What We Do: CM4 presents their signature Q Card Case Pacific Green.
Thanks to Quiyst for a great review of our Q Card Case!
I’m having all sorts of iPhone-related luck today!
I have a problem with iPhone cases. I have way too many of them, and I tend to dress my iPhone differently for each situation. (Really, I have more cases than my wife has pairs of shoes. Come to think of it, I have more shoes than she does, too.) I just received this case in the mail today, and I can already tell that it’s a keeper.
In a very slim but protective form, it combines an iPhone 4/4S case with a wallet that holds “three cards plus cash,” though I use it to carry three credit cards, my driver’s license, and my concealed carry permit (the latter two being as thick as a few bills).
I’m usually a “big wallet” guy, but this allows me to grab my phone and have everything I really need to leave the house (short of my keys). I even took well-cropped pictures of all of my insurance cards and put them into a dedicated photo album on the iPhone so that I at least have the information with me.
I carry a bag to and from work anyway, so I put my old wallet (which still holds all the “other cards” I might need in a week) into my bag, so those things will at least be as close as my bag or the parking lot. I put my cash into one pocket with a nice silver money clip I’ve had for years but rarely used, and I put my phone into the other pocket. Even with the above-mentioned cards, the case still feels slim and good in the hand. It comes in a number of colors and runs about $31-39 depending on where you get it. (I bought mine on Amex points through Amazon, so it was essentially free.)
This is just hour one with the case, but it’s already lightened the load on my pockets considerably. I see why almost all the ratings on Amazon are 5-star; this is good stuff.
That big announcement we’ve been foreshadowing since last week will be announced tomorrow at noon.
Thank you so much for all of your support! It’s been an inspiration to have such a great community, and we’ll see you at lunch tomorrow!
