All stamps will get damaged over time if not treated properly. Rubber will harden and even crack with exposure to light especially the sun. Clear stamps will yellow from exposure to sun and from use with some types of ink. Even the very best brands like PTI. Some cheap stamps age all squishy and some harden, others rip even if you treat them well. Cheap stamps will only work well with pigment ink and sometimes not even then. Not worth it unless you have a very unique image you can't get any other way. I've learned after buying thousands of stamps over 8 years that very little is so unique it is worth the headache of dealing with a cheap stamp!
