!
Worked great when I bought it
by taymanley on 2019/05/16 16:48
Now the penny list won’t load and crashed my iPhone. I had to restart my phone and it’s still not working.
Slow to load - if it does
by Julie.K. in PA on 2019/05/15 14:00
I downloaded this app to help while penny shopping, but have a lot of trouble using it. It’s very slow to load and often gets “stuck” and crashes, or has to be force closed and relaunched. Because of this, it hasn’t been useful during shopping. Bummer. Especially since it is a paid app. :/
Stopped working while I’m shopping
by Foxxylady 3399 on 2019/05/14 16:17
I loved this app till I’m in dollar store this morning looking for deals and it stopped working and sent error message. I’ve contacted customer support about it but it didn’t help me today! Deleted app. Cleared cache reloaded and still won’t work sends error message
Don’t waste your time
by Arkansasfire29 on 2019/05/14 15:31
App use to be a really good app but not anymore app is complete garbage and don’t bother with customer service because there isn’t any
Nice app if it works
by kartchick22 on 2019/05/14 14:43
When the app works it’s awesome. But an error message always comes up and says invalid document and it is just a blank screen. If i pay for an app I would expect it to actually work.
It keeps freezing.
by Polly4101 on 2019/05/14 02:56
Don’t like it
Waste of my money SCAM
by rubydeporter on 2019/05/13 22:58
Can’t find a scanner, can’t contact support, tried joining the Facebook group for help but hasn’t been accepted. Click on report bug and it completely closes the app. I honestly wish I could just get my $3 back because this is seriously the dumbest app I’ve ever bought. Be ware.
Over charged.
by Shedd Wyfe on 2019/05/13 05:15
This app overcharged my card. Charged over a dollar over amount listed
It stopped working
by Thibodaux north on 2019/05/11 13:44
Worked one day, now it wont work...... waste if money
Mad
by wynett92 on 2019/05/10 23:56
So I bought the app and while signing up u have to agree to the terms and it says invalid document!! So I can’t do anything!!
Not great
by becks7171 on 2019/05/10 23:45
Not working at all I only see error on my screen not great
Okay.
by Manderduh on 2019/05/10 17:30
This tool could be helpful, but it crashes constantly and makes me phone run like crap. Kinda upsetting since it’s a paid app.
Freezes
by Btd battles stinks on 2019/04/23 20:19
This app freezes a lot. When it works it works well!!
Good, when it works
by sae1083 on 2019/04/07 01:56
It’s great, when it will work. If very often won’t load, or freezes, and sometimes even freezes your whole phone. Also, be careful that some things may be in the app, but have reset so they will not ring up a penny. And the app is only as good as what’s been put in it by others, so you may find a penny that isn’t in the app.
Don’t work
by Ashley2154! on 2019/03/30 15:56
Since the updates mine has never worked. And I can’t contact anyone about it. Try posting it in Facebook group yet won’t approve my message. Considering I paid money for this app it’s crazy. You need to fix the bugs in your app and have away for people to contact you about issues and problems.
Crashing!!
by Kalana3 on 2019/03/25 02:59
This app started out great but after about a week it crashes all the time. It was a waste of money!!
Worst app on my iPhone
by saver71 on 2019/03/21 15:18
Do not spend your money on this app! It loads to the haul wall and if you want to look at the Penny list then it loads extremely slow or not at all! Waste of money!
Never works anymore
by pknapp14 on 2019/03/19 21:37
I have had this app for about two years.It never works. I would give it 2 stars if it worked.I say that bc anyone can put info in and not have to summit proof.So It’s still a guessing game unless you take the time out to actually learn how to penny shop.
😡😡😡
by uytv svjd on 2019/03/18 15:31
Never works!!!
Love this app when it works
by Liljadedragon on 2019/03/13 14:20
This is a great app to find penny items at the Dollar General. However, it locks up on my phone all the time, does not open OFTEN. I have to restart my phone and other apps make it work. It’s slow working as well. My phone is fully updated and works well with other apps. Needs improvement but when it works it’s great. Something new is it locks up and has to be forcefully shut down when scanning consecutively. Wish this worked better.
This app needs to be fix!
by Prchalpn on 2019/03/13 10:17
Don’t waste your money on this app, it doesn’t work at all. If your going to charge ppl a fee to use your app, then make sure it works or give us a refund.
Was good not now
by pennyshopaddict on 2019/03/12 16:16
Every since the update my app no longer works properly. It keeps freezing up and crashing not what I was hoping for out of this app paying three dollars and then having an update that crashes every time you open the app not worth the time don’t bother before the update though it was a magnificent but I do not recommend it now
Fix asap!!!
by Vicky A.S on 2019/03/09 10:45
Seems like people are still have issues since the update and issues since before the new yr. why hasn’t this been fixed. Mine also started once it asked to be updated. At first it wouldn’t load and then when it did it would freeze after I would scan something. Now it won’t even open the app... Fix this or give us a refund.
Waste of money and time
by angg2012 on 2019/03/08 21:24
This app is a waist of money and time. The scanner doesn’t work. It takes forever to load and the when you scan it freezes. I tried to report “a bug” under my profile and it shuts down the app. This happened not just once but multiple times. I wish I had not wasted my time or money.
Crashes
by We are the Rodgers on 2019/03/08 11:18
I love this app - when it works. However, since the update a few months back it crashes all the time. After it crashes I can’t get it to reload if I’m in a store or out in a rual area, so at those times it’s useless. It also freezes up my phone so nothing else works.
Just loved it
by naresh45 on 2019/03/06 16:23
Great work Josh..
Scanner bug
by chucktowncouponer on 2019/03/05 15:58
I really love this app. But ever since there was an update my scanner will work for two items then glitched out. Sometimes the app completely shuts down. Sometimes it just freezes.
DO NOT BUY App went down hill fast!! Terrible now!
by Terrible company! on 2019/03/05 06:00
I have had this app for a while! It used to work just fine! Now they switched to a new server (so the said) and the app never works! I was suggesting this app to everyone for a while! Bought it for my husband, my daughter and my Mom! Since the update none of us can use it! It either doesn’t load or takes forever to load! Once loaded you can’t get the scanner to work! Useless app! I have tried to contact “support “ which just goes to the Facebook page that they won’t let you post on and will not answer private messages. Wish they would read the reviews, they probably don’t care!
Never works!
by Tm7748701 on 2019/03/04 13:07
This app only worked a couple of times and has never worked again. I’ve tried everything to make it work!
Loved it before the update
by A cfjdehdgjhjggfhgjhjejehfjgjf on 2019/03/04 04:27
Since the last update I've had so many problems with the app. It freezes, won't scan, won't update the penny list and freezes my whole phone. Please fix this! This is the only app I've ever purchased and it's been worth it until recently.
Disappointed
by 1-penny on 2019/02/25 11:37
App is very slow. Most of the time it won’t even load.
App is trash
by Ladyscorpio79 on 2019/02/24 12:35
This is the worst app I have ever paid for. It doesn’t even load. I want a refund. Because this app doesn’t work at all. All it does is load all day. Which pisses me off because I paid for it. If it was free i can’t complain but since I have paid for it. This app is trash. I demand a refund.
New update
by Cas1007 on 2019/02/23 22:20
The new update has made the app freeze constantly, I can’t even scan items.
Doesn’t work lately
by Trista25 on 2019/02/23 14:52
Worked great when I got it. Did everything I was told. Re downloaded it, did every update. Scanner still is slow to load and works maybe half the time. For a app you pay for it’s definitely not working how it should! Me and my 2 sisters are having the same problem. But it’s great on the rare occasion it works.
Worked great for a while
by Cher06 on 2019/02/20 20:54
I was loving this app at first then something happened and it loads to the haul page but when u clock penny list it won’t come up. It keeps loading and loading and loading and never comes up. I have tried shutting the phone off and back on. Tried going through the App Store and going into my purchases and loading. It did load it that time but just went in to see if it would load again and got the same thing. This need to be fixed some how. Have had dozens of people having the same issues
Not working
by KSSmith1957 on 2019/02/19 21:31
Since the last update the penny list does not load making the app useless. The developer’s response is “they are aware of the problem and are working to fix it”. That was weeks ago and it’s still not resolved.
Won't open.
by Sunshine KYgirl on 2019/02/19 21:10
I've tried All Day to open the app on my phone. It just continues to update haul posts. I can't use this and it's very frustrating.
Pennyfinder
by Guccigal315 on 2019/02/19 20:20
Love the app but I wish you would fix the penny finder scan part.The haul wall is ok.Hasn't worked in three weeks.Thank you.
PLEASE FIX
by TankGirl89 on 2019/02/19 17:17
Works great and has been. But for the past week it has not been loading. All it does it think. Please fix. I have an Apple phone.
Penny finder
by tweetylover1963 on 2019/02/19 04:26
I purchased this awhile back and it worked great.. just had a update and tried to open and use it and the scanner and the scanner is not displayed on the page to use
😪
by Slinkamadinker on 2019/02/19 00:15
My app hasn’t worked for weeks now. Used to be the best app ever. Hope it gets fixed ASAP
Don’t waste your money
by K~n~C on 2019/02/16 02:14
I never write reviews but since I actually spent money on this app I thought maybe I could prevent someone else from wasting their money by purchasing an app meant to help save money. This app worked the first few days after I purchased. It hasn't worked in over 3 weeks now! Don't even waste time in looking for someone to help you fix the problem because that won't happen. Sad. Truly sad.
Love app but have problems opening it
by klgmmm77 on 2019/02/15 22:46
Love this app but it needs a update just got it 2 weeks ago takes forever to open if I can get it too have uninstalled and reinstalled still does it Please fix ASAP
Great app, but new loading issues
by Dickballs67642 on 2019/02/15 17:19
Love the app, used to use it all the time, but now the Penny List won’t load probably 90% of the time. Haul wall is fine, loads quickly as usual. I’ve reinstalled, cleared other apps, nothing is helping and it’s becoming very frustrating, to the point I can’t even use it as a tool in stores anymore. I can’t even get it to load at home most of the time to add or verify items anymore. Nothing has changed on my end, so not sure what’s happening.
Junk finder
by Hooks21 on 2019/02/10 19:24
First off... I want my money back. Secondly, only buy this app if you want to find those junk items. Like that weird snow globe, or glasses with a mustache. You know that weird stuff you never wanted or needed. Maybe glow in the dark planet stickers is your penny bargain you wanted, but not me.
What happened to this app?
by BoNBull on 2019/02/10 08:38
I loved this app. It did work well. Now the penny list won’t load. I’ve waited over 5 minutes and it is still circling the drain. It is useless. Once it is fixed I’ll revise my review until then thumbs down👎 save your money don’t buy.
List will not load
by ditmore69 on 2019/02/09 19:49
Nothing but trouble since the last update. The app will not load the penny list. Just keeps buffering over and over. I’ve tried everything. Uninstalling and reinstalling. It’s totally useless now. This app will not allow me to contact customer support services either.
Penny list won’t load, unreliable now
by hhfggdshjj on 2019/02/08 17:29
I used to LOVE this app!! Since the latest “upgrade” the penny list takes forever to load or it won’t load at all. Have tried uninstalling and reinstalling but nothing has helped. You used to be able to comment on people’s haul wall posts, but they have taken that option away. Also, since the upgrade I have purchased several items that the app confirms are a penny but the item is full price and vise versa, items that used to be listed as a penny, and still are a penny, do not show up on the app as being a penny. I hope the developers will fix the glitches soon or go back to how it was before. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it...
Penny list won’t load
by Abreaille on 2019/02/07 16:22
Penny list won’t load. Haven’t been able to use this app for months now.
Love it/ having problems
by hillaryavila on 2019/02/06 10:33
I love the app but I’ve been having problems with it not wanting to load
Poor performance
by JBESD on 2019/02/05 04:05
App is constantly loading and unavailable when needed. Neat concept poor performance.
Don’t waste your money
by dalemarie88 on 2019/02/04 03:39
Every time I try to use this app it kicks me off then it will not load then you try to ask them a question on the fb page they never post or answer you back!! This is just for uploading pictures nothing else what s joke!!!
I’m between
by maranda gail hill johnson on 2019/02/02 21:27
I like this app but, it’s so slow. When I was at the store I gave up becuase how long it was taking to load
App
by pittorff on 2019/01/31 22:31
Ever since update I can not scan Otherwise you would have gotten a 5 star bc I never had a problem before
Great BUT not great app
by Pinchinainteasy on 2019/01/31 05:15
I want to give this a 5 BUT since the update the app does NOT work. It just says loading.... please fix ty
WAS worth the money
by Toni8675309 on 2019/01/31 03:59
Before this new update, it was totally worth the money but now I can’t get the list to load. I’ve opened the app before I went to bed, and waited until I woke up before closing the app, still never loaded. I’ve even tried uninstalling and reinstalling, didn’t work either. Please fix this issue!
Once was a great app
by KelseyLejeune on 2019/01/30 04:03
My penny list won’t load and it keeps crashing
Not loading
by ughirritated on 2019/01/28 21:36
For some reason the penny list isn’t loading. I waiting 3 minutes and still didn’t load. I’ve uninstalled it and reinstalled it and nothing.
Needs Work
by Diary of a Mad Chef on 2019/01/07 02:13
CONSTANTLY crashes my phone. It’s crazy. When in the store, it sometimes refuses to load. There is no actual support page as it takes you to the penny finder FB page.
Not worth it
by n653679653 on 2018/12/29 13:05
This app ONLY relies on the members that post a picture of their Penny find. And if you do find a penny item by the time you get to the store, it will be gone. Because the users on here are greedy and will buy up all of the penny items. Example one person found Hostess For one penny and she bought over 50 boxes. A full shopping cart. The Penny Finder is very very limited depending on your location and how the appearance of the store and workers are. I Find a simple Google search will give you the same information as this PAID App will give you. Now on the other hand, yes you can find and get a penny deal from using this app. Only if another person uploads their find and shares that information with you
No “Favorites”
by Nkygrammy on 2018/12/06 15:17
I like this app except for the quote “Penny list”. I have 16,889 entries and no way to organize them. It says to save things to my “favorites”, but there’s no “favorites” on there. It makes the Penny list pretty useless. I tried to contact them but the form to fill out won’t work. When it ask you for the name of the app it only gives you the option of using numbers. It’s very frustrating. Also when I click on “beginner video“ or “contact support”, it takes me to Facebook. The actual scanner works good, But the “Penny list” and the “Haul wall” don’t offer me any more than I can get from a Facebook group.(I still have to do all my own organizing)
Awesome!
by Kcorl3 on 2018/12/01 19:24
I seriously never rate apps, and I definitely NEVER buy apps either, but this one is so so worth it. It has saved me SO much money, and is awesome when you’re in the store and need to quickly find out if an item is a penny or not. I love the UPC scanner, easy to use. This app has definitely already paid for itself!
Love this app but..
by sharon491 on 2018/11/26 13:59
I absolutely love this app , but I realized I have been charged monthly for it for several months instead of the one time fee. I can’t seem to figure out how to get help with this issue. Please help!
No Scanner
by loveDGS on 2018/11/21 16:00
I purchased this application a few days ago & after downloading found out there is no scanner. I don’t know if I should delete it and download it again. But I don’t want to be charged again either.
Pennies
by katarat1955 on 2018/10/19 18:15
I love this app. The scanner is awesome
Unhappy to be scammed
by zbuggzie on 2018/10/07 17:35
I am very unhappy with this app and it’s claimed that you can find penny’s every where this simply is not true. It is based on which state you live in on weather you will get anything or not. In the state I live you will not find anything if you live on the east coast you might find things but not much elsewhere. I am so I’m happy I would like to ask for my money back because it is not worth it it’s a scam.
Not working
by Zanemrose on 2018/09/20 04:27
Have not been able to contact support at all. Can’t seem to find a way to. This app hasn’t worked on my phone once. Never loads right or just freezes and closes.
Doesn’t work
by M.maurer on 2018/09/05 20:42
Every item I scan is not in the system and I got one item today that WAS a penny yet like I said not in the app.... wish I could have my money back would help a lot if it actually worked... only reason I gave it 1 star is because I couldn’t give it 0

Love the new update also. Amazing app!
Frustrating
by amandathornwhitl on 2018/08/21 13:51
Every time I want to load the new list i have to delete and re install the app. I’m growing increasingly frustrated with it.
Penny list won’t load
by Nickel3542 on 2018/08/18 03:09
Love the haul wall, have had the app for two days and still my penny list won’t load and I can’t use the scanner, very frustrated with that!
Best money ever spent
by gnest1 on 2018/08/17 01:01
I downloaded this on a whim in store, after I saw a massive clearance section.. I found over $100 worth of items and paid .07. It paid for itself the first use!! Cant wait to be apart of the family!
Don’t waste your money or time.
by college_student18 on 2018/08/16 18:51
This app is worthless. I tried to use it to find penny items at the store and ended up paying full price after it told me it was a penny item. So I paid money for this app and then I tried it out and ended up paying full price for something this app told me was a penny.
Not worth $2.99
by Here is the solution for it on 2018/08/14 19:23
This app is not worth the $2.99 I paid. I would say $0.99. It does have a huge list of penny items. I think around 11000+ is what the list said. However, many of the items are repeats. Meaning they the same item is on the list multiple times. That just inflates the list number. The list is not up to date. You’re better off following a penny hashtag if you’re looking for new items. That being said. This app does have a convenient built in scanner which helps confirm older items you may come across in store. Of course again the drawback is if you seen a new item go a penny online and use the scanner to confirm. It will not be up to date because of the list. Another annoyance is it makes you create a account. A unnecessary step for purchasing a app with one intention which is penny items. Aside from creating a account they have a face book group which has all the updated pics. Which for those of us that don’t use face book it’s a waste. They show pics of new items from their “haul” but no upcs or anything valuable to help people in the app. It’s just bragging. The list isn’t updated so what’s the point. This app is more like a paid way to lure you into a face book group. I’ll use the list but again it is not worth the $2.99.
Stole my money
by samcas1 on 2018/08/14 03:39
I bought the app and was never allowed to register. Just wasted $2.99!
New to this , can’t find anything a penny
by Alysiaaaa💓 on 2018/08/12 01:28
How do you know what to look for ?
1st Day
by Ghfhjhdkydmvdyifdkgdkhfdhfdkh on 2018/06/23 01:17
Wow. So. I was skeptical at first and I was hesitant in buying this app. Well. I tried it out, and at my first store, I got about 14 items. I do have one suggestion thought. Someone else mentioned having the list organized into categories. This would be extremely helpful. No one wants to scroll through over 3000 items and the scan and check method can get tiresome. Still. Awesome app.
Waisted my money
by coupon_lady on 2018/06/22 15:08
The app says 1 to download but charged me over 2 dollars. How and why would you do that? I have not found enough penny items to even pay for this app. I look like a fool scanning stuff in the store for hours. The employees start to stare at you. This app NEVER upgrades. Will ever get any better? Waisted my money.
Don’t do it
by vbbnbvbjkbghhjnnnmvnlv mhkghgh on 2018/05/01 18:44
I was kicked out of my store because of scanning. I was completely mortified.
Love
by MaNdIe567 on 2018/04/16 01:50

Penny Finder app

This is by far the greatest app ever. Thank you for helping families save money and find great deals. The app is user friendly. Great job for keeping it up to date.
Pure excitement
by pdteat on 2018/04/13 04:08
I am a mom of seven and wife of one. This app rocks!! It actually allows me to have a bit of “me” time and going looking for awesome steals. It helps financially as well. App works wonderful and communication among other app users is a huge plus!!
Great app

This is a great app to help save a ton of money on penny finds at Dollar General.

This is by far one of my favorite apps! This app has made shopping so much easier for me! I 100% suggest getting this app to save so much money! Who don’t love a good penny hunt?!
Penny Finder App Review
by seabreeze71 on 2018/04/12 22:40
I don't purchase many apps, but I figured this one was worth a try. It only took one penny find to pay for itself. While I'm not an avid penny shopper, it's nice to confirm a possible penny item BEFORE I check out. It's really a cool app that I wouldn't want to penny shop without. Anyone who plans to invest the time in penny shopping should invest in the app--small price, big payoff. Highly recommend.

I love this app! It’s very easy to navigate! And very fun to use too!! I check it everyday!
Penny finder is awesome and worth the $1.99
by IJB95 on 2018/04/12 19:55
This app is awesome. It’s so exciting when you find an item for a penny. I like that I can scan the item and the app lets me know if it’s a penny item. I haven’t had the app for long but have already gotten a few penny items! It’s definitely worth the $1.99!!!
Worth Every Penny!!!
by Shae Walls on 2018/04/12 13:02
This is the ONLY penny app that has saved me and my family hundreds!!! It is super easy to use when in store with the scanner provided in app! There are also pictures of the item just match the barcode that is also provided! Some stores do not have service so make sure you REFRESH before entering. Out of the 15 stores I shop at there is only one store that does not have service!!! This is absolutely worth purchasing!!!
Love It
by Sheilaw1977 on 2018/04/12 12:55
Even though I haven’t found a lot of penny items I still love it,I’m always looking to see what people post and wishing I could find all the awesome stuff everyone finds thanks
Very well worth it!!
by Bayla0116 on 2018/04/12 11:30
Very well worth the money! Easy to navigate and very user friendly! The 1.99 fee doesn’t touch the savings you’ll get! Use it once and you’ll get your money’s worth!!! The only issue I’ve came across is I switched from android to apple and the refreshing is a bit slow but could be the phone not the app. Great work to the developer!! ☺️
Awesome!
by Sandy swindler on 2018/04/12 11:26
Never knew about all the things you could buy for a penny and this app makes it so simple!! Well worth the 2 dollars!
Penny Finder
by Archerymom on 2018/04/12 10:29
Love this app. It helps me find products that you would usually find at full price for just pennies. Help save me money especially when you have 2 kids in college and 1 in high school.
Penny Finder is Amazing!
by xX SuPaM4N Xx on 2018/04/12 04:34
I downloaded this app not knowing exactly what it was for, but within a few days I was already finding things for 1 cent! This app has definitely paid for itself 100x over based on all of the items I have found using this app.
Totally worth the price ❤️ this app
by Amanda Tallent Brock on 2018/04/10 22:08
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!
Love It - Except For 2 Things!
by Fitandflair on 2018/04/10 23:57
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.
Good App!
by Serowski on 2018/04/11 01:41
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!
2 dolla.... will make you holla...from PURE EXCITEMENT!
by Itsmedudes on 2017/09/09 01:56
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!❤️
Penny items
by Batgal85 on 2017/10/31 01:42
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.
Family Fun!
by Samk.1283 on 2018/04/11 12:29
This app is incredible and worth its weight in gold! My kids can use it with ease! Since becoming disabled and having 3 kids we try to have fun and reward them when we can. Now our activity is penny shopping! I put the app on my phone and an extra phone we had for my kids to shop with! I even got my mom to get the app and now she goes with us! It’s fun for the whole family! We also give away a lot of the items we get so it’s also a great way to teach my kids charity! We truly love it!!! P.S. We love that it vibrates when you find a match! Makes it that much more exciting!!!
Awesome resource!
by Rampant5 on 2018/04/11 13:55
I was a bit skeptical, but it turns out that any trepidation I had was unfounded... this app is great! It’s really helped me get in the penny finding game, and it’s so exciting when you find something and the phone buzzes and that green box pops up! I’ve even added a few penny items already. Only one suggestion... instead of deleting ymmv pennies, how about leaving them in the app? You can see how many people verified that they got it for a penny and how many people flagged the item. It might be valuable to know the item might be a penny for you, and could open up a whole new world of hunting!
Miss out if useera don't upload items
by couponervt on 2017/09/13 00:00
If you want some old penny items, this app can be helpful but you will never get a new item! This app only works if app buyers upload their confirmed penny items! Many times I've had new penny items in my hand but after scanning in the app it tells me "No" only because no one has uploaded it! So....for the new items it's not helpful, and if users don't upload this app will never be successful. I paid a 1.99 to keep this app in business by uploading what I find, and to hope others upload their finds?! However I have found older penny items i.e., pink dot, gray star f16 but the top groups are more helpful for new items. We need more users for a successful app as well as a price check scanner for regular priced items.
Penny list won’t load, unreliable now
by hhfggdshjj on 2019/02/08 17:29
I used to LOVE this app!! Since the latest “upgrade” the penny list takes forever to load or it won’t load at all. Have tried uninstalling and reinstalling but nothing has helped. You used to be able to comment on people’s haul wall posts, but they have taken that option away. Also, since the upgrade I have purchased several items that the app confirms are a penny but the item is full price and vise versa, items that used to be listed as a penny, and still are a penny, do not show up on the app as being a penny. I hope the developers will fix the glitches soon or go back to how it was before. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it...
Love it By: Unique
by Unique66 on 2017/09/10 19:16
I was hesitant on spending the $1.99 for this app and wasn't sure if it really worked. I tried penny apps before this one that was not accurate. When I purchased this app omg best app ever. I found so many penny item. I got Christmas toys, socks, shoes, home supplies, food, and last but not least as seen on Tv items🙌🏽. I know a lot of people say why penny shop. It's about getting the good deals on top of the excitement you feel when you find an item. I love penny shopping and this was the best $1.99 I've ever spend. Now I'm off to penny shop. Trust me this app will not disappoint you.
No “Favorites”
by Nkygrammy on 2018/12/06 15:17
I like this app except for the quote “Penny list”. I have 16,889 entries and no way to organize them. It says to save things to my “favorites”, but there’s no “favorites” on there. It makes the Penny list pretty useless. I tried to contact them but the form to fill out won’t work. When it ask you for the name of the app it only gives you the option of using numbers. It’s very frustrating. Also when I click on “beginner video“ or “contact support”, it takes me to Facebook. The actual scanner works good, But the “Penny list” and the “Haul wall” don’t offer me any more than I can get from a Facebook group.(I still have to do all my own organizing)
Loving good friends, good deals and fun. It’s a blessing to be a blessing ❤️
by Pooter love on 2017/11/01 03:08
I love this group because of the people. Since I have been in this group I find myself searching through my Facebook post just to see what everyone is posting and doing. The idea of no drama is awesome. Since I can’t work I now use penny finder as a way of occupying my time and also find great deals for my family and others. It can be addicting, however I don’t mind because it’s a great app once you learn to use it properly. Thanks penny finder for creating this for people like me.
Worked great for a while
by Cher06 on 2019/02/20 20:54
I was loving this app at first then something happened and it loads to the haul page but when u clock penny list it won’t come up. It keeps loading and loading and loading and never comes up. I have tried shutting the phone off and back on. Tried going through the App Store and going into my purchases and loading. It did load it that time but just went in to see if it would load again and got the same thing. This need to be fixed some how. Have had dozens of people having the same issues
Best Penny Shopping Resource Available
by Livin La Vida Broka on 2018/04/11 11:43
This is by far the best penny shopping resource available. It is newbie friendly. Using the app removes a lot of the trial and error with penny shopping at Dollar General. The scanning feature within the app saves so much time when in store. The penny list Is compromised of penny finds submitted by users. The app developers are very active and diligently monitor the database to keep it as accurate as possible. I have recommended this app to so many of my penny shopping friends and we all agree it is well worth the cost.
Pros and Cons
by LilKrisss on 2017/09/09 02:36
I am glad I downloaded the app, it has helped me confirm a few things, however the downside to that is that with the older items not being loaded it doesn't help confirm them. So I am hunting through screenshots or FB, which takes a lot of time! I do my best to add items, but that is time consuming for someone not getting paid.. hint hint lol The other pro and probably one of the things I like most, beside seeing Match Found!!! The app will work in the stores if you are logged in, so with no signal to check FB pages, I can still scan items.. great job with that! Thanks!!
Absolutely Love
by Mrs Moma Claus on 2018/04/10 23:28
I love this app. It makes penny shopping so much easier for me. The app works even if you have no signal in a store just by scanning the item. I have been using it for several months and have never had any issues. I study the haul wall and the penny list to make sure I am aware of what penny items are out there. I have actually been able to locate more penny items then a friend of mine that has been penny shopping longer because she doesn’t have the app. If you penny shop, you need this app.
Life changing
by finding and searching join me on 2017/10/29 16:27
I love this app. I enjoy looking for things others have found and enjoy posting what I have found in return, they were so helpful and nice when I had any troubles with app. I have suggested this app to several others and I have heard from them nothing but good things. Every once In awhile you will scan something that ain’t the same as what it says or you want find it in your store don’t give up, you will find more than you want and that is a promise, this app is worth buying
Overall Great App
by RachelPatt on 2017/10/28 20:29
I have had this app for a while. It has improved so much over time. I love the feature of being able to add favorites. I also love that the penny items have to be verified by other users so you can see how many people it has been a penny for and how many have said it was full price. One thing that could be fixed is that lately I’ve noticed that when scrolling the screen will freeze every now and then for a few seconds before it scrolls.
Not worth it
by n653679653 on 2018/12/29 13:05
This app ONLY relies on the members that post a picture of their Penny find. And if you do find a penny item by the time you get to the store, it will be gone. Because the users on here are greedy and will buy up all of the penny items. Example one person found Hostess For one penny and she bought over 50 boxes. A full shopping cart. The Penny Finder is very very limited depending on your location and how the appearance of the store and workers are. I Find a simple Google search will give you the same information as this PAID App will give you. Now on the other hand, yes you can find and get a penny deal from using this app. Only if another person uploads their find and shares that information with you
Hidden Gem!!! ❤️
by Blessed In PA on 2018/04/10 22:07
I’ve been out of work and without a paycheck (still fighting for it) since October 2017 due to a disability. I stumbled upon this App while looking for ways to spend less and save more. I was skeptical at first since it was $1.99. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine it would be so great!!! It has been a blessing to me. I have MORE than made $1.99 back. I can’t thank you enough! I may not hit a lot of things at one time but what I have found (such as toothpaste etc) has helped me a ton.

DO NOT BUY App went down hill fast!! Terrible now!
by Terrible company! on 2019/03/05 06:00
I have had this app for a while! It used to work just fine! Now they switched to a new server (so the said) and the app never works! I was suggesting this app to everyone for a while! Bought it for my husband, my daughter and my Mom! Since the update none of us can use it! It either doesn’t load or takes forever to load! Once loaded you can’t get the scanner to work! Useless app! I have tried to contact “support “ which just goes to the Facebook page that they won’t let you post on and will not answer private messages. Wish they would read the reviews, they probably don’t care!
Seasoned Penny Shopper Loves this APP!!!!
by couponchix on 2018/03/19 01:53
I have been Penny shopping for probably about four years now and I absolutely love this app it has saved me so time!!!!!!sometimes I would pass things up because I wasn't sure if it was a penny item and with this app I can verify!! The only complaint I have is I wish I would of had this app four years ago when I started penny shopping!!! You will not be disappointed if you buy this App!!!!!!!!!!
BEST THING SINCE SLICED BREAD!
by Kmartaholic on 2018/04/11 09:04
I bought this app about a month ago, and it has helped me find over 100 penny items!! It is very user friendly (super easy to utilize)! I love seeing everyone’s penny hauls on the haul wall! I love that we can scan an item to see if it is a penny, and I love that you can type in a brand or product name to quickly find what you are searching for! Definitely worth the money spent! I have made that back in pennies!!
Love this app when it works
by Liljadedragon on 2019/03/13 14:20
This is a great app to find penny items at the Dollar General. However, it locks up on my phone all the time, does not open OFTEN. I have to restart my phone and other apps make it work. It’s slow working as well. My phone is fully updated and works well with other apps. Needs improvement but when it works it’s great. Something new is it locks up and has to be forcefully shut down when scanning consecutively. Wish this worked better.
Great app, but new loading issues
by Dickballs67642 on 2019/02/15 17:19
Love the app, used to use it all the time, but now the Penny List won’t load probably 90% of the time. Haul wall is fine, loads quickly as usual. I’ve reinstalled, cleared other apps, nothing is helping and it’s becoming very frustrating, to the point I can’t even use it as a tool in stores anymore. I can’t even get it to load at home most of the time to add or verify items anymore. Nothing has changed on my end, so not sure what’s happening.

The best app ever!!!!
by padytnyy on 2017/09/11 16:05
I have searched before apps and Facebook groups for Dollar General penny finds and this trumps them all. I love this app the best money I've ever spent! It's an addiction that is so awesome... I've found things for my granddaughter that will last a long time - clothes, socks, hair bows etc. This app is unlike any other - so glad I took the chance that I recommended my sister for it. :-)
Loving it!
by Shandellynn on 2017/09/11 01:03
I just downloaded PF last week and started looking for Pennies. With the help of this app I have been able to find roughly 30 items this past week! I didn't even know what Pennies were before then. Thanks PF for being here to help keep things straight! Having the list and being able to scan barcodes is a tremendous help!
Awesome App!!!!!
by littleman4314 on 2017/10/31 16:36
This is the most amazing app I have ever used there’s a scanner on it to scan barcodes it tells you all the penny items so you’re not having to scan every item in the store it is amazing it is so worth buying I would’ve paid way more for this app I love it and I use every single week thank you so much for creating this app!!!!!
Fantastic app!
by shrtstopshrty on 2018/04/11 00:44
This app is great! The scanner helps you figure out whether an item is a penny item or not without having to scroll though the penny list. I’ve already gotten over $75 worth of items for about .50 cents total! This app has already paid for itself and is well worth the one time $1.99 fee!
1st Day
by Ghfhjhdkydmvdyifdkgdkhfdhfdkh on 2018/06/23 01:17
Wow. So. I was skeptical at first and I was hesitant in buying this app. Well. I tried it out, and at my first store, I got about 14 items. I do have one suggestion thought. Someone else mentioned having the list organized into categories. This would be extremely helpful. No one wants to scroll through over 3000 items and the scan and check method can get tiresome. Still. Awesome app.
Use in a pinch
by April31lynn on 2017/10/28 11:48
I bought the penny app when I was new to penny shopping. I loved the idea. It has worked great for me not one item that’s come ups Penny has scanned different at the register. My only concern is using it makes my poor phone die quicker. So I tend to use photos and then the app in a pinch. (My phone dying might be a phone issue who knows). Other then that no issues or concerns. It’s a great app!
Awesome!
by Kcorl3 on 2018/12/01 19:24
I seriously never rate apps, and I definitely NEVER buy apps either, but this one is so so worth it. It has saved me SO much money, and is awesome when you’re in the store and need to quickly find out if an item is a penny or not. I love the UPC scanner, easy to use. This app has definitely already paid for itself!
Love it!!
by Cal070613$ on 2017/09/10 00:18
I use this app every time I go into any DG. I review the list before I go but it's still so great to have when I can't remember for sure what a particular item is that is marked down. Able to use when I don't have signal and have only had trouble loading maybe two or three times at most.
Definitely worth buying!
by lenab11111 on 2017/09/09 19:34
I don't ever buy apps but this one was definitely worth it it's easy to follow and get started! Love that you don't have to have service to use it because my stores don't have service unless your beside the front door! Download this and get to finding those penny items!!
You will LOVE to use this app!!
by Saving seeker gma on 2017/10/31 01:31
The Penny Finder app is like solid gold!! As soon as I downloaded the app and used it at my first Dollar General, I found several penny items! It doesn't cost much and the app basically pays for itself. Thanks to Penny Finder I was able to put together Halloween treat bags for my grandkids and have stocking stuffers and presents for my kids & grandkids!
Def worth it
by Kd2095 on 2018/04/11 20:00
I waited a while to actually purchase this app. Just followed the groups in hope to find pennies... once I decided to buy the app it made things so much easier ! I could verify that what I was seeing in the group matched in the app with the scanner and I was able to successfully find pennies !
Love this app!
by JLJ1022 on 2017/10/31 06:56
This app has been an awesome, easy to use, and fun tool that has helped me find some good deals at my local DG! I also think that the videos are a helpful item included. I am so thankful for the fellow shopper who told me about it in the clearance section when I was shopping recently!!! A penny saved/found is a penny earned!!!
Very real!!
by Brandimade on 2018/04/11 11:43
At first I thought this wasn’t real because I couldn’t find anything my first visit. I tried again when a new penny list posted and I found many items! Literally these items were just a penny and no tax! I had no problem completing the purchase
Love it
by Work24/7 on 2017/10/30 16:51
Ever since I found this app. Me, my mom, and my sister spend every Tuesday together. Usually I work all week and weekend since I have 2 jobs. But now I make sure I have Tuesday’s off so I can spend time with my mom so we can go shopping together. Love this app and the time it gives me to spend with my mom.
Love it!
by hpresnell2010 on 2017/09/18 05:37
I love, love, love this app!!! It helps to take away the anxiety of knowing for sure if something is a penny item. It really helped me to better understand how to penny shop. In my opinion well worth the money! My only suggestion is that on the penny list the items r listed from newest to oldest items listed/found.
My lucky Penny ❤️
by alrk925 on 2018/04/11 17:21
I was so overwhelmed by fb groups and the millions of comments that I just gave up. Until I seen a comment about Penny finder. This has helped me tremendously and saved me lots of time that I need for my children. I use to leave pennies on the ground when I seen them. Not any more. This is the best app that I own.
Penny finder is awesome and worth the $1.99
by IJB95 on 2018/04/12 19:55
This app is awesome. It’s so exciting when you find an item for a penny. I like that I can scan the item and the app lets me know if it’s a penny item. I haven’t had the app for long but have already gotten a few penny items! It’s definitely worth the $1.99!!!
Can’t penny shop without it!!
by Skifreakdawn on 2018/04/10 22:09
I am head over heels in love with this app!! It was totally worth the $1.99 ten times over! I have found so many penny items that I have been able to confirm with this app before going to the register! My go to app for penny shopping hands down!!
Penny finder
by saramay1123 on 2017/10/29 11:41
I was hesitant at first to purchase the app. But I made my money back with in the first day of using it. It is very user friendly, as so my dad can use it. My whole family has purchased the app. It makes it easier to find pennies especially if you are unsure. Thanks for an amazing app!
Penny Finder is Amazing!
by xX SuPaM4N Xx on 2018/04/12 04:34
I downloaded this app not knowing exactly what it was for, but within a few days I was already finding things for 1 cent! This app has definitely paid for itself 100x over based on all of the items I have found using this app.
Super helpful
by twilyteeys on 2017/09/11 14:50
This app is so useful when you are searching for pennied out items. Being able to actually see what these items look like and having other users confirm that they are only a penny is extremely helpful.
Love this app!!!
by Gizmo-and-Opie on 2018/04/11 00:47
I downloaded this app about 6 weeks ago and after my first trip to the store it more than paid for itself. I would and have recommend this app. My friend downloaded it and loves it just as much as I do. Well worth the money and it's a fun "sport" lol
