We understand how difficult this could be for you, and we want to help. Our Customer Assistance Program is designed to help customers who may have difficulty making payments, by allowing them to skip their August payment without incurring any interest charges. Would you like to enroll in our Customer Assistance Program?
Once you type "Yes," you will get a confirmation from Goldman Sachs that they are working on your request. They also note to cancel any scheduled payment.
An Apple Card Specialist at Goldman Sachs is processing your request. You're all set for now, and you'll receive an email confirmation within a week once you're enrolled. Once enrolled, you may skip your next payment due on August 31, without incurring any interest charges. IMPORTANT: Please turn off any scheduled payment you may have for August. If you do not cancel your scheduled payments, your payment will still be processed for August.
