Ratings and Reviews
I have nothing but positive things to say about Varo. I absolutely love this bank!! They are there for the people who literally live from paycheck to paycheck and cover for me if the need be. Every other bank I had stole so much of my money from me!! It actually sickens me to calculate the expenses that they sucked from me in overdrafts and even extra overdraft fees on top of the $35 every single time I needed them to be there for as a valued customer who banked with them for years. Not once in 10 years did they help me. The worst part is I now know how badly they treated me by holding my money for weeks at a time holding back my government benefits every month for 10 years. It’s unethical and wrong to treat anyone that way charge me an overdraft fee when you have had my money when I needed it most and charged me over and over and over the figure comes up to several thousand dollars when I actually saw what they had so unfairly done to me by switching to Varo holy cow praise Jesus they have treated me more than fair and I will always give VARO praise. Thank goodness you showed me what the old bank had been doing to me I am so glad I switched to Varo they are the best bank and their customer service over the phone is outstanding. Like I said in the beginning I have nothing but praise to say about this bank Varo is the best bank I ever had!!!! VARO ROCkS
Great banking, non-existent customer service
I’ve been a member of Varo for 2 years, and have to say that since it’s become Varo Bank, getting through to customer service seems impossible.
With the old Varo, I had nothing but excellent customer service. They always answered the calls or emails. I’ve been trying to get through to customer service for a week now, but no luck 😑
I start calling each morning at 8:00 when they open for business. There’s no wait time mentioned then, but no one answers. I’ll wait for an hour, then am told by the automated system that the wait time is less than 15 minutes. Um, no. It’s more like an hour. I don’t stay on beyond that. When called after 10:00 am, the estimated wait time is “ greater than 60 minutes “. Ugh. I just want to find out some important ( to me) information about a direct deposit that seems to be floating around in my old account. Emails aren’t answered either.
Their inefficiency has become my problem, and there’s no way to get in touch.
I hope someone from Varo bank reads this and makes it right. I don’t like being disappointed in Varo!

We’re very sorry for the long hold times recently. We’re currently experiencing extremely high volumes. We understand the importance of contacting customer support and are eager to assist with your request. We appreciate your patience during this time. Please remain on the line or contact us at email@example.com!
It doesn’t make sense that you have to make 1,000 dollars within 30 days in order to use the advance feature which lets you borrow money until pay day but if I was making 1,000 a week or could have it within 30 days I wouldn’t be borrowing money from you all that really makes the feature pointless to those who really need it it doesn’t make sense nor does it seem fair especially to a loyal customer who’s been with you all for a while and never let my account go into the negative until I recently was told I had to make 1,000 within 30 days to even be qualified for an advance. I really thought about just closing my account because of that simple inconvenience being that it was the only reason I had started with Varo and because I could save more with having a saving account, but many other apps have the same feature at this point and would be reasonable when it comes to borrowing money until payday. Also I’ve been with you all since the first varo app that was out all the way up until the new app so I feel as if there should at least a membership where if you’ve been so long and have direct deposit set up then you should qualify it’s not like it’s not already setup where you all will receive your money soon as it hits the account so it’s something to put into consideration not only for me a loyal customer but for the rest of your customers in general. Thank you
