Title: Multiple suction cup stored-value card for securing an electronic device on a surface

Abstract: A mounting apparatus permits easy and quick attachment and removal of a portable electronic device to smooth surfaces for self-photos or videos, for example. A flat panel/card holds multiple, mini, double-sided suction cup units. One side of each cup unit may be connected to a portable electronic device such as a smart phone, or other lightweight digital media device with a smooth LCD or touch screen. The other side of each cup unit may be connected to a generally vertical surface or other object. The panel/card may be a single-layer plastic card with retention slots into which the double-sided suction cups are inserted. The panel/card may also function as a stored-value card, pre-paid gift card, or credit card incorporating bar codes, scratch-off codes, and magnetic strip features.
