If you can’t quite bring yourself to get rid of your wallet completely, a money clip card holder could be the solution for you.
Best explained as a hybrid product, a money clip card holder is exactly as it sounds – a money clip and card holder combo. Typically they’re made out of leather, but not exclusively.
Why choose a money clip card holder?
- Keep bills and credit cards separate
- Organize credit cards better – keep them in particular slots
- Credit cards don’t use up the capacity of the money clip
- Still tend to be slimmer than wallets

Bosca Old Leather Deluxe Front Pocket Wallet
A beautifully made money clip card holder from Bosca. It has ample storage capacity for everyday use, with 3 credit card slots and a center pocket that can be used to store receipts or other important items.
The money clip on the back that keeps currency secure is actually magnetic, something that most alternatives do not have.
And of course, with this being a Bosca product, you know exactly what sort of quality you’re getting.
Pros: Superb quality, money clip is magnetized, available in three different colors (black, cognac and dark brown)
Cons: Not the slimmest money clip card holder
Kenneth Cole Reaction Money Clip with ID Window
This lightweight money clip card holder from Kenneth Cole features an ID window on the front, with the money clip on the back.
Unlike the other products we looked at, it doesn’t have any dedicated card slots. There is room for a couple of cards and ID but if you’re looking to carry a little bit more or want quick access to your cards, there are probably more suitable alternatives.
However, if you do like to travel light and only want to carry a few bills, ID and a credit card or two then this slimline money clip card holder is worth a look.
Pros: Lightweight, slim, ID window makes it easy to show identification without taking it out
Cons: Limited capacity, money clip doesn’t work too well unless you have 5 or more bills in it, clip quite tight
Leather Money Clip & Credit Card Holder
Made out of harness cowhide leather, this money clip card holder is thin but with a generous storage capacity.
There are two credit card slots on the front, money clip on the back and a pocket in the center for other items or extra cards.
Last time we looked, this item was on offer at Amazon.com and available for less than $25 – perfect if you’re looking for something that won’t break the bank!
Pros: Lightweight, slim, good capacity
Cons: Leather not the highest quality
Tumi Monaco Money Clip Card Case
From Tumi, the renowned manufacturer of suitcases and bags for travel – is this slim leather money clip card case.
The streamlined design is part of the Monaco collection and crafted out of high quality textured full-grain leather.
It includes 3 card slots, a center pocket and money clip on the back. If you’re looking for something slim that’s going to stand the test of time, the Tumi Monaco is worth serious consideration.
Pros: High quality, textured leather, one card slot in one direction – two facing the other way, tight clip to keep currency secure
Cons: Card slots a little tight at first, slightly higher price than the others we looked at
Money clip card holders are perfect for carrying essential items and bills. They are thinner than most standard wallets. While they’re larger than most money clips, they offer superior organization and quicker access to your items.
