I am one of those people who knows the worth of every single penny. I can thank my mom and dad for that. There’s no way around it either. The hubby and I work really hard for every cent, so we make it count. I think that’s why I’m so impressed with JCPenney’s new promotional offer—”Penney Days.” They are offering select items available for just a penny. Yes, you read that right…a penny.
From now until March 5, 2016 JCPenney customers will be able to purchase an apparel item from The Original Arizona Jean Co.® brand and get another Arizona item for just a penny! While supplies last of course. This offer is available in store and on jcpenney.com. They will even continue to host Penney Days throughout the year. They are doing whatever it takes to make every interaction worth your time, money, and effort.
They were even giving people a chance to win with some fun activations throughout the country. This one below was in Downtown L.A. and as you can see this truck was covered in pennies. Am I the only person wondering how many they used in this display?
I didn’t realize how much I was missing a gum ball machine in my life, until JCPenney sent me one. How cool is this? And it only takes a penny! Don’t you love the almighty penny? So, did you know JCPenney conducted a penny focused survey? They found that 95 million Americans (2 in 5) say they usually wouldn’t even pick up a penny if they saw it on the sidewalk. Wait…what? Why not? I have a saying…”See a penny pick it up, then all day you’ll have good luck.”
But that doesn’t mean Americans think the penny is worthless. In fact, quite the opposite. Nearly nine in ten Americans still keep pennies around either in their home, a piggy bank or their purse (89%) and say that pennies can come in handy (88%). Almost three-quarters of Americans (73%) say the penny is an important part of our currency and should not be eliminated. I agree! Do you?
