The promotion is limited to the first 100,000 qualifying transactions, which means Apple will donate $1 million to the National Park Foundation.
Apple’s event was to link the 100-year anniversary of the Grand Canyon National Park, which was designated a national park 100 years ago. Listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, the magnificent canyon landscape is the destination of approximately 6 million visitors a year.
Apple will also celebrate health-related achievements on August 25th, encouraging Apple Watch owners to walk at least three miles, the same distance as the Cedar Ridge hiking trail for beginners on the South Kaibab Trail in the Grand Canyon. The finisher can get a badge reward.
