Apple Card Launches Publicly in the US, Now Offers 3% Cashback for Uber

Posted on August 20, 2019 by Mehedi Hassan in Apple with 2 Comments

Apple first announced its credit card, the Apple Card, back in March. And after the recent preview rollout of the Apple Card, the company is launching the Apple Card for everyone in the United States.

Apple has been testing the new Apple Card with a small number of iPhone users in the United States over the last few weeks, and it’s launching the card publicly today, meaning anyone running the latest version of iOS will be able to sign-up for an Apple Card. “Customers have told us they love Apple Card’s simplicity and how it gives them a better view of their spending.” said Jennifer Bailey, Apple’s vice president of Apple Pay.

Apple has worked with Goldman Sachs on the new card, so whether you get accepted depends on your credit score, though you probably won’t have to worry too much about that.

With the public launch of the Apple Card, the company is also expanding its rewards program Daily Cash. Daily Cash, for those unfamiliar, gives you instant cashback on your purchases every day. You get a 3% Daily Cash on all purchases on Apple services, and 2% every time you use the Apple Card with Apple Pay. And now, you will get 3% every time you use Apple Card with Apple Pay for Uber or Uber Eats, which is pretty nice. Apple says the company will continue to add more merchants and apps in the coming months.

So yes, if you have an iPhone 6 or later with iOS 12.4, you can now sign-up for an Apple Card via the Wallet.

    It was not intuitive how to find the application in the Wallet, but after your Aug. 9th article saying that people with 620 FICO scores were accepted (albeit under the max interest rate of 23.99%), I decided I should go for it. I have an Experian Bankcard FICO Score 9 of 623 and a Transunion FICO Score 8 of 629. Uh, BOOM, declined! So much for the infamous source "according to reports."
