I was disappointed to see the other thread on this topic veer south and end up in the wasteland but I want to bring this up again.
On numerous occasions since we lost our penny I have found that retailers are rounding up when I pay with my debit card. It’s occurred to me that these businesses could be using this rounding rule as a way to milk a few more cents here and there out of their customers. The rule provides an excuse of ignorance or making a mistake and I quite frankly don’t like it. I’ve even had a retailer round an .07 to .10 which should be rounded to a .05 when using cash. This was on debit however. A penny here or there is not much per transaction to the individual but as a retailer it could end up in thousands of dollars extra per year. Thoughts?
