Stellar!

This bank is definitely great! The layout and interface is real cool to look at and move through while checking your account information.

Great customer service as well! I noticed that my account became locked due to a mistake my end in which I caused a few payments to be reversed from using the wrong account details, and the customer service helped lift the hold from account in great timing. Very prompt service, and I highly recommend Envel!

Not a functional bank

Seems like a lot of people writing reviews are excited about what Envel MIGHT be in the future. But if you want to have a fully functioning bank, you really need to go elsewhere. Unfortunately, reading the fine print on their website will not help you, as they misrepresent their features. Case in point:

Envel says that their Shared Envelope allows you to have a shared account that “anyone” can use to collectively deposit and withdraw funds — kind of like a joint account. Unfortunately, this is a lie. Anyone who uses a Shared envelope must also have an Envel account! Furthermore, Shared envelope users cannot transfer more than $1500 a day. So if you live in a household with shared expenses, you cannot manage your money if you need to manage more than $1500 a day (you know, like if you need to send your partner your share of the rent/mortgage payment so bills can be paid on time).

Envel blames most of their problems on their partner bank, a tiny bank that is run out of Kansas City and doesn’t seem to be able to address modern banking needs. Further, if you want to set up bill pay with this tiny little bank you will either get denied access or be told this bank doesn’t exist. Very, very sketchy.

I’ve asked Envel to update their marketing messages so they won’t trick future customers into believing it might work for them. So far, they have not.

Developer Response ,

Hey there,

I am so sorry that you had a negative experience. We have been working on updating all the copy on our website in order to clarify certain features. We are also working with our banking partner to make the daily limits more flexible, as well as to support linkage with more vendors (we sent them a very urgent email this morning). 

Unfortunately, these issues are not always resolved instantaneously, but we appreciate your feedback and will continue to work to improve our user experience. True joint accounts are a top priority for us later this year once we finish our current round of updates. If there is anything we can do to improve your experience, please let us know. I am truly sorry that this has caused you frustration and stress, but we are committed to resolving these issues and are also happy to schedule a feedback call between you and our product/engineering team, if you care to voice your opinions directly to the creators of Envel. Our entire team greatly values constructive feedback, especially from users who have had a negative experience as we are always aiming to improve. Let us know if that is something you would be interested in!

Best,
Jacqui

Really great app just needs some bug fixing

I really enjoy the concept of the app and really enjoy it but I recently came across a bug that when you pump gas at any pump station it takes away money before hand to cover the amount your about to spend but after it does not return the extra amount that was supposed to be left. Other banks have the same process but once you finish putting gas it just charges you the right amount but for envel the money never gets returned and takes away all the money in the envelope I made for gasoline. I contacted support but they took so long to return my money it was really annoying. Other than that the app is great

Developer Response ,

Hey there,
Thank you for your feedback! I apologize about the gas station issue, our technical team is currently working on a fix. Additionally, with our upcoming tagging transactions feature, you will be able to designate where you would like transactions to be pulled from after the fact. For example, after a Gas transaction you can select that you would like the entire amount to be pulled from your Gas envelope, and for all future transactions from that vendor to be pulled from your Gas envelope. I hope that this will help resolve your issues!
If you have any other feedback about how we could improve, we would love to hear from you on our community forum: https://community.envel.ai
