On my way review

I feel that On My Way is a good way and a good incentive to help people to be focused on the road when driving, and to also reward them for doing so. I’m sure as they say that they’ve helped save many lives! That being said, actually getting rewarded for driving safe was a little tricky. I went through all the steps that I was told to do: Taking a video of my purchase of gas, making sure to say: “Thanks on my way,” on the video, and putting #onmywaydrives on my social media account and tagging two friends. I don’t EVER remember seeing instructions saying that I had to “make the post public,” or “submit the video on my social as well along with the hashtag.” But after several emails back and forth with On My Way, this was what I was told needed to happen in order to receive the $5 cash back in my Venmo. It would really help if there were clearer instructions. I almost felt like I was never going to see the $5, or that they were just going to keep telling me “do this and do that, and was going to lead nowhere. Fortunately though, after completing those extra steps, I did receive the $5 via Venmo today. That’s my only suggestion is to PLEASE add clearer instructions to the app so no one has to go through all that hassle again!!

Fabulous Customer Service

I’ve been using OnMyWay for about five years now. I’ve been collecting miles quietly for ages. And I’ve never had any issues with the app. It always counts where I go, it’s never slowed me down, it’s so good.
Recently, I did contact customer service because the app began interfering with my maps service. On Apple, a blue bar appears around the current time that you can hit to go to your directions. OnMyWay began interfering with that interface, so I left them some feedback in an interview. They said they’d get back to me and I figured that was as far as they would go.
THEY FIXED THE PROBLEM. AND THEN. EMAILED ME BACK TO TELL ME. I was so impressed! I felt so listened to! It wasn’t as if I had yelled or demanded a fix in my email - I was just leaving some feedback. But they really went to the stars and I was so touched by it.
Long story short, wonderful app, wonderful people, wonderful life. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Bummed about this

I was so excited to check this app out and thought it was a great idea! Unfortunately it’s quite scammy. I watched the welcome video and spent some time reading reviews and learning the app. There seem to be 2 ways to earn money- 1. Use your points to buy a part share of an NFT…. A notoriously scammy property that doesn’t translate into actual money for you (but might, maybe, someday, soon, if it’s luckier than all the other NFTs out there…) and 2. To work as the world’s worst paying influencer and make an entire video promoting the app while you’re purchasing food or getting gas, share it with your social media ppl, tag them and friends, etc. For $5. I have friends who get paid $100s or thousands to create and share videos like these, even simple ones. What on earth? Do you want to turn your socials into basically a space for ads? I don’t.

They keep promising in the reviews that it will get better, so I’ll keep it for now. I don’t text and drive so I don’t need the app to force me to leave my phone, but if you need the motivation of earning pretend money, I think it’s good for that! I’m not sure if it will be useful to me in the future, but I hope they make it better or someone makes a good version of this app, because it’s a great idea. It’s just executed poorly, I’m so sad to say.

Good concept

I think the concept of this app is really good. Getting people to stay off of their phones by rewarding them with money. I have yet to be able to get the money. At first the app said it would get it into your bank account. Now there are “store cards” your money can go towards and you have to get an insane amount of money if you want it into your back account. I wanted to use the 250 card but it said I have to refer 250 people! 250 people!!!!! - This was a review I wrote about a year ago and I just not checked the app again and I have over 1000 and there is NO way for me to cash out that money. Only to use it on 5 dollars of mcdonald’s or starbucks. also, you have to video your order and shoutout/post onmyway to even get the money. not worth it. Update months later: i had over 1,000 dollars and they launched a new crypto/nft program and i put over 500 in it under the impression i would be able to sell my nft and get cash. this still hasn’t happened in over 6 months. they keep changing the date in when you will be able to do this. Update: still cannot cash out NFTs like they said i would be able to almost a year ago! i have like 1000 in NFTs and 1001 in on my way and can’t do anything with it!

It actually is a scam…

I never write reviews so that’s how bad this is… it’s not real! You do accumulate “cash” for miles driven but you can only redeem it on gift cards for junk the app itself is selling that always costs just a bit more than what the gift card is worth. Just when you’re about to give up on it, they’ll lure you back with new offers “coming soon” but they never actually arrive. And if you have questions about the so-called offers or promotions, the “real-time chat help” is a joke. There is no chat option even though that’s literally what they call it, the link just takes you to a list of articles. When you finally find a way to contact “helpdesk” they will just email you a link to that same list of articles! If you’re as stubborn as I am to get at least something out of the miles driven with this app, it’ll take about 10 years to cash out the thousand bucks (assuming that’s even still an offer 10 years down the line). But the app will drain your phone’s battery life in the meantime. I’ve held out several years for ANY kind of reward but I think I have to finally cut my losses and delete the app, they’ve sucked me dry.

Great idea but poor application

I like the idea of the app. I’ve had it for about two years and have accumulated over $2000 in on my way cash. They’re have just not been anything worth redeeming the rewards for. It’s was all modern merch gear which is a cheap brand that breaks and no cash out offers, gift cards, or even options to donate to a charity even.
Now with the new update they’re aren’t any offers for you to redeem the on my way cash for which kinda makes the point of the app unless. You now only offer a true direct shop, some free stuff for uploading a video, and referral items. So what’s the point of having an app that pays you for driving safe if you can’t use the so called money your earning.
I get the idea and think it’s a great way to encourage people to stay off their phones while driving, but it is being presented and implemented poorly. Would like to see some more improvement as you go forward

Don’t waste your time with this app

They give you 5 cents per mile of distraction free driving. I think it’s a great thing to get rewarded to do what we should be doing anyway. The problem though is that you can’t cash out on your earnings. They used to have “marathon” cash deals, but those were often unavailable, and you had to have over $5,000 of OnMyWay cash and refer over 50 people. But now all they have are discounts for items, which you have to pay for yourself. They’re supposedly launching a crypto program, but their promised launch date has come and gone, and it still hasn’t launched yet. There is no phone number to call if you have an issue, they’re reachable by email only and a response takes days (if they respond to you at all.) I’ve been trying to reach out to them regarding their crypto program, but they seem to be ignoring my messages. I currently do not recommend this app to anyone based on their customer service and current offers. If my issue doesn’t get resolved soon with them, I will be deleting my account. If something good happens with them, I’ll update my review.

At first I was liking the app now I don't like it at all because you earn so much on here just to be told that you have to pay for your things first with your money record a video and then post the video on social medial which isn't any one business how you get your money then you have to send you video to on my way just for spending your money and then when you lost it to them your not getting paid what you spend your only getting paid what they give you just for your driving I think this is a big scam after all then not only that you have to wait 24-48 hours just to get your money and some time when you clip the coupon they give you the coupon expire in a week so it's all just a scam of using you to drive your own car and spending money that you earned for driving this app is not useful at all and I'm about to delete the app plus they give coupons of places no one ever go to and gas stations that aren't even located well names the same as the gas stations in your city and it's very overwhelming I wouldn't refer this app to any one cause it's a scam

Developer Response ,

Hi chaqunta, It is not a scam because you do not want to follow the steps required to be paid. The gas stations and food options rotate so if you don't have something in your area now check back in the future!

You won’t get paid for sharing your data that they are taking. You can see how much money is added as you are driving but if you want to cash out the money that you have earned, you can't. They give you options to use the money you have earned on cheap worthless things and you still have to use your money to be able to purchase any item. It is like you spending your earn money in their store because they do not want to pay the money to you and you still have to pay cash money to complete any purchases. Even though you have enough earn money, they want you to use you cash also. I want to be able to cash out the money I've earned to pay bills and I can't. They won't give you the option for it. I have asked them to delete my account and they told me to wait three days after uninstalling the app. I checked after months and my account ccwas not deleted. I wonder what are they doing with our information. They have gotten more then what they are willing to give. Which is nothing for it.

Not worth it for consumer

I started with this app years ago when you could actually earn on my way cash and then “cash it out” directly to your bank. The twist was that you had to have at least $200. I was right under $200 when the business decided to switch it to NFT. I waited MONTHS for that transition to happen just to find out I couldn’t “cash out” the entirety into crypto. I have almost $400 in OnMyWay cash and I’m told the only way to “cash out” is to redeem awards. In order to do that you have to use your funds first, record a video “shouting out OnMyWay”, and then wait 24-48 hours for your money back. AND you can only use it on gas or food, nothing else. AND you can only do one food and one gas offer a week. In order to get my full $400 that’s taking me like 2 years to earn I would have to record 80 videos which would take me over a year to get back. Absolutely not worth it for the consumer.
