Apple Card Just Got an Official Twitter Account

by

Apple has just launched an account on Twitter dedicated to its new credit card, which went live for customers in the U.S on Tuesday.

The official account, which goes by the handle @AppleCard, has so far only posted one tweet that links to the company's Apple Card webpage.

It's not yet clear what purpose the account will serve beyond promoting the card and future offers on social media, but Apple is advising customers seeking support-related Apple Card questions to contact @AppleSupport.

Apple yesterday announced that customers will 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.

Apple offers a cash back rewards system for the ‌Apple Card‌, providing Daily Cash up to 3 percent. You get 1 percent cash back for all of your purchases. On purchases made with ‌Apple Pay‌, you get 2 percent cash back, and for purchases made from the Apple Store (physical or online) you'll get three percent back. This also includes purchases made from the App Store, iTunes Store, and Apple services.

To get an ‌Apple Card‌, you need to be 18 years or older and be a U.S. citizen or a lawful U.S. resident with a U.S. residential address (no P.O. Box). An iPhone running iOS 12.4 or later is required to use the ‌Apple Card‌, and it will not be available if you do not have an ‌iPhone‌. Two-factor authentication must be turned on, and you must be signed in to iCloud on your ‌iPhone‌ with your Apple ID.

Check out our dedicated Apple Card guide for the full lowdown on Apple's new credit card.

I still don't understand the appeal... Credit cards are not as popular as debit cards, cash-back and rewards are average, statements with locations and categories have been offered by my bank for years. Only available in America. Can somebody fill me in?

A few thoughts:

* High security
* Ease of setup (for most)
* Integrates seamlessly with iPhone, Apple Pay and Apple Cash
* Simple and graphical interface in the Wallet App
* Modest but acceptable rewards program that is expanding
* Daily cash back to Apple Cash
* Unique physical card

Clearly it isn't for everyone, especially those who:

* Shop around seeking cards with maximum rewards for their lifestyle (cash back, airline points, hotel points)
* Think credit is the devil himself and can't possibly ever be used responsibly
* Already happy with their card(s)
* Don't want to be tied to the Apple ecosystem
* Are appalled and offended with the credit limit or interest rate they get when applying

I had 3 cards already ranging from $16,000 - $20,000

* AMEX for Delta Skymiles
* Marriott Visa for Hotel Points
* Credit Union Visa for monthly bill consolidation and autopay
* All kept at Zero balance and paid every month

I got the Apple Card at:

* $20,000
* 12.99%

Will use it for normal daily expenditures and pay it off as well, instead of using my Debit Card

* Did I need it? No
* Will I use it? Sometimes
* Does it really make a difference to me? Not really
* Why didn't I shop around and get a much better card? Too much trouble to research and apply for me, this was easy, besides I didn't really need another card and wasn't looking

I understand those who don't find it compelling and must have
What I don't understand is the negative thrashing that some give it (not you OP)
Like everything else in life, just because it isn't for you doesn't mean it isn't for someone else

Honestly why do you and others care so much? If someone wants anything in this world they don’t have to justify it to anyone.

Literally anything Apple does draws interest. Why? Well I shouldn’t have to spell it out for you. If you can’t fathom why someone would have interest in this card then idk whattttt to tell you lmao.

Some of you make this Apple Card thing out to be such a strange/foreign concept. It’s wild.

Its killer app is its killer app.

Seriously, on day one it is a far more seamless mobile payment and management experience than I've ever had with any other card/bank. I do not care about points/rewards, benefits, or interest rates. I care about ease of use, security, and having no fees. Apple Card is a big time winner on those fronts.

Why get an Apple Card when there are better cards with more rewards?

* Why get an iPhone when there are other phones that do the same thing for less?
* Why get a Mac when Windows does the same thing or even better Linux which is free?
* Why get an Apple Watch when you can just get a FitBit?
* Why get an iPad when a laptop does so much more?
* Why get a Camry when a Corolla is cheaper?

And all the arguments about credit being bad apply pretty much equally to all cards, not just the Apple Card
