“Speed & Urgency of technical Issue responce”

Written on: 14/03/2016 by Cash64 (1 review written)

After making 2 repayment's on a 6 month loan, I was offered an option to apply for a " Top Up ". Having applied for one, I also wanted to alter the loan over 12 months to ease the amount repaid monthly.However an option to extend the loan over 12 months was not presented due to a " technical issue " which is not yet resolved. Taking out a loan of this sort is expensive. We all know that up front & accept the term's. The speed & urgency of the " technical issue " review & result reporting… Read Full Review

“For working families”

Written on: 12/03/2016 by Mireya112 (1 review written)

My review of this company is simple. They are a friendly, helpful and most important a non judgemental company for those who are struggling with everyday life. We are a hard working family who sometimes cannot make the ends of the piece of string meet so this company helps do this to give me and others breathing space. I thank Pounds to Pocket for making my life a little less of an uphill struggle sometimes. … Read Full Review

“Expensive but reliable and fast service”

Written on: 04/03/2016 by Karleyu54 (1 review written)

In case of need I received my money the day I asked, it took me few minutes (twice over couple years). The rate is bit extreme, but when you need money quick, they there, so it's the price for it. Customer service always helpful when you need to change details, even pay dates. I have no experience of missing payment and late payment charges so cannot comment on it. My experience when I borrow amount I know I can repay and keep repaying in time is great, as I know I pay high interest (not… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/01/2016

Took out a loan done so a couple of times in the past no problem. Took loan recently signed all paperwork online. Got a message to confirm they had changed the contract length and the payments. Emailed them straight back to advice that the details were wrong have since tried to contact them on about 6 - 8 times still no response. so now having to take matters further. This is extremely unlawful and a breach on the Consumer Credit Act. Still awaiting reponse. told 48 hours that was nearly… Read Full Review

“I have used Pound To Pocket for a few years now to...”

Written on: 22/12/2015 by Emma3878 (1 review written)

I have used Pound To Pocket for a few years now to help when finances are stretched and I find them to be one of the best on the market, my only grumble would be that I think they need to update there payment processes as on this last loan they have advised they are unable to accept my debit card (just a re-issue of the one I have always used following previous card expiring) and I therefore had to set up a direct debit which caused some difficulty when I wanted to pay the loan of early -… Read Full Review

“Loyalty means nothing to this company”

Written on: 17/12/2015 by Paddy007 (2 reviews written)

Three years with this company, no missed payments, paid full amount back early twice, requested a loan before Christmas for the holidays, account closed, no reasons. the One time of the year a little help is needed to be told your account has been closed with no reason is confusing and depressing. Thankyou for your help in the past, no thanks for the lack of help when I really need it, will not be recommending or using this company in the future… Read Full Review

“Understanding and Knowledgeable”

Written on: 12/12/2015 by MauricioHalsey (1 review written)

Although my query couldn't be arranged and sorted to my request I was explained in a way that made me feel more at ease. I am still worried that although my paydate has now changed to the same day PTP lift my funds it may go out before my salary goes in. I understand this is system issues and not the staff member I chatted with online so I think things could be looked at system wise to take things into effect due to a change at the customers end of things rather than risk defaults due to… Read Full Review

“My Customer Experience”

Written on: 02/11/2015 by Flood77 (1 review written)

I was very happy with the help and professionalism of the agent I was dealing with and also how quickly everything was resolved. I was also made to feel like a customer and not a number whilst not feeling undermined or belittled. I would like to say also that the agent was very thorough with his ID and V and also made sure I was who I said I was. I would recommend that the agent who dealt with my query was followed in doing so similarly by others also. Thanks… Read Full Review

“Quick and efficient”

Written on: 25/10/2015 by Forbesvy168 (1 review written)

The process for applying and receiving your loan is quick and easy, though with the added interest you pay off the bulk of the interest first and the actual loan is a small percentage of each repayment until the final few months. This means that early repayment will still involve paying a lot of the interest back as well, and you won't save as much as some would perhaps like. That said, so long as you can afford each repayment the loans have really helped me out on two separate occasions. Well… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/10/2015 by Damarih226 (1 review written)

I took out a loan with pounds to pocket and paid it off fully with no missed payments, once my loan was fully paid off i decided to apply for a new loam as i was moving into a new property, to which i was declined, this made no sense to me as my circumstances had not changed since i got the last loan and if anything my credit should have improved from making my monthly re payments to pounds to pocket. When i asked a pounds to pocket adviser why this had happened i was told they would provide… Read Full Review
