Serious Apple computer users now have a credit card that rewards them with 3 points for every $1 spent on the web with store.apple.com, an Apple Retail Store, via phone at 1-800-MY-APPLE or the iTunes Store.
Besides Apple purchases, cardholders receive 2 points at restaurants, and 1 point on all other merchandise bought with the Barclaycard VISA with Apple Rewards, which they receive in the form of an Apple or iTunes gift card.
Owning an Apple product or getting your favorite iTunes was never more affordable.
Upon approval of the Barclaycard VISA with Apple Rewards, cardholders also receive a generous 0% financing promotion on purchases made at Apple within the first 30 days of account opening to make owning an Apple product easier on the budget.
The length of the zero interest offer depends on purchase amount:
- 6 months: under $498
- 12 months: $499 – $998
- 18 months: $999 and over
As a note, this 0% financing offer does not apply to iTunes purchases as they are not deemed to be qualifying Apple purchases under this offer and it is available only to new applicants.
Caution: If this credit card account is inactive for 6 billing cycles in a row, i.e. no balance, no payments and no transactions, it may be terminated and you will lose all your Apple rewards!
As a convenience there is no need to manually redeem the Apple points, because when the cardholder accumulates 2,500 points, he or she will automatically receive either a $25 Apple gift card or a $25 iTunes® gift card following the next month’s billing statement.
Read the terms and conditions of the Apple Gift Card to avoid any hassles with it, such as it may not be redeemed at the iTunes Store, at any Apple resellers, etc.
Note that the account will initially be set up to receive Apple gift cards as the default.
Cardholders have the option of changing the default Apple gift card to a $25 iTunes gift card by contacting the customer service phone number on the back of their card or by visiting BarclaycardUS.com and selecting the View rewards tab.
