What was your smallest credit card transaction ever made?
Mine was 3 cents at USPS.
I went to the post office once to pick up a package and mail 3 items. I handed the clerk the 3 items that had a stamp on each. She told me that the stamps were not forever stamps and I was 1 cent short on each. I told her I don't have cash or change on me, and none in my car. She said I'd let you go, but she'd have to do that for everyone. I said I'll go check under my seat in my car, maybe I can find 3 pennies in my car or in the parking lot lol. Couldn't find 3 cents. I asked if they take credit cards. She said yes, so I charged 3 cents. With merchant fees, they would been better off forgetting the 3 cents.
If you're keeping score at home, I got no rewards for that transaction lol.
99¢ is the smallest I have ever charged to a credit card. Back before they took taxes for online purchases.
I'm new to the board and wasn't aware of the old post.
I'd like to charge 1 cent someday but it's harder to do these days.
Unrelated yet related: I once got a check in the mail for 1 cent from health insurance. I really wanted to cash it at a teller but ended up using mobile deposit.
Was that at a restaurant? It's a pain to pay with a restaurant gift card where there's less than gratuity left on the card and you have to whip out a credit card to pay the remaining gratuity.
I had a $50 gift card for Chili's that I used and the bill came to $50.01. The server told me she got a penny and added it to my bill and I was good. I said I have to pay the tip and leaving 1 cent to charge would have been better, because I think you need something other than 0 to add a tip.
She ran my card (I guess) for $0 and I added the tip. It took a week before it showed up on my account.
My smallest is the same as yours lol. I came up just barely short at the Walmart self checkout. Charging three cents was somewhat enraging.
