Apple and Goldman Sachs have made a small -but-rewarding change to the Apple Card. Ace Hardware has been added as a 3% cash back category with the popular rewards credit card, providing savings at home improvement stores as the weather warms and summer projects can begin.
Apple Card Adds Ace Hardware As a 3% Back Brand
The Apple Card is a versatile cash back rewards card from Goldman Sachs and tech juggernaut Apple. Setting out to be a “different type of credit card,” the Apple Card eliminates hidden fees and offers streamlined rewards that work with Apple, Apple Pay, and its associated products.
The Apple Card provides unlimited 2% cash back on Apple Pay purchases, placing its unlimited rate on par with the Citi® Double Cash Card. However, unlike Double Cash, Apple Card also offers 3% cash back on select brands.
The 3% cash back category with the Apple Card just got busier, thanks to the addition of Ace Hardware as a bonus brand. Ace Hardware joins the following brands, which also earn 3% back on purchases with the Apple Card:
- Apple stores (including Apple.com), Apple subscription services, iTunes, the App Store, and in-app purchases
- Panera Bread
- Exon Mobile
Apple Card Previously Added Integration with Intuit Mint
The addition of Ace Hardware as a cash back brand is just the latest addition to the Apple Card. Earlier this year, the card re-introduced integration with the Mint budgeting app.
Mint is a financial service that brings together various financial information, including account balances, spending, budgets, and even users’ credit scores. Owned by Intuit – the maker of TurboTax, QuickBooks, and Credit Karma – Mint provides a clear picture of the user’s financial health. It shows spending habits, investments, free credit scores, and more.
