Why do most stores charge .99 cents for things (e.g. $1.99, $349.99). It's really annoying to me.?

    It is a psychological thing. It started a long time ago when stores though it would sound cheaper to say $1.99 than to say $2.00. I never bought into it either. It is deceptive and shows that people cannot think for themselves.
