The penny is a castaway coin so valueless that many drop it on the ground. But this one-cent piece can bring you good luck, score you a Squirrel Nut Zipper candy and get you a phone from Amazon Wireless.

If you point your browser to Amazon's wireless department, you'll discover that the online retailer has dropped the price on all Verizon Wireless phones in its online catalog. For a penny, you can grab a Droid Bionic, a Droid Incredible 2 or any number of feature phones in this sale.


As you'd expect, each penny phone requires you to sign up for a new two-year customer agreement with Verizon. The sale starts October 11th and lasts until October 17th 11:59 p.m. PDT. If you don't mind the contract, a penny for a phone is an excellent deal. [Amazon]
