The Apple Card gives new subscribers a year of The Wall Street Journal for free, but there are some very obvious asterisks about how it does it.
Through targeted emails, Apple has begun notifying customers about this promotion. The campaign states that the new Apple Card will be approved by January 31 and that he will subscribe to The Wall Street Journal digital edition within 60 days of opening the card account. Get $55 in Daily Cash.
At $55 a year for the digital edition of The Wall Street Journal, Apple is effectively offering a one-year subscription service to customers for free. The company also notes that if your card is approved, you must sign up for a Wall Street Journal subscription using the promotional webpage to receive Daily Cash.
Note the fine print on this
There’s a lot to watch out for in the promotional fine print. One is a promotion only for new Apple Card cardholders with an All Access digital subscription to The Wall Street Journal (WSJ).
This offer offers new subscribers a promotional rate of $4/month for the first year, but when that promotion ends, the subscription will automatically renew for $38.99/month or $467.88/year. The $55 Daily Cash will also be released to the Apple Cash card only after his first WSJ Digital subscription transaction is posted to the Apple Card.
Apple Card is a credit card offered by Apple in partnership with Goldman Sachs. We offer Daily Cash, which includes 3% Cash Back on all Apple Pay purchases, 2% Cash Back on all Apple Pay purchases, and 1% Cash Back on all other purchases.
If you’ve been considering the Apple Card and want a year of free access to The Wall Street Journal, now might be a good time to sign up.
