Here are just a few FAQ’s and Answers

*What are LoanCreds? LoanCreds are the rewards you earn for the tasks you complete on the Gradible platform. LoanCreds can be redeemed for direct payments toward your student loans. 10 LoanCreds are equivalent to $1 in debt repayment. You must redeem at least 100 LoanCreds at a time.

*Who is eligible to join Gradible? Anybody who has student debt (public or private), including people currently in school or taking time off from a program, can join Gradible.

*How much can I earn? Users average between $10-$25 per hour on the site, depending on their speed of completion, task selection, and quality of work. Several top performers earn more than $500 per month.

*What information do you need to make a payment on my behalf? To make a loan payment on your behalf, they need your loan service provider’s name, your full name, your loan account number, and birthdate.

*How long does it take for the credits to post to my student loan account? Payments can often be complete in under a week but can take up to 3 weeks.

(Thanks, Sylvia!)

    Anyone have any experience with this? πŸ™‚

    • Meg

      I was wondering the same thing. Would like some input.

      • Nicole aka Cola

        Ugh so I missed out on the sign-up, but maybe a blessing in disguise? I did some diligence on them anyway… so yea, it looks like Gradible got sued a few months ago by GradSave (another company) for copyright infringement. Gradible as it turns out is owned by Swychd, I think that is an umbrella company. Glad I kinda missed out on the sign ups, no telling what information they’ll be selling…

          PS: thanks for the articles Collin, always appreciative of the deals you blog about

          • Lizzie

            Thanks for the info- definitely interesting to read

    Hi Collin,
    Your post says college students and grads, but the page the link leads to says US GRADUATES only. I’m two terms from graduation, and this would be awesome…is it only for graduates?

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Hi! According to their FAQ section, anybody who has student debt, including people currently in school, can join Gradible.

      • Chassity Antoinette

        Thank you so much! It’s worth checking out

        • nicolegammeter

          You’re welcome! πŸ™‚

  3. Kele B

    This came at the perfect time. I just had my loan payments lowered and would love to be able to chip more away from them with this program! Thank you!

  4. Rebecca

    keep getting a 504 error once i get logged in. Keeps saying it is taking too long

    • Kristie

      I am getting the same error.

    • Megan

      Me too…I thought it was because I was uploading 12K pictures to Amazon. lol

  5. Megan

    Although this website appears to be based in United States there are other countries involved and you should review this information carefully and decide if it is as you expect.This webite is very new , and as such doesn’t have an online reputation yet. As with all new businesses , we suggest that you take care and if necessary get in contact with the owners before placing an order of value.

    Free email addresses have been used in the setup of this website. This is not necesarily worrying, depending on the site. For online shops, this can be a sign that the site has some risk

    The website has been newly registered with a short life expectancy, which follows the pattern used by many fraudulent and fake selling websites. Please be vigilant and take extra care before providing any payment information.

  6. Lisa

    Is this legit? Sounds too good to be true.

    • jeremy

      Its a company that used to be known as “Gradsavers Inc”…its not a ‘new’ company

  7. Megan

    Please do your research before posting. As this doesn’t look legitimate

    • Brooke

      She has this blog to post things as she sees fit. It’s your job to decide if you think these offers, sites, programs, etc are something you are interested in and trust yourself. It’s YOUR responsibility to do YOUR research before deciding to sign YOURSELF up or purchase something.

    • meg

      Don’t be rude! Nobody is forcing you to do this. If you don’t feel its legitimate then just move on.

      • Megan

        Please see my posts later. Just trying to get people to look at it and see if they should really give their information to this company. Not a lot of things are safe in this world and I wasn’t being rude. Just posting to maybe help someone out.

  8. Kris

    Jeremy makes an excellent point. The company has changed its name, and all reviews for the former website appear legitimate. I am sick of people criticizing Collin. She does a great job of checking things out for us. Even if by some chance this is not legitimate, I am sure she did research before posting it. How dare any of you be critical of someone who is wholeheartedly trying to help you? I do not like the implication that Collin is anything less then careful. Cut it out or find another site.

    • Anna

      totally agree with you! Collin does an awesome job! I know I myself, my kids and close friends are extremely grateful for all her time and effort she puts into this site.

    • Lilia

      You need to chill out .

    • Alicia

      Thanks

    • Jennifer

      I don’t think Megan was being critical of or criticizing Collin. She merely stated a well-thought-out cautionary message, designed to help everyone think about the information they give out.

  9. Kim

    Agreed – looks shady. The facebook page has some posts from unhappy users. I’m a long time reader and usually trust deals on Hip2Save, this one not so much.

    • Stirring Notions

      I am an active user and have earned money from several tasks that have been credited to my loans. Every company is going to have some unhappy users, but I have had no issues!

  10. Rachel

    I agree, Kris. I think that it’s really OUR responsibility to do the research and be responsible for our own choices. Collin helps us out A LOT and finds us opportunities that we would probably NOT find on our own. If you don’t want to participate in something – don’t. No one is twisting your arm….

    • Kris

      Rachel, those are good points too. As for the poster who thinks I need to chill out, i’d love to, but I get tired of seeing the criticism. Collin has saved my family more money than I ever thought possible, and I am so grateful.

      • Rachel

        Me, too! I’m on here every day and LOVE the deals she posts. Some I take advantage of; others I don’t. No need to chill out πŸ˜‰

      • Daisy

        That’s nice of you to be grateful, but no reason to judge other people for being skeptical. Collin posts about awesome deals that she hears about from her sources as well as many of us hip2savers. That doesn’t mean that she’s never posted anything that hasn’t worked out perfectly. So yes, people are allowed to post about their hesitation. If you don’t like it, don’t read it.

        • J

          I think people were just asking if this was legitimate..with no disrespect to Collin. I know when I saw the name of the company I wondered the same thing, not because Collin wouldn’t have done her research, but because I haven’t ever heard of this site. In any event..thank you Collin for all that you do for us!

  11. Megan

    I am just trying to put awareness out there as some people don’t check. I love all the work this lady puts into her blog, but in this world there are a lot of ppl that try to scam. If there is something that is fishy maybe ask then person who sent this to you for some additional info or ask about their experience. A lot of us don’t know that this company changed their name. With this I think a little more info is needed just so were all safe.

    • Kris

      Megan, you are right. A lot of people don’t check, and many companies are shady. I do apologize for how I stated my comment. It wasn’t fair to you. I’m just frustrated with people picking at Collin. And that’s not your fault.

      • Megan

        Thank you Kris. I did find this companies facebook page with more people reviewing it to be a positive thing. I didn’t mean to sound like I was criticizing Collin. She saves me a lot of money, especially on diapers:). With something as big as school loans I think it’s worth finding more information out and relaying it to your followers. Especially since the company is asking for private information such as account number for your loan and birthdate. With them changing the company name and when you research it there is only three reviews and when you search for scams it says it’s based out of the UK and US. It is just kind of fishy. But I guess that’s what we’re all here for to research it more and decide for ourselves.

        • Chantal

          When I signed up, and redeemed the $10, it only asked for account number, name, and loan holder. I didn’t see anything for birth date. Did it ask you for your birth date? I’m hoping this is legit but skeptical too.

        • Kris

          Sounds like the name change is doing more harm than good for them! I’m also saving on diapers thanks to Hip πŸ˜„

          • Megan

            Yes that’s why I started following was for the diaper sales she finds!! I love them! Especially the last one at target when they were seven to eight cents a diaper!!!

  12. Michelle

    I feel a little worried about giving them my account number. It seems like someone could use that to get confidential information like my SS number. Not sure I am ready to release that information with the limited amount of information I have about this company. It’s a compelling idea though!

    • Jennifer

      Me too, considering a couple of my account numbers ARE my social security number… :-/

  13. jessica

    Ugh, got on the waiting list; Due to an overwhelming increase in the number of the graduates on the platform, and to ensure there are enough tasks to go around, we are currently pausing new sign ups to Gradible.

  14. Judy Trac

    Could use this for pharmacy school
