    I was just curious if it's possible to use the Barclaycard to finance an Apple Watch?

    Note, yes I can afford an Apple Watch and pay it in full right now. But as an upcoming college student this fall with other things to pay, I feel like taking advantage of this 0% APR promotion is a good deal. Yes I have my own credit and debit card and know how to keep track of my billings and paying on time. If Possible, I will obviously pay more than the minimum payment just to be on the safe side.

    Thank you

    I used it for my purchase. It only works for purchases in the first 30 days of you opening your account though.

    So you're saying, if I open my Barclay account today and I am approved, I can purchase the Apple Watch today as well with no issues? I will still get the 0% APR promotion? I'm doing some research and saw something like it'll only work IF your Apple Watch gets charged within the first 30 days or they'll charge interest? I just don't want to purchase an Apple Watch and not get this offer because Apple fails to charge me within the first 30 days.

    Barclay is currently running a promotion because of the Watch. As long as you purchase by 5/31, you'll receive special financing (source: email they sent cardholders).

    I have an old Barclays card but they sent me an offer that ends 5/31. When I order a watch I get an email from Barclays that says they see my purchase and will hold the offer until it ships

    I was told as long as you preorder within the promotion period, you'll be fine.
