To help customers practice social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic, Apple is extending its 3% cash back reward to physical Apple Cards when users make a drive-thru order at Walgreens.

Typically reserved for touchless Apple Card transactions processed through Apple Pay, the 3% bonus is applicable to drive-thru purchases made with a physical Apple Card. Apple announced the promotion in an email to Apple Card holders on Friday.

"In an effort to help you practice social distancing, you'll now get 3% back with your titanium Apple Card when you use drive-thru ordering," Apple's email reads.

In addition to touchless Apple Pay payments, and the new physical card capability, Walgreens customers can get 3% cash back when paying with Apple Card online or through the Walgreens app.

Apple first partnered with Walgreens to offer Apple Card customers 3% cash back on certain items in September. As part of the deal, Walgreens agreed to expand availability of Apple accessories like Lightning cables, EarPods and iPhone cases to 2,600 stores.

Beyond the Apple Store and a handful of select retailers, Apple Card transactions net users 2% back on purchases processed through Apple Pay and 1% back on physical card swipes.

The Walgreens offer is valid now through June 30, according to Apple.
