Anabel Pasarow for REFINERY29:
I & # 39; I've been using my very own Apple card since last week, and although I don't have my physical card yet, I'm very impressed with the digital card (which is more advantageous to use than the physical card, anyway – more on this later ). Ever since I made it my default Apple Pay and Safari auto-fill card, I've used it exclusively (well, except for places that don't take Apple Pay), without having to whip out my wallet. And I'm here to tell you: it's good .
My favorite feature is far from Daily Cash, which sets the Apple Card apart from some of its competitors by making away points entirely. . Instead of complicated incentives or bonuses, there are three simple rewards levels with Apple cards: You get 3% daily cash on all Apple purchases, 2% daily cash on every Apple Pay transaction and 1% every time you use the physical card … You get Daily Cash every day and you can use it at any time.
It is something very satisfying to be able to see the cash amount so clearly (which, by the way, I can transfer to my external bank account, send via iMessage, or use to pay down your credit card bill at any time). I can also split my transactions into expense categories or view them by the seller – making it very easy to see spending patterns. In addition, no more confusion surrounding the mystery provider on the credit card bill.
MacDailyNews Take: Apple and Goldman Sachs have a big winner on their hands here. Anecdotally, and via our own poll from a few weeks back, it looks like many really want to get their own Apple card!
The Apple Card application experience is the best in the payment industry. Apple wants about 67% of iPhone owners who use an Apple Card with Apple Card standard as a wallet. The skeuomorphic card has a labeling heat map that changes color when used in different categories. https://t.co/XdpXMhWNM8 pic.twitter.com/X10tbxKqaW

Using Apple Pay for NYC-t- the path is one of those "wow" moments.
