“Spend A Little, Save A Little”


This Summer, East River Bank will host its very own social media competition, “Spend a Little, Save a Little.”  Beginning on July 8th and continuing throughout the months of July and August, Penny, the East River Bank piggy bank, will be hiding throughout the city of Philadelphia. Each Tuesday Penny’s picture along with clues of her Philly-centric location will be posted on East River Bank’s Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Everyone will have a chance to win an assortment of gift cards by guessing Penny’s location in the form of a comment using the hashtag #SaveWithPenny. Winners will be chosen at random to win ten dollar gift cards from local businesses like Joe’s Steaks + Soda Shop, Rita’s Water Ice, Winnie’s LeBus, Franklin Fountain, Geno’s Steaks and Independent Philly. Winners will be announced each Monday under the comments section of the previous week’s photo.

On Labor Day, Penny will be hiding somewhere in the city. The first person to follow the clue, find Penny and return her to the nearest East River Bank location will win the Grand Prize of a $50 gift card to Scout Vintage in Old City.

So be sure to brush up on your Philadelphia trivia and good luck!
