    Brilliant idea, once again thanks a lot

    Old Faithful in any kind of weather,

    And the Boulevards white with clover,
    For you old faithful pal of mine.

    Yes this is a great idea. I use to take a photo of all my cards side by side and keep the picture safe.

    Although not a huge selection of cards available on the last drop down menu, maybe an 'other' could be an option where you could add your own name (matalan, co-op points, library card.. etc etc). I was only able to add under half of what is in my purse, and also if there was any way of safely storing the card number?

    Great idea and very useful - will also be useful for reminding me who I need to tell about changing addresses in the future.The only other cards I have in my wallet which I'd like to see on here are my National Trust Membership card and a Pret Card.

    Hiya,

    Thanks for your feedback - we are getting loads of great extra suggestions and working on getting them into the tool as quick as we can.

    On your couple of queries though, we are unable to do them as they would mean keeping personal data, which we do not want to do (and this tool doesn't at all currently).

    What we are working on though is an extra, blank table for the printed version where you could add your own cards to help jog your memory - hopefully this will help

    Warning...
    DON'T click the email link to suggest new cards until you are finished. It opens in the same window, (or at least it did for me), and I lost all the details I'd put in. Not the end of the world, but a slight pain to have to re-do them.

    Also, I needed to edit the email address which the link inserted, as it appeared with the 'mail to' prefix. I didn't notice this until after I had pressed send, so of course it was rejected and yahoo helpfully wiped the message without saving it to drafts. Just a heads-up.

    This is an excellent tool, though. A big pat on the back to whoever thought it up. It will save me a lot of the time I used to spend doing this manually before going on holiday, and is also a great piece of back-up for everyday, particularly if you find it hard to read the tiny phone numbers on the back of the cards.

    SUGGESTIONS:

    1. Add a new column for General Enquiries/Customer Services. Then this could double as a one-stop phone book for contacting all your banks and credit card companies - without the need for a magnifying glass!
    2. Add a link to www.saynoto0870.com, and save money as well as time.

    Cheers guys!

    Marigold

    EDIT: Oops sorry, there is a saynoto0870 link; it's down the left hand side with the tips and advice.

    Thanks - but there's a bug.
    Thanks for such a useful tool! This could give me additional peace of mind.

    However, when entering my cards I made a mistake, and when I went to hit the "remove" button against the erroneous card, a different card was removed. I tried again and again, and each time it was not the one I wanted to remove, but some random other one. I ended up removing them all and starting again, since I couldn't remember which ones were now missing.

    Nevertheless, a great tool to have available.

    Could you have come up with a better name for the website - it sounds like a bleedin' 'wipe off your debt' claims management company

    Seems useful

    Small spelling error on the 'store electronically' section - it reads:

    Important we don't store any personal details, you link is just to a set of cards and phone numbers.
