What do you like best?

The platform is well-designed and easy to use. My account was easy to set up and link to my student loan account. My company allocations are automatically applied to my loan and don't require any management on my end. Peanut Butter also provides great resources for those wanting to learn more about student loans and options to get them paid off or even forgiven. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I haven't encountered anything I haven't liked about the platform yet! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I think Peanut Butter is one of the best non-traditional company benefits out there. So many people are struggling to pay off large amounts of student debt and this benefit allows companies to invest in their employees and reduce their financial stress. Peanut Butter is allowing me to accelerate paying off my student loans by several months so I can use that money toward more savings and retirement funds. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It was very easy to set up and monitor, I didn't have any issues the entire time we were working on my loans. I also got an update every time there was a payment, which made it a little more exciting to see the number go down each month. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I don't think think there was anything I particularly disliked. I think I would have liked a little more informaiton about what steps to take when my loan was paid off. I did eventually get a message letting me know that things were taken care of but I thought I would have gotten a little more communication just based on the regular notifications I was getting. Overall, this is a "wishful thinking" thing, not completely necessary Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you have all the account numbers and authorizations you need when you start, you will never have to deal with issues again. This team takes care of it all! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Having Peanut Butter take care of the loan that has followed me around since school was helpful from a stress standpoint. I knew the minimum was getting taken care of every month so it allowed me to budget and flex my spending to either work on the loan or work on other things with a peace of mind Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Peanut Butter is one of the most user friendly systems I have ever used. It makes administering this program for our employees a breeze! There are no guessing games, and even if you are unsure or have questions, Dave the owner will provide you with 1:1 training to be sure you are equipped to be successful! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There was only 1 downside to Peanut Butter that I had come across when first using it. You couldn't load the Terminations, they had to be removed one by one. Once I brought this to Dave's attention, he fixed it and created an uploading process and now you can! Perfect! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This is a great program! Our employees love that we have this perk as part of our Total Rewards Package. It's very easy to administer and requires very little Administrative efforts on a monthly basis. I like how the $ contribution goes straight to the employees student loan, you will not be the middle man! It's a great system and amazing concept! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The way Peanut Butter works, is it helps to take out the day to day hassle of administering a program that really benefits our employees. Our employees love this program and are always excited to participate in it! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I loved how easy it was to set up peanut butter as a benefit for our employees. As a growing startup, Peanut Butter was quicker, cheaper, and easier to set up than a 401k and it has helped us attract a diverse range of talented folks to our team. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The fact that companies are stepping up to help with the financial crisis of student loans. This is a detrimental dilemma that needs to be addressed and being able to receive assistance with repaying the loans is phenomena. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I have not experienced any downside of the program. The staff has been very helpful with setting the repayment assistance. The only issue I would comment on is that the monthly payment should increase, but I am assuming that this is the decision of the employer and not Peanut Butter. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Continue to grow and expand. This type of assistance is so greatly needed. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Being able to eliminate student loan deb is a great benefit in many ways. Student loan debt is a huge burden. It appears on the credit report effecting future purchases, has unreasonable monthly payment plans and hinders one from being able to save financially. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

1. Ease of Use 2. Positive EE feedback 3. Amazing Customer Service. I love how I don't have stay on-top of this vendor. Meaning the self-manage and stay on-top of things as promised. Other vendors, require so much managing you almost want to bring it back in-house. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Nothing so far. David Aronson takes excellent care of us. I wish all of our vendors were this easy. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Consider the ease of administration over the price. You'll end up saving money and frustration in the long run by reducing your admin time and dollars.

I really like how user friendly the site is to navigate. Having a student loan is pretty awful, but Peanut Butter makes it so much! My favorite part of the month is getting the email letting me know how many days I have taken off of my loan. When I was interviewing for my job and they mentioned that student loan assistance was an option I was sold. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

It's a great benefit to have my employer make a monthly contribution towards my student loan debt. It's easy, automated & (almost) free money! I've continued my regular payments and am now chipping away at more and more principal each month. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

It's worth noting that you are taxed as income on whatever amount your employer contributes towards your loan, but for me, the benefits of the program outweigh this cost. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The program has allowed me to contribute more overall per month to my loans. I'm paying more principal and will pay off my loans sooner! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Easy. Everything was easy with Peanut Butter.

Most vendors offer a fancy sales pitch to get you in the door, and once through the door that pitch falls apart. You find the salesmen didn't understand the complex nature of your business, didn't understand your IT and Security requirements, underestimated the Go-Live requirements and timelines, and overestimated the impact on bottom line results.

Peanut Butter is the opposite. We were ready to implement a full 3 months early, THEY completed our extremely laborious and detailed IT and Security Questionnaires, and they were available for support from the time of our business case (a full 1.5 years before we launched and they ever saw a dime from us) to this very day. They want what is best for you and your employees, even if that sometimes means telling you that your gut assumptions are wrong.

Their system is easy. Sign-up is easy. Utilisation is easy. They keep it simple, so you and your employees benefit. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

This isn't Peanut Butter's fault, just a confusing aspect of the program. The payment shows up on an employee's paystub, and THEN the next month the funds get sent to their student loan. So out the gate it feels like you are paying out of pocket without getting anything at first.

On top of that, since it is a taxable benefit, employee's take home pay often goes down. A little shocking at first.

Only way to avoid that would possibly be an integration with your Payroll system, and some form of payment made through Peanut Butter automatically when deductions are received. Almost like an ACH transfer through multiple parties. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

We looked at 3 vendors in total, and Peanut Butter was the clear winner. If you are looking at anyone else, I highly recommend you stop and just move forward with Peanut Butter. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are a Bank of over 50% Millennial. College education is expensive and crippling to the younger generations. As a Bank, we need people to have money to be able to deposit it, to get mortgages, and overall use our products and services.

We are both rewarding the hard work of our employees, lessening the stress of their every day lives, and opening the door for them to use our own products and services at a faster rate. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I loved how efficient and easy it was for me to sign up and lock arms with Peanut Butter to help me pay off my Student Loans faster. I have never heard of a company like Peanut Butter before until their organization was introduced to us by our current CEO. I thought the idea was fantastic and wanted to partner immediately. Peanut Butter made it so much easier for me to pay off my loans faster with their monthly contributions. What a great conversation starter as well it has been talking with new/prospective hires we have added to our team over the past year about how awesome of an organization like Peanut Butter is to partner and lock arms with. Very intriguing idea that get people excited to want to work with us since we have such an awesome partner like Peanut Butter! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
