    Great idea, love the interest rates! I just am unsure how I feel about the orange brand color. Hopefully I don’t need to have an orange debit card forever. :)

    I got this app to help kind of keep track of money and what not, blah blah blah I linked my bank to the app and the numbers have been frozen ever sense I got it, it never updates or syncs. So I try to go and delete my bank for the app and it doesn’t delete. I’ve been trying to delete my bank for over a couple days and it always says cannot connect to server. I finally just went in a tried to delete my account period and it won’t delete my account even. When I go and try to contact there support they never answer. Soo just in the case that empower sees my review..... you better get back to me and figure this crap out. It’s sketchy when you link personal info like bank accounts to an app and the app won’t let me delete it.

    Empower is one of the most worthless and quite frankly, utterly useless “financial/banking services” I have ever encountered. Thankfully my unfortunate mistake of signing up with Empower; will be other people’s gain. I have no problem describing what a pathetic joke the feeble attempt at customer service Empower haphazardly provides to it customers. I can imagine how it would be nothing less than a total embarrassment if I had to admit to people that I worked at or was in any associated with such a deplorable and disheveled wreck of a company that Empower truly is. Seriously. I would say that perhaps Empower can bilk their investors out of more money so that their totally incompetent robot customer service staff could be trained on what “customer service” actually means. Alas, I believe that would just be an exercise in futility. I simply cannot wait to be the first person in line to attend the party that will be held upon the news of this company’s inevitable, and 100% deserved, abject failure. I can hardly contain my glee because the thoughts of Empower being dissolved into total non-existence is a delight of which I will always be ready to enjoy. Always. TL;DR - EMPOWER AND ITS USELESS ROBOT CUSTOMER SERVICE STAFF ARE GARBAGE - JUST LIKE THEIR “PRODUCT”. STAY AWAY FROM THIS TOTAL MONEY STEALING SCAM!!!

    I JUST Downloaded this app! I saw an ad for it on instagram and I thought it looked cool. I have been trying to budget better and keep track of my spending and this app made it so freaking easy! No secret fees, no bullsh*t. I’ve only had it one day but it’s dope. For someone who can’t get a bank account this is a great option!
  • Empower will tie your money up

    I initiated a transfer through Empower on April 9th. The transfer was supposed to take money from my Chase bank and deposit it into my Empower Savings account. The funds were withdrawn from Chase on April 11th. It is now April 16th and the funds have still not arrived and all they can tell me is that Chase dictates how long it takes. B.S. I successfully transferred money from another bank to Empower and when I tried to transfer out of Empower, it tells me “insufficient balance in source account” no one seems to be able to help and all I get is automated responses. Worst service ever. Stay away from Empower
