Build Credit & Savings - Self Pros

0-100 real quick lolI started off with nothing no credit never owned a credit card but somehow I guess bc of that I started with a 527. I was just like “dude I’m not doing this it’s gonna take too long” my fiancé who has passed away but he was the one who forced me to download SELF. So he was showing me the ropes and within 3 months of paying ON TIME and I have it set up to automatic payments so I don’t forget but I was so excited I saw 590. But I wanted that 6. Sure enough about 3 months later of continual making my payments without doing it bc I have it set to take $25 out automatically every month and I had a 647!!!! When he passed away in September I wanted to throw it away but why? He helped me build my credit and I am in debt to him forever. After 6 months of not looking I check it today just to see what would happen after getting increases and paying them off. I have a 704!!!!! I wish I could post pictures on here but I wouldn’t recommend anything but SELF if you are a beginner. I have capital ones sending me cards now saying I’m approved for car loans like every other freaking day, mastercards, everything. But I just want to say thank you Matt!!!! 😇 up above and a thank you to SELF for helping my credit score grow so much 🖤 thank you guys. All they want to see is CONSISTENCY!!!.ChayChay89Version: 2.11.0

Definitely helping my creditI spent most of my life not really understanding credit, how it was calculated, and how valuable it is. I made some poor choices over the years and it caused me to have terrible credit simply because I was too ignorant to care of the effects of poor credit. As I got older I started to see these effects on my life and decided to make a change. But there were fewer opportunities for me because of my history. This lead me to searching fir secured credit cards in order to try to build credit over time. I was introduced to Self by my wife who already had started a credit builder account. It seemed like an easy way to save money and build credit so I started one of my own. I’m happy to say that my credit score is slowly building and is looking more positive every month. I was just approved for a unsecured credit card from another lender - the balance is low - but it’s an improvement on the rejections I got from before. I’m gonna keep doing Self because it’s easy and it actually help. Just pay on time and things will start looking up for you. It just takes time..DrakeShinVersion: 2.11.0

Build Credit & Savings - Self Cons

A Da** ScamSelf has a beautiful proposal, a savings account that will also build your credit (for a small fee of course) they kept trying to incite me into a credit card account but I’m always skeptic of those. I finished my self loan earlier than scheduled because I need the funds from my account to go towards a car down payment, but I didn’t want to close the account with a balance. Self gives two payout options, immediate direct deposit and a check in the mail. I selected the direct deposit and waited 3 days just for them to tell me I needed to (confirm my identification) send them a picture of my if and bank statements. They said the process would take another 3 days to complete. What got me was the bold letters at the bottom stating if the process was not completed in 15 days they’d keep my money. I was outraged because not only did they decide to verify my as I’m closing my account, we were 7 business days deep in the interaction because they weren’t responding in a timely matter. It’s now been 13 business days and I’m yet to get a response on my identity conformation. As far as helping clean my credit score up, that was done. But don’t download this app expecting your money back after doing research there’s a Reddit community of people just waiting for their money back. Uber-disappointed.Salah GaddyVersion: 2.17.0

StressfulAuto-pay doesn’t work properly. I have my account set to be charged on the first of the month. I received an email saying that payment WAS received that day. Today, the sixth, I get an email that they attempted to charge my account again and that the payment didn’t go through. I look through my Self and bank history and they never charged me on the first. So I had received a false email. I now have delinquent charges due to a faulty auto-pay and emailing system. I liked this app until I referred my husband, that’s when I started having issues. My credit score did go up 40 points, but ultimately I know that it doesn’t matter because the same app is going to drop my credit score back down due to the faulty system. We live paycheck to paycheck and I specifically budget for this app. So the fact that the autopay doesn’t work really screws me over. I will not be using this app again once the loan is paid off. And I pray that I don’t get scammed out of my return like other people. I will be taking up dog-sitting jobs to try to pay off this loan faster because I don’t want to lose sleep over something that should be helping me. DO NOT SIGN UP FOR SELF! DO NOT REFER PEOPLE. It will end up hurting you if you don’t notice the auto-pay not going through! Don’t rely on the email, you’ll have to constantly be checking the app! The 5 star reviews are also fake, they literally have an employee do 3 fake ones a day..DaskalayseVersion: 3.9.1
