In this video we are looking at the Apple Card and Apple Savings Account to talk about why I think this credit card and savings account combination is good, but not great. Now the Apple credit card is very basic since it earns a flat 2% cash back on everything, however the downside to this is that the actual physical Apple Card itself only earns 1% cash back. You also get 3% back on Apple Card purchases of Apple products with the ability to finance those Apple products at 0% interest for 6 to 24 months, but that comes with a catch that could hurt your credit score which I explain in this video as well.
Recently, Apple and Goldman Sachs also introduced the Apple Savings Account, and this high yield account pays a very nice 4.15% APY as of filming this video. That’s a really good interest rate on your savings, but again there is a catch here as well because you need to be an owner or co-owner of an active Apple Card account to open this Apple Savings Account. So for me, I like other credit cards instead and do not have the Apple Card, so I am unable to open this high yield savings account.
Now one of the main reasons why I don’t have this Apple credit card is because I personally prefer the many other credit cards on the market that earn better cash back or points for travel. I enjoy points for travel more with my credit cards, so for me using the Apple Card would be an opportunity cost because I know that I can get a better return on my spending by using other credit cards. I talk more about a few of these credit cards and what I recommend later on in this video as well.
So overall, the Apple Card and Apple Savings Account combination is good but not great. It’s very simple which a lot of people may like, but for me that simplicity is what ruins it. I know that there’s more out there from other credit cards, but Apple knows that most people prefer simple and easy. So if you’re using Apple Pay a lot to get 2% cash back and you also want a solid high yield savings account that pays 4.15% APY, then this Apple credit card and savings account combination might be worth checking out. But otherwise, look elsewhere for more value!
