Last week, my husband was the victim of credit card theft! We found out when his card was denied at the gas station at the worst possible moment. Once he looked at his account on his phone, it showed a few purchases in Austin, a city 45 minutes away from us. Well, we haven't been there in about 3 months! His card was shut down, and we had to apply for a new one. It was a huge hassle! So, somehow his card information was stolen right out of his wallet without it ever leaving his possession! How the heck does that even happen?!?! We have suspicions about when we purchased some lumber, the checkout girl had a friend sitting there on her phone. We believe that's when the theft happened since that was the last purchase my husband made before charges started showing up in Austin. So, somehow this girl stole his card info from 5 feet away!
When I was given the opportunity to try these nifty RFID card protectors out, I just about tripped over myself to go order them! Once the new card comes in, we're definitely keeping it in one of these! You really don't know how much you use your card in everyday life until you don't have it! It's a true pain!
Honestly, when I first opened the shipping box, I thought it was empty! They used a huge box and then taped this tiny credit card sized pack to a big piece of cardboard. They really could've saved some money just putting it in a regular sized envelope or something.
Once I unwrapped them,all I thought they were all too cute! As you can see, they're in a wide variety of designs that will fit anybody's style. There's a few that are a little feminine, but my husband will be happy to have any except the pink and the tiger striped one (which are my favorites!).
The outside seems to be a light cardboard type material, while the inside seems coated with some kind of aluminum type material.
I loaded all my cards in my wallet up in them, and they all fit very nicely! It looks pretty cute too! Overall I'm pretty impressed with how slim and nice looking they are. As if to they work or not, well time can only tell! But they sure look cute, and I feel a little more secure knowing that somethings guarding my cards now! I still don't get how someone can steal my card information without ever seeing the card, but I know firsthand that it's entirely possible!! Hopefully these nifty little cardholders can guard them now!
