I saw the statement, “there are so many restrictions on (insurance) coverage that you won’t see a dime,” in the following sentence in the article of Time magazine (August 18), titled “Things you should stop buying now.”
“Credit-Card Payment Insurance: This “protection” can cost a few hundred bucks a year, and there are often so many restrictions and caveats on coverage that you won’t see a dime. Even if your claim is accepted, the insurance only pays the monthly minimum for a period of months.”
I assume “you won’t see a dime” means “you won’t be covered (compensated / remunerated) at all”, but I’m not sure.
There is no entry of “(don’t / can’t / won’t) see a dime” in any of Oxford, Cambridge, Merriam-Webster dictionary. Is such expression as “coverage (deal, agreement, transaction) you won’t see a dime” frequently used in conversation and writing?
Why can it be "won't 'get' a dime" or "won't 'recover' a dime," instead of "won't 'see' a dime"? Why is it 'see'?
Are there any other usages of “you won’t see a dime” than reference in financial context?
