so far I like it. I really like having the gas prices available on the app. However, as they say, I also know to check the price on the gas pump before continuing with the purchase because prices can change unexpectedly. Unfortunately I got caught once on that. but that was my mistake for not verifying first. I have already saved $10 on 5 fills. I also can locate better quality gas like shell or BP etc easier with this app

It's a good app, until you want to transfer the money directly into your bank account of course. It allows you to exchange/cash out through gift cards which worked. But I don't want the gift cards. They need to fix this. Didn't matter which bank acct, didn't matter how many times to enter and confirm it, nothing allowed me to cash out to my direct bank acct. Thumbs down on that. Makes me not want to use the app at all.

Not great as people say. I got the app through a friend. Used it once for 46 cents per gal cash back. It's now pending for 31 cents cash back. It's something but very deceptive in how much you actually get back. Plus I was supposed to get 15 cents off first fill up...I don't see that. It's pending now and I'll update or delete app after I see what happens. I also notice that if you use it... the cash back drops. Pretty sure upside is gaining more than they claim. Contracts don't change that fast
