Today Apple finally announced their long-rumored savings accounts that lets Apple Card users grow their cash. Now Apple Card users can deposit cash into a savings account and get a 4.15% APY. That is significantly higher than the average savings account of 0.37%.
“Savings helps our users get even more value out of their favorite Apple Card benefit — Daily Cash — while providing them with an easy way to save money every day,” said Jennifer Bailey, Apple’s vice president of Apple Pay and Apple Wallet. “Our goal is to build tools that help users lead healthier financial lives, and building Savings into Apple Card in Wallet enables them to spend, send, and save Daily Cash directly and seamlessly — all from one place.”
Apple says that all Daily Cash earned by a user will automatically be deposited into their account. The one catch is the maximum balance your Apple Savings account can reach is $250,000.
These savings accounts will be managed by Goldman Sachs and can be access through the Apple Wallet app.
