A select number of Apple Card users are getting a promotional offer that allows them to get 5% in Daily Cash at grocery stores and grocery-related purchases.
Apple did send out emails to users who were selected for this promo. It does not seem as though it is available to all users, but just to the select few who got the email.
Selected Apple Card users will get 5$ in Daily Cash on purchases made at grocery stores and use their Apple Card as their payment method. Typically these promos are only allowed for those who pay from their iPhone or Apple Watch, but this one is additionally including the physical titanium card (or typing in the card number manually online).
Another select number of users have reported getting up to 10% in Daily Cash on grocery store purchases, according to 9to5Mac too.
Applicable purchases include ones made at traditional grocery stores, Instacart orders, Whole Foods purchases made through Amazon, and warehouse clubs.
Purchases that are not included are transactions made through Costco stores, Walmart (online), Target (online), convenience stores, specialty food markets, grocery delivery services outside of Instacart, and meal kit delivery businesses.
This promotion could be a big deal since Kroger and a handful of Kroger-owned grocery stores started accepting Apple Pay in the past year.
However, when it comes to users that pay with Apple Pay from their iPhone or Apple Watch, it is applicable to $2,000 worth of related purchases, but for the titanium card, it is only applicable to $1,000 worth of related purchases.
On top of that, with the promotion including the 5% in Daily Cash even for those that use the titanium Apple Card, this could benefit users that shop at the Texas-based grocery store chain H-E-B which currently does not accept Apple Pay in its stores or online.
This promotion is set to end on Wednesday, May 31.
