Personally, $20s go in the wallet.

Once it is broken, it goes into my back pocket with the change, basically rolled like "bar money"

That does two things... makes me think before breaking a $20, and it also helps eliminate the issue with dishonest vendors claiming "you only gave me $5, I need $3 more" when you paid for an $8 item with a $20.

I had that happen with a "cigar girl" at Cabo Wabo and ended up getting her booted from the club by the manager. If my wallet comes out of my pocket, I'm breaking a $20 or larger.

Or are transaction totals going to immediately automatically round to the nearest 0.05?

What about non-cash transactions? Will they still be run in cents?

Don't get me wrong... I'm with the plan on dumping anything smaller than even a dime. A dollar simply is not worth what it was 20/50/100 years ago and there really is no need for the smaller change (why Mexico still has anything smaller than 50 Centavos is beyond me!)... but in the world of accounting, rounding can introduce HUGE discrepancies. People have made millions (and gone to prison for it) by skimming "a few cents/dollars" from bank accounts. Amounts that aren't noticed by the customer, but amounts that add up in a big way once concentrated in one location.

So I see big problems with the transition if the ultimate goal is to eliminate the denomination, but at the same time transactions are not universally required to avoid the use of the smaller denominations.

It answers all the questions you posted .

Essentially , cash transactions will be rounded up or down after all items are tallied and taxes applied .

Credit or debit transactions are unchanged , ie the total can be $x.99

Pennies will be removed from circulations when they end up at financial institutions , but are legal tender as long as they exist
