Ratings and Reviews
Loving my account, but one dislike...
I am very happy with 99% of Varo, from account to Customer service, but my one dislike is that when I open the app, I find it so confusing seeing all of my linked accounts, and needing to really double check how much money is actually in my Varo account and not a total amount between all of my banks... I kind of primarily open the Varo app to double check my Varo balance prior to using my Varo card, and certainly can’t make any purchases using the amount available between each of my linked accounts, so I personally feel like that feature should be set further in the background and not the main attraction when you open the app. I absolutely do like having the ability to see everything together at a glance, but I truly hate it being so difficult to zone in on the Varo account, which is the major reason why you would open the app instead of opening the app for your other accounts, no?? It would be nice if maybe you could be able to customize your home screen to focus on what’s most important to each person.... Not a big enough reason to make me dislike the bank account, but just something that irks me about the app itself...
Very poor customer service and responses.
I had some unauthorized charges to my account. My debit card was stopped and a new one was to be issued. It’s has been 3 weeks and counting and i still have not received a replacement card. In the meantime I am unable to purchase anything and all my monthly bills tied to the old debit card are “bouncing”. When I call customer service I’m being told that to get a replacement for the replacement they have to cancel the originally replacement and issue another card which will take another 3-5 business days. That’s four weeks to get a replacement card and no way to pay my bills.
I get a response from developers that my address may not have been correct or the card may have got lost in the mail. BULL! I received a letter from Varo concerning the investigation of the unauthorized charges. Mind you I reported to the bank on April 23, 2019 and the letter was dated May 3, 2019. The letter had no problems getting to me. Where is the replacement debit card? I called Varo reporting not receiving the card by the date promised. Now I have to wait another 3-5 business days for an “expedited” replacement card. Meanwhile I still have no access to my money in order to pay my bills or anything else. I continue to receive the standard response from customer service of “sorry for your inconvenience but there is nothing we can do other than make you wait.”

CONVENIENT, BUT STILL NEEDS A TON OF WORK!!!
I just so happened to find Varo in app store & tried it out. After my acct was open & I received my card, I quickly realized just how difficult it is to get money into the darn account other than Direct Deposit! The most frustrating part is that you can link your other bank accts to Varo acct (AWESOME RIGHT??!! WRONG!!!) It's almost IMPOSSIBLE!!! They put you through 10 steps that you have to keep watching or coming back to, but don't wait too long because then you have to start all over!!! VERYYYYYY hard to tell what company to select because they have too many options for each Bank!! EX: Capital One, my credit card acct SHOULD EASILY CONNECT through the "Capital One Credit Cards" option, you'd think that's simple enough to assume it's correct...??!! Right??? NOPE!!!! GOOD LUCK!!! No matter how many times I tried to get it connected, no matter how many different Capital One options I tried to look it through... IT JUST DOESN'T WORK!!!!! I went through TWO days worth of trying LITERALLY, just to get my Bank Of America checking acct linked!!! It's ssooooo frustrating!! They absolutely NEED to make their app/website options EASIER AND PEOPLE FRIENDLY... If they can do that, I'm sure Varo will be around for a long time!!!
PS: and get a better Customer Service department!
