The Internet has made it possible for folks to sell virtually anything you can think of, including some things that can actually be had for free!
There are also things being sold online for prices that greatly exceed their true worth.
One of my favorites is this incredible deal that I ran across while shopping on Amazon.
Yep, it’s true. You can actually purchase $10 worth of $2 bills for only twenty bucks (or thereabouts)!
Of course you do get a handy plastic protective case for each bill so there’s at least a little added value in this deal.
But kidding aside, you can get all the $2 bills you want at your local bank and they’ll cost you a grand total of…wait for it…$2 each!
Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE shopping at Amazon for the reasons stated in this post. The “deal” featured here is actually from the U.S. Treasury, not Amazon itself.
I said all of the above to say this: Not all “deals” you see on the Internet are true deals. Keep that in mind as you shop online.
And as they always say, “Buyer Beware!”.
On a slightly different note, check out this short video to see what happened when an 8th grader tried to pay for her school lunch with a genuine $2 bill!
