The best credit cards to use at Apple


The Apple Card is just one of many options that can help you earn rewards on your next iPhone or Mac, help fund those expensive items, or both.

Whether you’re the first in line to buy the latest iPhone, comparing Christmas gifts or designing new office decor, choosing the right credit card for your next Apple purchase can make all the difference in your savings.

For loyalists, Apple’s own credit card seems like the obvious choice. But if you don’t take advantage of the card’s interest-free financing benefits, you may be able to find better rewards or perks elsewhere.

Here are the five best credit cards to use at Apple.

Why we love Apple: If you’re buying Apple in bulk now and need to pay it off over time, this card offers one of the longest 0% APR terms on the market.

Other Credit Cards to Consider

Of course, the Apple Store isn’t the only place you can buy Apple products, and sometimes you can get great deals by comparing your shopping at other retailers. Consider these co-branded rewards program cards that complement the sale of Apple products at select retailers:

Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature Card.
Costco Anywhere Visa® Card by Citi.
Sam’s Club® Mastercard®.
Target REDcard™ Credit Card.
Capital One® Walmart Rewards™ Mastercard®.

Please note, however, that rewards offered through these co-branded cards can only be redeemed at affiliated stores.

Or, if you’re a business owner who needs to buy an Apple laptop or device for you or your employees, you can also look for a small business credit card. Some of them offer a long-term 0% APR introductory period, and many of them have “office supply store” as a bonus category, which means it might make sense to buy your Apple product or accessory from Staples or Office Depot.
