Apple Card Users To Get 3 Pct Cash Back At Walgreens

Apple Pay

Customers using the Apple Card with Apple Pay to purchase goods and prescriptions at Walgreens will get 3 percent cash back, Walgreens said in a press release on Thursday (Sept. 12).

Starting Friday, Sept. 13, Apple Card's rewards program, called Daily Cash, will be available at Walgreens and Duane Reade stores, websites and apps. Daily Cash gives back a percentage of every purchase as cash on customers’ Apple Cash card each day. 

Typically, Apple Card offers 1 percent Daily Cash on purchases made with the physical card, 2 percent on purchases made with the card via Apple Pay and 3 percent on purchases made directly from Apple with the card via Apple Pay.

“We know our customers love Apple Pay and they’re looking for convenient ways to shop and pay for their purchases at Walgreens. We’re pleased to offer a higher level of Daily Cash on Apple Card for even better value on daily essentials, medicines and prescriptions,” Walgreens Chief Merchandising Officer Joe Hartsig said in the announcement.

Walgreens is also increasing the number of stores carrying Apple accessories to 2,600 stores chainwide.

The Apple Card was announced in March and released in August as a physical card that is also stored digitally in the Apple Wallet. It can keep users informed of transactions and minimum payments due while helping them track spending habits. The physical, titanium card was launched in partnership with Goldman Sachs and Mastercard, which will be responsible for payments processing.

Users can sign up and get approved for the card through their iPhone and can begin using the card immediately. There are no late fees, international fees or penalty interest rates. There are also no credit card numbers, required signatures or CVV codes, as that information is already stored in the Wallet app.
