This sale is money: An identity-protecting travel wallet for $10 — could 53,000+ shoppers be wrong?

There are wallets, and then there are wallets. Most of the time, you just need something to hold cards and cash while you run to the store. But come your next vacation, you'll need something a little (make that a lot) smarter and more secure — something like the Travelambo RFID Blocking Wallet. It's inexpensive, spacious and comes with built-in protection against identity theft. This handmade leather bifold has 16 card slots, one clear-window ID pocket and two zippered compartments for bills — and right now, you can grab one for as little as $10.

Designed to rein in the bulk of your essentials, this wallet is made with genuine leather for a luxurious feel without the luxury price tag.

Why is this a good deal? 💰

At just $10 in black, the Travelambo wallet is near its lowest-ever price in this neutral shade, and even lower than it was on Black Friday — meaning it's time to pounce if you'd like to grab one before your spring and summer travels. Trips are stressful enough as it is, so $10 to stay better organized seems like a small price to pay. You'll also grab savings in some other colors, like champagne and deep blue.

Why do I need this? 🤔

Thousands of shoppers say the wallet helps them keep everything in one place without the bulk of a traditional wallet. A special bonus is the wallet's built-in RFID protection. RFID — or radiofrequency identification — blocking protects sensitive information from being scanned from your cards while in your wallet, and we feel it's a must if you're traveling. Happy customers also say the feature makes them feel more secure. And, speaking of security, reviewers are also fans of the zippers and two-button closure, which provide more layers of protection.

Bonus: Each super-slim wallet is handmade by a team of artisans — and it's available in 30 colors, though prices vary depending on your selection.

What reviewers say 💬

A whopping 53,000+ Amazon reviewers have given this skinny legend a five-star rating, with many praising the wallet's low profile and high level of security.

Pros 👍

"When my go-to wallet/purse store closed, I was worried about finding cute and functional accessories," recalled this five-star fan. "When my wallet started to literally fall apart, I had to do something. Enter Amazon and this darling wallet. The style is quite functional for me, and the color (a poppy orange) makes it easy to spot in my dark, cavernous pocketbooks. ... Love this in 100 ways."

"It creates much more room in my purse than my previous wallets, yet is substantial enough to carry on its own," wrote a delighted five-star reviewer. "And I love that it is RFID-safe, as I travel extensively out of the country. The wallet is very stylish."

"I've had this wallet for two years," reported a longtime fan. "You can see that the edges are starting to wear a bit, and that's where signs of wear ends! This wallet is incredibly durable and user-friendly. The interior is my favorite part, because I can organize all my cards, gift cards, and merchandise credits, as well as punchcards for easy grabbing. The zippers have never gotten stuck, or accidentally opened on their own, so no unexpected coin avalanche."

"This hot little number fits into my purse, protects my info and keeps my change from falling out," said another happy shopper. "I want one in every color, but for now I will remain pretty in pink."

Cons 👎

Many shoppers appreciate the wallet's super-slim profile, but some find the accessory's spaciousness to be lacking. "Roomy but thin. Card slots are very tight," cautioned final reviewer. "Take that as advice, good or bad."

A final writer noted, "My biggest complaint is that paper money does not easily fit into the zipper portion and doesn't make change accessable in the other zip compartment. Credit cards are difficult at best to get out of the slots."

Made with genuine leather and 21st-century protection, this wallet is the epitome of top-notch form and function. Score it in a fun color like orange, blue or pink for just a few more dollars.
