Apple Card launch expands to all US iPhone users

Apple Card launch expands to all US iPhone users Apple has announced its Apple Card is available to everyone in the US starting today, expanding on the limited launch earlier this month. If you didn't see the many signup tutorial videos provided by Apple, you can apply by opening the Wallet app on your iPhone to start. The full rollout comes alongside an extra benefit for those happy to bank with the tech company: a three percent "Daily Cash" return offer that works with both Uber and Uber Eats.

Today, Venmo announced that it's launching a credit card in partnership with Synchrony. The card should be ready in the second half of 2020, and users will be able to apply for, use and manage it through the Venmo app. Cardholders will get real-time, granular alerts and be able to easily split and share purchases.

Synchrony already partners with Venmo's parent company PayPal, as well as many retail brands. As TechCrunch notes, adding a Venmo-branded card could help Venmo generate more revenue. Venmo launched a debit card last year, so it was only a matter of time before it added a credit card. It's actually surprising that it took this long.

PayPal acquires the company behind the Honey deal-finding extension for $4 billion .
PayPal should have tried a coupon codeWhen you’re shopping on one of the 30,000 online retailers Honey works with, the extension will find coupon codes for things you add to your cart and attempt to automatically apply them for you. In my experience, though, the codes Honey finds don’t always work — Best Buy’s online store didn’t take a Honey-found coupon for an order I created for a Nintendo Switch, for example — but it’s a useful service to at least help you check for coupon codes before you buy something.
