How to fix your credit card’s broken/cracked magnetic strip

No comments

As a shopaholic, I mainly use my credit card to buy new stuff. It’s one of the must-have items in your life once you reach young adulthood, especially when you want to purchase items online. Be careful of your spending, though, or you’ll end up having huge debt that you can’t easily pay back. In any case, using your card long enough may cause the thin, transparent plastic film protecting it to peel off. The exposure will then cause the magnetic strip to shed as well.
