About Penny Finder

Welcome to Penny Finder! Where like-minded, savings savvy, penny pinching people come to find the latest and greatest penny finds from Dollar General*!


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.

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).


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.)

We've implemented a lot of your requests!

User "If someone tries to buy a penny item and it's actually full price, we need a way of flagging that penny item on the penny list"
UPDATE: Sliding a penny item to the left now reveals the Full Price button, indicating the item was bought for full price if pressed.

User "I want to see the Penny Items I added, and I want to edit or delete them"
UPDATE: Good news and bad news: Good News first: You can now goto My Pennies and see the Penny Items you've added from here on out. Bad News: We never kept track of who was posting the penny items, so all past penny items that you have posted will not show up on your My Penny feed. We apologize, but at least we're headed in the right direction.

User "When I tap on that top row where it says "23 New Items", I want to see all the new items, I don't want to scroll forever to find them."
UPDATE: When you tap anywhere on the top row where it says the number of new items, you will see only the new items that have been added in the past 24hrs.

User: "On my iPhone 4s the search bar is really tiny"
UPDATE: We got rid of the cancel button and place a done button on the keyboard to give you more room.

User: "I tried to scan a barcode and the barcode reader didn't recognize it"
UPDATE: We've added more types of barcode formats for the barcode reader to recognize and we update the user interface to be more friendly"

User: "I can hardly see my photo when adding a Penny Item"
UPDATE: We've made the photo bigger so that you can see it clearly before you submit your penny item.

User: "It would be great to have an ISN (in store now) page with notifications"
UPDATE: We're working hard on getting this done. Unfortunately we need more time to get this completed, coming soon!

A special thank you to the Admin of the Facebook group "Dollar General Penny And Discount Shopping", they are a tremendous source of helpful information, so we have added a quick link to our app so that you easily navigate between our app and their group. :)

Other cool things we did in this update:

- Animations when confirming a penny item.
- We organized the side menu so that it makes sense (user stuff at the top, social stuff at the bottom).
- Icon changes, and text changes.
- We adjusted the animation for new penny items to be green and the pulsating animation is smoother.
