This app literally saved me

This is too good to be true you might wonder, like I did, so when they asked for my bank information and were verifying it by adding a dollar then subtracting it I thought I just fooled myself. I waited it out because I had no other choice, and thank goodness I did. Because this app literally fed me when I was going through serious hardship and they helped me pay off my overdue credit card on time by just allowing me to get the money already earned at work. Even through this Pandemic, they’re still operating and doing the best they can. This was my only issue: my bank is a credit union, so direct deposit hit a day early but always in the afternoon, so Earnin deducted the money I borrowed that morning as they should, making my account negative and incurring overdraft fees. I thought this was part of the “catch”. I contacted their support team late at night (I think around 11 or 12) because I commute 2 hours and a half to and from work (each way. Yeah, I was really going through it that year) and told them Earnin pulled too early in the day. They asked me to screenshot the overdraft fees for a refund, which happened right then and there and allowed me to quickly get groceries before the train came.

All in all, if you’re really going through financial hardship, please trust on me that this is the perfect app. I’m writing This because I’m having one of those “I’m grateful for this “ moments. Thanks for taking the time to read :)

What happened????

I was using this app every once in awhile for a few months without any problems. It was great! Starting a few weeks ago, I began getting an error message at log in saying I needed to reconnect my bank. I tried several times with no success. I kept getting a message that would say it’s taking longer than usual so try back. I’d wait a few days and try again but the same errors were given to me. I’d even tried to uninstall and reinstall the app twice. Yesterday I emailed a help ticket. Today I received an email saying my ticket was closed because chat was now available so use chat. Well I went to chat in and kept getting hold messages saying there were over 100 people waiting every single time I tried. Finally I had a break in my day and was able to just sit and wait for 30 minutes. The Earnin agent told me my bank was blocking the apps access and I needed to clear some kind of pop up message from my banks site using my laptop not my phone. I went to my banks site and there wasn’t a message or alert or pop up. I called my bank and they said they aren’t blocking any third party access. The agent I spoke to told me he actually used the Earnin app last week from his account with the bank. I believe my bank because I also have the Dave app and that app isn’t having any issues at all with connecting to my bank. I just don’t understand what has happened. Can’t seem to get any answers.

Like a credit card,without the credit check!!!

I’ve been using Earnin for a couple months now and I have to say at first I was skeptical, I mean an app that’s supposed to link to your account?? I was really strapped for cash and my credit limit was maxed out when my car broke down, thankfully I was able to stumble across this app. It took 10-24 hours for them to verify and link the app to my bank account but as soon as I did I was able to cash out $100 within minutes it went straight to my account. If you are on the fence of opening another credit card try this app first. As of now there is no MANDATORY fee but optional tips that keep the app afloat and as with credit the better you tip and pay back your cash outs the better your cash outs can be. This pay period I got a boost to be able to front $200 from my next paycheck as opposed to the initial $100. One problem I’m seeing a lot of people have with this app is that it is like a credit card account in the fact that your payment takes up to two days to process so if you don’t have the money in the account it can definitely leave you overdrawn because it comes out of your account the day of or the day after your paycheck automatically. I have and will continue to recommend this app so long as privacy and fee policies don’t change too drastically in the future. Thanks Earnin for helping take the edge off life’s ever sharp blade! ✊🏼👍🏼💸💰
