Did You Know We Had These Promotional Piggy Banks?

Oiiiiiinnnnnkkkk! Om nom nom nom.

He's a star of political cartoons. He's often a child's first exposure to the idea of saving dough. He's porcine, typically pink and sometimes dons a dollar sign. He's the piggy bank, and he just got an upgrade.

This porcine white guy from ADVANCE Custom Promotions isn't one of those run of the mill promotional piggy banks. No, he's now Piggy Bank 2.0 (v.1). No more will you have to wonder just how much change is sitting in the piggy bank. This is the digital age, and stuffing a piggy bank without knowing the balance is so 2005.

These promotional piggy banks are battery-powered counting machines. When you feed the piggy bank some change, he counts it, and the total amount in the bank registers on a screen at the top. If you check out the product page for these promotional piggy banks and click the picture to see the pig sans customization, you can see a photo of how this all works. I would've put that picture in this blog, but I have a strict policy against supporting hand models of any kind on this site. An archaic policy, yes, but I'm sticking to it.

To give these promotional piggy banks some oomph, you can add your one-color imprint to them. Batteries are included, so you won't have to worry about potential customers or giveaway recipients scrambling madly through junk drawers to find those darn triple-As. The promotional piggy banks are a good size, six inches by four and a half inches, and they're all white so your imprint stands out. They kind of remind me just a little bit of some of our stuffed germs and cells that we carry at ADVANCE Healthcare Shop, but that's probably just me.

The most fun part of the promotional piggy bank is the way it can be used to help you market your goods. Running a campaign focused on saving money at your shop? Provide these promotional piggy banks as a giveaway, complete with your logo. Banks can have these customized to give to customers as a promotion for new savings account offerings. They'd be great for little kids, too, and can work to teach the wee ones about socking money away.

What do you think of these promotional piggy banks? How could you use them in a campaign?

About Lynn Jusinski

After an internship at a home magazine where she wrote about media rooms and $500,000 pool renovations from the comfort of a teeny, cluttered dorm room, Lynn Jusinski graduated from a small college in Pennsylvania and then moved on to write for two weekly newspapers in suburban Philadelphia. A column she penned for the papers won an award from the Pennsylvania Newspaper Association. In 2007, Lynn moved back to the magazine world, and worked full-time as an associate editor for ADVANCE for Health Information Professionals. Her work on the magazine led to “Rookie of the Year” honors and a second place feature award in the annual Editorial Excellence Awards presented by Merion Publications Inc. In her free time, Lynn is typically stuck in traffic, shopping, reading, constructing poorly made crafts and hanging out in and around her hometown.
