Apple Card Offering Free One-Year WSJ Subscription as Sign-Up Bonus

As a sign-up bonus, customers who open an Apple Card account between December 13 and January 31 via the apple.co/wsj promotional page and subscribe to The Wall Street Journal Digital for one year via subscribe.wsj.com/applecard will receive $55 Daily Cash to offset the full cost of the subscription and sales tax, according to Apple.

Customers must subscribe to The Wall Street Journal Digital within 60 days of the Apple Card account being opened in order to qualify for the $55 Daily Cash, which will be reflected on their Apple Cash balance after the transaction has posted to the account. The subscription plan automatically renews for $38.99 per month after the first year's promotional price until cancelled, so make sure to set a reminder to cancel if necessary.

Launched in 2019, the Apple Card remains available in the U.S. only. Apple's credit card can be managed completely through the Wallet app on the iPhone, with a physical version available for use at stores that do not accept contactless payments. The card has no fees beyond interest and offers up to 3% cashback in the form of Daily Cash.

The WSJ as a bonus is amusing to me. This will lure credit card applicants?

Don't do it. They will ask for your credit card information before signing up for free and they make it nearly impossible to cancel once they have their hooks in you. I had to get my credit card company involved because they refused to cancel my subscription. They are a nightmare to deal with.

Not that I EVER want to read the WSJ, but what about us early adopters?

Why do we early adopters miss out on stuff like this?

They are one of the shady companies that allow you to subscribe on their website, but you must call them to cancel.

It used to be a pain to cancel your WSJ sub as you had to call in to cancel, but it can be done online now. Just log into your account and then go to Manage/Cancel Subscription(s) to cancel.

Before this, I'd have to either lock my card or update the payment method to a virtual card with a $1 balance. After a couple repeated and failed attempts to charge your card, your sub would get cancelled.

WSJ is one of the best, most insightful, and most impactful publications out there. Joanna Stern is one of the top tech columnists in the world. The depth and breadth of information covered is easily worth it.

If you're a new Apple Card member, this should be a no-brainer, even despite that little WSJ opinion disclaimer.
