U-Promise UpromiseUpromise by Sallie Mae U-Promise - Unreliable - Con-Artist - Incompetent Boston Massachusetts
This is an unusual rip-off by U-Promise! It is also VERY clever.
I signed up a few years ago for E-Rewards which is a division of U-Promise. I have taken SEVERAL surveys over the years in exchange for payment. When I first signed up, I was given .50 on the dollar to take surveys on-line in my spare time. When I have a few dollars saved up, I would then transfer my Reward Dollars from E-Rewards to U-Promise and then receive a check in approximately 4 weeks. This is barely acceptable but tolerated as 4 weeks is not an inordinate time to wait for a check.
Unfortunately, now U-Promise is only rewarding me approximately .40 on the dollar and this is how it works:
First, you request your reward dollars be transferred to your U-Promise Account. This takes approximately 5 to 6 weeks. Then, your U-Promise account lists your money as "Pending". This takes another 8 - 10 weeks, then you can request a check which takes another 8 - 10 weeks!!! Seriously??? As of today, March 3, 2014, my money has been pending since December 5, 2013!!! When I called U-Promise to ask about this, there is no one there that is from the United States, even though Sallie Mae is an American program. The gentleman with a heavy accent tells me that he is escalating my matter which will take another 30 days!!! Really???
U-Promise, this is such a dirty, low down and underhanded way to treat your customers who are working hard and giving your money for nothing!!!
If this is not a Rip-Off, I don't know what is.
Anyone else out there experiencing the same thing?
