I'm curious - how many of you have enough gift cards, frequent buyer cards and such that you could use something like this for your purse, your briefcase, or your car?
It measures 3 inches by 5 inches, and holds about 80 cards.
My first reaction was to dismiss this because it would not be useful to me, and it's not something I've seen a need for among my clients. But I'd like to hear from a wider sampling of people.
A side note: The card cubby web site suggest you fill the cubby with cards and give it as a gift. If you like this idea, I'd like to suggest that you consider buying gift cards from local merchants instead of the big chains. Examples:
- You can get BookSense gift cards at many independent bookstores.
- I know my favorite carpet cleaner sells gift cards - a nice housewarming gift, perhaps, or a gift for people with kids and/or pets.
- There's a high-end grocery store near me that sells gift cards, both for the grocery store and the restaurant within the store.
