You should exchange it for a 5 rappen coin and then throw it away.

Re: "I'm in the money!!!!" ( Amazon UK refund )

You reaolly are lucky. I just got one for £0.03. I don't know what I'm going to spend the money on. Maybe I'll get my OH a gift for Valentine's day after all.
What can I get him for 3p I wonder. Perhaps I should start a thread on it,

Re: "I'm in the money!!!!" ( Amazon UK refund )

This sort of money would buy a very decent gumball in the United States.

In hindsight, I should have taken the time to point that out in the US/UK thread......

Re: "I'm in the money!!!!" ( Amazon UK refund )

I got £50 from Bank of Scotland the other week (I nicely pointed out that their customer service wasn't brilliant: I'd had to explain the same thing to three departments and was on hold for 15 minutes) but I didn't expect that

My mother was threatened with small claims court and a poor credit rateing for not paying her -1p balance on a catalogue shop once. After 3 letters of threats and numerous phone calls they agreed not to sue her because they owed her a penny.
