I want a nice wallet to house my new prime cards. :)
I've added an AMEX BCE and Discover More to my prime collection and was thinking of buying a name brand wallet to store them. It would be my first name brand wallet because in the past ten years, I've only owned two cheap $40 wallets from Macy's. That's right, I averaged one wallet every 5 years so I don't mind spending a good amount for something that will last me a long time. Is it worth spending $300 for a Gucci or Prada wallet? Louis Vuitton seems a little too much at $500. What kind of walllets do you guys use? Doesn't matter if you are male or female. :smileyhappy:

A nice Louis Vuitton wallet will last you a long time. I've had mine for about 10 years, so worked out about $35 per year... and it still smells (almost) new! Definitely shop around though, some places are way too expensive.

I have a Tommy Hilfigure wallet that I've had since 2007.  I don't carry my wallet with me too often.  Most of the time I keep it in my backpack which I carry all the time.  My backpack is like an office on wheels.  I certainly would not spend over $50 on a wallet.  Now if you were talking about designer sunglasses, I would spend up to $300.  Protecting the eyes is priceless.   Everything in your wallet can be replaced.

I don't know the brand of my wallet since the name has worn off long ago.

 

I tend to loose nice wallets.

 

LOL my dad  asked about the gator wallet be gave me 5 years after it went to wallet heaven.  I should have told him I left it at the beagle farm in VA where he and my mom told us Georgy Girl went when we were kids.

Stewart Stand Wallets:

 

http://www.amazon.com/Stewart-Stand-Driving-Wallet-Silver/dp/B002IEW9UU/ref=sr_1_25?s=apparel&ie=UTF...

 

I have one - there is no area to place cash - but holds 6 cards and you can put small pieces of paper on the inside.  It's super slim.  Can put in front jeans pocket. 

 

It blocks RFID readers.  And it's metal - it feels really weird (in a good way) to brush your finger along the outside!

 

About $60-70.  High recommend - they have other types just search on amazon!

Broccoli rubber~band around wad of cash with cards tucked in. It's more or less free and ensures street cred anywhere.

Those wallets look  too homely for the asking price.
