Most wallets do a fine job handling the task they were designed to do, which is holding your money until you need it. But, these days, people are looking for items that treat their dollars like they're safely ensconced in Fort Knox. And frankly, that level of security is way beyond what most wallets originally signed up for.
Right now, about 1,000 purses and wallets get swiped every two minutes in the U.S. That translates to just under 300,000 wallets stolen every year in the U.S. alone. And, that doesn't even count the ones that end up missing due to…operator error.
The Cashew Smart Wallet takes its security duties just as seriously as its organizing abilities, safeguarding your money, your information, and you from many of the protection threats you face out in the world.
Successfully funded on Kickstarter to the tune of nearly $50,000, the Cashew is the world's first wallet equipped with a fingerprint reader. About the size of a thin smartphone, the water-resistant and scratch-proof Cashew will only open to your unique biometric signature. Or, you can electronically store up to 20 accepted fingerprints so someone close to you can get in if needed.
The Cashew not only grips up to 20 bills and seven cards in its technology-shielded casing, but when synced to your phone via Bluetooth, it also provides an electronic leash. That makes sure your wallet never leaves your side or, at the very least, will always reunite you two if you do something dumb.
If you leave the Cashew somewhere in your apartment or office, you can make the wallet buzz through the Cashew app. If it's stolen or you leave it somewhere and walk out of range, you'll receive a text alert and can use Crowdsource GPS to alert other Cashew owners where you lost it. Meanwhile, the card slots are also RFID protected to shield you from electronic theft as well.
The Cashew is also a workhorse, with a battery that lasts up to 9 months on a single charge.
Right now, the Cashew Smart Wallet is on sale at a third off its regular $149 price. But for a limited time, if you also enter the Presidents Day Sale code, PREZ2021 when you make your purchase, that can take an additional 15% off your total. With that extra discount, you can pick up a Cashew now for only $84.96.
