"If you have Student Loans, you need this app" - Mark Cuban, ChangEd Investor

“…I already feel like it is helping me make a dent in my student loan debt. It is super simple to use, and I enjoy checking to see how much I’m saving. I also love the updates they give you on how much you are saving when they send your round-up receipts. Overall, I think it’s a great resource!”

- Sam, a ChangEd member

“I’ve been able to send an extra $1,000 over the last year to my student loans without effort! What a great idea. Using your spare change to pay your student loans.” -A review from Leslie

Collect change, pay down Student Loans, get out of debt sooner, and save money! Download the app that has helped send over $12 Million in extra student loan payments for our members. AKA the Squirrel Squad.

You have student loans...we all do (including all of the founders of ChangEd), and it's the biggest burden in our lives. Committing to 10,15, 25 years of repayment is no joke. ChangEd shortens your repayment and gets you out of debt sooner.

How does The ChangEd App work?…

•Spare change roundups

Simply link your main spending cards and we do the rest and save for you automatically. ChangEd aligns with your natural spending, makes small roundups to the next dollar, and applies the accumulated change toward your student loans.

•Link Multiple Student Loans

ChangEd covers all student loan servicers. From Navient, Great Lakes, AES, FLS, SoFi, MOHELA, Nelnet, Earnest, and many more. Link your student loan in your main hub and track your savings in your ChangEd dashboard!

•BOOSTing your savings

You also have the option to BOOST your savings directly in the app and knock out those student loans when you have an extra $20 here and there.

•Scheduled your BOOSTs

Schedule transfers to save on your own terms. $15 every Friday? $1 every day? It's up to you and on your schedule.

•Automate savings and payments

ChangEd runs in the background to save for you and automatically send payments. Set-it-and-forget-it. ChangEd makes transfers to your personal FDIC-insured ChangEd account based on roundups from your everyday purchases. Once your ChangEd balance reaches your set threshold, we automatically send a payment to your student loan servicer to be applied as an extra payment! Sit back and take years off of your repayment!

•Rewards for Saving and sharing

ChangEd PERKS is the only program that rewards you for getting ahead of your student loans. Earn points for completing milestones in the app.

•Student Loan Resources

Resources to help you learn more about your student loan debt and how to pay it off sooner.

**Average users save $50-$60/month in spare change roundups**

**Link multiple credit/debit cards to analyze for roundups**

**ChangEd charges a simple $3/mo from your ChangEd balance**

**Roundups and savings are automatic! So are the time-and-money saving payments toward your student loans!**

ChangEd reduces the need to budget for additional payments toward student loans because it aligns with your natural spending and automates the whole process.

Love this app from the beginning!

I started using this app in 2017, and I tell everyone about this app. Thanks to this app and my spare change, I might actually pay off my loan by the start of the new year! (A great way to start 2021 since 2020 sucked.) And for reference, I finished college in 2002. It takes time for money to transfer, but be patient and watch your bank account. I was impressed that when I contacted the developers asking about my first $100 transfer, I quickly received a personal response with an explanation on how it can take about seven days. Right now, my only “complaint” is that after an update a few years ago, my data seemed to stop showing my “interested saved” and time saved details. While that is not as important as knowing that my money is safe, I like knowing those little details as it gives me a sense of accomplishment. I don’t want to delete and download again to see if that fixes anything, but if you got any suggestions, I’m will to hear them. Overall, you won’t regret using this app to save you money in the long term on your student loans.

*** Edit: As soon as I posted, the developers reached out to offer help with my “complaint”. Again, amazing app with support staff. You will not regret using this to help save you money!

Super Stoked

Just got my first payment sent and I am SO HAPPY about it! I started using this app in Dec 2019 when I seen it on shark tank. I was kinda skeptical at first but omg! It’s great. Every dollar spent is rounded up even a whole dollar is rounded to nearest dollar. In 3 months I was able to put $100 towards one of my loans! I haven’t even started making payments on them yet, I just finished my degree last week. This is extremely helpful in getting that balance down sooner. $100 every 3 months really adds up so you may not think it’s worth the hassle of linking you account(s) and your loan(s) but it is totally worth 10min of screen flipping to save an extra $400 a year towards your student loan.

A good idea but it could use some improvements

I really like idea of money rounding apps such as this or ones that invest rounded change for you. However I wasn’t able to actually use this one. Unlike the investment apps I’ve seen this one takes a little more initiative on the users part to sign up. It’s not as simple as giving permissions to sync with your banking account and student loan account. It requires reviewing numerous screens on your loan account to find all their requested information. It does break it down for you and show you where to find all the required information according to who your loan provider is but in the end it wasn’t worth the aggravation.
This isn’t a payment plan so it’s not really a necessity and isn’t going to make you’re life easier. You’ll still need to makes sure your amount is paid in full each month. For me it wasn’t worth the hassle just to put a few dollars into the accounts each month.
Overall it’s a great concept but not worth the hassle.
