I've reused them in a pinch, without any issues, if it looked in good shape. I believe Advance carries them in the Help section. Even has a little screen on it for the passage. I think Boosty was the first to find it.

We'd tell anyone else on the club to get a fresh one automatically.

I've evaluated and reused before though.
