Ratings and Reviews
Great App for College Students
I was skeptical at first downloading this app because of the reviews and how many people weren’t getting approved or the app crashing. I downloaded anyways to see what the app was about. I was looking for a cash advance app to somewhat help build my credit. I put in my card information without any problems. I was approved up to $600 and I didn't even have credit. I love this app and it’s been helpful knowing when my next payments are. I try to make my payments early (2-3 days) so nothing would be considered late. That seems to work!
Advice I would give is to connect a bank that is not to brand new (at least a year older) and has frequent activity (including deposits). The way, you are approved for more.
Only negative thing about this app is it takes a while to update my spending report, which I really don’t mind because I am aware of how much I spend.
All in all, I like this app & Hopefully I will be able to recharge once I am done repaying!
Ehh but the best option for cash on the spot
I wanted to wait until I paid off my first loan in full before writing a review to ensure I was fair about my full experience. Overall, I think this is a cool idea. I took out the loan when I was going through a hard time after a bad car accident and was out of work for a few months. It helped me keep up on my bills and help with my moving costs. I didn’t face the approval problems a lot of people faced. Maybe it was my credit score or the algorithm or if student in my area are good at repaying idk it was simple for me. I have had some problems with the app (ie. Setting up a payment and the app is like frozen or delays and I have to force close and reopen the app and either reset up the payment or the payment went through and I just went on with my day). I also have an issue with their hours because a lot of students (their target demographic) is available when their customer service is «available » and when I do contact Im offered pre scripted response or the bot. The last conversation I had with customer service the guy was on the edge of being rude with me when I was simply asking him to elaborate on how they report to the credit bureaus. My credit score hasn’t been going up from this service but from my other accounts that are accruing interest and I want my punctual and SUPER EARLY payment to be reflected on my report. I will update if I have a new and better outcome the second time around

Really helped me out!
So I saw the ad for this on a Tik Tok, and I had to check it out. I’m a 21 year old college student who was struggling for gas money to get to my job, so I didn’t need much money. I downloaded the app and got approved for 1,400, however I knew I wouldn’t be able to pay off that much in the time allotted options (3 months, 6 months, 12 months). I also was scared about some of the reviews (splotchy customer service) so I didn’t want to end up owing a number way out of my reach if anything went wrong. I opted to only get a loan of $100 as that would give me enough gas money to get me to my next paycheck when I would be able to pay the loan off in full. I just paid the loan off in full a few days ago, and it was honestly a very easy process. Probably won’t use this app again as I don’t need a loan anymore, however will always keep it in my back pocket if I get into another situation. All in all I had a really good experience start to finish!
