@capguncowboy this is not my product but I do feel the need to respond to this. The license holder of the Ivanka Trump clothing line is NOT the same as the license holder of the handbags. Completely different companies who produce the goods. I would know, as I used to be the buyer at a department store and had the Ivanka Trump brand for a short time. The company accused of switching out labels is not the same company who produces Adrianne Vittadini bags. Alternatively, you’d be surprised how many brands switch out tags before sending to offprice retailers. It’s a more common practice than you’d think.
@laurelnev Well and 42% people (62 reviews) on amazon gave it 1 star. Now that is impressive. Meh has reached a new low (you’d think the buyers would take customer reviews into consideration and see why they hate a product before they bought for meh. I guess not).
@sammydog01 The rare times I eat at McDonald’s, I tend to order through the app and use Apple Pay. It’s incredibly convenient. GPS kicks in when you get close and it gives you the option of how you want to pick up your food. Odds are I would have just used the same card my Apple Pay is linked to anyway.
You’re not doing well at selling to the ladies Meh. Two essential facts that you do not provide: (1) do I get to choose two different colors or would I be stuck with two of the same color? and (2) what is the largest size phone that will fit into the phone pocket? Are you sure you’re really trying to sell these?
@Fen_Star blocks “touch and go” identity theft. Thieves, armed with something about the size of a cigarette box, can pass that (inside their own bag) near yours and pick up the signals from your cards and thus use that to create new, fake, cards. When I first heard they were arming credit cards with those signals (pre 2008) my first thought was “there is money to be made making a thread/fabrics that block the signal and line all wallets, purses, pants pockets with that stuff”. Trouble was I am no engineer and didn’t have the money to pay one to figure out how to do it.
What is coming next is that they are putting this same stuff on boxes and/or inside the merchandise itself for inventory control, reading what is on a pallet while leaving/entering the warehouse without having to scan each box, etc. Currently a large van is needed to hold the box to pick up the signal if they are driving past your house, so thieves would need 2 vehicles - one to pick out the houses to rob based on what the signals tell them is (or is not) in there and one for the stuff they are stealing… but eventually someone will figure out how to miniaturize that too. Setting up something to block the signal from being read from your house (as in whole house protection) or put a tiny blocker on each valuable electronic, etc. that has one of those “tags” deep stuck inside it (that you can’t get out) would work too. Again. I am no engineer and don’t have the money for rent, let alone to develop this kind of solution.
@Euniceandrich I know nothing about those purses/wallets or whatever they are - ask a flask. You want to block the RFID signal from being able to be picked up so I am presuming that is what they are claiming to block.
My wallet has a 12V car battery cleverly sewn to it so I can jump start my car. I always have my wallet when I’m driving so I am confident that if my battery dies I’m in good shape. My pants back pocket bulges like a son-of-a-bitch and I have to sit at odd angles but the peace of mine is worth it. Really.
@jewelshound You could probably find a nice slimline case for it on Amazon! (Maybe you could buy a spare 12v battery for the other pocket so you could at least sit evenly. At the same time, you may have to move up to a convertible)
@jewelshound UPDATE: I now recommend a sealed battery. The doctors told me that the scarring will be covered by my underwear and a few minor skin grafts aren’t that big a deal these days. I grow wiser as I age and have these experiences.
i like the color of that holographic one. but…don’t need two of any such thing and actually don’t even need one - don’t care about the charging and don’t use a wallet. would be cool if it was a wristlet/clutch tho.
@jerk_nugget they actually call it blue holographic on one of the pages. All these companies just jumped on the bandwagon to use the word. Every time I see holographic makeup, I get excited, and then disappointed when it’s not actually holographic. Why they won’t call it iridescent or color shifting, I don’t know…
I actually kind of want the ridiculous blue one, but I certainly don’t need two. Plus, ain’t nobody got time for a lame-ass 2000 mAh battery, and there are no pictures indicating whether a 10000 mAh battery would fit in that pocket.
Wait a minute, I have two phones (no, zombie Scalia, I am still not a drug dealer) and can’t use phone wallets anyway.
