Penny Finder App Reviews

0 add

Loving good friends, good deals and fun. It’s a blessing to be a blessing ❤️

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.

Awesome App!!!!!

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!!!!!


I have used penny finder for over two months now . Love being able to see others hauls and what people find . It’s a rush when I find penny items . I wouldn’t know what to look for if I didn’t have penny finder . It is well worth the two dollars !

Fun & Well Worth the Price

I just recently purchased the Penny Finder app, but I’ve already used it and I’m in love! The barcode scanner takes the guesswork out of your shopping! So handy, definitely recommend!!

Love this app!

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!!!

Best App Ever

Love love love this App. I was skeptical to purchase the App. But when I did my first shopping using the App and came home with a great deal,I knew I made the right choice in getting this App.

Single mother millionare

I am a single mother who has ALWAYS pinched Penny's. I have done with out because my kids needed anything. Bills overcome income etc. Since finding this app.i feel like.a millionaire. Not.because my bank account changed. But because my HAS! I have been able to pprovide snacks, supplies, fun toys and gift to not only my own children but for my co workers. Friends. And thier children as well as help.with operation christmas child. I'm known around town as the crazy dollar general addict. I absolutely LOVE the adventure and the ability to give to others. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS APP. IT HAS CHANGED MY JOY!


Room for improvement (speed and categorizing) but love ease of scanning on my own

Penny items

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.

You will LOVE to use this app!!

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!

Pays for itself

I love this app! It helps in so many ways. Your able to get the info on penny items as well as bar code scanning to be sure it's a penny item!


This app is run by some great no drama people. They keep it update as new pennies come up and delete when old pennies reset. Penny finding is time consuming studying and hard work but this app makes it easy to know for sure if items are a penny. Love it! Love the Hart's as well 😊

New and loving it

New to this app and loving it simple to use so far. Can’t wait to start saving $$$

Penny penny penny

This app is a God send!! It makes penny shopping a ease. Now if we could just get everybody to read the instructions on how to penny shop we would be winning!

Love it

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.

Penny Newbie!

After trying to find penny items myself I gave up and downloaded the app and FOUND MY FIRST THREE PENNY ITEMS! It's so much easier than trying to match up colors of shapes and trying to figure out what code is or isn't a penny item!

Penny finder

I love the app and the fact that I can scan items without having to text my sister and ask questions about an item that I think is a penny.

Very helpful!!

I absolutely love this app! I have found hundreds, literally hundreds of penny items with this app. Helps me a lot more than just screenshots! Thank you for coming up with this app and of course for everyone else helping to add the penny items to it! 😃

The Best Ever!

This app is wonderful! I love going into a Dollar General store and searching for pennies. I showed my mom and she had to get the app too. It’s just like a scavenger hunt for adults. So fun! It was worth every penny! Thanks!

Great App

I've only been penny shopping for a couple months . If it were not for this app I would have given up . Not to mention the ladies I've made friends with. !! Excellent app. Worth the 1.99$ !!! All 199 pennies .. lol!!!

Best Penny

This is the best Penny App available in my opinion. I made my $1.99 back the first day I used it. Penny shopping has become a hobby since I've downloaded this app.

Great app

This is the only app that it’s worth buying. Amazing savings and no coupons!

I ❤️ Pennies

This app has been a great help to find all the pennies that u are looking for... definitely worth it

Great app

I love the app. It is a great app and is really addicting.

Life changing

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


This has helped me tremendously when it comes to penny shopping. It's easy to use and they stay on top of everything posted in it. I LOVE this app.

Penny Finder

Love it! It's like going on a treasure hunt in the DG store. I found 14 items on my last visit. The only drawback would be the new items don't always scan for me.

Penny finder

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!

Love love

This app helps me find all the things at dg that are a penny scored about a dozen items already!! Highly recommend this app to anyone who needs a deal! Who doesn't want to spend a penny on something?

Overall Great App

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.

Love this app!

Penny finder is the absolute best! I’m so glad I got this, it’s so helpful when you are in store!


This is one of the best app purchases I have ever made...and I don’t buy many apps because I’m cheap lol! I have found more than enough penny items with this app to pay for itself many times over! LOVE IT!!! Thank you penny finder for all you do to help us!

Wasted $ !!!!!

Seriously too good to be true!!! This app is a joke. Don’t waste your money on it like I did. What a waste!!!


I was a little hesitant to purchase this this app. Mainly because I am a major money pincher. But I seen all the great things people were getting with the app, so I took the chance. 🤑 SUPRISE!! The app paid for itself the 2nd time I used it, I was hooked.

Use in a pinch

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!

LOVE IT!!!😍❤️

I absolutely LOVE the Penny Finder app!! It is always so exciting when I scan an item and my phone vibrates and the pic pops up!! 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

Amazing savings!

This app is well worth the purchase. I’ve saved so much already. They make it so easy.

Love the app

Very helpful. Without this app I was unable to find anything penny items. Thanks

Love this app

The app is updated by users. The first time I went to the search I found penny items that day. I love it! One of my favorite apps!

Liar and unuseful app! waste of money!!!

Biggest ripoff, app doesn\'t work and not accurate. Liar app! It is mentioned that it can be used offline but not actually. What a waste of money! Getting a refund!

Love it!

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.

Miss out if useera don't upload items

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.

Worst app

Buying things for penny's who does this??? Bunch of trash

Works amazing

Was super excited about this . So easy to us and u can use it with out internet with most our stores in town we have no internet in them so it's nice to be able to us it that way

Love it- A must have!!

Oh my goodness!! I LOVE this app! A must have for any penny shopper!! I have saved TONS and have had fun doing it. I almost don't wanna tell my friends so I can find more pennies in town! Haha! (Side note- I have told friends anyway 😜) -KRISTINA ESTEP

wish it would work!

In theory this app is a good idea. However, randomly the app logs me out and then I cannot get logged back in without resetting the password several times. Right now I have tried for over an hour. Reset the password twice and still can't get back into the app. The link for assistance does not work either. VERY FRUSTRATING to pay for something that is not reliable.


I love this app!! It is so easy to use!! Totally worth the 1.99$ 👍🏻

Awesome app

I wish this was around a couple of years ago when we first started penny shopping. The app keeps getting better and better.

The best app ever!!!!

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. :-)

Super helpful

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.
