Penny For Your Thoughts? Maybe Not Anymore… [POLL]
It never fails…you go to the store and something winds up costing $12.73. What does that leave you with? PENNIES. Annoying, useless pennies.
Unless of course you live in the Great White North. Are they onto something??
Canada will stop minting pennies within the next six months, which will reportedly save them 11 million dollars a year.
TheFW says businesses are being asked to return pennies to be melted down. They will begin rounding to nearest 5 or 0 in a bill’s total when it comes to giving change.
