As far as credit card cash back deals are concerned, Apple’s offering is par for the course for the most part. But, to help stand out a little bit, Apple is boosting the cash back offerings for select retailers through some of the summer months. But the deal will only last for so long.
Starting now, Apple Card customers can get up to 4% cash back at select retailers. That’s up from the traditional 2% that the credit card offers when using Apple Pay. And, as you can guess, you’ll still need to use Apple Pay to finalize a purchase to get the boosted cash back deal.
Here are the businesses that are supported with this limited time promotion:
Apple says, via the official promotions page, that the deal is present until July 31, 2022. Here is the fine print, though, because there is always fine print:
- Offer valid on qualifying purchases directly at participating merchants (stubhub.com, jcrew.com, yeti.com, crocs.com, petco.com, ray-ban.com, hoteltonight.com, fandango.com) up to a cumulative maximum spend total of $3000 per person when using Apple Card with Apple Pay online or in app (where available) from June 28, 2022, to July 31, 2022. Excludes purchase of gift cards at StubHub, J.Crew, Fandango, Crocs, and Petco. Product shipments from Yeti are limited to the 50 U.S. states and D.C. New Apple Card accounts subject to credit approval. An Apple Cash card is required to use Daily Cash, except if you do not have an Apple Cash card, in which case you can only apply your Daily Cash as a credit on your statement balance. The Apple Cash card is issued by Green Dot Bank, Member FDIC. See apple.com/apple-pay for more information. Daily Cash is earned on purchases after the transaction posts to your account. Actual posting times vary by merchant. Daily Cash is subject to exclusions, and additional details apply. See the Apple Card Customer Agreement for more details.
A pretty good deal, albeit a brief one, for Apple Card customers. Apple isn’t offering a double cash back deal for its own products, though, so don’t expect to get 6% back when buying an Apple device with the Apple Card via Apple Pay. At least, not right now.
