(EXPIRED) 15% back on Apple products via Drop

Sorry, this deal is no longer available. Do you want to be alerted about new deals as they’re published? Click here to subscribe to Frequent Miler's Instant Posts by email.

The Drop app is offering 150 points per dollar on Apple purchases, which equates to 15% back in the form of popular gift cards (like Amazon). That’s a huge rate of return for Apple purchases, so if you’re planning to buy any Apple products this is something to consider. Note that I’m not sure if there is a cap as to how much you can earn — see the offer for details if you have the Drop app.

The Deal

Key Details

  • Valid 8/19/19 to 8/20/19 (though it could be pulled at any time)
  • Member must follow steps and meet all criteria on the offer page to receive points (so read those terms)
  • Please allow up to 80 days after purchase posts to your statement for Drop points to be posted.
  • Offer cannot be combined with any other offers or promo codes.
  • Exclusions: Points are issued by Drop, not Apple. Products not eligible for points are gift cards, gift wrap, trade-in program, Bose products, Apple Developer Programs and shipping.
  • Apple sells and ships products to end user customers only; you may not purchase for resale.
  • Eligible only to a customer for up to five (5) units per eligible product, except iPhone, in which case only two (2) units within a thirty-day (30-day) period are eligible.

Quick Thoughts

Again, we just don’t often see large portal increases for Apple purchases. According to Cash Back Monitor, the best cash rate we’ve seen in the past 15 months was 10% back (and that was only two days). We’ve seen 10 miles per dollar a couple of times — though note that many portals have particular restrictions.

The Drop app is a card-linked tool where you’ll use a card linked with the program to complete your purchase. Drop requires you to link your card with your bank login details. While it’s probably no less secure than any other system these days (we all know that even the banks have breaches these days), I personally draw the line there on most newer apps. Drop has been around for a couple of years, but I didn’t complete the sign up process because I didn’t want to provide that info.

Doctor of Credit has a thorough review of the app and reports that this deal (the return at Apple) is even valid on iPhones, Apple watches, etc. That could make this an awesome deal on a new iPhone.

Again, I don’t use this app myself, but I figured that some readers would surely be interested in the large return on Apple products, which I assume could potentially stack with a portal payout if you’re buying something that isn’t excluded by the portals (but see the terms of the deal in the app).

Finally, it is worth noting that one commenter at Doctor of Credit notes that there could be a weekly cap on earnings as low as $10. I don’t see that in the DoC review of Drop or the post, so I’d be inclined to think that isn’t the case, but you should definitely read the details in the app if you decide to go after this offer.

These people are shady and points never post for anything. Kind of hilarious to offer a crazy rate on high priced products then limit the cash back to $10. Totally something that a company like this would do.


yeah none of the “power” card linked offers post for me anymore. I was apparently blackballed or buying gift cards and earning too much cash back a couple of years ago…finally got it fixed about a year ago and I’ve gotten maybe a dollar in cash back since then. Nothing ever posts.

I wonder if this will this work on cracked camera lens repair covered by CIP? Apple says the only way to repair the lens is to replace the whole phone. I’ve already filed my claim and am waiting put this could be a nice icing on the cake!
