Customer Reviews

  • Great app and services but...

    by nickE10mm

    ...small annoyance. There is no way to clear the alert flag and no setting to turn it off. Annoying.

  • Awesome app!

    by Faith Ellis

    I love this app! It's really useful, especially for my allowance! H&R Block did an awesome job here :D

  • New Update

    by Michonne88

    Check to card does not work after the new update.

  • Check to card crashes app

    by Hotrodhayley

    The app is great other than that with this most recent update, when I do check to card, after taking a photo of the front of my check, the app will close itself out. Its also telling me I have a notification on my home screen but when I open the app it doesn't go away or show me any notifications. Other than that, it's a great app and very convenient!

  • Such a great app!

    by Yarilix

    If you are using the H&R Bank & The Emerald card, this is the right app for you. It works for me everywhere and all the time.

  • Nice job H&R Block!

  • Irritating

    Getting really old having to update almost every time I use this app.

  • Deposit

    by Chytealah

    This update is just awful! I cant even do "check to card" any longer. Please go back to what you guys had before, I atleast could get my money before this.

  • Log in issues

    by Cj83@yahoo

    Keeps telling me "ERROR" failure to log in due to communication problem. Fix app please.

  • Dissapointed

    by PocahontasJoy

    This app used to work really well until they updated it. Now every time you click on the check to card button, the thinking wheel keeps spinning and it doesn't load. If you eventually get in, it will not read the check properly no matter how much lighting you use. This app has turned into junk. They've lost my trust and I'm very dissapointed.

  • Check to card not working

    by Arisfgtcs

    Check to card not working.

  • Disappointed

    by Ken60cc

    App freezes when I use to check to card. Been a HRBB customer for three years. They've lost my confidence right before tax season.

  • New update not working at all

    by Rebelmama86

    Won't let me log in. Keeps telling me syntax error... Please fix this

  • Check to card

    by LambV

    What that hell is going on?! The check to card feature worked perfectly the first two times I did it and now it gives me this annoying message about not being able to read my check. Yea under perfect lighting, sure. If it wasn't for that glitch this app would be perfect. Can this be fixed? Very inconvenient.

  • New update not working at all

    by Ironsloth_

    Won't login. Error pops up, says "SYNTAX ERROR-Unable to parse JSON string". Just gonna have to use the clumsy website from Safari.

  • Check to card

    by Believe Sunshine

    Check to card button doesn't work. The thinking wheel just keeps spinning and the proper screens to photograph the check never opens. I hope it's fixed today, would be a shame to not be able to load card with your paycheck.

  • Check to card does not work!

    by Goodbella

    Only reason I downloaded the ap, and the check to card will not even open! What a joke.

  • Bad app

    by Kittycat20021965

    Check to card does not work still not working after 4days

  • Check to card not working !

    by Hiejbds

  • Check to card broken

    by Ben 9551111111

    Seriously, this is the only reason I have this app. And it doesn't work. It works for a while then the app is updated and it stops working. Getting sick of it.

  • Check to card.

    by Thedude9294729

    Can not send check to card. Saying amount on app is different than on check.

  • Mandatory Update Ridiculous!

    by Devil/Saint

    Still demanding I update after I've updated. This does this every time you have a mandatory update. At this point this app is useless!

  • Can't do Check to card

    by Jeremymcateer

    I used the check to card feature for the first few months with no trouble and no complaints but for the last month and a half I have not been able to use it at all. So annoyed!!! I've tried to contact customer service and they only told me to uninstall it and reinstall it. Still no fix for it yet.

  • Frustrated

    by NW4724

    I've had this card for years, excited when check to card came out. After the recent update I'm now having Tons of problems. Do not use this app or get the card if you want it for check to card loads!

  • Inconsistent with no customer support

    by Hollywafa

    Like a few other reviewers, I have had the same problem with the check to card function saying the amount on the check does not match the amount entered in the app. I called customer service and they created a case to deal with the problem, in 3-5 business days, first off that time frame is unacceptable and they claim to have sent an email detailing the problem, which they did not, there is no submitting the check for further review or confirmation. in order for this problem to be resolved they need some form of secondary review by human eyes. This has only happened to one check out of dozens of successful check to card transactions. Inconsistency is a pain in the...wasting hours of my time on the phone to no avail. Fix it blockheads

  • Awful

    by ForevaHisLadi

    App doesn't work! Well the check deposit doesn't.... Yuck awful
