The app was all good and fine until this premium update. I had 3000 points because I was saving for a hoodie that now I can’t even get. All it allows me to actually get is just CDs
new update 👎 2/5
When i first got this app, i thought it was a really great concept that you could reward those who regularly stream music from their favorite artists, especially for those who don’t have the means to buy merchandise. however, this new “premium” update completely ruins the purpose of the app, in my opinion. i’ve been saving up for a hoodie or t-shirt for several months now, and it’s very disappointing to see that users now have to pay a monthly fee for the items they’ve been looking forward to getting.
I LOVED this app but I’m not a fan of this new update. I got this app to get free tickets or Merch from my favorite artists and I entered a contest to win free Why Don’t We Tickets and I ended up winning but they wouldn’t give them to me because I’m not 18 I even had my mom sign off on the paper and everything and they still wouldn’t which I think is messed up not everyone on this app is 18 years or older.
My second problem is the Merch is for premium only now so what am I supposed to do with all my points that I have been saving up to get Merch? I’m disappointed in the new update and I think it’s unfair. But I like that we had the chance to get free stuff. I also like that the more you listen to artists the higher you get on their fan charts. Please change the Merch back to how it was if you don’t then there’s no point for me to have this app anymore and I might as well delete it to save more space on my phone.
apple music? 3/5
love the app, but i am slightly disappointed that they don’t offer you the ability to stream songs through apple music.
Y’all weird but ok.... 3/5
By janaya Y
So I was so close to buying this paramore shirt and when I got on the app fix they are so needy with this fix premium thing,they do that to get more money but on all the clothes,hoodies and stuff it’s only for people who have premium so i really can’t get nothing now it was such a fun and good app until they did that but i guess I have to delete this app..
Rewards become locked 2/5
By Reese VB24
I have been using this app for about 3 months or more and I’m around 2100 points and suddenly all of the rewards I had looked at and been saving for have all of a sudden became “fix premium” reward. Like literally 3/4 of the rewards available are now premium only when they weren’t for the last 3 months
The “free” part is only a 1-time deal 2/5
This used to be a great way to add up points by streaming music, reading news articles, and playing the Name That Tune game, and then eventually redeem a prize with your accumulated points. I was saving my points up on this app for a while and was almost to the amount of the prize I wanted to redeem, but then the app started their Premium deal. Now the prize I was so close to getting requires me to buy the app’s premium service in order to redeem it. Even if you have enough points, you can’t redeem the prize without buying the Premium subscription. And sure—it has a 3-day trial, you can redeem your prize during that period. But if you don’t want to actually buy the Premium deal, that means you would cancel after the trial. So from that point on, all prizes (minus a few small prizes the app offers to still qualify as a “free” service) will require you to *buy* the Premium in order to redeem. So that doesn’t make this a free service anymore, it is only free once.
Pay to get “free” merch? 2/5
By yeet the yeti
I understand officials merch is expensive, however when each point is roughly a penny, FIX makes money off of every reward they ship. When I received my first reward, a wall flag, I was so excited. I had gotten official merchandise from my favorite band, all for listening to their songs! I quickly started making sure to earn as many points as I could. However, in the latest update, things like shirts, hoodies, and hats are all premium rewards. The only things you can order without paying any money whatsoever is the CDs and vinyl records. I was going to save my points and order a hoodie, but now I cannot, unless I want to pay FIX 1.99 a month for “free” band merch. I was ready to tell my friends to download it and start using it, but I will not being telling anyone about this app, unless things change. What was totally free (minus the ads, which I have no problem with), is now “pay to play”. This app was created to connect fans to artists through news and the promise of rewards, but it has fallen away. This app may he free to download, but now it’s “pay to win”. Great idea, but it seems like the developers are too caught up on making money.
Why do I have to pay for something that was advertised as free? I understand the price is only $2 a month, but people using this app probably don’t have two dollars a month.
I know that the items you provide are not free for you (the Fix Company). So, it seems like one of two things happened:
1) After so many people signed up for this app you realized the cost outweighed the profit, and so you had to start charging money,
OR 2) You made the app free at first to gain customers, then after giving them time to earn points - but not enough points to earn a product - locked MANY products behind a paywall. This way, we would be more likely to go ahead and pay every month, and still feel like we “earned” a prize.
Not worth it 2/5
I loved this app when i first got it. Easy to link, easy to earn points, and music news. However, now all of the rewards that I want you can only get if you have premium, which costs money. What’s the point? Don’t waste your time.
loved it until recent update 2/5
I loved how this app wasn’t a scam like other apps. it was acctually easy to gain points and i was close to having enough to claim a prize. then the recent update locked the items i was saving up for?? i loved the idea of this app but now there’s no point because nothing i want is still available unless i pay, which defeats the purpose of the app.
I really wish things were different. 1/5
Up until a few days ago, I enjoyed using your app. The bugs were minor and they didn’t bother me too much, but I updated it because the app offered me points to do so. What I DID NOT expect, was for you developers to completely destroy the user friendly environment that I was so drawn to. So you can imagine my shock when I go to look at the merch I was saving up for, only to find that everything that I had been working so hard for, was taken from me. ALL clothing items and apparel had been “locked” under the “premium fix subscription”. Do corporate companies not understand that I ALREADY pay for a Spotify subscription? Why would I want to pay extra for a product that you had previously promised me was free? Your app used to be exciting and fun, but now I’m ready to just delete it all together. You’re going to lose people’s interest REAL fast. And when everyone realizes what you’ve done, your company’s statistical data and ratings are going to drop so low, you’re going to wish you fired the guy who proposed this idea in the first place.
Progressively getting worse 2/5
Getting free stuff is good and it was easy to access however now I can’t receive points for sharing articles on twitter. And with this new update I can’t get the merchandise I want (sweatshirts) without paying for premium.
It’s a good app, but kind of disappointed 3/5
I’ve had this app for awhile now, maybe like 5 months now? When I first started off using it, I thought it was great. I was earning points fast and wasn’t complaining. I just wished more artists had like clothing merchandise instead of albums or just merch in general. However, with the past two most recent updates, my opinion changed. I really wanted the Teenage Emotions T-Shirt which was 3200 points. I had around 3100 and was going to claim it until it went up to 3400. At first, I was like that’s fine I could just wait a little longer to earn points, it’s only 200 more. I just checked into the app today and I had again, almost enough until I saw that it said that it was only for premium members. I don’t mind paying the $2 but I’m just a little disappointed that things went from entirely free to you-have-to-pay-to-get-this-item.
I would’ve given FIVE stars but... 3/5
Ever since I did the update I’ve been very upset considering I’ve been racking up points for months! For one item that has been taken down so I’m waiting like I did before and still am BUT I was considering getting the other merch from my favorite artist but now I can only get it off of premium, I had very high hopes for this app and I’m kind of disappointed 😔
I never write reviews, but I was so annoyed that I had to. I literally JUST got this app, with the sole purpose of paying for concert tickets with points from the app. A day or two later, the ticketmaster gift cards as well as almost half of the things in the shop listed are for Fix Premium only!1!1 The point of the app was that it’s free. I genuinely believe the developers were just waiting for the app to blow up before limiting everything and forcing everyone to pay. Change it back or all of your users WILL leave.
Pay to play 3/5
By Birds and Bees Podcast
I really liked the app when it started. I’m number one on many of the classic rock charts and that was fun to participate in.
It started out fun competing in listening to your favorite bands to see who’s on top, and play name that tune (still my favorite on the app), Then people could pay to get more plays with point multiplying to get ahead ... ok no big deal ... then 50 streams a day reduced to 20 a day (if you don’t pay) ... annoying ... but then come to find out the reward I was saving for is now a “premium only” reward. I’m frustrated with that move. I watch the ads, read the articles, log on each day and share things so I don’t know why the more updates that come on the more you pay Fix to get a reward.
It feels like a carnival game. You spend 20 bucks to “win” a 5 dollar prize. The rewards are mainly CDs and Records which is pretty cool. The clothing merchandise is alright (depending on the artist you like). I really don’t like the trend Fix is moving toward. I’ll cash in my 6,000 points and probably delete if things don’t change much.
I wish they accepted Apple Music streams.
By La Heckerino
It’s crappy that I have to pay for premium to get the shirts the only reason I joined was to get the things for free because I can’t buy them because I am freakin poor and I wish that this wasn’t added.
Enjoyed it at first, but not anymore 2/5
When I first downloaded the app, I was fairly pleased for a while as everything seemed to work decently. However recently, right as I saved up enough points to redeem a reward, all the rewards changed to require more points than before and along with that all of them except for Vinyls and CD’s became irredeemable unless you decide to purchase Fix premium. Overall, I ended up wasting too much time with this app just to be let down.
Is actually free 5/5
Literally the app doesn’t scam you, you earn your points fairly and earn the prizes you want. No catches. It’s so to the point and it gives you so many opportunities to earn points as well as cool prizes. Best app that does this.
Have to Buy Subscription for the Best Experience 2/5
I started using the app in February before this new update and it was the best. The rewards were amazing, and I really enjoyed the app. Now with the update I can’t use my points to get the reward I want because the reward is a “premium award”. I’m really ticked because it took me awhile to earn the points for a Ticketmaster gift card. I have the points now and am not able to get what I wanted originally. I have to purchase the subscription to get the Ticketmaster gift card. The only rewards you can get without the subscription are CDs.
fix im so disappointed 1/5
FIX i am back and im so disappointed. I’ve told y’all about how I can’t share articles and news and the problem is still not fixed. Y’all updated yesterday, but I still can’t share. And here’s the new problem...why are yalll making merch premium. I can’t believe y’all stoop so low to get money. This app is about making points by doing something I love; listening to music. Then from that I get basically free merch. Are y’all money hungry? Are y’all not making enough money? I’m so confused on how y’all thought it was a good idea to make cool merches that I wanted premium. That’s so messed up and I didn’t expect that. Look, I like the app..well the old version. This new version is not a good look on y’all. What’s the point in making points to get free merch but we still have to pay to get the merch. Please make me understand. FIX, fix the share article stuff and take the premium off of merch. Thats not fair to young girls and boys who have finally found a way to get free merch from their favorite artists and then to find out, you need a card and some money to actually get it. This is unacceptable and im disappointed, please go back to the old app.
initially loved but am disappointed 3/5
when i first got this app i LOVED it!!! free stuff for listening to music?? can’t get much better than that! but now with fix premium i’m unable to redeem awards that i was previously able to. kinda disappointed they started charging for the majority of rewards.
Boo boo poo poo
New update ruins the entire point of the app 1/5
By olivia stavely
The point of this app, and why it is getting so many people and why it is gaining popularity, is that it is a FREE music rewards app.
I’ve been saving for a pretty expensive item for a WHILE now, and now I have to buy a subscription in order to redeem those points. What used to be an amazing app that I recommended to friends is now garbage, and I’m embarrassed I recommended it to so many people. I put up with the ads and the glitches because it was a cool idea. I put up the fewer opportunities for points with every single update. But this app just keeps getting worse and worse.
The current developer defense is that shipping is expensive. I understand that shipping is expensive, but the app also recently raised the point purchase value on a lot of items too, that should cover shipping. I’ve also had enough ads come up during my time spent on the app for that shipping cost to be completely covered. I’ve wasted months on my time for nothing.
I was even thinking about getting premium because I loved the app so much, but now that I’m being forced into it, I don’t want it. But you can’t change things last minute- that’s why there’s so many angry people over this.
The reason this app was gaining popularity was that it was a FREE rewards app. Now that I have to pay, what’s the point?? All because the developers got a little greedy. You should have grandfathered in the loyal users to the free version. People who have been loyally using the app for MONTHS.
Now that all apparel items require a premium membership to claim, there’s less incentive to check in. Now only vinyl records and CDs are available with a free membership, and most people don’t have CD or record players. Make more things available with the free membership again and I can change my rating.
It was fun while it lasted. I see raising the price of rewards, removing ways to earn additional points, and locking the rewards people actually want Is the best your team could come up with? Great idea👏👏
At first I loved this app and thought it was amazing, but with the new update and the whole “premium only” purchases I hate it. I was saving for an anime hoodie and then the update struck me. You have lost my time with your app. I hope you enjoy scamming people. Bye.
Used to be AMAZING 1/5
It used to be so easy and fun to get points. Now there’s barely opportunity to get points and they just recently started making you pay a monthly subscription in order to be able to redeem your points.
unhelpful updates 1/5
you raised how many points i needed to get the day i had enough for the original point amount. and now all of a sudden i need premium to get anything other than an album? i’m just annoyed that i wasted my time. i will no longer be recommending this app to people.
Very disappointed 1/5
I used this app for a long time and was getting close to being able to get the sweater I wanted, but with the new update all of the hats,sweaters, shirts and mugs are for only Fix Premium!!!!
Good concept, could be better execution 4/5
By ARJ<3s ART
I was worried this app would be a scam but it genuinely isn’t. I was able to earn enough points without spending any money on the app to order a vinyl record! Shipping took a bit, but hey, its free. The app itself leaves something to be desired but completes all functions nicely. It can be slow/clunky sometimes and isn’t the prettiest or most organized but overall it works. I sometimes get annoyed by the “guess the artist” game because it plays artists i have never heard of. I wish the news articles were catered more to my music interests than just general music news. But it does get you free stuff! And that’s what its best at.
By Awesomeness scale
I’ve liked the idea but now you can’t get free stuff without going premium so it’s not really free stuff anymore
doesn’t load when I open the app 1/5
I downloaded this app a few minutes ago and it’s been on be loading screen for a few minutes. I tried deleting it and redownloading but that doesn’t seem to do the trick. fix it.
So I started using the app, around 3 months ago. Some issues I found were that it’s really hard to get points. Sometimes when I listen to music I don’t even get points for it. Or when I redeem something it doesn’t let me track the package or when it’s arriving or even if it’s shipping.
Free stuff is free stuff - but.... 4/5
I mean, who doesn’t love free Ticketmaster gift cards & free merch from their favorite artists? Since I’ve started using the app, a major way to earn points are no longer available - you used to be able to share news articles for points. You can still share them but you won’t earn anything. Meanwhile the price of a Ticketmaster gift card went from 2500 to 3500 so now it’s more points with less ways to earn those points unless you spent money on the boosters. My only other issue is regarding the rewards that are shirts. They don’t show what sizes are available until after you redeem your points for it & if your size isn’t available you can’t get your points refunded. So for someone who may wear a XL & is saving up for a shirt may only be able to redeem a S shirt which wouldn’t be of any use for that person.
it’s ight 4/5
pretty chill and works good
Pretty cool app
love the app
Fix App 4/5
If I’m being totally honest I like this app, it gives us fans a chance to earn merch from our favorite artists an easier way when we can’t afford them. The only problem that I have is when we listen to a certain artist they don’t track the amount of music right, the points doesn’t come close to the amount of music that we listen to, I know that it takes 24 hours to update the fan chart data but another thing is when we follow a certain artist and listen to their music as we usually would it takes a LONG TIME to get added to the chart and it’s confusing and just a tad bit annoying. But it is a great app, it takes forever with the points but gradually its a good app. I feel like updating it and putting all the boosters is a bit much.
It is okay 4/5
I wish some of the items were less points but other that that it is an amazing app
This is a really cool app 5/5
This app genuinely gives you gifts for just listening to music. I’m trying to save up for an XXX disc for my friend and me writing this review just gives me a boost to getting it.
So fun 5/5
Just ordered my first vinyl record and can’t thank the developers enough!
Good app good music.......periodtt🤦🏽♀️🚫🧢
Love this app
Love it 5/5
Free merchandise for just listen to your favorite artists
Free stuff JUST for listening to music? Honestly, can’t complain and that’s how you attract a crowd.
