With many of us using the Apple Card now, I was wondering, with the card being I assume painted white and it being made of Titanium, anyone's card getting scratched up, etc from using in terminals, etc?

With me using this card now to replace my debit card, I use it a ton, and many places still do not take Apple Pay so I have to use the chip or swipe. I am surprised so far the card is not scratching up or anything, but how is everyone elses holding up?

Mine has held up very well after a few swipes and chip-reads. With that said, I've read about one instance where someone dropped the card on pavement and chipped the finish. Another person on Reddit said that sand got in their pocket and caused a long scratch across the card.

It sounds like anything that would blemish the glass on your iPhone will likely blemish the white finish on your card.

I still haven’t received my physical card. Status still says “ordered”, but no shipment yet. I figure I’ll give it a couple more days before contacting them.

I can't wait to see MacRumors doing reviews of Apple Card protectors.

Waiting for BBY to sell Zagg Glass Apple Card protectors.

btw- MR forums still doesn’t support iOS emoji???

When did you get your digital card? They didn't notify me of shipment until it was a day away from reaching me.

My card's white layer is still fine, just impossible to keep clean as expected.

The digital card is applied to your wallet the instant you get approved. Your Physical card should show up a few days later.

I know; obviously I know the digital card is in the Wallet seeing as that's where you request the physical card from. What I meant was on what day they got approved.

Next we'll see an Apple sleeve to protect it

:( I already got a slight scratch on the magnetic strip part. Not sure how it got there. I hadn't even used it yet. Must have happened in the wallet sandwiched to the other cards. :mad:
