  • Designed to prevent reimbursements

    By JustWantCarPlayToWorkWell
    They advertise that you just need to scan your receipt and done! But then you have to close the app, wait an unknown amount of time, and then go back in to actually submit your expense. I've had a couple hundred dollars worth of expenses not reimbursed over the last year because I forgot to log back in to do part 2 until after the 30 day window is done. How do you not have notifications constantly reminding users that they have uploaded expenses that they're not going to get paid for unless they submit them?!
  • So easy to use

    By younskeet
    Man it’s legit easy to use cut my expense time in half
  • Super bowl

    By Eurekahowdy
    Put your app on a super bowl commercial. Genius... problem is all is does is crash. So much for that app
  • Be VERY sure about Expensify pricing policies...

    By Kdole
    I have a small business and had hoped Expensify would help with organizing and tracking staff expenses and such...but the set up and process didn’t provide the benefits I’d expected for my particular needs. I tried it out for several weeks (after the initial trial), realized it wasn’t for me, but then got busy with other work, and waited several months to find the log in info and cancel the account. It promptly warned me that I was on a very confusing annual plan, and that they would have to bill me for a higher rate for the months I’ve been using the program. Though I hadn’t been “using” the program, I suppose I didn’t meet the qualifications of an inactive user(?), and that I would have to pay a canceled subscription charge amounting to about 6 months of fees I’d already been paying for 8 months. While I am not normally affected by irritations such as this, it seemed incredibly deceptive, even after reading through the pricing structure again afterwards, and has prompted me to write this review, hoping it might encourage others to understand it thoroughly before committing to an Expensify program. It might have been cheaper to keep the program for the extra months and cancel later, but by that time I was too huffy to consider it, and just wanted out. Too bad. I might have revisited it another time, but certainly not now.
  • Free or not Free??

    By Nickname is nunya
    I getting tired of this latest scheme that developers are using to trick you into downloading an app, enter you email or phone number only to find out you have to pay a monthly fee to use the app. You used to be able to rely on going to the App Store and it would either say “Get” meaning it was free or it would have the price for the app and you could quickly make the decision whether you wanted to pay or not. Apple really needs to take a hard look at this practice that is becoming common now and change it. You shouldn’t have to read carefully through all the fine print that a crafty sales team has created before downloading an app that you expect to be free but it is far from it.
  • App is ridiculously slow

    By Jeffboneyardee
    Next time you decide to have a super bowl ad make sure your servers are able to handle the bandwidth you morons. I can’t even update my password !!!
  • Need help

    By rynnm
    There is not a “Join Now “ button so how do I make a new account ?
  • Priorities Change

    By goat7775
    That was the Super Bowl ad that diverted attention from the mobile app? Now I’m really scared about this service. App has been either crashing or continuing to logout every time for our entire organization.
  • Great app - cropped receipts would make it 5 star

    By La_bibliotecaria
    I love this app! It makes tracking my receipts and submitting them for reimbursement so easy! Pointers: when doing a report, definitely DO go for the attach PDF option - this attaches your nice category grouped report, thumbnails of each receipt, and the full size scans. Two things would make it even better: auto-crop the receipts and make them B&W, and also group multiple scans on a single page so the resulting report isn’t so long. Such a time saver!
  • Lousy instructions

    By kbbaz
    Can’t figure it out.
  • Kick me out

    By Patricio1992.
    It kick me out from the app, cant login now

    By Vbmommy123
    I would love to give a positive review because I have used this app for years and it has been good, but in the past two weeks I have not been able to enter a single receipt. The customer service is good in that they “respond” to my requests for help, however they can give no answer to when the issue will be resolved. So now the app is useless and I wait each day for the update that will “fix” it, but so far none have resolved the issue and they keep saying “next update will fix it” but no time frame. Very disappointed!
  • 2 chainz

    By step48
    Love the 2 Chainz promo!
  • So far so great

    By andrew sorre
    It makes a lot of sense, shows me exactly what my expenses are, organized, and keeps me from hoarding receipts and losing them come tax time. Saving me money, and 5 dollars a month is a no brainer for this app. Love love love it.
  • Small business review

    By Viet manager
    My boss was still using a filing system to record his expenses and then I was suppose to photocopy it for our Cpa, this is ten thousand times more convenient!
  • Frustrating

    By mobileuserwhoexpectsbetter
    Don’t send me to your site to do things your app can’t do and then not let me into your site from my phone. People are mobile.
  • Gimmicky

    By Ascegan
    Require email/password. Good scan functionality but gimmicky- asks for work email, keeps trying to show music videos, I will delete.
  • Clunky and Slow

    By Scagpooole Till Die
    “More options”— this is wear you keep the reimbursable button? I have to click this button AFTER I expand the screen. For those of us that actually have to use this app, it’s very clunky and difficult. I submit expenses daily for my work and this app is sucking seconds-minutes of my life. Seems trivial but I know you can do better than this lay-out. Reach out for suggestions- Best Regards, C.W.B
  • You can not ever cancel your account once you try it.

    By ItPaynesUs
    Don’t do it!! Not worth the hassle. If you ever want to close and delete your account you can not do it. Unsubscribed over a year ago and I received another email today. Tried to delete account following their instructions. Nope won’t work.
  • Great aide!

    By BamaBlake
    Over the past few years I’ve found Expensify to be a great help in my ministry. Makes preparing and submitting expenses much less painful!
  • Will never use/nor recommend this app

    By Tfee78
    If you’re using this to classify receipts for business purposes, be sure to use your personal email to create an account or else you’ll lose everything when you change companies. And this is the only app I’ve seen that won’t let you change your email address on your account.
  • Add Automatic gps

    App is great. I just wish they can add automatic gps and than I can choose if it was a business trip or not. Having to start the gps than stop I dislike. We have other things to think about I want to jump in my car and go make sons money but at the same time the apps that I pay for should have my back to track my miles. I do a lot of traveling and I forget to turn on the gps. Please add automatic GPS.
  • Great stuff

    By dvsdrumz
    Works great
  • So confusing

    By Onmioh
    Not user friendly at all
  • Auto submission alert

    By Fair fanatic
    Was working fine for me. So fine, I upgraded. Then became useless because upgraded app would close out reports based on time. For example, a flight booked and entered would trigger the timer. Report would close out before trip and no easy way to open it up. Multiple reports per trip became as complicated as just reverting back to old system of collecting receipts and doing report at the end. Stopped using completely.
  • No Manual Receipt Matching

    By Csred7
    SmartScan is nice in theory but does not accurately match receipts with imported CC expense line items. This apps developers refuse to add manual receipt matching functionality and hence our whole organizations struggles with the tedious process of switching uploaded receipts to other reports and merging them with existing expenses (rather than simply being able to attach a receipt that has been uploaded previously). Tedious and time consuming barely scratches the surface of the frustration this causes of myself and colleagues. Why their engineering team won’t add this basic functionality is beyond me. 1 star until they make it more user friendly. Note: this functionality was previously available but was removed in the last major UI update.
  • excellent

    By jbuenaga
  • Great potential, but....

    By Pincomark
    Managing expenses is a burden that many of us struggle with. Expensify has the potential to be the best tool available. However, I am left with the feeling that the coders have never actually had to use the app to manage their own expenses there are so many ways the app could be better with a few simple changes. The aim of this should be to reduce clicks required to enter an expense. Here are my top ideas: 1. When you click new expense, a box appears asking if you want to create a new expense? Why? 2. When entering an expense I want to check the category every time. On an iPhone that requires clicking on more options to see it. Why? That should be on the main screen. 3. Finally, when entering $, why not eliminate the decimal point and fill the decimal automatically? Bank of America do this on their app as it is very good. Again eliminates a click. Mark.
  • Fair app

    By Helpless consumer
    As a new self-employee I started using this app to track expenses. It is fair, helps to organize expenses. But it’s interface is difficult to navigate and seems that many functionalities of the website is not available at the app or they are difficult to find. Still need more time to really get the grasp of its usefulness.
  • Expensify

    By Really love it a lot!
    Seems intuitive but does not function with drop downs ad selections as well as it should. Almost oversimplified to the point that it’s complicated and unclear.
  • Time saver

    By hmorris
    I used to DREAD expense reports. This has made my life so much easier. Definitely a huge time saver!
  • Not free

    By Lu_pink
    You only get 5 scans a month for free. If you have to redo the picture of the receipt you wasted a scan. I was trying this out for personal budget. However it’s geared more towards business.
  • Great expense tracker

    By Manda the Road Warrior
    The easiest app I have used for tracking work expenses. each update has improved the intuitive response. Makes recording receipts a pleasure instead of a chore.
  • Awesome!

    By mainemichael22
    Great platform to track expenses!!
  • User experience is awful

    By jd192934958
    I can barely take it. Even writing the review was hard having to try 17 nicknames
  • Smart scan takes to long.

    By Mike777555
    I like the app a lot. But you need patience with Scanning... Thanks.
  • The app is the best!

    By VishyKashi
    Extremely simple to use and the expenses can be added to the system right after you receive the receipt or can be manually entered as soon as we spend. The one of the many things I love about the app is, you can integrate it with your bank account, the reimbursement will be directly transferred into your account. It’s pretty cool app!👌👍
  • Poor customer service

    By DCM280
    I haven’t been able to get answers to several problems I’ve had using Expensify. Polite but useless responses and no path to escalate. VERY DISAPPOINTED!
  • Good app, but missing key features

    By Seriously annoyed...
    Expensify as a platform is awesome, but the mobile app is missing some key features that make it difficult to create expense reports efficiently (both of these features are available on the website): 1) Add support for filtering expenses by date range. The expenses list resets to the top every time I add an expense - quite annoying. I have to scroll down every time I want to add a new expense to a report. 2) Add support for filtering / searching expenses on key words (eg. “American Airlines”). This combined with the lack of time range filtering make it quite difficult to find unique expenses. 3) Add support for bulk tagging multiple expenses for to the same report. Often expense reports tied to a particular trip will be bunches together (since they occur on the same day / set of days). Despite this, I still have to add them one by one. The lack of filtering based on time range makes this extremely annoying.
  • Hello

    By julidue
    Por que lo hacen tan complicado
  • Absolute rubbish onboarding process

    By DirtWarden
    The crapfest you go through to download the app, get the validation email, find it in spam folder, click the link 8 times, unable to find app so it prompts another download, resends the email, let's me know me account hasn't been validated etc etc, over and over and over. What HORRIBLE software!
  • Will charge you for your “free trial”

    By Reeb1414
    App works fine, overpriced for what it is. They say you have a “free” trial but then as soon as you put in a card to continue using it, they include the time during the trial. Also, no option to cancel through the app. Good luck getting ahold of them.
  • Repeated issues

    By epensify
    The scanning process often takes more than 10 minutes up to hours making the process ineffective due to not being able to add details at time of scanning. On occasions the scanning process never completes and nothing is saved not even a picture. I have thrown away several receipts mistakenly assuming they were captured via scan. Now I must save all paper receipts until end of month to ensure they were captured totally negating the functionality of not needing to keep track of paper receipts. This month the receipts I emailed to receipts@expensify were not captured as well.
  • Wtffff super buggy

    By apoonblog
    Can’t add a new bank card, things load super slowly both on the iOS app and the web app. Grrrhhhh so annoying
  • Excellent App...

    By ReviewWallah
    Saves me tons of time and money (don’t forget to submit expenses!). Really helpful integrations with credit cards, Uber et al. Also, the Expensify Guaranteed receipt for expenses less than $70 is a huge time saver.
  • Great app

    By Jonmark 0316
    Fast and easy to use.
  • Not Free

    By hbrown2662
    They only allow 5 scans per month. If you do more than that they want you to pay $5 per month.
  • Best expense app that continues to grow

    By s.jervis
    Expensify is the best expense app I have found. I also love the fact that they never rest and continue to innovate. The integration with Uber is just an example.
  • Initial usage - smart scan is slow

    By Ravi913
    Great app - smart scan is slow and getting set up is slow with too many steps and email verifications Etc. Need to get started more quickly.
