Yes, you can purchase in-store or online using the Gift Cards first and then your Apple Card for the balance. I believe you can use up to 5 Gift Cards at a time. We used to combine Gift Cards at my old store when the person had more than 5 cards to redeem.
Thanks, I also called Apple customer service and they say I can do it. But people in the store told me I can’t or there not sure. And they told me to ask for a manager. Also that’s a good idea to combine the gift cards, I didn’t know that can be done.
How did you do that? I called the Apple Store just now and they said you can’t do that. You have to finance the whole amount. You can only use gift cards then put the balance on your Apple Card or other gift card but it won’t be zero %.
I keep getting conflicting stories from everyone that works for Apple.
Do you want to buy the Watch online, or in an AppleStore?
If you want to buy it online, just use your gift cards on check-out, and place the remaining on the Debit- or CreditCard (depending on your location) of your choice.
If you want to buy it in an AppleStore, just show up (I would recommend to reserve the model you wish) there, and present them your Giftcards upon Check-Out, and place the remaining on the Card of your choice.
I had done this several times now, and it always worked, as others described here within the thread.
It is a kind of its own problem today, that a lot of people working for an AppleStore only knew a rather small amount of what is really going on within the Appleiversum, and they also have to relay onto ServiceDocumantations, they often only see and read, if it is necessary for a planed meeting at the bar.
So, I wouldn’t care too much about what somebody at an Apple Store is telling you about something, he/she is not doing on a regular base.
I’m going to do it in the store. I want to use my gift cards then finance the rest of it on my Apple care. That’s what I’m trying find out and I keep getting different information from everyone at Apple.
Ah. When I said I’ve done this, I meant I used gift cards and charged the balance like a normal interest rate purchase. I didn’t use Apple’s free installment financing with the balance. If it’s possible to do that, I don’t know how. Sorry for the confusion.
