Round Up Rewards
By Seashells Technologies Inc.
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Round up spare change and earn exclusive (15%) rewards at your favorite stores!
With Round Up Rewards you save and earn rewards on on every purchase, at every location, using any credit or debit card - and there is no effort required after sign up. You then choose where you want to spend your savings and rewards (180+ options to choose from). Rewards are instantly redeemable right from your phone (in-store or online).
Using round up savings, Round Up Rewards gives you a fun and automatic way to save money. Every time you use your credit or debit card we automatically "round up" your transaction to the next dollar and set aside the spare change for you (ex. buy a coffee for $2.20; we round it up to $3 and set aside $0.80 for you). In addition to the money you save, Seashells gives you a 15% bonus (free money!).

Amazing app... WHEN IT WORKS
Had this app for about two weeks, and gave it a shot despite the poor reviews. Saved up enough money in spare change to redeem for a $20 eBay card. Got my eBay card instantly through the app, spent all the money, no problem. This is where all the hassle comes in. At first when I'd open the iPhone app, I'd constantly have to log back in a add my bank account info over and over again. A small hassle, but I got over it because, hey it was helping me save money. Today I try to log in with my email address. Can't log in. I try "forgot password" and I'm told my email account isn't in their system. How is that possible if I'm still constantly receiving emails from them? Couldn't log in through Facebook, couldn't log in through Google, apparently my account has been completely closed. Good thing it was closed right before they took $20 out of my account towards my next reward. Fantastic idea, terrible app and website. I honestly don't trust Seashells anymore. Try Qapital instead people.
This app was amazing and I've been using it for months. Until recently, the app kept asking me to log in & update my transfer account. I thought it was a glitch, but decided to request a gift card for a purchase I wanted to make. The app said it's taking a bit longer to process, so I contacted customer service. They let me know that they are transitioning to a different app called "Shop Seashells," and "issued a return," which will process in 2-3 business days. I waited & asked multiple times, inquiring where those and my other funds will go."The refund will go to the account on file in 2-3 business days." No answer on where my other funds will go. I'm well past 3 business days and they still haven't answered about my other funds. Now I can't even log into the account and they don't have a site I can just log onto on the web. Their customer service is horrible and now my money is in limbo.
Sounds like a great deal, right? Until they charge your credit card then lock you out of your account so you can't redeem rewards.
The last two times I tried to redeem my rewards for gift cards, I was locked out of my account. It took support about a week to let me access my account, and that happened ONLY after I threatened to do a credit card chargeback. When I got back into my account, I tried again to redeem for a gift card, and I got the message "Your card's taking longer than usual to process. Please contact support." And guess what? I was locked out of my account AGAIN with $60 redeemable. Support is ignoring me now.
Stay away unless you want them taking your money then locking you out of your account.
