App Reviews

  • Can’t even access my acct/ unhelpful customer support

    By fefebelle
    EDIT: Don’t get your hopes up for continued use! After speaking with Sonic customer support, it is clear they are contracting with a company and have zero control over the app. They don’t tell Sonic why accounts are deactivated, which is what has happened to mine. The deactivated accounts cannot be re-activated and I refuse to create another email account just for this ridiculous app. There is 1 star because at least one star is required. I’ve been using the app for most of the summer. There have been issues, but they were easily fixed. A few days ago I attempted to add money to my gift card to make a purchase (which is a whole different issue). It kicked me out of the app right as I confirmed the reload. I opened the app again and was asked to login. My email and password were not accepted. I attempted to reset my password several times, but I never received the email to do this. I even tried to login from a PC. When I emailed customer service, I included an outline of the steps I took. What did they do? They told me to do all those same steps as if they hadn’t read my email. Talk about not listening to your customers. What a waste of time. Many of the reviews on here are good- just wait and see. I will call them, but after reading some of the other reviews, I don’t expect to receive good or competent customer service.
  • I hope the bugs are just in the app

    By Pretty good a lot of choices
    So I’ve downloaded the app and I’m trying to figure out how to get the coupon for the Free drink if anybody can tell me how to do this I would owe them a drink.. OK I have figured out how to get the coupon for the free drink for downloading the app but when you click redeem it says to show it to the carhop when she shows up well in between her showing up in the 40 minute wait for my order,,, somebody called me and guess where the coupon went???? your guess is as good as mine.,. Because you can’t simply tell the carhop you we deemed the free drink from the downloading of this app you have to actually show them and once you’ve redeemed it you can’t pull it back up which is pretty ridiculous because if it happens to go away then you have no way to prove that you were trying to redeem it...thank goodness there are no bugs in the food because this place wouldn’t be worth coming to... but the food was great LOL.. Also the nearest sonic portion of the app never showed me which sonic was close and I’m fortunately there were three different ones in the town I was visiting so to get that fixed that would be great too. But stay positive you guys will get it...
  • No explanation for deactivated account, NO RESOLUTION!

    By thundercats.are.gooo
    I went to log in to the app today and was told my account had been deactivated. I then called the customer support number in the app and they could give me no explanation as to why I could not access my account, no information as to what amount of money was left on my virtual gift card when my account was deactivated, and also no information as to when I would be refunded the remaining amount of money that was on my card when my account got deactivated. What kind of customer support are you supposed to be when you have no remedy for this apparently wide-spread issue except to create a new account and hope for you money back?! What’s even the point of the app at all if something this simple can’t be easily fixed by calling the customer service number you provide to us?! Needless to say, I have already deleted the app. It’s extremely frustrating as I loved the deals and ability to order ahead, but my account getting deactivated for no reason at all and customer service having no way to get it back up is beyond annoying. The app was basically the only reason I was going to Sonic restaurants so often lately, and now I won’t go nearly as much. I suggest Sonic fix this issue quick, or I’m sure more customers will be just as frustrated as I am right now.
  • It’s all good until it isn’t!

    By MomNicole
    I loved the idea of ordering on the app and being able to pull in, pay, and have your order brought out. A little over a month ago there was a glitch with the app. I ordered before I arrived and during the order I had to reload because my balance was low. As I pulled into Sonic to select witch bay I was in it reloaded again! My total was $4.10, the first reload was $10 but they only took $4.01 off; then it reloaded for another $10 taking the remaining .09 of the total. So me know technology, I thought, it would either add the extra $10 to the sonic app or it wouldn’t post from my debit card. After 5 days the second reload for $10 posted but the balance did not reflect that in the sonic app. I sent a message through the app support team. They instructed me to contact the location for my refund. The located advised they had no knowledge of this type of technology and to call home office. I have called, emailed, called, emailed, called, called, called, called and called! Only for them to email me that my issue can not be resolved. I only wanted them to add the freakin $10 to the app since I’m doing business with them anyway and I understand how technology can fail Us. I have receipts, bank statements and screenshots of transactions to support my complaint!! This is not acceptable!
  • Inconvenient payment method. Won’t use it because of this.

    By MadHatterWonka
    I love using apps to order food at fast food places, but this app has a very serious flaw that will prevent me from using it which in turn will prevent me from visiting Sonic as much as I might ordinarily. I may be completely wrong about this, and if I am, I will gladly edit or delete this review. From what I understand, I have to add my credit card and then purchase a prepaid Sonic card. Why can’t I just add my credit card and pay as I go from it? I haven’t seen any other place do this. I live in Chicago area and have the Portillo‘s app on my phone. It charges my credit card, I don’t have to buy a prepaid Portillo‘s card. I work in a hospital and sometimes get food for my coworkers. I couldn’t even decide on a reasonable prepaid amount. One visit I might use $10 for myself and the next could be over $50 because I’m getting food for several people. Is my understanding of this is correct, I won’t use the app to order at all, and my visits will be less frequent than other places. I can’t speak on how the rest of the app is, because I can’t use it with the payment method the way it is.
  • Useless

    By Annoyed!@#$%^&*&^%$#@!!!!!!
    Doesn’t have any info about how it works. Guess you have to be in the know which I wasn’t. Didn’t see any way to place an order or to pay with phone. Only thing I saw to do was buy their card hoping I could then place an order. Don’t see any point in letting them know where I am (slot drive thru or window) if I’m ordering when I’m already there. Maybe they have different mobile methods available at different locations??? I ended up giving them my credit card info to buy their stinky card with a minimum amount them was unable to purchase anything without going to the store first to ask because mid afternoon on a week day my local store never answered the phone. I’m sure I won’t be able to get a refund and I’m just plain frustrated. Maybe this is how they make money — channeling folks into buying useless cards????? Well I’ll go there and spend the full balance and NEVER GO BACK. NEVER EVER EVER NEVER. Which is too bad since I’m new to my area, the location is great, and the menu sounded delicious. No previous experience with Sonic and now I want nothing to do with them. Short version is the app works great but doesn’t do anything useful.
  • Needs a ton of work

    By Candichay M
    First of all, the reward redemption process on this app is terrible. You can’t even redeem the rewards because by the time you try to, by tapping “redeem” it has disappeared. Try telling the employees you have a reward that isn’t visible anymore...most of the employees don’t know how to use the app anyway and make it seem like it’s an inconvenience that you want to pay with the app. Their lack of knowledge on the app / payment system isn’t fair to customers who have loaded money on to the app. I was told that I had to use my card because the girl didn’t *think* their store used the app...I asked her to find out for me, she did, and she was wrong, so someone else helped me out. So I would have essentially paid $40 for $20 worth of food since I loaded money on this app. Also, I have been told that if I had say $3 left of the app and I wanted to pay the difference with my card to zero out and never use the app again I can’t do that. So I cannot ever have a zero balance. I keeps prompting you to add more to cover your purchase and then some. I don’t want money on the app! I want to zero out and be done with sonic!! Blah.
  • Hate the update!!!!

    By HogFan44
    Before the update, however long ago that was, the app worked great. I could immediately get on it and know exactly the balance on my sonic card, and while I was in the drive-thru line I could reload it if I didn't have enough $ on it to cover my order. Since the update it does not maintain my balance. The balance it shows is always the amount after I reload the card, it doesn't deduct my transactions from the balance...the transactions are all listed in the transactions tab, but not deducted from the balance shown on the card page. This is very frustrating because I don't have time to sit there and try to figure up what my balance is based on the listed transactions, so when I go to pay for my order I find out that I do not have enough $ on my card and then have to either use a different form of payment or reload the card and then use it. VERY FRUSTRATING!!!! I just want to know my balance please.
  • Seems useless

    By Pkgcdrulpncsswassdcjiolplcsrc
    I thought I would download the app because I keep seeing signs at my sonic to order ahead. And I thought this would be awesome because it seems they never can hear me at my sonic. And I always end up having to scream my order at them. But after doing this, it asked me I’m up for a road trip, because no stores within 50miles from me will do a Mobile pay. So I’m kinda confused on that part. Also from what I see, you’re forced to buy a virtual card. So unless I want to drive Over 50miles to use it, I won’t be doing that. Also, what if my totally is $5.33 and i have to buy $10 cars? I’d rather not have a balance in some app that could potentially lose information. This is just stupid. I thought it would work like McDonald’s works. Order your food. Go to the restaurant, and check in and it uses your debit/credit card to purchase. Easy peasy. This was way more complicated than it needed to be. Also, stores: don’t advertise to download the app if you don’t even allow it at your location lol. What a waste of 10min of my life lol.
  • Tips

    By Womenfly2
    Get with the program people. No one carries around cash? Not even needed for toll roads anymore. You have have the ability to use state of the art technology & you “could” update your software. I was told that y’all had problems over 10 years ago. Wow! That’s a long time ago. A lot has happened since then. Please allow your employees to get tips by credit card through either the app or on location. Pizza is usually paid for in advance. And customers have the option to add on a tip upon delivery of food. So seriously, y’all have no excuse & your employees may stick around longer & be happier for it. And y’all are not even having to pay them more money, the customers will be glad to do it. It’s a win win win. And there will be smiles all around. You’ll see... Don't be a Scrooge when you don’t even have to be. The more you give, the more you will receive.
