Plastc Card could replace every card in your wallet.
Plastc Card is a credit-card sized mini-computer that stores up to 20 credit cards, debit cards, loyalty cards, access cards for doors, and more, so that you don’t have to carry all of them individually. Take a look:
According to the FAQ:
What type of cards can I store on my Plastc Card?
Your Plastc Card can store many types of cards, including loyalty cards (even cards with only barcodes), store cards, gift cards, debit/credit cards, and even access cards. We not only support traditional magnetic strip cards, but also newer cards which have Chip and PIN or contactless technology.
Looking through my wallet, it would be a real space saver since I generally carry two debit cards, four credit cards, a Public Library card, and a Golf ID card (the last two with barcodes), all of which could be replaced with Plastc. When I’m in the States, I usually carry a few gift cards too. Those could go on the Plastc card also.
According to the FAQ, Plastc will not immediately be able to be inserted into chip and PIN (EMV) machines, but that will be corrected with an “over-the-air firmware update shortly after the product ships.” Similarly, Plastc will not be usable abroad until an over-the-air firmware update.
Other than those two deficiencies, which I hope are soon corrected, Plastc looks awesome. It can be a space saver in your wallet, more secure to lose than losing a normal credit card, and the syncing with your phone is a cool feature.
I definitely plan to buy one to test out, but since I don’t know when it will ship or where I’ll be then (probably Europe), I’ll hold off on pre-ordering for now.
The all-in cost is $155. If you use a referral link, you get $20 off, so you pay only $135.
Is anyone else going to give Plastc a try?
