Albert: Banking on you Pros
✓ Wow!Let me just start off by saying I was skeptical about this app at first because of linking my bank account, but given that I live on my own and just moved to a new state, I needed to budget my paychecks properly as I was carelessly spending before. I downloaded this app with the intention to get my finances under control but didn’t realize all the benefits. So i downloaded it and payed the monthly fee, and it set up a savings account (rainy day fund) then forgot about it and deleted the app. THREE MONTHS LATER I’m checking my banking app and see that Albert had taken $10 out of my account then looked a little more and had seen they had been periodically taking money out. At first I was lied “WHOA HOLD UP WHAT IS THIS??” So I downloaded Albert again and checked it and it had SAVED UP ALMOST $300!! I was honestly so happy. As someone who had been living paycheck to paycheck and worried if I was gonna be able to pay rent every month because of my careless spending, this app has SAVED ME so much financial anxiety. I even created another savings account in the app for a car AND IT PREDICTS WHEN ILL ACHIEVE THAT GOAL! You can set up “smart savings” for any of the savings account which will take out what you can afford to save, which is a lifesaver! Safe to say I’ll be using this app probably FOREVER!.Version: 5.4.1
✓ Almost PerfectAlbert is a great budgeting app for beginners and or, people who want a reliable “set it and forget it app”. However one of my biggest problems with the app is the cyber security wall that is between you and your connected accounts. I’m satisfied overall about the Genius tool, Savings Goal, time line/auto deposit options. But when I need to replace a card linked to the account, which was only one of two accounts. Because I changed my login information on the bank institution’s website. The linked account on Albert was incorrect, and when I tried updating my login information on Albert I could not get passed the account verification stage. Which caused me to pause most of my savings for about 2-3 weeks. After founding out through their help section, that I had to delete my investment and savings account. Thankfully the money get deposited back into your linked banking institution, but the fact is if cyber security is that important to the overall app. Then their needs to be a dedicated human employee for questions comments and concerns, just to get help quickly on real scenarios that the helpline isn’t really equipped to answer with the article. Other than that I like the short easy to read news articles in very user friendly way updated daily. And the break down of your investment portfolio, with changing from percentages to dollars amounts..Version: 6.2.0✓ Albert: Banking on you Positive Reviews
Albert: Banking on you Cons
✗ Don’t do it!!!!If I could give 0 stars I would. I used this service for a little over a year. After a few overdraft fees I asked the company to change my repayment date bc my direct deposit hits after Albert collect there funds. I explained via text that the repayment has been paid back and I would like to change my repayment date bc the funds aren’t always available on Wednesday when they normally take it. Long story short on Friday they took the same repayment I paid on Wednesday, they made 3 different transactions that caused me 3 overdraft fees. I was told that I could only be refunded for two. After going back and forth and sending screenshots showing that it was an error on their end. I was told I would need something from my bank stating that the overdraft fees came from a Albert because they aren’t sure. But u can clearly see the fees came after the three transactions from Albert posted. This only came after I asked when I’ll receive my refund for the two overdraft fees. Over a $100 in overdraft fees caused by this company and all I get is a sorry! Smh if u wanna throw away money sign up for this service if not run fast as u can. I prefer Earning or Dave!.Version: 7.4.19
✗ Overall disappointingAlbert has been an okay but not great tool. Albert has given me good advice when texting with questions, and the answers are always very thorough and informative. I like the way the savings works, except for the delay to receive withdrawals. However, I’ve been pretty disappointed with the actual budgeting tools. My first issue was that you can’t select biweekly pay, only once or twice a month or weekly. It does a very poor job of detecting income and transactions automatically; when I manually enter information, it’s still confused. I manually added my new twice a month payment schedule and amount, and it listed my next two paychecks as the 31st of this month and 15th of the next and skipped the 15th of this month, making it appear that I have half my usual budget. That’s just an example of the often clunky and inaccurate budgeting tool. It can take days before the budgeting information is updated, even if I refresh my bank account and credit cards. I can only track one of the cards that I use from the same company. While I like the value added services on this app, the primary service is a big let down..Version: 5.5.6✗ Albert: Banking on you Negative Reviews
