Barclaycard with Apple Financing

Barclaycard with Apple financing

The Apple Rewards Barclaycard has been phased out and replaced by the Barclaycard Financing Visa.

Upon approval new cardholders receive special financing on purchases within 30 days of account opening depending on amount charged.

  • Less than $499, interest is deferred for 6 months (up to between $81 and $145)
  • From $499 to $999, interest is deferred for 12 months (up to between $162 and $290)
  • Over $999, interest is deferred for 18 months (over $162 to $290 depending on APR)

Deferred interest you owe interest on the merchandise from the date of purchase if the balance is not paid in full when the promotional period ends.

The special financing applies only to products bought at Apple Store Location, online at apple.com, or via phone through -1-800-MY-APPLE posting within 30 days of account opening.

This card doesn’t garner any rewards on purchases whether at 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.

When time is valuable

Made of made of solid palladium with 23K gold etching, the physical card is worth more than the $595 annual fee.

The usual benchmark features of the credit card industry don’t fully justify the card’s value, because of all the other benefits private wealth advisors bring to the table for their clients.

For the record some of the features are:

  • Smart chip and signature technology to make international travel convenient
  • No nuisance fees such as foreign transaction, cash advance, late or over-limit charges
  • Primary auto rental coverage
  • Emergency evacuation or repatriation
  • Trip delay or cancellation insurance
  • Baggage delay or lost luggage coverage
  • Emergency accident or sickness coverage
  • Price and return protection
  • Exclusive airport lounges and services

As for spending limits: there aren’t any to be concerned about since purchases usually are beyond the norm.

The $595 card fee is partially covered by the $300 in statement credits given annually as reimbursement for travel purchases made on the card.
