Apple Card holders get Daily Cash back as compensation for iPhone 13 pre-order glitch

Several Apple Card holders were unable to successfully order the new iPhone 13 model on the day the flagship iPhone series was available for pre-order, September 24, 2021. Now, to make things right, Apple is giving Daily Cash credits to the affected Apple Card owners who could not use the payment method to purchase a new iPhone 13 model.

Apple Card holders receive 3% Daily Cashback when they use the credit card to make a purchase. However, on the morning when iPhone 13 pre-orders went live, a bug prevented several users from paying for the new iPhone 13 order via their Apple Card order but other credit cards worked. And they lost their 3% Daily Cash credit.

Apple apologizes for the inconvenience faced by Apple Card holders on iPhone 13 pre-order day and credits 3% Daily Cash in their Wallet app

In an email to the affected cardholders, Apple apologizes for the trouble faced on the pre-order day and credits the 3% Daily Cash award in their Wallet app which they would have earned if the transaction had been successful.

You successfully completed your iPhone pre-order with a payment method other than Apple Card. We understand that your initial purchase attempt with Apple Card was declined and you didn’t earn 3% Daily Cash.

We apologize for the inconvenience you experienced and want to make it up to you. We are providing you a credit for the Daily Cash on the initial payment of your iPhone 13. You’ll see this appear as a Balance Adjustment in the Wallet app. This will also appear on your October monthly statement.

Integrated with iPhone’s Wallet app, Apple Card eliminates fees, offers less interest, and is secured by Face ID and Touch ID authentication. Users can apply for the credit card easily via their iPhones and the approval or rejection process does not impact their credit score. Recently, Apple introduced a new Advanced Fraud Protection feature on the credit card with iOS 15 update which adds another layer of protection by periodically changing the three-digit security code associated with the card.
