10p for me
did you get charge a transaction fee?
when using self service and I've run out of coppers. Mainly do it to annoy those gremlins who shout the numbers at you. God I hate them
I'd even argue £5.
I used to work in a shop when i was a lot younger, and the amount of people who'd try and buy an evening paper, or a packet of Rizla, or a bar of chocolate and pay on a credit or debit card was fucking stupid. Used to just not charge them sometimes, or pretend to put the money in myself, which for some reason used to really offend, not sure why.
someone once paid for one piece of pick and mix at the cinema and it came to 18p and I was stood there flabbergasted
probably one of those "credit check" things they do when they check you exist before you can sign up for say a phone contract or something
I cannot believe you thought of this...
and buy a packet of rizzla on my card, get £30 cashback and then look down on all the losers in the cashpoint cue
Most places for cashback are £1 minimum spend I've found... and my local Sainsbury's doesn't do cashback from the fag counter.
Just nip in and get some chewing gum, and avoid the queue.
said you can ask to just get 1p taken off your card and get cash back that way
once the woman in dunnes commented onme always using a card, though i finally braved this 'cashback' thing and realised it's a good way to get notes lower than 50 euro which is all you can get from cash machines
Took it to the self serves but I accidentally chose a card only one. 79p I think it was.
