    Default What type of wallet do you carry?

    At dinner tonight with a co-worker we discussed wallets as we each pulled ours out to pay for dinner. He had a Harley Davidson wallet. One of those checkbook type ones, like Landpoke likes with snaps.

    I have a leather bifold I bought from the Quiksilver Outlet store in Provo back in 1997. I don't ever want to have to replace it. I remember buying this wallet to replace my last one and it was a sad day.

    It's similar to this one but just has a barely visible embossed tsunami logo in the corner:



    I tried using a money clip but I don't like keeping anything in my front pocket unless I am headed through a crowd.

    I've got a black faux-leather wallet I bought from Wal-Mart. My old wallet had a zipper and attached by velcro.

    My wallet is basically a small "card case." It's not really even a case. It holds three cards on one side and a few bills on the other side. It's roughly the size of a credit card. Just a tad bigger.

    mine is like a thin metal case, almost like what time is describing, except a bit bigger than the dimensions of a credit card.

    I hate carrying anything in my pocket...wallet, keys, brush....

    I've had a really nice Eddie Bauer doeskin wallet for the last 7-8 years and it shows no signs of wearing out. If and when I think I'll look for a Tommy Bahama one on ebay or something. My dad has one the last few years of his life and it was beautiful and always looked brand new and the leather was as soft as the back of your earlobe.

    I carried a leather (probably faux-leather) bi-fold wallet with a flap for many years - similar to this but with a much lower price tag:


    My wife gave me a Columbia leather bi-fold wallet as a gift a few years ago - probably hoping that I would finally dispose of my old, weathered wallet. When my Old Faithful finally gave up the ghost a few months ago, I pulled out the new Columbia from long-term storage and have been using it since. It's falling apart already.

    What are you guys using? Any suggestions for practical, long-lasting, inexpensive wallets?

    I have the ridge, because I got tired of the back pocket worn wallet sign in my pants. But unless I'm rifling through the first three cards on top (which is what I do 90% of the time), it's pretty inconvenient. Also, my kids mock me mercilessly because I have it

    Ive really liked this slim fold. Super slim, even with a lot of stuff in it. I included a quarter so you can see the thickness of my peni.....er....wallet when itís full. Itís a stretchy material so it holds the cards in tight enough that they donít slip out.

    This is with 12 plastic cards, a temple recommend and 4 bills (all large, of course).

    Iíve has this one for 2 years. Iím betting itís about halfway through its useable life. Iíll buy another when it dies.

    That one looks plenty thin enough but I don't like the credit cards showing.

    I've always gone for the thinnest wallet I can get that folds in half, has one interior section for money, one clear window for my Driver's License and a few pockets for credit cards. Sometimes there is an extra section behind the cards where you can stuff a few papers like medical cards and such. But how thin it is is more important than anything else. Must not be more than 1/4" when empty.

    Every five years or so my wallet will start to wear out and I'll track down another one. They can be found at a reasonable price.

    Something similar to this - about as minimalist as you can get. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    This has worked alright for me. I always carry about 7-8 business cards so the big pocket works for that, but it is still small enough to fit in my front pocket. The RFID works well enough that I have to take my key card out of it.

    You could replace most of those dumb plastic cards with one metal one....



    And here is a pro tip... Just take a picture of your temple recommend with your iPhone. The bar code will scan just fine at the temple off your iPhone's screen, especially if you have an 11 Pro Max.

    I wouldn't mind replacing all my cards with Marisa Robertson's card, but I'm not sure she would like that.

    Apple Will Manage 10% Of Global Credit Card Transactions By 2025, Analyst Says

    Apple Pay is a sleeper billion-dollar business.

    Weíve seen Apple services and subscription revenues skyrocket over the past few years as the company turns away from hardware-only revenue and towards valued-added services. One of those is Apple Pay, a purchasing technology that uses traditional credit card mechanics, but clothes it in modern, simple, and powerful technology.

    According to one analyst firm, Appleís winning that battle.

    Despite launching just a few years ago in only one country, Apple Pay now accounts for 5% of all global credit card purchase volume, according to financial research firm Bernstein
    [...]
    The World Payments Report says that global non-cash transaction volumes hit $539 billion in 2017, and were growing at 12% annually. Others have estimated global payments volume at about $1 trillion.

    10% of a trillion dollars ó or even $539 billion ó is a lot of money.

    And that means Apple can collect a lot of money along the way.

    Apple Pay doesnít return much revenue for Apple per transaction: itís just another way of using your credit card. Every time you use it, however, Apple gets a .15% cut of that payment. According to one estimate by 9to5Mac, if just 5% of transactions happen via Apple Pay, Apple would make $525M just in the United States at 2018 transaction volumes.

    At 10%, thatís over a billion dollars.
    [...]
    And thatís revenue Apple can essentially sit back and collect. Itís basically passive income, because Goldman Sachs and Mastercard do the hard work, while Apple provides some hardware and some software.

    This should grow year-over-year.

    That will likely concern some financial companies. What if Apple can convert all, or even a substantial fraction of Apple users to Apple Pay, or especially Apple Card? All of a sudden that billion-dollar business grows even more.

    ďThere are indeed plenty of reasons to worry that Apple may attempt to disrupt the payments ecosystem,Ē says Harshita Rawat, a Bernstein analyst, in a research note.

    Thereís a lot of reasons for Apple to do so.

    And they all look like cold hard cash.

    Given how long apple pay has been around, not bad.

    Yeah, she is the strategy lead for apple and most likely makes good coin.
