Earn daily cash
The Apple Card offers cashback payments on every purchase you make on the card. The cashback ranges from 1-3% of the transaction value, depending on the merchant or retailer.
Once your savings account is opened, all future cashbacks you earn will be sent directly to your Apple Card savings account, so you can earn interest on these amounts too.
Customers can transfer money from their Apple Card balance into the savings account, or transfer it from an external bank account. You can have a maximum of $250,000 in your account.
If you want to use some of your savings balance you can transfer the money to an external bank account directly from the dashboard, or you can transfer it to your Apple Cash card.
