Does this card have an expiration date? Would I be able to spread out its usage over 2-3 years?

Keep in mind the wait times and travel distance at Pro Hockey for skate sharpening vs your old timer sharpener at your local ring where you are going to skate or play hockey anyways.

Hours to days vs 15 minutes.

That said, it's a decent deal per sharpening. I pay about $7 at the rink and he takes off any blemishes and fixed any blade issues for free.

If you buy in store when you're having your skates sharpened, they usually give you a free sharpening.

BTW, I've never seen an expiry date on these cards.

Yes they do give you your first sharpening for free. I usually get 5 pairs done (2 for me and one for each of the kids and the wife) when getting the card. That's 15 sharpenings for $30... Essentially $2/pair. Pretty damn good deal.

Hope it's ok that I ask my questions here...
So I don't skate often, maybe a couple times per winter on an outdoor rink. How many hours of casual skating would it take on average before skates need to be sharpened again?

Does anyone know what the regular price to get skates sharpened once (without any card) is at places like pro hockey life, Canadian tire, sportchek, national sports, etc?

I guess I'm wondering if it's just better for me to get individual sharpenings at regular price since I don't skate much. A skate card could potentially last me a lifetime but then I'd have to remember to bring it, not lose the card, and the inconvenience of using only that store.

You definitely don't need a sharpen card, and having well sharpened skates is less of a necessity on outdoor rinks

This place has the worst customer service. Never respond to emails and never answer the phone. Placed an order over a week ago and have received nothing comfirming purchase or shipping besides a statement from PayPal.

Hard to say really. When you feel your edges starting to slip, then it's probably time to sharpen.

I've gone an entire men's league season on one sharpening but when I played competitively it'd be more like every couple of weeks because I'd be on the ice 4-5 times a week.

That's true, I get mine sharpened every yr or 2 even though I play hockey in a outdoor rink with the kid twice a week. I don't need aggressive edges. Whereas my kid gets his skates sharpened every 2-3 wks because he plays competitive hockey.

Does Sportchek honor the sharpening card? We only have 1 store at Tswwassen Mills but several Sportcheks around Vancouver area

Thanks for posting this. I just popped in and grabbed a card... at $3 for a sharpening that’s hard to beat, and this should last me through this season as well as the next.

I wouldn’t trust my skates at sport chek. Especially if you play any type of hockey.
