Apple Card Extending 3% Daily Cash to More Merchants, Starting With Uber and Uber Eats

Timed with the Apple Card launching widely in the United States today, Apple has announced that customers will now receive three percent Daily Cash when they use the Apple Card with Apple Pay for Uber and Uber Eats purchases.


Apple says additional merchants and apps will begin to offer three percent Daily Cash in the coming months.

The three percent reward was initially limited to purchases made directly with Apple, including at Apple Stores, Apple.com, the App Store, the iTunes Store, and for services like Apple Music and iCloud storage subscriptions.

All other purchases made with the ‌Apple Card‌ via ‌Apple Pay‌ will continue to receive two percent Daily Cash, while purchases made with the physical, titanium ‌Apple Card‌ qualify for one percent Daily Cash.

To apply for an ‌Apple Card‌, simply open the Wallet app on an iPhone running iOS 12.4 or later, tap the plus button in the top-right corner, and follow the on-screen steps. The process takes just a few minutes, and if approved, your digital ‌Apple Card‌ will be ready for purchases immediately.

Daily Cash is unlimited and paid out daily to your Apple Cash account. For more details, make sure to check out our Apple Card guide.

I wouldn't give money to Uber if I were having a heart attack and it was the only transportation available to the hospital, but expanding 3% could get very interesting...

Really hope they expand it to some grocery stores. Then 3% cashback would be a sole reason to get this card and a lot of Apple Card haters would rethink their criticism. In the meantime, it’s still just an average credit card. I like it as it’s convenient and I do not care about APR, never missed a payment and no planning to buy more than I can afford to

Next we need to get more merchants to accept Apple Pay.


This depends on where you live but in Toronto, Apple Pay is accepted virtually everywhere. I’ve used ApplePay at large chains but also at an ice cream truck. Canada has had tap payments for a few years now so it’s pretty much everywhere. I’m so confident that ApplePay will be accepted that I have stopped carrying a wallet. My physical cards are in a drawer at home. When I walk my dog I don’t even take my phone. If I want to buy a bottle of water or a snack, I’ll tap my Watch at a food truck. Works every time. Livin’ the dream.

Isn't cash back a scam ?

Paying people to go more into debt.

Why not just have a lower interest rate ?


Cash back is meaningless on any card you don’t pay off completely every month. Period.

I know its fun to bag on Uber but on my last vacation Uber was invaluable - Uber (or a service like it) its indispensable IMO.

And people were complaining of poor rewards. Expanding 3% to more merchants seems to address this.

It is pretty good as is, but great would be 5% back at Apple, and 3% on everything else. If they really wanted to blow people away, that would be the way.

Apple can continually change the reward structure to make this card more appealing over time.

Watch for bonuses, more stores getting higher rewards, etc.

This card is going to be a smash hit.

It would be nice if they got those apoplectic geezers who run Kroger on board.
