Collect Change, Pay Down Student Loans

You have student loans...we all do, and it's the biggest burden in our lives. Committing to 10,15, 25 years of repayment is no joke. ChangEd shortens your repayment and gets you out of debt sooner. The ChangEd app works by helping collect spare change from everyday purchases for additional payments onto your loan, effectively shortening your loan term and even saving you thousands in interest costs. ChangEd aligns with your natural spending, makes small roundups to the next dollar and applies the accumulated change toward your loans.

ChangEd makes transfers to your personal FDIC-insured based on the roundups from your everyday purchases.

Once your ChangEd balance reaches $100, we automatically send a payment to your loan servicer to be applied as an extra payment! Sit back and take years off of your repayment!

**Average users save $30-$50/month in spare change roundups**

**ChangEd charges a simple $1/mo from your ChangEd balance**

**Roundups and savings are automatic! So are the time-and-money saving payments toward your student loans!**

**Contact support@changedapps.com if you have any questions! We’re here to help.**

**Link a second card to analyze for roundups**

Needs work

Jerky Pie

#1 no no for developers across the globe. Do not have a "delete account" button only to have it pop up with an alert to instead email your company. No, I want to delete the account, not talk to a representative of the company in order to do so. Very very bad user interaction. This app needs a ton of work besides that feature. The last time ChangEd took money from my account, there were five different monetary numbers displayed on the app, which I had no idea what any of them were in regards to. On top of that, they took out a different number from my bank account! I canceled right away and asked for a refund within the first few days of seeing the transfer they made. The refund apparently did not include the $1 charge per month the app takes out (which I was unaware of ¯\_(ツ)_/¯). I'm not a stickler about the charge, $1 is nothing - but it's the premise of the situation. I was literally hooked up to their system for maybe a week, and even though the app couldn't even function as promised (on several manners but especially not being able to connect the account to my student loans) they still felt they were worthy enough to keep the $1. Great idea, but apparently the outsourced devs have a ton of work to do before you lend over your money to this service.

Developer Response

Hi there!

Thank you so much for the amazing and detailed feedback. We take feedback seriously and it helps us make ChangEd and even more powerful tool for student loan borrowers everywhere! We are aware of some of the issues you experienced and we would love to address a few of your concerns.

1. Delete account button - We ask that ChangEd members reach out when looking to pause or delete their account to ensure any refunds due are processed accordingly. We get that this isn't the most user-friendly low-touch way to pause or stop service but not getting a refund applied properly is something we never want to happen.

2. Usability - We understand that there are some usability issues that need updating. We're working hard to make sure ChangEd is as easy as possible to use! Our priority is security and functionality to make sure that we're moving your money in the safest and most effective way to help you save on your student loans.

3. $1/mo fee - We charge this from your first transfer and then once a month from the date of your first transfer. We like to allow all members to get a chance to see how the app works and to see how much they can save before we charge anything. This simple $1/month helps ChangEd cover some of the costs of moving money and maintaining members' FDIC-insured ChangEd accounts. This details of this fee are clearly laid out in the Terms of Service that is presented before you sign up.

4.Connecting to your Student Loans - When a ChangEd member enters their student loan details, we verify the account numbers and owners with the loan servicer directly. This ensures that the account is active, has a balance, and payments can be sent to the balance of their loan.


5. Our dev team - Our development is done internally. Our team works super hard to make sure ChangEd is super secure and is saving a member's spare change to pay off their student loans. We're growing our team and hope to have more people on working through some of the issues you experienced.


We hope this answers some of your concerns and we really do appreciate the feedback. Please feel free to reach out to our team directly if you have any other concerns - support@changedapps.com

So far so good

I love watching shark tank and seeing this on the show made me want to try it. I had so many questions and customer service did a big help. I got to understand as they were telling me how the app works. I use my card none stop not cause of getting the change but because I use my debit card on almost anything instead of using cash. Basically all the change that is rounded up it gets taken out of your account. It’s like doing it with cash but easier from a debit or credit card. Dan helped me understand how it works and the basics. Can’t wait to see it go to my loan.

Rounds up whole amounts too

Like a couple of other reviewers, I saw this on Shark Tank and decided to give it a try. Since it’s been a couple of days, I’ve only gathered up $4.50 in spare change, which isn’t bad. So in that aspect, it does exactly what it says on the tin.

However, this is important, it didn’t just round up purchases that were for pennies on the dollar, it added an extra $1 for each purchase that was an even on the dollar amount. Based on the apps description, I would think it only works with uneven transactions and not flat dollar amounts. Something like that should be clarified in the description as I didn’t expect that. I like the concept, but that needs to be addressed.
