 I found a great deal that I want to share with you. How do I do that?   I LOVE it when people share deals with me – and I thank them within my posts! If you found a deal that you feel would be good for the site, please submit your deal to me here.  I can’t gurantee that every deal I receive will be posted, but I do take the time to read them all.(Back to top).
.
How can I keep up with the deals you post?  In order to ensure that you never miss a deal, you would benefit most by signing up for our daily eamil digest. This sends a list of all of the deals to your inbox each afternoon. You can then click the links within the email and go right to the deal itself for more details. You can also follow me via a reader, on Facebook or even on Twitter! I tend to share time sensitive deals on Facebook or even links ONLY in Facebok there, so that is a great way to never miss out on a deal! (Back to top).

Why can’t I see my comment (where did my comment go)? If you have never left a comment on Penny Pinchin’ Mom in the past, I have to manually approve yours to be posted. This is done only to help me reduce the amount of spam comments that might get through to the site. If you made a comment that I felt was too negative or vulgar, I reserve the right to delete your comment and, if need be, block any future comments from being made by you in the future. I will not accept verbal abuse from anyone and the beauty is that I don’t have to. (Back to top).
