Rogue Wallet PassportGuard & WalletGuard Anti-Skimming ProtectorSleeve
Really? This works?
I don't really have a way to check whether these paper envelopes work or not, but they're PAPER. --not even heavy paper. They're just like a regular stationery envelope. Seems like the RFID blocking wallets and hard cases you can buy from travel stores and catalogs would provide more protection, but again, how would I be able to tell? Can't say these paper envelopes make me feel any safer than my wallet does though.
Makes me feel safer
I can't test that these actually work for myself like they showed on TV, but they make me feel safer. You see identity theft stories in the news all the time. The presentation they did on this made me buy them. If you're not sure about these, I recommend you watch the video. It shows exactly how these work. I have many credit cards, and they are now all in these little sleeves. They are quite durable, and I even have 2 cards in some. I gave a few to my mom. She likes them as well. They fit very well in my wallet, and are easy to remove. I recommend them.
Peace of mind
Love the feeling of my cards of choice being secure. Gave them to my sons & their familes also. I don't do that much traveling but they do. Seeing subjects in the news about skimming and people able to read your cards and not even being near them concerned me. This product gives me peace of mind concerning my credit or debit cards. Thanks for the product!
Great product!!! Does what it claims!
Recently received this purchase and gave two to my husband for his cards. We have had our information stolen before on vacation and also here at home. He is a fuel oil tanker driver and needs to get into different terminals to fuel his tanker for deliveries to stations. These terminals are very securely guarded and drivers have to have cards to access the product. So he put it to the test. He passed the card while it was in the sleeve and nothing happened, then he took it out of the sleeve and his card was accessed. . So the sleeve does keep it secure.
We are both using them now and I am grateful they are not heavy. I always used my bank sleeve that came with the card anyway so I just switched them out. It's an added sense of security. I may get some as gifts too. Thanks !
Worth the $$
I always use this product. To me the cost (and even the price of shipping) was worth the peace of mind.
Dont Purchase they set off store alarms !!!!
I just received these and put in my wallet. After going to 3 local stores and setting off the exit theft alarms couldnt figure out why, but when I went to my 4th store and it went off again. I stopped backed up and pulled one of these guards out of my wallet and held up to the alarm sensors and sure enough it went off. So I would not use them if you dont want to be looked at like a thief at every store you enter or exit. Something in these are setting off sensors in any store that has the exit theft protector alarms. Or if you dont wanted to be padded down on a daily basis. Not sure if they thought about these guards setting these alarms off HORRIBLE IDEA. And very embarrassing!!!!!
"I Feel Safe Now"
Received my package today. Immediately stopped what I was doing, got my credit cards and put them in a sleeves. They went back into my wallet very easy. I already had a credit card idenity theft occur recently. Now I feel safe. Thank you QVC for having this product.
Glad I made this purchase
I went right to Rogue Wallets site and came back to order these from QVC. Their package was a better deal than Rogue. But the shipping charge was way too much considering they are just pieces of paper with hardly any weight. I realize that includes processing, but still quite high. That's the only negative. Not all my credit or debit cards have rfid chips, but I feel my cards were protected in these. Went to France, and would not have wanted to be in 6 airports without feeling protected. My passport was dated before they started chipping them. but gave one to my friend. When I renew passport, I'll have one to protect it. Glad I made this purchase.
Useful! (Makes a GREAT GIFT!)
I ordered two sets (one for myself and one for my husband). We like them. The sleeves easily fit over my credit cards and slip nicely into my wallet slots w/out any problems. I like that the back is blank. I wrote what card was in each so I could quickly identify which card was in which sleeve when shopping. I find that there is no delay in checking out. I can easily remove the sleeve from my wallet and the card from the sleeve. It's so worth the extra piece of mind and security. Why wouldn't you get these? Makes a GREAT GIFT for someone who has everything.
Not a good explantion on QVC's presentation
I just received my protector sleeves & I'm sure they will work just fine if & when my credit cards every become 'smart cards'. No where in the presentation did I hear them say your cards have to have Radio frequency symbol on them, they talked about radio frequency but just in how the scanners pick up the information. I purchased these & told a friend of mine about them. She went to her local bank & asked & they said the scanners only work if your card has the radio frequency symbol on it. She checked all hers & none at it on, I checked mine & none at it on so basically these will do me no good. Since the cost to ship them back is close to half the price I paid I will keep them in case this becomes standard practice for issueing cards in the future but the bank also said you can request cards that do no have the RF chip inside. QVC needs to give better explanations on these things in the presentation. Since I won't know how it works I only gave it 3 stars.
Don't think this works
I use a credit card size ID that I scan to make entry at my work. I put my ID in one of these to test and I hate to say, it failed. If the scanner at work could read my ID I'm sure other scanners can read a credit card through them. I was disappointed in the product, I really hoped it would work. Thanks QVC for trying.
It does work****
I had a couple stores check this out and it really does work.. I also know someone who lost their credit card information from a skimmer. I know it is a piece of paper but it does protect you cards....
