    I get that everybody is saying that they spent $148.33 dollars, and I obviously can see why, but didn't they buy 15,000 pennies? So then the price would be $150.00? I think they probably just couldn't use some pennies, lost some pennies, and/or didn't need some pennies meaning that they subtracted a few (67 to be exact) from the final number.
