    Marketing. People will happily buy things for £99.99 but will think paying £100 for it is too expensive :eek:
  4. It’s not copper. If you scrape off the surface there’s gold underneath.

    True. I always ignore the 99p. Would it was £99.

    Canada did away with theirs a couple of years ago and just round up or down depending if it’s a 3 (to 5) or a 2 (to 0) and so on.
    Wouldn’t be against it.
