What is a Magnetic Stripe Card?

A magnetic stripe card is a type of card capable of storing data by modifying the magnetism of tiny iron-based magnetic particles on a band of magnetic material on the card. The magnetic stripe, sometimes called swipe card or magstripe, is read by physical contact and swiping past a magnetic reading head.1

What Damages a Magnetic Stripe Card?

You can run into problems when a mag stripe card has prolonged or constant exposure to any item that may wear down or scratch the stripe - like another plastic card or cell phone that rubs against your card.

With such wear-and-tear conditions over time, the data on your mag stripe card may no longer be read by a card reader machine, including a hotel card key lock. The best way to prevent this kind of damage is to handle your card with care.
