How to Apply for the Apple Rewards Credit Card

The Apple Rewards Credit Card, offered through Barclaycard, is theoretically a good option for anyone who frequently shops at Apple. However, in comparison to other brand cards, especially those powered by Barclaycard, the interest rates are much higher and the rewards lower. The points earned with the card provide savings solely on Apple products and come in the form of Apple and iTunes gift cards. The more you shop with Apple the better, as 3 points will be awarded for every $1 spent, though you can still earn points on your non-Apple purchases since 2 points will be received for every $1 spent at restaurants and 1 point for every $1 spent elsewhere. To give you an idea of what these points are actually worth when redeemed, you will need a grand total of 2,500 points just to earn a $25 gift card. If you plan on making a significant amount of purchases on Apple products over the next few years, this card may just come in handy. If not, we recommend looking elsewhere.
