Credit card for Apple store?

    What's the best spending tactic for a large purchase at the Apple store? Are there any bonus opportunities or should I just use my favorite everyday spend card?

    Everyday spend is best - though if you make the purchase online you can take advantage of online shopping bonuses.

    Or a card that you need to meet minimum spend on, especially AX which is more sensitive to MS.

    I actually have the Barclays Apple Credit Card because I make a lot of purchases and I get free financing, online bonuses, and gift cards for points I’ve earned. I’m also on the Apple Upgrade program and my monthly phone costs earn points back as well. Clearly, this option probably doesn’t interest too many here but it meets my needs.

    If you've got the US Bank Cash+ card and have chosen electronics stores as one of your 5% cash back categories, that could be an option. Or use a Citibank card that has Citi Price Rewind in case you later find it cheaper elsewhere.

    You don't say what you'll be buying but if it's a phone, last month Gary at VFTW had a post about using the Chase Ink Preferred card for that: http://viewfromthewing.boardingarea.com/2017/11/06/one-thing-iphone-breaks/
