App does not recognize a new debit card.
I liked this app for a long time. But, recently I received a new debit card and even after following the in app instructions I could not get the app to recognize one my card.
I have called customer service several times and they were unable to help. In fact my most recent attempt today customer service told me they only take care of checking and savings accounts.
They said the app is not theirs and they do not have means to support it.
Still have not got it fixed so it works right.
You guys need to fix the issue with the card update screen.
Update: I eventually had to delete and reinstall the app. Hopefully it’s doing what I want it to do now...

53rd Giving me Extra “momentum”
I have seen similar apps or programs that allow you to make small change amount payments towards student loans but never used them. I am SO happy 53rd offers this and wish I had found it earlier! I have a story that unfortunately matches a lot of individuals my age: Attended college through financial aid to pursue my dream of working in healthcare. I was hired 2 weeks after graduating with a degree board certification as an Athletic Trainer and things seemed awesome! Unfortunately my field is one of “passion” and not “fortune” so my government and private loans came in FAST. I now have the peace of mind that although I can’t afford to make larger extra payments 53rd allows me to chip away at my debt effortlessly. I am on track to a better financial future and so happy they made an app that was SO SIMPLE to follow. Took about 2 minutes to pull up my info and enter it. Afternoon coffee=rounded up towards my debt. Woohoo!

Thank you! We love that you love the app! ♥️
Good, but app could give more details
I really like the function of this app and it has really helped pay down my loans.
One request: it would be really nice to see within the app, current rounds-up that have not been dispersed to your loan. Currently you get a running total of all of your round ups and payments per month, but, in addition, it would nice to see which rounds-up that have not been applied to your loan via a payment. (Ex. I see a payment was dispersed Friday for 5.50, but I have had several roundups in and around Friday. No way to tell without manually tracking how much is building up for the next payment, unless the following Friday, I see another payment was made, but then the cycle continues). Would be nice to see a field named something fitting, like: ‘unpaid round ups’.
