Applied for small loan, provided paperwork asked for. I have a good job with long term employment, bank account in good standing, plenty of ability to repay the loan. Submitted all online. Was declined instantly while they send emails saying were working on your loan, you will hear from us soon. But if you log into your account it's already been declined almost immediately. And you won't hear back from them soon or at all. And don't even think of emailing them why you was declined to see if maybe something is wrong or you entered something wrong.

They won't respond back, even though they say they will. And if you sign into your account they will tell you you are eligible to try for another loan immediately after you've been declined. This is a bad company that does not care about customers and doesn't deserve any new ones. I'm reporting them to the BBB, Ohio Attorney General's office, sheriff department, Banking regulators. You've been warned. They will play games with you, and don't give a crap about you.

They told me that they had reimbursed my 555.00, but they have not according to my bank. IF this happens to you get a police report, I didn't. Now I regret that decision. Still waiting for the reimbursement from them.

I recently came in for a loan & I am loving the new procedures. So much easier to get your cash, not to mention safer. No more walking out the door with cash in hand. Paying back the loan is easier now too. I really do love the way things are handled now & hope they stick around!

I'm a single mon with 3 kids. I was told a title loan would qualify me the best so I trusted and received a loan for $2800. The unknown happened and I was laid off 3 weeks later. I called And let them know right away and I stayed in touch with them while I was waiting to receive my unemployment. Literally the day I received my benefits I got my Vehicle repoed. I was told there was nothing I could do unless I paid the full amount of $5000 within 30 days or I lose it. Well they caused me so much heartache and pain and they wouldn’t allow me to give them half and then the other half 2 weeks later. I lost my car because they would rather sell it at a auction than work with the customer. I resent this company for leaving with no car!

I've been with Advance America quite a while with no issues up until now. I fell on hard times and ended up doing an extended payment plan for the $300 I owed, the plan is that they withdraw $75 from your account each pay period. When it came down to my very last payment they charged my account twice so $150 instead of $75. I called them and they refunded $75 all good. So the next day I get an email from them saying that they processed another payment. I look into my account and I was charged yet again.

Now I'm extremely frustrated and upset being that it's the holidays and having a one income as a single parent I can't afford that mistake. So now my account had been charged a total of 3 times with one refund I'm due another refund. I call them and provided the proof that they charged me again they said they will take care of it. NNever got a refund so at the end of my workday I call them. On hold for almost an hour. I finally get through and the young lady hangs up on me while she's researching the issue. By this time their phone lines are closed and I can't get through. So that's where I'm at now. I feel frustrated and a little violated that a company would charge me without my consent. I've reached out through email and no responses or reasoning as to why this is happening.

This is the first time I have ever used Advance America Cash Advance in Roland Oklahoma and I was very pleased with their service and very friendly employees that explained everything very thoroughly and answered all my Questions. I will definitely be using them from now on.

I have always gone to the location in Huntsville Alabama on university drive. Melissa has been a staple there and love that she has treated me like family. If I run late she always waits. I adore this company and the ladies at the store. Please try them if you haven’t already.

I've used this company before, I changed banks and provided the required information. They continue to send automated email asking for information I've already provided. I log on to check the status of the loan and continue to get directed to the apply for a loan page..which I've already done. Never again will I use this company. Shady business! TM **.

The lady was extremely nice, the place was super clean. They play good music, I will pay off my loan and go back. Advance America in Vidor, Texas is the one to go to, they give away free food and water. Thank you Crystal ** for handling everything. You deserve a raise.

After using their service for around a year without incident. Earlier this week my check was sent off after already being paid in full causing multiple overdraft fees from my bank, was contacted days again and told I was owed a refund for the full amount and would be receiving a phone call later in the day... The call never came and the funds have not been recovered... In short do not use, they will screw you over first chance they get.
