I originally got this card to pay for a new MacBook Pro (0% interest over 18 months). I paid off the Macbook in the 18 months and only have used the card a few times since to keep it active.
As silly as it sounds, I'm almost afraid to use the card even knowing I can pay it off at the end of the month because of the statrospheric APR (like 29%). Plus the rewards are lousy.
I used to get e-mails occasionally from Barclays saying "from 6/1-7/31 use your Apple card and receive a %0 APR for whatver months", so I kept the card, thinking I would eventually get a new iPad/iPhone/whatever.
I haven't gotten one of these promo e-mails in about a year.
Does anyone else have this card? Have you gotten promo e-mails lately? Wondering if the new Sachs card is going to put the kabosh on the APR deals. If so I might has well cancel.
Call them and ask if they have any offers for you.
I'm only hanging on to mine so I can transfer the limit to my Uber card... whenever I'm able to get it.
Otherwise I don't see much use for it. Like you, I used it to get 0% financing on Macbooks for my wife and me, so it's served its purpose.
I'll keep it (as SACT51 suggests) until time comes to drop some major money with Apple. I'll call about a promo deal before and see what they say. Otherwise I'll probably apply for another Barclays card and just move the CL over.
I could make use of either their AA or Uber card.
I also got the card to finance my Macbook Pro for 18m 0% about 2 years ago - paid off in a year.
I was looking at Apple Watches for Xmas and on the Apple.com site just yeasterday - it listed 2 Apple Card payment types -
1) New Apple Card and get 3% cash back
2) Barclays Apple Card for 0%
If you want 0% on an Apple purchase - it was always available on the Barclay's card everytime I have looked. Not as knowledgeable on the new Apple Card as far as when 0% promos are available . . . . .
Well for those of you with this card, check your e-mail. Up to 24 months 0% deferred (not 0% interest per se) interest starting 11/20. Might get the new 16 inch MBP. I don't know if I was targeted or is it everyone.
