Wonder Wallet Reviews
As Seen on TV wallets and organizers have been a mainstay of late night television for decades.
Bulky wallets have always been a problem, dating back to the invention of the wallet itself. With Wonder Wallet, we are told that the days of sitting on a bumpy, bulky wallet are over. While such a prospect is enticing, we first wanted to know how they would manage to fit everything into a smaller space than a standard wallet.
We were surprised to find that Wonder Wallet did manage to hold a respectable number of items in a flatter space than expected. This is achieved by two-pocket card holders, as opposed to standard card holders. These card sleeves place cards side by side, which allows you to hold a larger number of cards in a smaller space. Some reviewers have asked if the wallet actually holds cash – which it does – although the advertising barely highlights this fact. When filled with 24 cards and some cash, Wonder Wallet will measure about an inch thick, and it bends in the middle, allowing additional contouring when seated.
Wonder Wallet includes RFID blocking, which is a current buzzword when it comes to products that hold credit cards. In just the past month, we have evaluated Lock Wallet and Card Lock, both of which highlight the ability to prevent credit card skimmers from stealing vital data. Although the risk of theft via RFID technology is largely overstated, many consumers seem to want this feature, thus it is a wise addition to the product.
If we were to find fault with the product, it could be stated that, although it is marketed to both genders, Wonder Wallet has the look of a man’s leather wallet, which some women may not find aesthetically pleasing. The other potential drawback is that its size of 5.25″ x 4″ may not fit well in smaller pockets.
While Wonder Wallet saves space in thickness, it increases size, which makes it a rather large accessory that may not fit comfortably in all types of pockets.
You may also have an option to “upgrade” to better wallet, which we did not do. If you purchased the upgraded wallet, please let us know your thoughts.
