I’ve been using my Apple Card for a little over a week now and I’m really enjoying the experience. The sign up process was quick and painless.
What do I like most about the card? Something I never thought about much before, but getting real time alerts every time I make a purchase. I know some credit card apps offer this feature, but Apple goes one step further is having a map for the location. This makes it very clear where and when I made the purchase. I was driving 200 miles this past week and made some purchases along the way. Even though I don’t recognize all the merchant names, I do recognize the map locations on the way to my destination. Just the other day I had a line on another credit card that I didn’t recognize. I had to call the number to find out that it was in fact something I bought. I won’t have this problem anymore with the way Apple does it.
I also love the daily cash back. My prior card were all point based and it was always a bit of a mystery as to how much they are worth. I also hate that they forced my to sign up once a month to get points on certain merchants that Chase was pushing. What Apple does is very straightforward, clear and transparent.
I got the physical card in the mail 2 days ago and have been using it in places that don’t accept Apple Pay.
I plan on using this as my main credit card now.
