Cards fall out
I have used this money clip less than a year. The money clip looks great and the clip works well. However, I have to be extremely careful as the credit cards are not securely held. After having my credit cards fly out multiple times, I am going to go back to a more traditional wallet. I like Levenger products but do not recommend this money clip.

Excellent slim wallet!
I used this wallet everyday for 7 years, and absolutely loved it! It still works just fine, but I have decided to go back to a traditional folding wallet as opposed to a money clip.
The size is perfect for your pocket, and I love that it holds so many cards. The magnetic clip has an added bonus for Canadians too - it will hold our coins tightly so you can carry a bit of change without having it rattle around in your pocket.
My only issues with the wallet are as follows:
1. The leather stretches slightly over time, so the cards tend to fall out if the wallet isn't stuffed as tightly as possible. This was the main factor in my decision to switch wallets - after dropping the whole stack several times in the grocery line, I decided to explore folded wallet options.
2. I agree with the other reviews that the clip should be moved slightly so that the bills don't hang off the edge.
3. The open end causes any paper stock (business cards, loyalty stamp cards) to become damaged at one end.
4. The powerful magnet has erased several hotel room card keys
Aside from these issues, I love the product. It's true that the clip won't hold a thick stack of bills, but I rarely carry more than 4-5 bills so it's not an issue for me.

Great for years...
I've had this wallet for about 8 years and have to say that I've never had a problem with it! Sure, the cards are loose enough to fall out in the pouch (I have 3 money cards, my driving licence and a couple of business cards), but because I'm aware of this I've never lost a card. The magnetic clip is strong enough to hold up to 10 folded bills without losing it's grip. I've used this everyday and apart from the fact that my stamped initials are barely visible anymore, the wallet itself only has shiny wear markings. Maybe since I got this one they've changed materials for this, but mine is definitely fantastic tool and I'll be replacing with the same 'if' I ever need to....

Recommend with caution
The magnets are not strong enough to hold more than a few folded bills. A stronger magnet or a spring clip would improve this. Also, the location of the clip should be adjusted so that the bills do not extend past the profile of the wallet.
Stylish & well made, but function trumps style in determining value.

Very poor design.The clip cannot hold many bills and the mechanism to hold the bills is not strong enough.I tried to put 10 $20 bills and it kept opening itself and the whole thing looks ungainly.

I received this as a gift and was impressed with the look and the quality of the material, but the functional design could have been so much better. I agree with one of the other writers that the money clip is turned the wrong way (opposite from the opening for cards) and more importantly, it is attached 1/2 inch from the end of the wallet which causes your bills, when folded, to extend out beyond the wallet. Even when turning the bills as shown in your picture, the bills extend beyond the wallet. I would suggest that you consider moving the clip closer to the end of the wallet for a cleaner function. also a couple of card slots on the opposite side would be a nice addition. I love your items, but I think the changes to this product were not improvements.

I purchased this wallet for my son-in-law for Christmas as he really loved it when he saw it in your catalog. He and his family live in NC and I am here visiting. My daughter just told me that he is very disappointed in it since the area where he puts his credit cards has stretched out so much that now his cards fall out. I see from other comments that several people have had the same problem. He no longer uses the walltet and I feel very badly that the product is now useless and a waste of money. I am learly about buying anything else from you which is a shame because he really likes other items in your catalog.

clip goes wrong direction
this is a replacement for the same wallet, the orientation of the clip is away from the opening for the cards(different from my last one) and they will fall out if you aren't careful. i literally wore out my last one, the quality is great, this one design change was not beneficial. i will keep it, but would replace it when the design changes back.

Clip faces wrong direction, should open w/ cards.

The Best I have ever owned.
I am ordering my third one, and also one for a close friend who noticed mine and liked it.
In short it is fantastic. I have used this format wallet for about 15 years now. Before Levenger and this particular wallet, I used one that had a metal clip, covered in thin leather. It would not erase credit cards, but the metal clip would quickly wear through the slim leather covering and then you were dealing with metal edges in your pocket. So, this magnet version was a great change over for me, and the total quality of this wallet is fantastic. I have never had the first problem, in about 10 years of use, of erasing a credit card. I have however, erased a hard drive on a laptop once. I pulled the wallet out of my pocket to grab a credit card to order something online, and accidentally set it down on my laptop. Ouch. But other than that one bad experience, I obviously love the wallet. LIke I said I am writing this review while ordering my 3rd and a first one for a friend.
I would also tell you that you need to be careful with how many cards you put it, because it will grow. And once you put in too many, it will expand to compensate, and then you cannot go back down in number of cards without them becoming loose, and falling out. Mu current one has expanded to 15 cards, a couple of blank checks, and a license! Be prudent with the volume of cards you place in it.
