CLEVELAND, Ohio — Early adopters of Apple’s first credit card are starting to receive their fancy titanium cards in the mail.
Just don’t expect to use the physical card, which comes in a futuristic envelope and with your name laser-etched on it, a whole lot. Apple doesn’t really want you to.
If it did, it wouldn’t give you a measly 1% cash back on purchases made with the physical card as it oppose to the 2% rewards on mobile Apple Pay transactions. It certainly wouldn’t have sent you a card that comes with all kinds of crazy instructions on how to care for it.
– Clean it with a soft, lint-free microfiber cloth and some isopropyl alcohol
– Don’t use household cleaners, compressed air, aerosol sprays, solvents, ammonia, or abrasives to clean the card
– Make sure it’s not touching another credit card in your wallet
– Don’t place the card near magnets, loose change, keys or “other potentially abrasive objects.”
– To avoid permanent discoloration of the card, keep it away from leather and denim
– Do not feed it after midnight
OK, I made one of those up. Still, this thing is more pretentious than that jerk you went to college with who constantly mentions he drives a Porsche now.
So, what exactly is an Apple Card holder supposed to do? Let’s check with the internet for some thoughts!
Maybe just use cash next time.
