Check your wallets!! Your pennies could be worth $1,000!! SF Gate reports that Ally Bank has created a “Lucky Penny” promotion which began this week. Here’s how it works: 100 lucky pennies have been scattered around, each worth 100,000 cents. That turns out to be $1,000! Think of it like a modern-day golden ticket from Willy Wonka.
The pennies have been placed in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington, D.C., Miami, Denver, Detroit, San Diego, Charlotte, North Carolina, and Austin, Texas, but they could end up anywhere! If you find one, they can be redeemed til the end of the year.
