ShortStoryFilter: Lamp that you have to sell for half what you paid?

I read a short story once about ten years ago, it was in a compiliation of short stories but I don't remember the title or author. The part I remember from the plot is that there's a magic lamp that gives wishes but you have to sell it for half of what you paid for it. I believe the main characters keep trying to find lower currencies so they can continue reselling it.

Best answer: The Bottle Imp. All I remembered was the 'centime' part.

Cool. It looks like there's a card game based on this story.
