You might think I'm crazy, or kiddding but I actually did that the other night. I used an extra film I had for my iPhone(from Best Skins Ever). I test swiped it a few times at work(machine is off) and it left marks on the film, but not as bad as if the card is naked.

 

My gf thinks I'm crazy. But for me it marked a big achievement in my credit journey.I had $2250 total in credit this past Feb. Now I have $21,400. Now my GF think's I'm going to frame the extra CSP I have laying around.(I have 4 of them somehow)

:smileysurprised: I will be doing the same or similar when I get my BCE. I also notice, when I swipe if you do it gentle, slow and shift weight on the magnetic side, it should help lol.

Re: American Express BCE approved!!

Congrats.  Have fun waiting for the card to arrive.  I was approved on Nov 22nd and guess what...STILL NO CARD LOL.  It should be coming today though, they overnighted a replacement one to me.
