When you can’t cram your wallet into your very tiny clutch or don’t want to carry a wallet around with you, a phone card case can help you accomplish that goal. If you know that you’re going to be glued to your phone anyway, you might as well opt for a phone case that can also hold a few cards. That way you can bring out that itty bitty clutch everywhere.
There are several different types of phone card cases. There are cases where you can store cards in the back of your phone with a pop-open door attachment. You have to gently pry the back of your case open to get at your cards, so there’s little risk of them falling out.
Or, if you’d rather have them where you can see them, there are two options for you. You could opt to buy a cute case that has a pouch for cards, so your cards are secured against the back of your phone, but you can pull them out easily when it’s time to pay the bill or show your ID at the door. If you’re very attached to your current phone case and can’t bear to part with it, don’t worry, you don’t need to throw out your case to have a holder. There are adhesive card holders that you can simply stick on the back of your phone case. We picked the best phone card cases that will help you determine which type of case is right for you.
