How do you carry your cards?

Postby JMR » Sat Mar 01, 2014 6:55 pm

Sort of a silly question here but thought it would be interested to hear peoples answers. This form is all about Credit Cards, my question is how does everyone store their credit cards. Do you use a wallet (what kind), money clip (metal or leather), cash cover, rubber band or do you just have a wad of cash and cards in your pocket haha. I personally have a Piedmont Ostrich Cash Cover that I have been using for a couple of months. Before had a leather money clip/ card holder.

Looks good! Keep the wallet not bulky, thats why I went the cash cover route.

I *have* a wallet that I keep most of my stuff in that lives in my purse. It's compact-ish (just a smidge more than width and height of a credit card), but thick due to having numerous credit cards, store cards, insurance cards, and other such stuffed in there. As such, I usually just stick a credit card in my pocket (maybe my license, too, if I think I might need it) if I'm just hiking up to the store/restaurant 2-3 blocks away and don't want to haul the purse. I almost never have cash.

Interestingly compared to people in most of the US, my wallet is more important for the RFIDs I've got stashed in there than anything else. I have my transit debit card in the ID holder on the front and my Zipcard (card for hourly rental cars) in the back, so that all I have to do if I want to use one of these is press my wallet against the target. The wallet will probably become obsolete in the next couple of years as our transit system has already announced plans to use a smart phone app for payment in the next couple of years, Zipcar probably won't be far behind in allowing me to access the car with just my phone, and I really only use one card on a day-to-day basis. I'd say within the next couple of years, your question will be "what security do you have on your phone" instead of "how do you store your cards?"

I was using the crabby wallet until it unraveled and fell apart. So now I use a leather card holder (Coach) which was a gift.

Any suggestions for a nice slim card holder/wallet?

I use a wristlet (miniature wallet/purse) from Coach that my mother gave me many years ago. Usually it's inside my purse unless I'm travelling light. I like the wristlet because it fits in a jean back pocket and can be clipped through a belt loop for security.
