Apple Store - monthly payment terms via Apple Card.. but not on refurbs

Well darn. Annoying, but I admit it's understandable. My late 2012 Mini is getting long in the tooth. I'm still trying to hold to "Don't pay more than $500 for a computer" rule of thumb I've had since I bought my first (used) Mac Plus.

OWC has a handful of more recent Mac mini models at under your $500 rule, depending on RAM/storage: [eshop.macsales.com]

I think they have a financing setup (6 months or similar) thru PayPal.

(FWIW, I like Apple Card's setup for extended purchases; tried it out with the most-recent AppleTV purchase. The setup in the Apple Card app (within wallet) is nice & clear. I'll likely use it again when it's time to upgrade my daughter's MacBook. I agree it sucks that it doesn't apply to their refurbs, though; as you probably surmised it's their desire to drive people to new purchases.)



(BTW, it's spelled < y'all >.)

Heh, did not know it didn't apply to refurbs, thanks for the head's up. Got the Apple Card last year in anticipation of purchasing a larger size M laptop when they finally appear. Been an Apple Store refurb purchaser for years. And belty, $500 Mac-Plus rule? IT"S THE 21st CENTURY NOW, YA OLD COOT!! jest smiley

Does the 3% reward still apply to refurbs?

$599 M1 mini (when on sale) is worth the extra Benjamin.

Unless you are military, or can access military discounts, where its been $499.

Yes, refurbs receive the 3% cash reward.
