How is it different from that Barclaycard Financing Visa® suggestions?
The Barclaycard Financing Visa® – Formerly called Barclaycard Visa from Apple Rewards – also allows you to fund Apple products. But there is a key difference between offering a card and advertising an Apple Card.
З Barclaycard Financing Visa®, you get deferred interest offers, in which interest is not waived, but presented separately and accrued in the background. If you recoup Apple purchases in full before the end of the promotional period, you will not be paid anything more. But if you still owe the balance on that purchase, if the promotional offer ends – even if it’s only a few cents – from the date of purchase you will be charged interest.
The Apple Card, by contrast, is a true 0% interest rate installment financing. You pay a set amount for each billing cycle – which is automatically included in the minimum payment for that month – until the purchase pays off. You will not be charged interest during this time. And unlike Barclaycard Financing Visa®, Apple Card receives awards.
However Barclaycard Financing Visa® In some cases, it may still make sense. All because it offers up to 18 months deferred interest on purchases of $ 999 and above. If you buy an expensive Mac, you’ll enjoy a few months to pay for it on your own schedule. Just make sure you can repay them by the end until those 18 months are over.
