What on earth are you doing with them. My cards last out their life and are used several times a week. Ice scrapers are very cheap if this is what is causing their demise, and just how often do you need to scrape ice? Keeping them loose in your pocket is another cause of premature wearing out. The only time I have had to get a replacement is when a shopkeeper was bending my 'Flexible Friend' while answering his phone and snapped it in half!
