Penny For Your Thoughts? Maybe Not Anymore… [POLL]

pennies
Laurie Cataldo, Townsquare Media

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.

I’d be okay with no more pennies…as long as I wasn’t getting shortchanged. (Ha!) Seriously though, if business started keeping an extra $.03 every time, that would start to add up (albeit slowly).

Do you think we should stop using pennies here? Vote in the poll and add your comments below!
