Apple is extending terms of an Apple Card offer for 0% APR financing after some customers incorrectly assumed they would receive the payment option with their purchase.

Last week, Apple and banking partner Goldman Sachs sent out an email informing certain Apple Card customers that they were entitled to 0% financing on their recent Apple product purchase.

It seems some cardholders expected to receive the financing perk, known as Apple Card Monthly Installments, on ineligible items. Apple caught wind of the confusion and decided to honor the installment conditions for certain transactions.

"We understand that some customers expected to receive 0% APR financing automatically when purchasing Apple products with their Apple Card," the email read. "If you expected to receive 0% APR financing with Apple Card Monthly Installments when purchasing an Apple product from either Apple or an Apple Authorized Reseller, but you did not, we can help."

The original offer was good until Dec. 8, but Apple has extended the deadline to Dec. 15, according to 9to5Mac.

A special program available to Apple Card customers, Monthly Installments is a 0% financing option that applies to purchases made through Apple.com, the Apple Store app or at a brick-and-mortar Apple Store. Most major product lines, including iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, Mac and AirPods and Apple TV, are considered eligible for monthly installments. Payment periods range from six months to 24 months, depending on the product.
