T-Mobile has just offered another reason to have the new Apple Card. The wireless carrier says it will provide up to 3 percent cash back on in-store purchases when customers pay with Apple’s new credit card.
As an added bonus, T-Mobile says it will also give back 3 percent for one-time bill payments if made in T-Mobile stores and paid with the Apple Card with Apple Pay.
“T-Mobile’s iPhone offer just got better,” the carrier said in a blog post. “On top of 50 percent off the latest iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max with eligible trade-in, customers can also receive 3 percent Daily Cash for all purchases, including the new iPhone, the new Apple Watch Series 5 and the new seventh-generation iPad, when they use Apple Card with Apple Pay in T-Mobile stores.”
Apple rolled out its new credit card last month. Like many regular credit cards, it doesn’t have an annual fee and it offers 3 percent cash back on Apple purchases and 1 percent on all other purchases.
The card got a rather lukewarm reception from personal finance experts who note that most cards now don’t charge an annual fee and offer rewards as generous or more than what the Apple Card pays. Deals with vendors like T-Mobile, however, may change that narrative.
‘All about giving value’
“We’re all about giving customers the best value in wireless, and we’re doing it again by offering 3 percent Daily Cash on Apple Card,” said John Legere, CEO of T-Mobile. “More options. More value. And cash back, including on Apple’s newest products. It’s just the Un-carrier way.”
Starting today, any customer will receive 3 percent Daily Cash for all purchases at T-Mobile, including the new iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max, the new Apple Watch Series 5 and the new seventh-generation iPad, as well as one-time bill payments when they use Apple Card with Apple Pay in T-Mobile stores.
T-Mobile’s iPhone customers can apply for the Apple Card through the Wallet app on iPhone and start using it right away with Apple Pay in stores, in apps, and on websites.
