Because when buying something quickly, you will generally only look at the
number of punds the object is, right? OK, I suspect that you don't, but I've
got a reasonable respect for your intelligence, and methodicalism (?), but your
average person won't think about the pennies, they're small change. It makes things
apear much cheaper, when really they're only 1 or 5 pence less.

Frightening thing is, it works !
