Sigh. Quiet, troll. Nobody believes you own an LV anything.

From the Bank Of Canada :
All notes, paper or polymer, fare better when they are kept flat, not folded.



Doesn`t say you cant .

You can fold paper money and place it in your pocket without a problem. The same can't be said for polymer money, which is designed specifically to resist attempts at folding. The use of polymer is intended to increase the life of a bill, but without being able to fold it at all, those who use folding wallets or prefer to carry bills in their pocket will have a difficult time making do. When a polymer banknote is folded, the action creates a crease in the middle of the bill. While paper notes fold back without much problem, the crease in the polymer bill remains there permanently.

Australia has been using polymer bills for many years. I've never had a problem putting them in my folding wallet. I find it hard to believe that the Canadian bills will have a problem either.

Solution - use a debit/credit card.

When I was in Singapore, I had some Australian bills. To my recollection, they felt similar to, and work the same as, paper money.
No, I do NOT have any Z10's or Z30's left for sale. Stop PM'ing me!

Those types of wallets weren't meant to hold bills ( perhaps a couple, but not several), just the essentials; i.e: debit card, credit card, driver's license and perhaps a Costco card :D , lol.

On another note (according to the posted photo) It's Sat March 26, 2011 on your 7290? hmmm...

Anyway, most folding wallets don't fold bills, they just bend them so it will be no problem. I imagine actually folding bills to get a knife edge crease would be problematic, though.
