  • Because every company, catalogue, manufacturer, sale offers online and in stores believe every consumer is stupid enough to think that the product will cost less because .99 will actually make it cheaper and one penny would make a difference.

  • So we can use pennies in order not to get pennies. If we didn't have pennies we would get them every time we shopped and soon be up to our bippies in the little things.
