The Bellroy Sleeve :heart: Β£49.99



The Akielo from Amazon Β£12.99


The Bellroy is a lot less bulky and much easier to get the card out from the front.

Wouldn’t discount the Akielo but there’s a major quality difference and as I’ve not had a wallet in some years now, the Bellroy is perfect.

Old wallet fell apart, so bought a new one recently! Barbour Colwell Billfold. Really happy with it so far at Β£42! Big fan of the tartan detail on the front card slots.

Nothing massively exciting! There was a brief period in… 2018? when Waitrose and John Lewis were running a trial of combined loyalty cards. Not sure if they kept doing it or not!

Nice! I don’t live anywhere near either of these things :sweat_smile: good idea though.

It is rather handy! Having two separate cards for the same company was a bit silly :joy:

Programmable NFC tag inside :exploding_head:

Never even thought this type of stuff would be a thing. A quick Google search tells me there’s not many wallets with this.

β€œIll never forget my pin now!”.

How stupid(?). So that when someone gets your wallet, they’ll be able to scan the NFC tag and get all your PINs too!

The description says things about phone numbers and passwords but you know someone will do pin. :rofl:

Why do you need to store phone numbers, passwords etc. on a wallet, when the smartphone you need to programme it already does these things better?

And to increase the price by at least $25 when the extra material cost is more like Β’50

Interesting design.

I’d love a Ridge but they so spenny.

Deal of the day: Spigen RFID Signal Blocking Wallet Credit Card Holder with Cash Strap - Black Amazon.co.uk

Seems a good alternative to Ridge?

Depends if your idol is Robocop.

Maybe it’s just me, but even with the discount, Β£25 for 2 pieces of aluminium and a bit of elastic seems a bit steep.
But each to their own.

I personally don’t like them but others had mentioned Ridge previously so thought I’d post it.
