Otherwise, there is a $20 replacement fee.

Damaged Cards:  Any card that has been bent, broken, hole-punched, sat on, or that shows any noticeable signs of neglect of damage, will be replaced for a $20 fee. Cards that appear to otherwise be in good condition, but are unable to be read by our readers will be replaced for free.
