Ratings and Reviews
Hasn’t changed in years. Old style app
I use my prepaid card as kind of an “allowance” for myself. The interface is not very user friendly. I’d like to see maybe Touch ID or a passcode instead of typing out my password every time. If I want to reload funds, I don’t like being asked for the 3 digits on the back of the funding card every single time. It just feels like a very elementary app and it’s not the fastest. I think some updating would be useful because it has good potential. Maybe they could draw some inspiration from the actual NFCU app, which is outstanding.
Minus 1 star
Really frustrated today. It's Earth Day, Sunday and my teens BD.
NFCU changed their site login since my last visit. I use Roboform on my iPad and today it won't let me enter login credentials. I suppose it thinks the Robo browser is a hack. So tried on regular iPad Safari browser. Twice said my last 4 SSN is incorrect which is impossible as I typed correctly.
Fearing a lock out I tried getting the mobile BUXX app. Initially had tried from Roboform browser but couldn't so that is another reason I tried from Safari. Had also tried searching Apple Store under Navy Federal Prepaid and Navy Federal Buxx. Nothing popped up. Anyway, tried from Safari. Another convoluted 5 page load until it finally opened the Buxx app in Apple Store.
So now, I am thinking I am nearly there. WRONG AGAIN! The BUXX app is saying my user name is incorrect. It's the same one that was accepted in the Roboform Browser and the Safari browser on my iPad. I tried direct type and I tried a copy/paste. No luck.
Headed over to computer and all was successful on Roboform computer login. While the NFCU is a full feature, solid preformer and replaces need for my computer, this NFCU BUXX app is a total failure. They missed the mark.
I would say please fix but apparently they have no intention of doing so given the poor reviews posted here going back for years.
This App is a Fail
As a parent with kids in college, I set-up Buxx cards for all my children and nieces & nephews as a back-up to their personal debit cards. At one time, the Buxx app allowed me to quickly log-in, assess balances and make deposits to any Buxx cards in my account. For the past couple years I cannot even log-on to the app as a parent -it demands a VISA card number as login-in entry point. As a parent, I DONT HAVE A VISA #, my kids do!! I just want a simple way to get onto the system as a parent to see balances and load cards without having to be at my desk on a PC.
NFCU has one of the best, user-friendly banking Apps I have ever used!! Why can’t the Buxx App be better?? I love the Buxx concept, but this App is so BAD, it completely cripples the entire system and ruins the concept!! Please fix this!
