The other night I was channel surfing aimlessly as I usually do late at night, trying to skip all the annoying commercials … but one of the hazards of channel surfing is getting sucked into exactly what you’re trying to avoid. Before I knew it, I was suddenly so completely absorbed in an ad that I almost actually bought the product. But it’s for women so I didn’t. But still.
I thought this product was so cool that I made note of the website and showed it to my wife in the morning. She agreed that it looked awesome. So what is it exactly?
It’s a touch screen purse. The ad on TV was for a product that’s backed by Lori Greiner from Shark Tank and it’s a small, crossbody bag that has a clear ‘smart touch’ window that allows you to use your phone without removing it from the bag. It’s a cool concept under normal circumstances – it seems like an easy and convenient way for women to use their phones but during COVID-19, when we’re trying to reduce our contact with high-touch surfaces, it’s great to be able to talk and text without constantly handling your phone. (According to Time, our phones are 10 times dirtier than a toilet seat.)
I like this bag for my wife, my sisters and my mother-in-law because crossbody bags are safer when you travel and it’s big enough to hold not just your phone but some cash, credit cards and passport. It’s also has an RFID blocker to keep your information safe. But of course, the best part is the ‘smart touch’ window so that you can use your phone without ever taking it out. You’re less likely to lose your phone this way, too.
The product from the TV ad is sold at GetTouchscreenPurse.com and sells for $19.99 plus $6.99 for postage and handling and if you buy two, you get one free but still have to pay for postage and handling.
It’s also on Amazon for $19.99 and if you’re a Prime member, there’s no postage and handling fee. You can check it out here
There are other touch screen purse options on Amazon, which you can take a look at here:
BORIVILLA Crossbody Cellphone Purse with Touch Screen and RFID Blocking – this is the one my wife likes the best.
So, if you’re looking for a great gift idea for the woman on your shopping list or for something for yourself, I think a touch screen purse is a smart and handy thing to have. For myself, I guess I’ll just stick with my Scottevest jacket, which gives me tons of secret pockets to keep my stuff safe and secure.
