    I now have two wallets, the one I use with just the cards I need for a normal day, the other with all the other cards I never use but need somewhere to keep them safely together.

    My day-to-day wallet contains a card-size ballot paper magnifier, just in case there is some ultra-small print to read

    I'm guessing so with all the instant notifications from their app.

    Either way it works at pay@pump which is a must for me. The only bugbear I have is cash machines always bring up a message saying my card issuer may charge me and asks if I want to continue or not. You never get this with Visa debit cards.

    Also the instant notifications only happen if you have the app always open in the background.
