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. 


When people are around, its more embarrassing than anything. They are thinking,  you don't have 3 cents on you and you have to FINANCE that amount lol.

Re: Smallest CC Transaction Ever Made?

I remember this one well. It was the BK Detour Event. Stopped in at my local McDonald's for a $1 soda and ordered a $0.01 Whopper, I think, at the BK across the street. Biggest joke run I have ever done. The credit card also offered up $0.25 back per transaction so the final amount due was -$0.24 when everything was done and over with. I literally got paid to buy something.

That is a good one and maybe my CC bucket list is to charge 1 cent. And I would LOVE it to be the post office. Unfortunately, most stamps now are forever stamps and 1 cent stamps are harder to come by.

Going from Holyhead to Dublin on the ferry and just had to have a Coke. 2.44 Euros, I think it was.

You can still buy them however they come on sheets of 20. Also the whole idea of forever stamps was to reduce and eliminate the headache of the $0.01 stamps as it was cheaper to forgive the cent than print the stamps.

I once charged 1¢ at Macy's, and it actually had to be done with a card.
