Earnin is a simple way to access your earnings before payday—and live life on your terms. Get up to $100/day or $500/paycheck to cover any expense.‡

Cash advances and loans can be confusing, misleading, and costly. With Earnin, you can tap into the funds you’re already earning—for free.[1] Unexpected bill or upcoming rent? We got you. With Earnin, there’s no interest, no credit checks, and no surprises.‡

Here’s how it works: If you cash out $100, you get $100. Add an optional tip to support the community, and that’s it.[2] When payday comes around, we’ll deduct the $100 you previously cashed out from your direct deposit plus any tips.

Quickly receive your hard-earned cash ahead of payday, right to your bank account. We work with Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Capital One, TD Bank, Chase, Navy Federal Credit Union, PNC Bank, USAA Bank, and more.

Access your earnings in minutes with Lightning Speed transfers.[1] By taking advantage of the funds you’re already earning, you get a smarter (and faster) alternative to a cash advance.

Whereas cash advances and loans are packed with high interest and headaches, Earnin is designed to work for you with more peace of mind. You can even save a portion of your earnings using the Tip Yourself feature, to reach your next financial goal sooner.[3]

Balance Shield Alerts send you notifications whenever your bank balance runs low.[4]

The Earnin Financial Calendar also lets you know in advance when you have recurring payments coming up—no money surprises here.

Great service, app, and customer support

Pros: - app is near bug free - the service itself is fast and only the only expense is how much gratuity you’d like to provide, personally I do about 10-15% because that would be the equivalent of an okay credit card - when I changed jobs and my schedule went from biweekly to monthly I had some overdrawn charges, I worked with earnin to reverse that and get my account in good standing promptly, thank you! Cons: - only con i experienced is that when I went from biweekly to monthly my monthly “borrow” amount was cut in half, this is because a pay period is treated the same no matter the duration. I’d suggest that users that get paid monthly have double the maximum, this would give me the same amount of flexibility I had before at my last job. It also gives me an opportunity to tip more. I hope to see this in the future Thanks for your hard work team, you’ve made a great service!

Update: I would like to reiterate from above that the opportunity to borrow is lower now that I get paid monthly instead of biweekly. Before I was able to tip more a month, two times the tip on my current limit. The risk is the same because it is the same net amount of money I used to be trusted with, I feel like this is a huge opportunity for financial gain, to help make our experience better.

Please create a ipad app. I use it on a keyboard and would love to see my repeatings bills on it. I love that feature, thank you for adding it.

We appreciate your thoughtful and detailed review. This is incredibly helpful. We want to let you know that we've taken the good and the bad elements you've mentioned in your review to heart. We build Maxes into the app to help people keep in control. All members start with a $100 Max and this can change from $50-$500 as you continue using the app. This applies whether you are paid weekly, bi-weekly, semi-monthly, or monthly. You can check the factors we consider to increase your Max by tapping the "Max Info" from your home screen. Also, we are continuously working on adding more features to our app to make your experience better. We'll make sure to incorporate your feedback in our next update. Thanks for the support!

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 :)

or our Community Members. We really appreciate your business. Please let us know what we can do for you in the future. :)



When I first read about this app I actually had to re-read the whole thing twice! Why... it really sounded too good to be true... I man who does this ? They really do “give” you a pay day advance fo FREE! What’s the catch? THERE IS NO CATCH! I’ve borrowed 100$ a day for four days in a row... yes, $400 bucks. I’m in sales so some weeks it’s feast or famine- if that’s you too - the this app is for you. I’ve saved soooo much money in NSF fees - the fee was 35$ and sometimes I incurred it just to buy groceries for me and the kids, knowing my next check was being deposited in a day or so. Since downloading this app - I’ve never had one since - you saved me hundreds.

We’ve all been there .... this app is really is a life saver. I am so pleased to know there are kind souls out there who have designed this app so we can all benefit from it if needed - When I read how som people gave this app a single star - I just don’t understand how or why as it literally costs you nothing and you can tip if you want to or not if you don’t. There’s no reason for anyone to give y’all lass than 5 stars: I’ve only given three app reviews in the last 10 yrs so it means so much to me to have this app protecting me and my children. THANK YOU AND YOUR DEVELOPMENT TEAM - I’ve told everyone I know about how great this app is!
We all need help - the level is different. G-d Bless you all!!!!! ************** A+
