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

    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.

    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.

    People would buy it, just like how people would buy skins and clear protectors. I definitely won't be surprised if these come to market.

    :( 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:

    Do you have it sitting directly facing other cards in your wallet? Or separated by the dividers?

    It's physically touching the other cards. I'm using a Ridge Wallet.

    Sounds like this card will get a nice patina over the years. It's okay; it's just a credit card. As long as it works when you insert or swipe, big whoop. :)
