So...what? Everything is going to be rounded up to 5cents? That's just retarded.


Edit:
Since when has retarded been censored. Wtf, UG?

Uhh.. No. Read the article. With debit/credit card you pay the exact amount still. With Cash, it gets rounded down.

And are you seriously THAT poor, you're breaking your balls over 4 cents?

I think this is silly and I enjoy being able to have any amount of money I could want to spend in a newsagents shop in cash in my pocket.

No, I just think it's stupid to not have pennies.

As for rounded down, how are your retailers not going apeshit over this? They're losing money every time someone rounds down. Yeah, a few cents ain't a big deal. Multiply that times a thousand or so, they'd probably lose $100+ a week.

Australia doesn't have pennies, 5 cents is the lowest denomination of currency(and people here want that gone).

There's really not any difference in revenue made/lost/ and money spent/lost

For instance, If you buy a ton of groceries and it turns out to be 104.54 cents, they'd round up a cent, But if it's 104.43, they round down.

really, you're either making or losing a couple pennies on each transaction. and then it's only things payed in cash.

there's just no difference. people here even hate the 5 cent coins, they think it's too small
It's over simplified, So what!

But how do you specify how many assorted sweets/gums you want from an ice cream van?

you really should read the article.

this will save us millions of dollars a year in taxes. also stores will round up or down to the nearest 5 cents, so it works out.

Buy more icecream you cheap ass

Or get the smallest kid into the van as you distract the icecreamman to knock him out, tie him up, steal his icecream van and hold it ransom against the guy until he caves into your demands. Which would be a few assorted lollies

I'm talking about mixtures of cola bottles, marshmallows, jelly babies, midget gems, and all those other sweets formally known as 1p sweets wherby one could purchase an assortment costing as much as whatever one had in one's eight year old pockets. Canadians are once again killing childhood. I don't care if most bags were 10p or 20p, I'm sticking up for the kid that had 6p and wanted six sweets

edit: someone mentioned Austrailians earlier too, I dunno, yer all wrong'uns and you'd have blown yourselves up by now if not for the steady reign of Queenie

Oh well. I don't really use change. Every purchase I make is with cash or with debit. The only time I might use change is for parking and even then it's better to just have cash. Once I get 100 or so dollars in change I just deposit it at the bank

Retailers pay around 3% for credit/debit card transactions, that's much more than rounding off pennies.

Well, according to the article their two cents rounds down to nothing. So the thoughts of Canadians are quite literally worthless.

If wikipedia is any bit accurate then that statement isn't true anymore (for post-1982 pennies). Still costs 2x as much to produce one penny.
