Apple has added a new cashback partner. Apple CardAce Hardware will be added to the store. When customers shop at Ace Hardware in stores, online or in-app, using Apple Card with Apple Pay, they’ll receive 3% cashback through Apple’s Daily Cash. The retailer joins a small group of cashback partners who pay at the 3% rates, including Uber Eats. Panera Bread. Exxon Mobil. Nike. Walgreens.
“As the only home improvement retailer to offer 3% Daily Cash back on Apple Card, we are thrilled to offer Ace customers even more value when they use Apple Card with Apple Pay to shop online, in-app, and at Ace stores in neighborhoods throughout the U.S.,” Kim Lefko, senior vice president and chief marketing officer at Ace Hardware said in a press release. “This benefit coupled with our award-winning service and best-in-class brands will deliver even more value for consumers as they confidently maintain and upgrade their most valuable asset – their home.”
Apple Card’s Daily Cash deposits cash into your Apple Cash card in your Wallet app when you make purchases. You get a percentage of your purchase back, depending on where you shop with your Apple Card: 3% at Apple and at specific outlets if you use Apple Pay, 2% using Apple Pay at other retailers, and 1% for any other purchase where Apple Pay isn’t accepted. Apple Cash can then be used to pay for purchases using Apple Pay, to send money to family and friends, to pay on your Apple Card, and to transfer it into your bank account.
To use Apple Card, you will need an iPhone or iPad running the latest operating system. You also have to add it into the Wallet app. You do need an Apple Cash card to use Daily Cash in most cases, but if you don’t, you can use Daily Cash as a credit to your balance.
Ace Hardware customers will be able to earn points through the Ace Rewards program. Once they’ve signed up, customers can put those points toward discounts, offers and savings.
Ace Hardware’s cashback partnership does not apply to online gift card purchases or mobile app purchases. It also doesn’t apply to third-party merchants within an Ace Hardware Store using an independent point-of-sale system.
