  • Fix the app!

    By Alb3rt0000
    I actually like this bank I really only use it for savings because of the 2.00%APY which I love. But what I don’t love is when the app randomly stop working or when I close it and open it again and it shows a $0 balance!! I hate when it dies that scares me every time!! PLEASE FIX!! I always have to close the app wait a minute and reopen it and everything is working again.
  • Beautiful App, Flimsy Card

    Would definitely make Empower my primary bank account but the card is super flimsy, reminds me of a prepaid phone card. Closing the App should load the Home Screen upon opening but this App opens up last screen before closing. Not best UX/UI
  • Great All-in-One Solution! 👌

    Analyze the features, deposit the savings! Talk about simplified life. Financials gathered into one place. No fees! Cashback on purchases, High-rate savings... no minimum. Cash deposits at local ATM* 💰 Truly fee-less. No surprises 👀🧐🤔. Discipline and a strategic approach would improve anyone’s credit. Empower! 👍
  • Can’t add an authorized user for checking account

    If you’re married stay away from this bank until they get their act together and join the rest of the world with the ability to add an authorized user to share a checking and savings account with. It’s mind boggling this isn’t standard and makes me question the entire platform and their decision making as a bank as a whole. I emailed customer support and their solution was to either share the one card (which is laughable) or one person uses the card and the other only makes digital purchases. News flash: not everyone lives in homeless central San Francisco and not everywhere accepts digital purchases yet.

    I’m so excited to get my card in the mail. So many banks have turned me down and never had good rewards programs for their customers. Now I have found Empower! I’m so excited they reward their customers. Awesome job!

  • Extremely well designed in so many ways

    Super neat and shiny. The sign up process was absolutely flawless, and I commend the developers of this exceptionally tight user experience. I loved the way they got all the text/email verifications out of the way using the same data input screen. I enjoy trying out new banking products, and Empower really has a chance of sticking with me. You either tend to love it from the start or it fades right away and sits. Too many products focus on being your "one and only" except don't provide convenient cash deposit access and lack the je ne sais quoi of being able to pull out a REAL FRICKIN' BANKCARD of an established, historical institution i.e. a grown-up bank. This notion cannot fade quick enough as commercial institutions are utterly glacial implementing new technologies and tend to also be so buggy in basic operation. Empower is more open-ended as to whether you want to use it as a financial product or a banking product. It left an initial impression on me that almost matched the wow factor of Square Cash. I wish they had instant debit card funding instead of instant funding via ACH. The reason is that I like immediately accurate balances without delay. I appreciated being able to set up Apple Pay from the start too. Wonderful job, and if this is the beginning of the product, I can't wait to see it as it evolves.
