Oystercard Wallet Designs

Tired of your blue wallet?

If you want a new look Oystercard wallet or even a new look Oystercard, pop along to
Bad Oyster

Badoyster was recently launched by Ben & Tim who said "After decades of putting up with the diabolical underground service and the heavy handed tactics employed in the switch-over to the new Oyster system enough was enough. We'd succumb to the pressure and buy Oyster cards... but only if we got to re-brand them to show what we thought of the 'service' we were being forced to pay an extortionate amount of money for."

Currently you can choose from Sardines, or a Roulette design - "Every day on the tube is like a game of roulette. What excuse will it be today? The excitement never ends!". But hopefully they'll create more designs in the future.

Thanks to Cath for initally giving me the heads up on this.

Also if you feel like doing your bit for charity and want a designer wallet, on Sunday Oxfam launched some exclusive designs for the wallet that have "have totally transformed the ubiquitous travel cardholder, which has become an iconic symbol for modern city dwellers."

Oxfam Oystercard Wallets

You can buy them for £4.99 from Oxfam's Notting Hill and Westbourne Grove stores in London or get them from Oxfam's eBay store for a limited period. Alternatively, you can get one for free if you sign up to the I'm In campaign through Oxfam's street teams, who will be on the streets of London from Monday March 26.
