A massive amount of funds reportedly got poured by Apple credit cardholders into the high-yield savings accounts offered by the tech giant with Goldman Sachs upon their rollout.

The amount of deposits the Apple savings accounts saw in the four days after they became available reached up to $990 million, Forbes reported Monday. The outlet cited a pair of anonymous sources for the figure.

Apple’s plans to roll out the Goldman Sachs savings accounts to Apple Card users were first unveiled back in mid-October. Eligible individuals became able to set up theirs April 17.

Apple Card holders with the high-yield savings accounts are able to automatically put their Daily Cash cashback rewards into them, Apple said in an April press release announcing the availability of the accounts. On top of that, they can also move money from their linked bank accounts or Apple Cash card into them.
