As of today, the banks stop issuing pennies. They’re still accepted as legal tender, but they’ll begin to phase out of circulation. We still have lots, but eventually, we’ll move to a rounding system for cash purchases. For instance:
- at .01 and .02, we’ll round down to 0.00
- at .03 and 04, we’ll round up to .05
- at .06 and .07, we’ll round down to .05
- at .08 and .09, we’ll round up to .10
We’ll let you know before we make the move to rounding. When we do, it will apply only to cash purchases: debit and credit card sales will be processed as usual. Enjoy your pennies while you’ve got ‘em!
