If you want to install and use the Penny Finder app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use Penny Finder for your computer in 4 simple steps below:

Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here

Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.

Step 3: Penny Finder for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type Penny Finder in the search bar and press Search. Click on Penny Finder application icon. A window of Penny Finder on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the Penny Finder icon. Click on it and start using the application.

Step 4: Penny Finder for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use Penny Finder for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one

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.

  • Love It - Except For 2 Things!

    By Fitandflair
    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
    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
    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
    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.

  • Unhappy to be scammed

    By zbuggzie
    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
    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
    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

    By Lopuchowycz
    Love the new update also. Amazing app!
  • Frustrating

    By amandathornwhitl
    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
    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
    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
    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
    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.
