Credit Card Center Advertiser Disclosure†

I had to run some errands this afternoon, so I'll call tomorrow and see if I can get a CLI. I'll post the results tomorrow.
I know this may be a silly question, but can the Apple card only be used for Apple products, or anywhere since it's a visa? It's a little confusing to me because there are no benefits related to Apple. So, if it can be used anywhere, I wonder why they call it an Apple card.
I also find it strange that this card has no mention of Apple on it like the other Barclay Cards do (example LL Bean)
It's a visa and can be used anywhere visa is accepted.

Thank you! I'm so excited to have this card. Got my email tonight welcoming me. Yay!

Once you start getting prime cards, the urge to app will eat you alive
Truer words have never been spoken! I have to fight the urge to app daily.
Congrats to all those who got in with Barclays! I have their NFL card with a low limit, but this was after calling for a recon twice after being denied, so I decided not to complain about the limit and just enjoy my card. They said to call back in a few months and they'll try and get it raised! They have by far the friendliest reps I've ever talked to; they're real and personable...not reading from a script or computer prompts.

Yay! Big day for MyFico'ers with Barclay's. Looks like Christmas came a little early. And yes, Bichon, I've basically only known denials so it was a bit shocking seeing "Approved!" on my computer screen.
Today was a very good day. One of the best I've had in a long time.
I'm really happy for the both of you!

I'm with John. I decided to pull the trigger on a Barclays Apple card on account of new laptop purchase coming up in about a month and got approved for $1,290. Should I call to recon the CLI? My overall util is < 5% and PIF everything.
