We Found These Women’s Wallets to Fit the New P1,000 Bill
by: The Beat Asia
While a lot of us have shifted to mainly using credit cards and e-wallets when the COVID-19 pandemic started, we can’t argue that keeping cash on hand is still handy and important.
The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) has released a new P1,000 polymer banknote in April 2022 that’s said to last longer thanks to its features like waterproofing. But there’s a catch — it should be kept flat and shouldn’t be excessively folded and crumpled. This means you’ll “need a long wallet” that’s about 16 centimeters or longer, as per BSP Governor Felipe Medalla, to fit the bill (pun intended) and keep it secure.
If you’re planning to buy a new fancy wallet anyway, why not get a long one from these brands?
