For all of you who ask your loved ones to send pennies as a sign, maybe you can start asking for these ones! It would bring new meaning to the words "pennies from heaven". While stopping to pick up a stray penny off the ground may not seem worth the effort, Ally Bank wants to change that mindset by placing 100 fake pennies across the country worth $1,000 apiece.
Ally Bank says it is hoping to encourage Americans to look for opportunities to save through its "Lucky Penny" promotion, which launched this week. The lucky pennies carry a copper color like real pennies, but feature the Detroit-based bank's logo instead of Abraham Lincoln's head. The flip side of the coin lists its value at 100,000 cents.
