Not there when you need it most
There are times when my main accounts get SO low (we’re in the middle of a pandemic) that and extra $20 offered by FM would make all the difference in the world. It could feed us and allow us a couple of dollars of gas. In my circumstance,only reason for accessing apps such as float Me is to get that receive and that $20 last a couple of days until my scheduled payday. With the restrictions shown on the app with regard to bank balances, that check to see if you have money in your account or not, will automatically deny your request for a $20 float. The irony is that if I HAD money in my bank account, the necessity to use Float Me wouldn’t exist. As a frequent user, Float Me needs to update their rules in order to help those of us who do not currently have money in their account for a couple of days until payday. We are struggling out here and that $20 could and does keep us from struggling or literally being hungry. My opinion? A bank balance containing cash makes using Float Me rather redundant. This rule should be rethought. This app is useless if a zero balance is the determining factor Thanks for taking the time to read my opinion.

Hi Daphne, thank you so much for your valuable feedback! We’ve lowered the required bank balance to -$20 to request a Float. If you have any more feedback or concerns, we’d love to hear it at floatme.zendesk.com; we’re always looking for ways to improve
I had closed my account because I couldn’t get a hold of anyone because I had switched to a new bank account. I was receiving money into my new account from Float Me but about a week ago I was told there were no deposits from my payroll found in my account. By this time I was already on two deposits into the new account and the Friday in the same week would have been my third deposit. I didn’t understand why I could receive floats in my new account but when I tried to take another out they couldn’t find new deposits from my payroll there was already two deposits from them. That same week would have been three reoccurring deposits. For the record, $1.99 was taken out of my bank account for Float Me Services’s can my account be unblocked? I paid already and cannot use the service.

Good in a pinch for small needs, but the fee needs to GO
I only receive $20, I wish it was more but it’s better than nothing, right? I’d give it 5 stars if that were the case, and also they charge $4 for an instant float, which I think is a pretty steep charge for $20. $2 would be sufficient, I feel like it’s kind of taking advantage of people who really need the cash, especially in the COVID era. I will keep using it though, and so will people like me, which is what this company knows, which is why they charge the steep fee. I’f they raised it to $6 people would still use it, unfortunately, because people like me really do need emergency cash. Maybe I should start my own similar business and only charge $1 for instant cash, or utilize other means to get the instant cash, like completing a survey, or completing certain tasks or what not. Check on me in a year, I may just be rich with my fantastic ideas!! Until then, I will still be getting price gouged on these sites 🙁

Hi Melissa, thank you for your feedback! We unfortunately are not able to find any users or support requests matching this name. The FloatMe membership provides free Standard Floats. In addition, members can also choose to use Instant Floats; which have a small transaction fee due to the higher transaction costs.
