"Some fabrics, like leather and denim, might cause permanent discoloration that will not wash off," Apple warns card owners.

[...] The BBC rounded up a number of Tweets from early adopters confirming that the physical card might look nice when you get it, but probably not for long after. "I can say from two months of having the card in my leather wallet, it no longer looks pretty," one owner wrote.

The damage is cosmetic only; the card will still work at a point of sale if you dare to keep it in your wallet. If you would like to keep it looking new, however, Apple recommends wiping it gently with isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol using a soft microfiber cloth.

    You are confusing the item with the delivery charge. The item itself is $799.

    No, you're looking at Cardholder Air that was released last week - I found a refurb at the Apple Stored for $796.

    The latest model is Cardholder XX that was released last night - I have one on preorder for $850 but signed a 2-year contract so I got it for $825.

      The main selling point of the Cardholder XX was that it had expansion slots for more than one card, I thought that it might be useful for holding my ID or Insurance Card but the XX has these little security tabs that prevent the use of non-compliant cards. You can remove the tab, but it voids the warranty. I don't own multiple Apple Cards, so I will probably downgrade back to the Air.
