Apple Card customers in the U.S. can now open a savings account and earn interest through an Apple saving account.

  • Apple has partnered with Goldman Sachs once again for the banking feature. Savings accounts are technically managed by Goldman Sachs, which means that balances are covered by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).
  • This high-yield savings account has been created specifically for Apple Card customers.  Apple is going to offer an APY of 4.15%. It looks like a competitive offering when you look at data from Bankrate — you can currently find savings accounts that offer an APY of 3.5% to 4.75%. The company isn’t making any promise when it comes to future interest rates. It could go up and down at any time.

“We’ve obviously worked very closely at the overlap between who holds credit cards and who has a Marcus deposit, and that overlap is small” Solomon said on his company’s earnings call. “But we’ll obviously watch closely to see whether or not there’s any cannibalization.  Its a way for us to try to open up another deposit channel” and said “it’s always good for us to broaden our deposit base.”
