So I purchased my new Xs Max and watch with my Citi double cash card.
It extends the warranty by 24 months so 3 years of warranty on the phone and watch (up to $10,000) per year.
And it includes 4 months of lost, stolen, or damage protection from the purchase date, up to $1000.

Just a tip I wanted to share. I never purchase Apple Care and if you are trying to save some money this might be a good idea for you too.

Obviously its not Apple Care but it sure does fill a void in terms of theft or damage for the first 4 months and the extension of the warranty :)

Just curious, what is the payment usually like monthly when you buy a device that is say, $1100?
Payment? I don't have a payment? I just transfer the money from my checking account to pay the credit card back and get the free points lol so a one time payment of $1100 plus tax lol
And plus my Apple watch 4 too that I bought

I see what you’re saying, but credit cards are the mark of the Beast, and put you on the grid.

I buy my yearly iPhones by barter. Usually two goats and a pig gets it done.

I don’t know. Two high quality baby fainting goats should cover a Max with 256GB. Maybe the pig gets you 512GB.

Also 2% cash back with this card on the purchase which is huge!
