What Can You Buy on With One Penny?

Updated on October 18, 2014

Call of Duty PS3 For One Cent

A few weeks ago I was looking on for a PS3 game for my son who wanted it so that he would have the whole series of Call of Duty games to date.

I found the game quite quickly but was unwilling to pay the price that they were asking for it, so I clicked on the used box on the left hand side of the page and to my surprise the game was on sale, used for the grand total of one whole penny, the seller had a 99% rating so I ordered the game.

Three days later my son was playing the game, Happy to have the full set.

This got me to thinking what else could I buy on for one penny and the research began.

Please remember though you do still have shipping costs to pay but it still works out a lot cheaper than paying full price.

      Just want to say thanks for this hub. I discovered it a couple of months ago, and since then I have went on amazon each month, spending max £20 on CD's and a couple of books here and there. I currently have 30 CDs that I have to find space for, and each of them only cost me £1.27 in total, after packaging! Great hub. Voted up, useful and beautiful!

      Such great tips. I have bought books for little more than a few pennies. Of course there are the shipping charges but still an incredible bargain. Thanks a million $$$$ - there are truly bargains to be found here on Amazon.

      Oh and it's time to go dancing - yay!

      This is great. I never knew that. I know I can buy loads of ebooks for free. Not that free is always good cause you don't know the quality of the book. Though I voted for I'm in the mood for dancing (cause that option was quite funny and I like funny) I will go penny hunting just to see what I find. Thanks!

      I have wondered if the people selling for a penny are laundering money for some crime organization.

      You forgot books! lol! I always buy my books from Amazon a penny a time! and the great thing is they are always in perfect condition! all depending on the seller, some are a bit tatty, but others are brand new. There is one in particular I believe the name is Themarketplace. all in one word, I never knew about the games or the skin products though, nell

      When I've sold books there, I found a lot of them selling for a penny. If it is something cheap to ship, you still get the $3.99 for shipping and they make their money that way. I think you can pay for a membership and get less fees that way.

      I never thought about looking for anything else. Thanks for the idea.

      James - I just clicked on your amazon link and bought a face moisturizer for a penny plus a retinol cream for 2.98( the last time I bought retinol I paid 63.00.) The shipping was a little high - 9.98 + tax but still a whopping difference in savings. I'm happy:) Now, I'm going back again to purchase more bargains. What fun!
