WASHINGTON - An online banking company is giving Washingtonians plenty of reasons to stop and pick up that penny on the ground!
Ally Financial is giving away 100 pennies worth $1000 each in a nationwide treasure hunt. The Ally Lucky Penny Sweepstakes began Tuesday morning and will take place in ten cities - including Washington, D.C. The contest will last until the end of the year.
The online bank says ten pennies will be hidden in the District - and in the other selected cities - and will be placed in areas that are open to the public.
The special Ally pennies will be bigger than a regular penny and will feature the company's logo.
The financial company says the sweepstakes is designed to show that pennies still are valuable and that a penny saved is a penny earned! The complete rules are listed here: allyluckypenny.com/rules
