Apple Card Dubbed SEXIST After Women Are Given Lower Credit Limits Than Men

Apple Card is under fire for being allegedly sexist after women apparently received lower credit limits than their husbands.

According to the New York Post, entrepreneur David Heinemeier Hansson tweeted about the "gender bias" problem after he received 20 times the credit limit that his wife received, even though they filed joint tax returns and she had a better credit score than him.

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak also had the same issue with his wife.

"We have joint cards from Capital One...We don't have different limits on those cards," said Wozniak.

A spokesman for Goldman Sachs Group Inc., who partnered with Apple to launch the card in August, responded to the accusations on Sunday, saying, "We have not, and will not, make decisions based on factors like gender."

A rep for the bank said Apple Card applicants are evaluated independently on income and creditworthiness, also taking personal credit scores and personal debt into account.

Have you had this issue happen to you? Producer Brent says he and his wife were both given the same credit limit on Apple Card.
