Best Credit Cards For Apple Purchases
A list of the best credit cards for purchases with Apple based on your spend, pulled from a database of 250+ cards. Calculate and compare results.
Apple is one of the big four companies in the world next to Facebook, Amazon, and Google. Apple is most known for the iPhone as well as several other items including Macbooks, Airpods, and iPods. Apple purchases can be on the expensive side so you'll want to make sure you're getting the most out of your investment.
The easiest way to earn on Apple purchases is by using one of Apple's two credit cards. The Goldman Sachs Apple Card is the newest card and it offers 3% daily cash on Apple purchases and features several other categories. Daily cash is credited to your Apple Cash account daily, meaning you don't have to wait for your statement to cut to use it. The Barclays Apple Rewards Card also earns a 3% return, but rewards can only be redeemd for iTunes and Apple gift cards. It also offers special financing which can be useful if you don't want to pay the full amount up front. I've used it several times, and recommend it as long as you pay off your balance in full before the financing period ends.
You will not find this card in the list below, but the American Express Platinum Card is a great option for Apple purchases. Not because of the low 1 Membership Rewards Points you earn per $1 spent at Apple, but because of the superb purchase protection the card offers. You'll get 90 days of purchase protection (up to $10,000 per occurrence), up to 1 additional year of warranty, and 90 days of return protection (even if the store refuses to accept your return). The card has a hefty fee, but it loaded with benefits that primary AND authorized users have access to.
Apple is not a store that most people make multiple purchases at per year, so if you're not grabbing either of the three cards listed above, you can benefit with any standard 2% cash back credit card or a card that earns a great return on points that you find valuable such as the AMEX Blue Business Plus.
