Card clash blocker £5 @ M&S Free C&C

Found 9th Apr 2016
This item is not on sale but essential if you are using your Oyster card and also have your credit/debit card with you, most times you will be charged twice even if you keep the 2 cards separate. And trying to get your money back from London Underground?, you have a better chance having a cup of tea on Neptune than getting your money back. Great reviews but only 3 reviews left.

Never worry about card clash again with this card clash protection kit. It includes a set of two cards to make contactless payment even easier.

yikes.. M&S should be handing out for free then
to be fair though, that news item from BBC was the best part of 3 years ago when nfc payments were in their infancy.

Yeah only one card can be scanned now for each transaction, it can still scan the wrong card tho I guess
Creating solutions to problems that only exist due to adoption of technology that's meant to improve our lives... welcome to the 21st century
am I wrong in thinking these are just sleeves for the cards to sit in thereby preventing their use when in one? this would obviously mean you would have to take the card out your Wallet or purse to use the card you want but if you do that without these blockers then you wouldn't have an issue anyway since you would only be holding one card to the contactless payment terminal? or am I missing something?

also if you would rather not spend £5 which is not a lot for the nice enough wallets tbh just grab some tinfoil and line the card slot of your purse or wallet and presto its now blocked
good find op, heat added
Tin foil works pretty well...
these should be free to from the supplier of cards that carry this risk but like that would ever happen
The hot deal imo would be use cash, save 5 quid?
RE: Oyster cards, no point using them now, I have one of these, I get the same caps as the Oyster cards and don't have to top it up.

You can buy 5 sleeves for less than £2 from ebay if you really want it. The M&S branding doesn't make it any more effective.

Indeed it does

Don't forget to mention these cost £39.99! Not a bargain.
I have the ones off eBay which work great and are so much cheaper. Everyone should put their contactless cards in them to avoid anyone fraudulently obtaining their information.

RE: Oyster cards, no point using them now


I no longer use an Oyster card eitehr, but isn't the down side that the only information you get is the amount charged on your bank statement, rather than the comprehensive journey history you get with an Oyster card?
"And trying to get your money back from London Underground?, you have a better chance having a cup of tea on Neptune than getting your money back."

I know that's meant to be humorous but it's actually pretty easy to get refunds from them over the phone.
Yeah, I saw the video of the guy on the train with a NFC reader skimming cards... You can get wallets that prevent it - my coat has an anti-RF pocket (coincidently I believe it was purchased from M&S!)
complete non deal. you can buy these on eBay for £0.99 each or £2.69 for 3. here is the link ebay.co.uk/itm…d=1

Nowhere near £39.99, I got mine for £9.99 on a lightning deal (Key fob)

If you have a Barclaycard, you can get a phone sticker (PayTag) for free

I meant what you get by using a (free) contactless card.
£5 seems a bit pricey for 2 metal strips.

You can get that information for ANY contactless card.

Is it possible to somehow save the card details in your phone and use the NFC of your phone to pay?

£5 to prevent a non issue. The risk with contactless is that you scan your wallet on tfl, first scan reads one card, exit reads a different one. But if you remove card from wallet to scan this can't happen.
Skimming cards isn't a real risk. The info available is only the data that appears on the card - so without extra info is completely pointless.
If an unauthorised payment is made by contact less your bank refund. The time and call cost to claim this will be less than £5 and is so remote it doesn't really factor in
M and S are jumping on this because with a older customer base they realise they can make some money from people's reaction to new technology.

It is possible.... Apple Pay is exactly that and I believe Android Pay is coming soon.
Not true about getting the money back as have had this a couple of times and they wrote to me saying I would receive a refund for the the error
You don't need to try to get TFL to refund it. If it's a contactless payment just call the bank to charge it back. They can't argue

Plus, your typical M&S customer is also an iPhone user and thus more highly suggestible than your average consumer
