Ratings and Reviews
Good app, mostly decent lender
This app is okay, I wish it allowed for changing auto pay information without calling in to speak to someone. Their lines of credit offer access through a credit card, with decent interest rates sourced from multiple lenders for different cards/lines of credit, but all payments are made through the Upgrade App. More a lender complaint than an app complaint, when I sold my car and leased a replacement it caused a 50 point credit score hit due to swapping a nearly paid off car with a 100% credit utilization car lease amount. Lesson learned, the utilization basically stays at 100% for the entire lease, which is never “paid off” like a loan. But Upgrade reacted to my credit score dive by immediately lowering my line of credit limits to match my available balances, and did this a few times over several months, repeatedly chain-reacting to their own snowballing of hits to my credit score, because then their lines of credit perpetually showed as 100% credit utilization, no matter how much I paid down the balance each month. My credit score hasn’t recovered, so I look forward to closing out these lines. :/
Was nice to work with
I used Upgrade from approximately 2017 to the end of 2021. Whenever I needed help I was typically able to get through to customer service, I appreciated that their customer service spoke very clear English without foreign accents. That is not intended to offend anybody, but some people struggle to clearly understand if accents are too thick. Anyways, during 2020 as a business owner we certainly felt the squeeze and Upgrade was there to offer us numerous options to reduce our payments to help us through tough times. Through all of it we were able to complete our loan with a 100% payment history as well as gain great credit benefits for the service we received. Ultimately, if you take a loan for the right reason and can make more money from it than the interest your paying your making a good decision, but life sometimes needs money for things that do not make any returns, but either way, if you run into trouble this lender may be able not work with you so it’s a good choice if you need a loan.
Incompetent customer service
I held a live chat with Stephanie on 9/13 through the app as I had added a new checking account for my auto pay but it wouldn’t let me select it as the default account and I’m in the process of closing the old account. She told me it was all set up with the new account and that my old account had been deactivated. She lied. On 9/17 I checked the app and it still looked like the payment was coming out of the old account. I live chatted again with Rachel who told me once you add a new account the old account is deactivated but since the payment had already started processing out of my old account this too was a lie. Finally I called and talked to a rep I did not catch his name and while he was nice and disabled my auto pay for me (so far the only rep to actually do anything). I was told that they would not reimburse me for any fees my old bank would charge me even though I would only be charged those fees because of their mistake. He double checked to see if he could get me reimbursement if I am charged NSF fees (hopefully I won’t because as soon as I found out about their screw up I started a transfer from my new account to my old account) and was told a firm no that they would not. This is egregious to admit they are the cause but then make no amends for their mistake is unbelievable to me. Customer service is dead.
