In reality they are charging $0.39 for each additional calendar, not 0.39¢.

Good catch!

Opening the Xmas cards we got this year, about 50% of them are the
Costco 6" x 7½" photo greeting cards. They are a very good deal at 30¢
per print including the envelope (a 5"x7" print costs 39¢). I just use
the blank card and create my own card in Adobe Illustrator.

I sent them a message about the price being wrong and someone called me
about it today. I had a very hard time explaining to him that 0.39¢ is
not the same as $0.39, but I think he finally understood, or he just
said he did.

I feel like the guy that called Verizon about the same thing:

Very amusing. They quoted him 0.002¢/KB (2¢/MB) but they charged him
$0.002/KB ($2/MB). He never could get the Verizon rep to admit that
0.002¢ was not the same as $0.002.
