Stop please
by Jay8729 on 2019/04/25 16:21
Hello. I’ve been trying to reach this company for the pass week or so. Sending out a couple of emails explaining that I do not want to use this app anymore and to also please stop charging me. I went so far to even freeze my account. No one has reached back to me and I’m trying to handle this on the lowest level possible. Can someone please contact me back. Thank you
Great Option
by czeller93 on 2019/04/24 13:39
Thoroughly enjoy this app. Has really been beneficial as opposed to randomly placing my money into one fund and letting it grow without knowledge of current markets. I have seen an excellent return, through both market lows and highs. Definitely worth the money!
Discovered bug
by battleryhtym on 2019/03/07 03:37
When trying to update my account balance and setting allocation, the numbers keep going back to 0 after scrolling down or up. Will update review after a few months of advice results and when the bug if fixed.
Don’t fall for it
by mahmudgh on 2019/01/13 02:27
This is basically an attempt to get you signed up for the monthly exorbitant subscription. The monthly subscription $6 might not sound much to you but it really adds up multiplying that by 12. It’s not worth it because their predictions or projections have been below par, it’s laughable. I will not recommend them look else where for a lower fee and better results.
Solid App, tip not so much
by dabier on 2019/01/09 20:03
I have been following the tips for over a year. There was some gain prior to the year 2018. However, a loss according to my TSP 4th quarter statement which shows a personal rate of return of-0.99%. Not impressed.
Buy and hold Wins
by Duster2027 on 2018/12/02 03:13
I stopped following there advice for two reasons. Their policy of only making changes Monday morning is often too late. Maybe because they do there number crunching on Saturday? Regardless of the market going up or down they always are about a week or two late to the party. I think you are better off with a buy and hold plan or follow the tsptalk website for very good free advice. Most important, maximize your contributions, you can’t afford not to:)
Saved me enough on one tips to pay the app for 150yrs
by The Woodrow on 2018/11/06 03:07
I started using the app in June 2018, albeit not as assiduously as I did in July. Previously I followed Dave Ramsey’s 60/20/20 for C/S/I. In October I moved my funds per app suggestions and saved 9000$, avoiding the majority(40-85%) of the market volatility. That’s 150yrs of paying for the app.
Worth l my subscription fee.
by JetFuelPerfume on 2018/10/25 00:23
I started using TSP Tips in March 2018. They correctly anticipated the downturn in October 2918 and twice moved money out of the C Fund to the G fund just in time. Let’s hope they get the switch back at the correct time too.
Active participation
by Lazy Onion on 2018/08/21 09:38
I've put money into the various accounts without much thought on how my money was being managed. I looked at my account last fall, after listening to a radio personality discussing the in and outs of the funds with a guest caller. I decided I needed to pay more attention and found this app. I spend more money at my kids football games than I paid for this, so why not. Ive gone from 7% safe growth to just over 13% since October. I know the market is booming now, so time will tell. The app provides a means of tracking, that's all. They send you the emails for any recommendations. I wish it would have a notification for a new recommendation. It works... Aug ‘18 update: I was happy with the app until a recent update. I have an iPhone SE (smaller screen), when updating my balance, the sections to enter my percentages in show “What percentage in ...”. This is completely useless as it asks for a number only. Someone didn’t test this on a smaller device, it’s a mandatory field, so I end up entering 100 in the first row to continue. As for the services they provide, I ran 23% up until Twitter January, now I’m seeing a 8.3% this year. I’m overall happy with my investments.
Overall satisfied, needs some polish.
by Iron1mike on 2018/08/16 20:00
Recent issue with updates, likely a server issue, overall good experience with tsptips. Auto balance updates needs some tweaking. No option to specify traditional or Roth contributions. Allocation changes submitted over the weekend are not fully processed until Tuesday morning by tsp.gov. Would like to see some more robust future planning calculators. These can be found elsewhere, but convenience is important. Been a subscriber for two years and will continue to be. Just hope improvements become a factor of importance in the cuter

The app keeps crashing and I cannot login.
Be smart...buy and hold.
by JW12Ace on 2018/07/14 16:46
It's better than leaving your money in G, but that said I found I get way better results being a Buy and Hold investor. You can't constantly time the market....you’ll hit the same as you miss. Stick with your stocks and you'll make money (buy and hold). I’ve tracked my B&H approach for 2 years against these recommendations and average 18% more than this app. Do your research and buy and hold on index funds.
Reset password
by adtrfcryjct on 2018/07/12 21:30
I forgot my password and every time I click “forgot password” it kicks me out of the app and won’t let me in. Find this extremely useless
Baloney!!!
by BustTheCrap on 2018/03/28 01:07
Just read the post by AlasCat posted Dec 20th 2017. Why do you think there are LifeCycle funds??
Simple, Easy, Safe
by Engineer_wv on 2018/03/28 00:23
When I started this app they had almost the same figures I had, plus or minus 10% investment [which apparently is a lot] but I'm no stock analyst. It's simple and easy and safe, you still manage the account, they just advise. I'm happy. Update: Looking back four years later, I'm still happy. Granted the market worm has turned but I went from 2-5% on my PIP doing it myself to 12-17% under their advice. Gangbusters! It's worth every cent to have this app. It's no guarantee as nothing in stocks ever is, but they know what they are doing, far better than me.
What a bunch of baloney!
by AlasCat on 2017/12/20 16:50
This app is nothing more than a means to get you to sign up for their monthly fees. Don't be fooled. And when they claimed that they made money in 2008 when the economy tanked, let's see some proof. Was this service even in business then? And then there's the reviews. Several different (4&5 star) reviews mention the "nominal" fees. Odd word to have pop up in several different reviews. Sound suspicious to you? Me too. If you don't know enough about timing the markets to shift your investments around, what makes you think that these guys know any more? Because of their undocumented claims and some ginned up reviews on their app? Put your money in the lifecycle funds and go about your life. That's what they're there for.
Working great for me!
by YorkR&K on 2017/11/29 21:23
It eliminates the guess work for me. I get a push notification telling me where to move my money. The nominal fee is irrelevant to me, I am busy and don't have time to keep up with the market.
Must-have
by rayner07 on 2017/11/03 23:34
From a skeptic, this app has done nothing but impress me. Great developers, great results--as long as you understand downloading the app won't materialize money for you.
Waste of money
by Cesarddiaz on 2017/11/02 10:45
The data they provide is literally available all over the Internet for free. Even the TSP website offers education. Educate yourself on your money and future, don’t pay someone else to do the thinking for you.
Love Money!

Annual returns and iPad Version
by bparg11 on 2017/09/16 20:57
Would like to be able to see past annual performance/returns maybe quarterly updates. Then be able to compare those returns to S&P over time. I only have iPad so I would like to see iPad version. There is some clunkyness using iPhone version on pad. I like the weekly updates. Update: I'm still liking the weekly updates. I would like to see the performance of the TIPs though. Yearly and quarterly would be nice. How did TIPs perform in 2016 and how is it performing in 2017? I don't always follow and would like to compare my performance to TIPs
It's the way to make great returns
by worldtravelerusa on 2017/09/16 20:53
Solid forecasts with excellent forecast models. I have tried others and lost money when they showed profits. This is the real deal! Thanks for the service and advice.
So far so good
by 10%ormore on 2017/09/16 00:45
I have mostly played it safe in the G fund my whole career. Now that I have found this AP I've been playing around with my funds. Haven't been on very long but will be very happy if I can make just 10%.
What's the deal
by King22spade on 2017/09/11 21:22
This app is nice to have just got it so can't really say much as to how well it works. One issue I have is the graph so if I tap say the F fund on the pie chart it will highlight the G fund to right rather than the F fund. This concerns me. Am I allocating my money into the proper fund? Which one is right? The fact that you pay for this app and use it to invest a significant amount of money for your future and it has a issue like that I'm not sure how much I trust it.
Awesome app
by self made hundredaire on 2017/08/26 21:20
I tend to forget about the TSP, but thanks to tsp tips I have made 17% over the past year. I have been using TSP tips for two years and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
Gaining Confidence
by arbncwgrl on 2017/08/21 01:13
While I am still learning to invest in the market this app has allowed me to spread my wings but at this point I am not ready to invest full at ur recommendations. Would appreciate strategies for the learning investor!
Just get it & 👀 your 💲grow!!!
by Zimm79 on 2017/08/19 13:20
I made the mistake of not really investing in TSP until 1/2 way through my career. This app (subscription) has more than paid for itself. I love that any questions/feedback given to the developers is responded to within 24/48 hrs - by the developers/owners themselves!!! I really wish I would have found this app earlier.
Pays for itself
by Wlkng dead on 2017/08/08 21:33
In my 6 months of following their recommendations, my PIP has increased from essentially negligible to about 13%. Paying for these recommendations easily pays for itself. My only criticism is with the app itself. The graphs have sudden drop-offs for some times when I didn't update my balance. Sometimes. Other gaps in my balance updating are smoothed. It'd be nice if the graphs smoothed out the missing data instead of dropping it to zero.
Excellent!
by AWB607 on 2017/07/29 22:02
I was guessing and foundering before taking the advise of TSP Tips. My account has grown tremendously with the distribution percentages I'm happy to see my TSP grow. This application works great, the advise has been producing results, and the one time I had need to contact the developers they promptly responded. If you're not doing anything with your TSP, then what do you have to lose except to try their advise?? I recommend TSP Tips to all my coworkers.
Information
by Stigalbc on 2017/07/27 13:30
It gives me the information I need to access the best fund at the time. I would love to see annual and monthly trends of best funds!!
Horrible returns!!
by starmont36 on 2017/07/26 17:59
Since this app launched here are the annual returns that it has given you: 2014=0.45%, 2015=(-3.90%), 2016=5.67%. Plus they post more IFT's per month than what is allowed by the TSP. With these horrible returns you'd be better off buying and holding any of the funds because they all beat it.
Great App
by Johnny Gambit on 2017/07/22 12:30
Investing in TSP can be annoying with only being able to move your funds twice a month and each fund being part of a broader index. This app makes it extremely easy to manage and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to make money in their TSP account.
Great Returns so far!
by AirForce Capt on 2017/07/16 15:43
Before I got this app I was averaging about 6-8% return on my TSP. I've had TSP tips for about a year and a half and am averaging 13.49% return since following TSP Tips. The cost was very inexpensive for the returns I've had so far. Definitely recommend!
Outstanding app!
by Saettelbags on 2017/07/10 11:18
While using TSP Tips, I've averaged a 12% return on my TSP account the past 2 years - pretty remarkable! I would recommend this app to anyone.
Simply wonderful!
by imyou on 2017/07/10 06:04
I have been looking for a more aggressive investment opinion then the tsp lifecycle funds, and this is it. If you like aggressive growth advice this is your app.

❤️watching money making money
by RNLucille on 2017/05/23 22:21
I wish I would have found this app sooner. The secret of rich people is that they make money off of their money. This app helps you do that. Just login and make the changes that they suggest and watch your money grow. This year I have seen my account grow by over $500 in five months. I paid for the whole year by buying gift card. So many people are clueless as to what to do with their TSP and their money so sedentary not making money. Check out their website for yearly return rates on their suggested changes within the TSP funds. You will be amazed.
The Best
by Jon1022 on 2017/05/20 05:23
If you are trying to get the most out of your TSP investment this is a must. Always above the normal rate of return.
I like it so far...
by wildbillfitch on 2017/05/04 04:16
It's hard to tell, I had everything split between S and I, pretty crazy I know but I figured it would average out. I think this will be better than lifecycle...time will tell, I think after a year I can give better insight! Fingers crossed!
Like it
by Reddrumsc on 2017/04/30 22:51
I haven't been with them long enough to make a performance decision. That said, I really like the way that it keeps me involved and checking the markets and my retirement savings weekly. Of course, I don't just listen to one source and my gut is telling me this advice is conservative. Time will tell, but I'll gladly remain a member and I appreciate the effort these fellas put into this app.
I like it
by Doc Debakey on 2017/04/25 19:13
I like this app. I don't know much about investing especially in the TSP so this helps me place my money where it should be.

Great App!
by Slickric25 on 2017/03/02 17:01
I was lost before when I came to moving my tsp funds. Based on their track records. I'm trusting tap funds to move my money/stocks around and it's working! Everyone should give it a try!
Solid.
by TheGibson on 2017/02/27 02:43
The app works, I like the user interface. I enjoy the weekly updates. So far no complaints.
Too easy
by Nandini13 on 2017/02/20 12:30
It's very easy to understand and great for on-the-move person. Great advices.?
Easily worth the price.
by GrantVon on 2017/02/19 11:32
First- the app is secure. By that I mean, it doesn't ask your account number or password, so it cannot make any changes or even connect to your TSP account- You have to do the interfund transfers and allocations yourself. This also allows you to use your judgement- if you disagree, you are free to keep your funds where they are. As for the people reviewing saying "It hasn't updated since _____". Yes, it has. The recommended allocations may stay the same for a period of time (just because you can move the funds, doesn't mean you have to). If the market is performing well with a certain allocation, it will show the last date the allocation was recommended. Also- as a subscriber, you get the emails telling you the how/why allocations should change- as well as the "leave it where it is" emails. While I may not always agree with the advice- I would recommend the app. Before the app I had literally put my TSP in two funds (S&I) and left it alone for over 10 years. I did okay, but would have fared better if I had been using TSP tips. The reason for the 4 out of 5 stars is there are a few bugs. The retirement estimate calculator doesn't have the ability to estimate with a pay cap. The graphs are unlabeled, etc- so it is not perfect... But... I would still recommend this app to anyone using TSP.
Updates?
by Needs an update! on 2017/02/15 00:02
No updates since Dec 10, 2016. What's going on??
Why
by 31monks on 2017/02/03 18:13
These guys are not delivering what they are advertising. Biweekly recommendations? Last one was 10 dec...its 2 feb! Well at least you get a 30 day trial...well not really as you are siphoned into buying a subscription instead. Not measuring up at the moment.

I love this app.
by Sdjordje on 2016/10/19 07:46
I have only been using the recommendations for a few month and couldn't be happier. It has given me a greater confidence in my tsp portfolio moving on into the future.
Works well. Need more time.
by Cootpc on 2016/08/27 21:41
I started using the app towards the end of a small market decline. They do seem to anticipate their funds well. Time, and a major drop, will tell about the worthiness of this app.
👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽
by Sun Valley 818 on 2016/07/29 00:06
Awesome app. Must have. I recommend this app to all people who contribute to TSP.
So far, so good...

I've only been following TSP Tips for a few weeks & my funds are all up, several thousand dollars so far... I do subscribe to their newsletter and for $39.99 a year, I'd say it's a bargain... I'll do another review once I've been following for one year and compare this years performance to last years'.
Awesome App
by Sam EP on 2016/07/14 23:38
Why didn't I find this app long ago!? This app has already proven itself to be valuable since day one. In the three weeks I downloaded this app, my TSP balance has grown really well. Of course I understand that there will be downs, but for now, it's all been ups and is really impressing me. Be even turned on some of my coworkers to the app!! Awesome and simple to use and understand.
Marke meatheads
by ShowBizSports on 2016/07/06 18:55
I've been contributing to the g fund for 4 years before I decided to starting using the other funds. This service is good because the allocation updates are also sent to your email and the y provide market summaries to rationalize their advice. The customer service is good too when I needed help. I have a droid but was able to get an account when I put the app on my iPod. That being said I'm still in the red since I started following their allotments in July of last year. The market hasn't performed well since then and the gap is closing each month. If my personal investment performance doesn't get positive by years end I gotta dump them. But it's a good app
Marginally useful at best
by C141medic on 2016/06/25 17:03
I'm writing this review after the major stock market losses as a result of the U.K. Brexit vote. I signed up for the monthly membership expecting to receive some guidance on properly allocating my tsp. What I received was almost little to no guidance. There was no guidance updates whatsoever regarding allocation; especially before, during, and after this particularly volatile time. No news either. Definitely will not renew the paid subscription service when it expires.
TSP Tips
by Tee_Gee on 2016/05/22 13:48

Great app to understand how markets affect TSP!
by PJM21 on 2016/04/10 13:24
This is a great app and the service fee for the information provided is well worth it. If not familiar with how TSP works and you have a question the team is responsive and breaks down why they make the decisions they do. Keep up the good work and continuously improve to stay current.

I've listen to coworkers, who say they know, I tried to match with my wife's advisor, but since I can't pick the funds by name no go I found this advise, it is worth following. I've read through their sites- pretty complex, I give it a go.
Can't use unless you pay
by Americansailor84 on 2016/03/19 21:46
I downloaded the app because of the rave reviews. But after downloading and registering for an account I found out you can't get any tips or numbers unless u pay around $4 for one month or around $35 or so for a full year with a few increments in between. Totally not worth your time unless you decide to pay for the subscription. Not even a trial period to test it out. You have to pay from day one to get any use from this app.
Great app

Buggy App

Been waiting three days for the prices to update. It "estimates" your account value, which seem rather random if compared to the actual amounts. It claims that they will email when allotments change but it changed over the weekend and if I had not gone to the website to check on why there were no updates, I would have missed the newest allotment change. It has a "if you are having trouble email us" feature and so far out of four emails that I have sent I have gotten zero response. Jury is still out on whether or not it improves my returns. I signed on for three months, I'll wait and see.
What happened?
by LeviPettit on 2016/03/13 00:24
App is not keeping me logged in. So now I'm missing notifications. Which are time sensitive. Deleted and re downloaded app. No changes. Help.
I don't write reviews but this app is awesome!
by clekn1 on 2016/02/26 15:19
I've written only one other review for an app many years ago but I felt I should shout from the mountaintop that, if you contribute to TSP, you MUST have the app. The subscription is so worth it. For years I just wanted someone to tell me where I should be moving my money because I am by no means a financial guru. This not only does that but gives you notifications and weekly updates as to how the markets are effecting your money! Get it now!
Where was this app 18 yrs ago??
by Smitty1290 on 2016/01/29 06:38
Been using it for 6 months now, I've seen nothing but gains. Well worth the monthly fee!
Useful!
by Junction D on 2016/01/21 21:00
Haven't lost money even with stocks dropping. That's a good thing.
Not for young folks, but good app
by Dev00 on 2016/01/05 20:28
Used this app for last quarter of 2014 and didn't see any gain. Lost bit more compared to my previous allocations. For people in 30s and 40s, would recommend to stay with the C & S funds as they historically have much higher returns than G or F. But if you plan to retire in near future, then it's worth to subscribe and stay active so to avoid large loss like 2008 :( tips cost of $36/yr is nominal if it can save you thousands in the long run!
I hope it gets better
by Naji007 on 2015/12/27 18:35
So far, seems I've lost funds since following the advice. I understand that the markets have been going through a lot of variables so I hope your advice improves in its return on investments.
Must have for anyone in TSP
by EagleTRL57 on 2015/12/25 06:29
I started using TSP Tips before the recent volatility and was making a lot of progress, but when all the turmoil hit, I have still pretty much stayed even. The app is easy to use, loads quickly and the notifications are timely but few. The only improvement I would make would be a link in the app directly to the TSP home page, but I think I can stand the star step, given the apps performance.
Great app
by Pedro (760) on 2015/12/19 14:41
My tsp has had a better increase with this app.
So far so good
by Datiles on 2015/11/23 01:48
Neat and simple!
Awesome!
by Mattg418 on 2015/11/22 23:48
No where else are you gonna get tips like this. The emails they send notify you of the allocation changes and a brief explanation on why it has changed events leading up to it. Pretty cool if you ask me.
Have TSP? Get this app!
by Chan1689 on 2015/11/06 18:30
If you have a TSP account and you're tired of watching the L funds continually lose your money you have to try this app. You can do three months of tips for short money but I guarantee after a month you will be all in on TSP tips. You can do the research yourself the financial team behind this app is top notch and even in 2008 when everybody lost fortunes they managed to gain marginal profits!
Love this app!!!
by jterchanik on 2015/10/29 00:29
This app is amazing for anyone just learning how to navigate their TSP. The owners actually email and WILL personally respond to all questions sent to them in lamens terms which is extremely helpful. This app and the people involved are amazing and it is worth every cent.
Awesome!
by Sheldonhd on 2015/09/30 12:37
Best TSP app I found on app store
Active participation
by Lazy Onion on 2018/08/21 09:38
I've put money into the various accounts without much thought on how my money was being managed. I looked at my account last fall, after listening to a radio personality discussing the in and outs of the funds with a guest caller. I decided I needed to pay more attention and found this app. I spend more money at my kids football games than I paid for this, so why not. Ive gone from 7% safe growth to just over 13% since October. I know the market is booming now, so time will tell. The app provides a means of tracking, that's all. They send you the emails for any recommendations. I wish it would have a notification for a new recommendation. It works... Aug ‘18 update: I was happy with the app until a recent update. I have an iPhone SE (smaller screen), when updating my balance, the sections to enter my percentages in show “What percentage in ...”. This is completely useless as it asks for a number only. Someone didn’t test this on a smaller device, it’s a mandatory field, so I end up entering 100 in the first row to continue. As for the services they provide, I ran 23% up until Twitter January, now I’m seeing a 8.3% this year. I’m overall happy with my investments.
❤️watching money making money
by RNLucille on 2017/05/23 22:21
I wish I would have found this app sooner. The secret of rich people is that they make money off of their money. This app helps you do that. Just login and make the changes that they suggest and watch your money grow. This year I have seen my account grow by over $500 in five months. I paid for the whole year by buying gift card. So many people are clueless as to what to do with their TSP and their money so sedentary not making money. Check out their website for yearly return rates on their suggested changes within the TSP funds. You will be amazed.
Simple, Easy, Safe
by Engineer_wv on 2018/03/28 00:23
When I started this app they had almost the same figures I had, plus or minus 10% investment [which apparently is a lot] but I'm no stock analyst. It's simple and easy and safe, you still manage the account, they just advise. I'm happy. Update: Looking back four years later, I'm still happy. Granted the market worm has turned but I went from 2-5% on my PIP doing it myself to 12-17% under their advice. Gangbusters! It's worth every cent to have this app. It's no guarantee as nothing in stocks ever is, but they know what they are doing, far better than me.
Annual returns and iPad Version
by bparg11 on 2017/09/16 20:57
Would like to be able to see past annual performance/returns maybe quarterly updates. Then be able to compare those returns to S&P over time. I only have iPad so I would like to see iPad version. There is some clunkyness using iPhone version on pad. I like the weekly updates. Update: I'm still liking the weekly updates. I would like to see the performance of the TIPs though. Yearly and quarterly would be nice. How did TIPs perform in 2016 and how is it performing in 2017? I don't always follow and would like to compare my performance to TIPs
What a bunch of baloney!
by AlasCat on 2017/12/20 16:50
This app is nothing more than a means to get you to sign up for their monthly fees. Don't be fooled. And when they claimed that they made money in 2008 when the economy tanked, let's see some proof. Was this service even in business then? And then there's the reviews. Several different (4&5 star) reviews mention the "nominal" fees. Odd word to have pop up in several different reviews. Sound suspicious to you? Me too. If you don't know enough about timing the markets to shift your investments around, what makes you think that these guys know any more? Because of their undocumented claims and some ginned up reviews on their app? Put your money in the lifecycle funds and go about your life. That's what they're there for.
Excellent!
by AWB607 on 2017/07/29 22:02
I was guessing and foundering before taking the advise of TSP Tips. My account has grown tremendously with the distribution percentages I'm happy to see my TSP grow. This application works great, the advise has been producing results, and the one time I had need to contact the developers they promptly responded. If you're not doing anything with your TSP, then what do you have to lose except to try their advise?? I recommend TSP Tips to all my coworkers.
Pays for itself
by Wlkng dead on 2017/08/08 21:33
In my 6 months of following their recommendations, my PIP has increased from essentially negligible to about 13%. Paying for these recommendations easily pays for itself. My only criticism is with the app itself. The graphs have sudden drop-offs for some times when I didn't update my balance. Sometimes. Other gaps in my balance updating are smoothed. It'd be nice if the graphs smoothed out the missing data instead of dropping it to zero.
Just get it & 👀 your 💲grow!!!
by Zimm79 on 2017/08/19 13:20
I made the mistake of not really investing in TSP until 1/2 way through my career. This app (subscription) has more than paid for itself. I love that any questions/feedback given to the developers is responded to within 24/48 hrs - by the developers/owners themselves!!! I really wish I would have found this app earlier.
Like it
by Reddrumsc on 2017/04/30 22:51
I haven't been with them long enough to make a performance decision. That said, I really like the way that it keeps me involved and checking the markets and my retirement savings weekly. Of course, I don't just listen to one source and my gut is telling me this advice is conservative. Time will tell, but I'll gladly remain a member and I appreciate the effort these fellas put into this app.
Buy and hold Wins
by Duster2027 on 2018/12/02 03:13
I stopped following there advice for two reasons. Their policy of only making changes Monday morning is often too late. Maybe because they do there number crunching on Saturday? Regardless of the market going up or down they always are about a week or two late to the party. I think you are better off with a buy and hold plan or follow the tsptalk website for very good free advice. Most important, maximize your contributions, you can’t afford not to:)
Great Option
by czeller93 on 2019/04/24 13:39
Thoroughly enjoy this app. Has really been beneficial as opposed to randomly placing my money into one fund and letting it grow without knowledge of current markets. I have seen an excellent return, through both market lows and highs. Definitely worth the money!
What's the deal
by King22spade on 2017/09/11 21:22
This app is nice to have just got it so can't really say much as to how well it works. One issue I have is the graph so if I tap say the F fund on the pie chart it will highlight the G fund to right rather than the F fund. This concerns me. Am I allocating my money into the proper fund? Which one is right? The fact that you pay for this app and use it to invest a significant amount of money for your future and it has a issue like that I'm not sure how much I trust it.
Great App
by Johnny Gambit on 2017/07/22 12:30
Investing in TSP can be annoying with only being able to move your funds twice a month and each fund being part of a broader index. This app makes it extremely easy to manage and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to make money in their TSP account.
Discovered bug
by battleryhtym on 2019/03/07 03:37
When trying to update my account balance and setting allocation, the numbers keep going back to 0 after scrolling down or up. Will update review after a few months of advice results and when the bug if fixed.
So far so good
by 10%ormore on 2017/09/16 00:45
I have mostly played it safe in the G fund my whole career. Now that I have found this AP I've been playing around with my funds. Haven't been on very long but will be very happy if I can make just 10%.
Working great for me!
by YorkR&K on 2017/11/29 21:23
It eliminates the guess work for me. I get a push notification telling me where to move my money. The nominal fee is irrelevant to me, I am busy and don't have time to keep up with the market.
I like it so far...
by wildbillfitch on 2017/05/04 04:16
It's hard to tell, I had everything split between S and I, pretty crazy I know but I figured it would average out. I think this will be better than lifecycle...time will tell, I think after a year I can give better insight! Fingers crossed!
Be smart...buy and hold.
by JW12Ace on 2018/07/14 16:46
It's better than leaving your money in G, but that said I found I get way better results being a Buy and Hold investor. You can't constantly time the market....you’ll hit the same as you miss. Stick with your stocks and you'll make money (buy and hold). I’ve tracked my B&H approach for 2 years against these recommendations and average 18% more than this app. Do your research and buy and hold on index funds.
Worth l my subscription fee.
by JetFuelPerfume on 2018/10/25 00:23
I started using TSP Tips in March 2018. They correctly anticipated the downturn in October 2918 and twice moved money out of the C Fund to the G fund just in time. Let’s hope they get the switch back at the correct time too.
Don’t fall for it
by mahmudgh on 2019/01/13 02:27
This is basically an attempt to get you signed up for the monthly exorbitant subscription. The monthly subscription $6 might not sound much to you but it really adds up multiplying that by 12. It’s not worth it because their predictions or projections have been below par, it’s laughable. I will not recommend them look else where for a lower fee and better results.
It's the way to make great returns
by worldtravelerusa on 2017/09/16 20:53
Solid forecasts with excellent forecast models. I have tried others and lost money when they showed profits. This is the real deal! Thanks for the service and advice.
Stop please
by Jay8729 on 2019/04/25 16:21
Hello. I’ve been trying to reach this company for the pass week or so. Sending out a couple of emails explaining that I do not want to use this app anymore and to also please stop charging me. I went so far to even freeze my account. No one has reached back to me and I’m trying to handle this on the lowest level possible. Can someone please contact me back. Thank you
Awesome app
by self made hundredaire on 2017/08/26 21:20
I tend to forget about the TSP, but thanks to tsp tips I have made 17% over the past year. I have been using TSP tips for two years and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
Must-have
by rayner07 on 2017/11/03 23:34
From a skeptic, this app has done nothing but impress me. Great developers, great results--as long as you understand downloading the app won't materialize money for you.
Outstanding app!
by Saettelbags on 2017/07/10 11:18
While using TSP Tips, I've averaged a 12% return on my TSP account the past 2 years - pretty remarkable! I would recommend this app to anyone.
Gaining Confidence
by arbncwgrl on 2017/08/21 01:13
While I am still learning to invest in the market this app has allowed me to spread my wings but at this point I am not ready to invest full at ur recommendations. Would appreciate strategies for the learning investor!
Simply wonderful!

I have been looking for a more aggressive investment opinion then the tsp lifecycle funds, and this is it. If you like aggressive growth advice this is your app.

The Best
by Jon1022 on 2017/05/20 05:23
If you are trying to get the most out of your TSP investment this is a must. Always above the normal rate of return.
Waste of money
by Cesarddiaz on 2017/11/02 10:45
The data they provide is literally available all over the Internet for free. Even the TSP website offers education. Educate yourself on your money and future, don’t pay someone else to do the thinking for you.
Best, greatest!!!

Just read the post by AlasCat posted Dec 20th 2017. Why do you think there are LifeCycle funds??
Easily worth the price.
by GrantVon on 2017/02/19 11:32
First- the app is secure. By that I mean, it doesn't ask your account number or password, so it cannot make any changes or even connect to your TSP account- You have to do the interfund transfers and allocations yourself. This also allows you to use your judgement- if you disagree, you are free to keep your funds where they are. As for the people reviewing saying "It hasn't updated since _____". Yes, it has. The recommended allocations may stay the same for a period of time (just because you can move the funds, doesn't mean you have to). If the market is performing well with a certain allocation, it will show the last date the allocation was recommended. Also- as a subscriber, you get the emails telling you the how/why allocations should change- as well as the "leave it where it is" emails. While I may not always agree with the advice- I would recommend the app. Before the app I had literally put my TSP in two funds (S&I) and left it alone for over 10 years. I did okay, but would have fared better if I had been using TSP tips. The reason for the 4 out of 5 stars is there are a few bugs. The retirement estimate calculator doesn't have the ability to estimate with a pay cap. The graphs are unlabeled, etc- so it is not perfect... But... I would still recommend this app to anyone using TSP.
Awesome App
by angelito2383 on 2014/09/20 13:50
Using TSP Tips has been awesome so far. With all the chaos going on in the world TSP Tips have been able to minimize the loss and still remain overall on constant upward slope. The app is easy to use and understand. Any questions you have: they will answer! Best purchase I've made this year. No one can predict the market: many people get worried as they see the sudden decline in share price. You have to remember to stick it out. It will always recover: it's a proven fact. If you're that worried then keep your money in the G fund! It will stay on a slow steady upward slope. However Risk equals reward.

by The Woodrow on 2018/11/06 03:07
I started using the app in June 2018, albeit not as assiduously as I did in July. Previously I followed Dave Ramsey’s 60/20/20 for C/S/I. In October I moved my funds per app suggestions and saved 9000$, avoiding the majority(40-85%) of the market volatility. That’s 150yrs of paying for the app.
Worth l my subscription fee.
by JetFuelPerfume on 2018/10/25 00:23
I started using TSP Tips in March 2018. They correctly anticipated the downturn in October 2918 and twice moved money out of the C Fund to the G fund just in time. Let’s hope they get the switch back at the correct time too.

I've put money into the various accounts without much thought on how my money was being managed. I looked at my account last fall, after listening to a radio personality discussing the in and outs of the funds with a guest caller. I decided I needed to pay more attention and found this app. I spend more money at my kids football games than I paid for this, so why not. Ive gone from 7% safe growth to just over 13% since October. I know the market is booming now, so time will tell. The app provides a means of tracking, that's all. They send you the emails for any recommendations. I wish it would have a notification for a new recommendation. It works... Aug ‘18 update: I was happy with the app until a recent update. I have an iPhone SE (smaller screen), when updating my balance, the sections to enter my percentages in show “What percentage in ...”. This is completely useless as it asks for a number only. Someone didn’t test this on a smaller device, it’s a mandatory field, so I end up entering 100 in the first row to continue. As for the services they provide, I ran 23% up until Twitter January, now I’m seeing a 8.3% this year. I’m overall happy with my investments.
Overall satisfied, needs some polish.
by Iron1mike on 2018/08/16 20:00
Recent issue with updates, likely a server issue, overall good experience with tsptips. Auto balance updates needs some tweaking. No option to specify traditional or Roth contributions. Allocation changes submitted over the weekend are not fully processed until Tuesday morning by tsp.gov. Would like to see some more robust future planning calculators. These can be found elsewhere, but convenience is important. Been a subscriber for two years and will continue to be. Just hope improvements become a factor of importance in the cuter

Be smart...buy and hold.
by JW12Ace on 2018/07/14 16:46
It's better than leaving your money in G, but that said I found I get way better results being a Buy and Hold investor. You can't constantly time the market....you’ll hit the same as you miss. Stick with your stocks and you'll make money (buy and hold). I’ve tracked my B&H approach for 2 years against these recommendations and average 18% more than this app. Do your research and buy and hold on index funds.

Baloney!!!
by BustTheCrap on 2018/03/28 01:07
Just read the post by AlasCat posted Dec 20th 2017. Why do you think there are LifeCycle funds??
Simple, Easy, Safe
by Engineer_wv on 2018/03/28 00:23
When I started this app they had almost the same figures I had, plus or minus 10% investment [which apparently is a lot] but I'm no stock analyst. It's simple and easy and safe, you still manage the account, they just advise. I'm happy. Update: Looking back four years later, I'm still happy. Granted the market worm has turned but I went from 2-5% on my PIP doing it myself to 12-17% under their advice. Gangbusters! It's worth every cent to have this app. It's no guarantee as nothing in stocks ever is, but they know what they are doing, far better than me.
What a bunch of baloney!
by AlasCat on 2017/12/20 16:50
This app is nothing more than a means to get you to sign up for their monthly fees. Don't be fooled. And when they claimed that they made money in 2008 when the economy tanked, let's see some proof. Was this service even in business then? And then there's the reviews. Several different (4&5 star) reviews mention the "nominal" fees. Odd word to have pop up in several different reviews. Sound suspicious to you? Me too. If you don't know enough about timing the markets to shift your investments around, what makes you think that these guys know any more? Because of their undocumented claims and some ginned up reviews on their app? Put your money in the lifecycle funds and go about your life. That's what they're there for.
Working great for me!
by YorkR&K on 2017/11/29 21:23
It eliminates the guess work for me. I get a push notification telling me where to move my money. The nominal fee is irrelevant to me, I am busy and don't have time to keep up with the market.
Must-have
by rayner07 on 2017/11/03 23:34
From a skeptic, this app has done nothing but impress me. Great developers, great results--as long as you understand downloading the app won't materialize money for you.
Waste of money
by Cesarddiaz on 2017/11/02 10:45

Annual returns and iPad Version
by bparg11 on 2017/09/16 20:57
Would like to be able to see past annual performance/returns maybe quarterly updates. Then be able to compare those returns to S&P over time. I only have iPad so I would like to see iPad version. There is some clunkyness using iPhone version on pad. I like the weekly updates. Update: I'm still liking the weekly updates. I would like to see the performance of the TIPs though. Yearly and quarterly would be nice. How did TIPs perform in 2016 and how is it performing in 2017? I don't always follow and would like to compare my performance to TIPs
It's the way to make great returns
by worldtravelerusa on 2017/09/16 20:53
Solid forecasts with excellent forecast models. I have tried others and lost money when they showed profits. This is the real deal! Thanks for the service and advice.
So far so good
by 10%ormore on 2017/09/16 00:45
I have mostly played it safe in the G fund my whole career. Now that I have found this AP I've been playing around with my funds. Haven't been on very long but will be very happy if I can make just 10%.
What's the deal
by King22spade on 2017/09/11 21:22
This app is nice to have just got it so can't really say much as to how well it works. One issue I have is the graph so if I tap say the F fund on the pie chart it will highlight the G fund to right rather than the F fund. This concerns me. Am I allocating my money into the proper fund? Which one is right? The fact that you pay for this app and use it to invest a significant amount of money for your future and it has a issue like that I'm not sure how much I trust it.
Awesome app
by self made hundredaire on 2017/08/26 21:20
I tend to forget about the TSP, but thanks to tsp tips I have made 17% over the past year. I have been using TSP tips for two years and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.

by Zimm79 on 2017/08/19 13:20
I made the mistake of not really investing in TSP until 1/2 way through my career. This app (subscription) has more than paid for itself. I love that any questions/feedback given to the developers is responded to within 24/48 hrs - by the developers/owners themselves!!! I really wish I would have found this app earlier.
Pays for itself
by Wlkng dead on 2017/08/08 21:33
In my 6 months of following their recommendations, my PIP has increased from essentially negligible to about 13%. Paying for these recommendations easily pays for itself. My only criticism is with the app itself. The graphs have sudden drop-offs for some times when I didn't update my balance. Sometimes. Other gaps in my balance updating are smoothed. It'd be nice if the graphs smoothed out the missing data instead of dropping it to zero.
Excellent!
by AWB607 on 2017/07/29 22:02
I was guessing and foundering before taking the advise of TSP Tips. My account has grown tremendously with the distribution percentages I'm happy to see my TSP grow. This application works great, the advise has been producing results, and the one time I had need to contact the developers they promptly responded. If you're not doing anything with your TSP, then what do you have to lose except to try their advise?? I recommend TSP Tips to all my coworkers.
Information
by Stigalbc on 2017/07/27 13:30
It gives me the information I need to access the best fund at the time. I would love to see annual and monthly trends of best funds!!
Horrible returns!!
by starmont36 on 2017/07/26 17:59
Since this app launched here are the annual returns that it has given you: 2014=0.45%, 2015=(-3.90%), 2016=5.67%. Plus they post more IFT's per month than what is allowed by the TSP. With these horrible returns you'd be better off buying and holding any of the funds because they all beat it.
Great App
by Johnny Gambit on 2017/07/22 12:30
Investing in TSP can be annoying with only being able to move your funds twice a month and each fund being part of a broader index. This app makes it extremely easy to manage and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to make money in their TSP account.
Great Returns so far!
by AirForce Capt on 2017/07/16 15:43
Before I got this app I was averaging about 6-8% return on my TSP. I've had TSP tips for about a year and a half and am averaging 13.49% return since following TSP Tips. The cost was very inexpensive for the returns I've had so far. Definitely recommend!
Outstanding app!
by Saettelbags on 2017/07/10 11:18
While using TSP Tips, I've averaged a 12% return on my TSP account the past 2 years - pretty remarkable! I would recommend this app to anyone.
Simply wonderful!

❤️watching money making money
by RNLucille on 2017/05/23 22:21
I wish I would have found this app sooner. The secret of rich people is that they make money off of their money. This app helps you do that. Just login and make the changes that they suggest and watch your money grow. This year I have seen my account grow by over $500 in five months. I paid for the whole year by buying gift card. So many people are clueless as to what to do with their TSP and their money so sedentary not making money. Check out their website for yearly return rates on their suggested changes within the TSP funds. You will be amazed.
The Best
by Jon1022 on 2017/05/20 05:23

by Reddrumsc on 2017/04/30 22:51
I haven't been with them long enough to make a performance decision. That said, I really like the way that it keeps me involved and checking the markets and my retirement savings weekly. Of course, I don't just listen to one source and my gut is telling me this advice is conservative. Time will tell, but I'll gladly remain a member and I appreciate the effort these fellas put into this app.

by GrantVon on 2017/02/19 11:32
First- the app is secure. By that I mean, it doesn't ask your account number or password, so it cannot make any changes or even connect to your TSP account- You have to do the interfund transfers and allocations yourself. This also allows you to use your judgement- if you disagree, you are free to keep your funds where they are. As for the people reviewing saying "It hasn't updated since _____". Yes, it has. The recommended allocations may stay the same for a period of time (just because you can move the funds, doesn't mean you have to). If the market is performing well with a certain allocation, it will show the last date the allocation was recommended. Also- as a subscriber, you get the emails telling you the how/why allocations should change- as well as the "leave it where it is" emails. While I may not always agree with the advice- I would recommend the app. Before the app I had literally put my TSP in two funds (S&I) and left it alone for over 10 years. I did okay, but would have fared better if I had been using TSP tips. The reason for the 4 out of 5 stars is there are a few bugs. The retirement estimate calculator doesn't have the ability to estimate with a pay cap. The graphs are unlabeled, etc- so it is not perfect... But... I would still recommend this app to anyone using TSP.

These guys are not delivering what they are advertising. Biweekly recommendations? Last one was 10 dec...its 2 feb! Well at least you get a 30 day trial...well not really as you are siphoned into buying a subscription instead. Not measuring up at the moment.

I'll do another review once I've been following for one year and compare this years performance to last years'.
Awesome App
by Sam EP on 2016/07/14 23:38
Why didn't I find this app long ago!? This app has already proven itself to be valuable since day one. In the three weeks I downloaded this app, my TSP balance has grown really well. Of course I understand that there will be downs, but for now, it's all been ups and is really impressing me. Be even turned on some of my coworkers to the app!! Awesome and simple to use and understand.
Marke meatheads
by ShowBizSports on 2016/07/06 18:55
I've been contributing to the g fund for 4 years before I decided to starting using the other funds. This service is good because the allocation updates are also sent to your email and the y provide market summaries to rationalize their advice. The customer service is good too when I needed help. I have a droid but was able to get an account when I put the app on my iPod. That being said I'm still in the red since I started following their allotments in July of last year. The market hasn't performed well since then and the gap is closing each month. If my personal investment performance doesn't get positive by years end I gotta dump them. But it's a good app
Marginally useful at best
by C141medic on 2016/06/25 17:03
I'm writing this review after the major stock market losses as a result of the U.K. Brexit vote. I signed up for the monthly membership expecting to receive some guidance on properly allocating my tsp. What I received was almost little to no guidance. There was no guidance updates whatsoever regarding allocation; especially before, during, and after this particularly volatile time. No news either. Definitely will not renew the paid subscription service when it expires.

Can't use unless you pay
by Americansailor84 on 2016/03/19 21:46
I downloaded the app because of the rave reviews. But after downloading and registering for an account I found out you can't get any tips or numbers unless u pay around $4 for one month or around $35 or so for a full year with a few increments in between. Totally not worth your time unless you decide to pay for the subscription. Not even a trial period to test it out. You have to pay from day one to get any use from this app.
Great app

Buggy App
by belbozts on 2016/03/13 13:47
Been waiting three days for the prices to update. It "estimates" your account value, which seem rather random if compared to the actual amounts. It claims that they will email when allotments change but it changed over the weekend and if I had not gone to the website to check on why there were no updates, I would have missed the newest allotment change. It has a "if you are having trouble email us" feature and so far out of four emails that I have sent I have gotten zero response. Jury is still out on whether or not it improves my returns. I signed on for three months, I'll wait and see.
What happened?

by clekn1 on 2016/02/26 15:19
I've written only one other review for an app many years ago but I felt I should shout from the mountaintop that, if you contribute to TSP, you MUST have the app. The subscription is so worth it. For years I just wanted someone to tell me where I should be moving my money because I am by no means a financial guru. This not only does that but gives you notifications and weekly updates as to how the markets are effecting your money! Get it now!
Where was this app 18 yrs ago??

Not for young folks, but good app
by Dev00 on 2016/01/05 20:28
Used this app for last quarter of 2014 and didn't see any gain. Lost bit more compared to my previous allocations. For people in 30s and 40s, would recommend to stay with the C & S funds as they historically have much higher returns than G or F. But if you plan to retire in near future, then it's worth to subscribe and stay active so to avoid large loss like 2008 :( tips cost of $36/yr is nominal if it can save you thousands in the long run!
I hope it gets better
by Naji007 on 2015/12/27 18:35
So far, seems I've lost funds since following the advice. I understand that the markets have been going through a lot of variables so I hope your advice improves in its return on investments.
Must have for anyone in TSP
by EagleTRL57 on 2015/12/25 06:29
I started using TSP Tips before the recent volatility and was making a lot of progress, but when all the turmoil hit, I have still pretty much stayed even. The app is easy to use, loads quickly and the notifications are timely but few. The only improvement I would make would be a link in the app directly to the TSP home page, but I think I can stand the star step, given the apps performance.

No where else are you gonna get tips like this. The emails they send notify you of the allocation changes and a brief explanation on why it has changed events leading up to it. Pretty cool if you ask me.
Have TSP? Get this app!
by Chan1689 on 2015/11/06 18:30
If you have a TSP account and you're tired of watching the L funds continually lose your money you have to try this app. You can do three months of tips for short money but I guarantee after a month you will be all in on TSP tips. You can do the research yourself the financial team behind this app is top notch and even in 2008 when everybody lost fortunes they managed to gain marginal profits!
Love this app!!!
by jterchanik on 2015/10/29 00:29
This app is amazing for anyone just learning how to navigate their TSP. The owners actually email and WILL personally respond to all questions sent to them in lamens terms which is extremely helpful. This app and the people involved are amazing and it is worth every cent.

Ive gone from 7% safe growth to just over 13% since October. I know the market is booming now, so time will tell. The app provides a means of tracking, that's all. They send you the emails for any recommendations. I wish it would have a notification for a new recommendation. It works... Aug ‘18 update: I was happy with the app until a recent update. I have an iPhone SE (smaller screen), when updating my balance, the sections to enter my percentages in show “What percentage in ...”. This is completely useless as it asks for a number only. Someone didn’t test this on a smaller device, it’s a mandatory field, so I end up entering 100 in the first row to continue. As for the services they provide, I ran 23% up until Twitter January, now I’m seeing a 8.3% this year. I’m overall happy with my investments.
❤️watching money making money
by RNLucille on 2017/05/23 22:21
I wish I would have found this app sooner. The secret of rich people is that they make money off of their money. This app helps you do that. Just login and make the changes that they suggest and watch your money grow. This year I have seen my account grow by over $500 in five months. I paid for the whole year by buying gift card. So many people are clueless as to what to do with their TSP and their money so sedentary not making money. Check out their website for yearly return rates on their suggested changes within the TSP funds. You will be amazed.
Simple, Easy, Safe
by Engineer_wv on 2018/03/28 00:23
When I started this app they had almost the same figures I had, plus or minus 10% investment [which apparently is a lot] but I'm no stock analyst. It's simple and easy and safe, you still manage the account, they just advise. I'm happy. Update: Looking back four years later, I'm still happy. Granted the market worm has turned but I went from 2-5% on my PIP doing it myself to 12-17% under their advice. Gangbusters! It's worth every cent to have this app. It's no guarantee as nothing in stocks ever is, but they know what they are doing, far better than me.
Annual returns and iPad Version
by bparg11 on 2017/09/16 20:57
Would like to be able to see past annual performance/returns maybe quarterly updates. Then be able to compare those returns to S&P over time. I only have iPad so I would like to see iPad version. There is some clunkyness using iPhone version on pad. I like the weekly updates. Update: I'm still liking the weekly updates. I would like to see the performance of the TIPs though. Yearly and quarterly would be nice. How did TIPs perform in 2016 and how is it performing in 2017? I don't always follow and would like to compare my performance to TIPs
What a bunch of baloney!
by AlasCat on 2017/12/20 16:50
This app is nothing more than a means to get you to sign up for their monthly fees. Don't be fooled. And when they claimed that they made money in 2008 when the economy tanked, let's see some proof. Was this service even in business then? And then there's the reviews. Several different (4&5 star) reviews mention the "nominal" fees. Odd word to have pop up in several different reviews. Sound suspicious to you? Me too. If you don't know enough about timing the markets to shift your investments around, what makes you think that these guys know any more? Because of their undocumented claims and some ginned up reviews on their app? Put your money in the lifecycle funds and go about your life. That's what they're there for.
Excellent!
by AWB607 on 2017/07/29 22:02
I was guessing and foundering before taking the advise of TSP Tips. My account has grown tremendously with the distribution percentages I'm happy to see my TSP grow. This application works great, the advise has been producing results, and the one time I had need to contact the developers they promptly responded. If you're not doing anything with your TSP, then what do you have to lose except to try their advise?? I recommend TSP Tips to all my coworkers.
Pays for itself
by Wlkng dead on 2017/08/08 21:33
In my 6 months of following their recommendations, my PIP has increased from essentially negligible to about 13%. Paying for these recommendations easily pays for itself. My only criticism is with the app itself. The graphs have sudden drop-offs for some times when I didn't update my balance. Sometimes. Other gaps in my balance updating are smoothed. It'd be nice if the graphs smoothed out the missing data instead of dropping it to zero.
Just get it & 👀 your 💲grow!!!
by Zimm79 on 2017/08/19 13:20
I made the mistake of not really investing in TSP until 1/2 way through my career. This app (subscription) has more than paid for itself. I love that any questions/feedback given to the developers is responded to within 24/48 hrs - by the developers/owners themselves!!! I really wish I would have found this app earlier.
Like it
by Reddrumsc on 2017/04/30 22:51
I haven't been with them long enough to make a performance decision. That said, I really like the way that it keeps me involved and checking the markets and my retirement savings weekly. Of course, I don't just listen to one source and my gut is telling me this advice is conservative. Time will tell, but I'll gladly remain a member and I appreciate the effort these fellas put into this app.
Buy and hold Wins
by Duster2027 on 2018/12/02 03:13
I stopped following there advice for two reasons. Their policy of only making changes Monday morning is often too late. Maybe because they do there number crunching on Saturday? Regardless of the market going up or down they always are about a week or two late to the party. I think you are better off with a buy and hold plan or follow the tsptalk website for very good free advice. Most important, maximize your contributions, you can’t afford not to:)
Great Option
by czeller93 on 2019/04/24 13:39
Thoroughly enjoy this app. Has really been beneficial as opposed to randomly placing my money into one fund and letting it grow without knowledge of current markets. I have seen an excellent return, through both market lows and highs. Definitely worth the money!
What's the deal
by King22spade on 2017/09/11 21:22
This app is nice to have just got it so can't really say much as to how well it works. One issue I have is the graph so if I tap say the F fund on the pie chart it will highlight the G fund to right rather than the F fund. This concerns me. Am I allocating my money into the proper fund? Which one is right? The fact that you pay for this app and use it to invest a significant amount of money for your future and it has a issue like that I'm not sure how much I trust it.
Great App
by Johnny Gambit on 2017/07/22 12:30
Investing in TSP can be annoying with only being able to move your funds twice a month and each fund being part of a broader index. This app makes it extremely easy to manage and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to make money in their TSP account.
Discovered bug
by battleryhtym on 2019/03/07 03:37
When trying to update my account balance and setting allocation, the numbers keep going back to 0 after scrolling down or up. Will update review after a few months of advice results and when the bug if fixed.
So far so good
by 10%ormore on 2017/09/16 00:45
I have mostly played it safe in the G fund my whole career. Now that I have found this AP I've been playing around with my funds. Haven't been on very long but will be very happy if I can make just 10%.
Working great for me!
by YorkR&K on 2017/11/29 21:23
It eliminates the guess work for me. I get a push notification telling me where to move my money. The nominal fee is irrelevant to me, I am busy and don't have time to keep up with the market.
I like it so far...
by wildbillfitch on 2017/05/04 04:16
It's hard to tell, I had everything split between S and I, pretty crazy I know but I figured it would average out. I think this will be better than lifecycle...time will tell, I think after a year I can give better insight! Fingers crossed!
Be smart...buy and hold.
by JW12Ace on 2018/07/14 16:46
It's better than leaving your money in G, but that said I found I get way better results being a Buy and Hold investor. You can't constantly time the market....you’ll hit the same as you miss. Stick with your stocks and you'll make money (buy and hold). I’ve tracked my B&H approach for 2 years against these recommendations and average 18% more than this app. Do your research and buy and hold on index funds.
Worth l my subscription fee.
by JetFuelPerfume on 2018/10/25 00:23
I started using TSP Tips in March 2018. They correctly anticipated the downturn in October 2918 and twice moved money out of the C Fund to the G fund just in time. Let’s hope they get the switch back at the correct time too.
Don’t fall for it
by mahmudgh on 2019/01/13 02:27
This is basically an attempt to get you signed up for the monthly exorbitant subscription. The monthly subscription $6 might not sound much to you but it really adds up multiplying that by 12. It’s not worth it because their predictions or projections have been below par, it’s laughable. I will not recommend them look else where for a lower fee and better results.
It's the way to make great returns
by worldtravelerusa on 2017/09/16 20:53
Solid forecasts with excellent forecast models. I have tried others and lost money when they showed profits. This is the real deal! Thanks for the service and advice.
Stop please
by Jay8729 on 2019/04/25 16:21
Hello. I’ve been trying to reach this company for the pass week or so. Sending out a couple of emails explaining that I do not want to use this app anymore and to also please stop charging me. I went so far to even freeze my account. No one has reached back to me and I’m trying to handle this on the lowest level possible. Can someone please contact me back. Thank you
Awesome app
by self made hundredaire on 2017/08/26 21:20
I tend to forget about the TSP, but thanks to tsp tips I have made 17% over the past year. I have been using TSP tips for two years and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
Must-have
by rayner07 on 2017/11/03 23:34
From a skeptic, this app has done nothing but impress me. Great developers, great results--as long as you understand downloading the app won't materialize money for you.
Outstanding app!
by Saettelbags on 2017/07/10 11:18
While using TSP Tips, I've averaged a 12% return on my TSP account the past 2 years - pretty remarkable! I would recommend this app to anyone.
Gaining Confidence
by arbncwgrl on 2017/08/21 01:13
While I am still learning to invest in the market this app has allowed me to spread my wings but at this point I am not ready to invest full at ur recommendations. Would appreciate strategies for the learning investor!
Simply wonderful!
by imyou on 2017/07/10 06:04
I have been looking for a more aggressive investment opinion then the tsp lifecycle funds, and this is it. If you like aggressive growth advice this is your app.

It gives me the information I need to access the best fund at the time. I would love to see annual and monthly trends of best funds!!
I like it
by Doc Debakey on 2017/04/25 19:13
I like this app. I don't know much about investing especially in the TSP so this helps me place my money where it should be.
The Best
by Jon1022 on 2017/05/20 05:23
If you are trying to get the most out of your TSP investment this is a must. Always above the normal rate of return.
Waste of money
by Cesarddiaz on 2017/11/02 10:45
The data they provide is literally available all over the Internet for free. Even the TSP website offers education. Educate yourself on your money and future, don’t pay someone else to do the thinking for you.
Best, greatest!!!
by Watch it everyday on 2017/10/14 23:17
Been followed for almost two years now, average 15% gain!
Great App

I wish I had found it sooner.
Reset password

I forgot my password and every time I click “forgot password” it kicks me out of the app and won’t let me in. Find this extremely useless

Happy with the results so far.
So far so good.

Baloney!!!
by BustTheCrap on 2018/03/28 01:07
Just read the post by AlasCat posted Dec 20th 2017. Why do you think there are LifeCycle funds??
Easily worth the price.
by GrantVon on 2017/02/19 11:32
First- the app is secure. By that I mean, it doesn't ask your account number or password, so it cannot make any changes or even connect to your TSP account- You have to do the interfund transfers and allocations yourself. This also allows you to use your judgement- if you disagree, you are free to keep your funds where they are. As for the people reviewing saying "It hasn't updated since _____". Yes, it has. The recommended allocations may stay the same for a period of time (just because you can move the funds, doesn't mean you have to). If the market is performing well with a certain allocation, it will show the last date the allocation was recommended. Also- as a subscriber, you get the emails telling you the how/why allocations should change- as well as the "leave it where it is" emails. While I may not always agree with the advice- I would recommend the app. Before the app I had literally put my TSP in two funds (S&I) and left it alone for over 10 years. I did okay, but would have fared better if I had been using TSP tips. The reason for the 4 out of 5 stars is there are a few bugs. The retirement estimate calculator doesn't have the ability to estimate with a pay cap. The graphs are unlabeled, etc- so it is not perfect... But... I would still recommend this app to anyone using TSP.
Awesome App
by angelito2383 on 2014/09/20 13:50
Using TSP Tips has been awesome so far. With all the chaos going on in the world TSP Tips have been able to minimize the loss and still remain overall on constant upward slope. The app is easy to use and understand. Any questions you have: they will answer! Best purchase I've made this year. No one can predict the market: many people get worried as they see the sudden decline in share price. You have to remember to stick it out. It will always recover: it's a proven fact. If you're that worried then keep your money in the G fund! It will stay on a slow steady upward slope. However Risk equals reward.
Buggy App
by belbozts on 2016/03/13 13:47
Been waiting three days for the prices to update. It "estimates" your account value, which seem rather random if compared to the actual amounts. It claims that they will email when allotments change but it changed over the weekend and if I had not gone to the website to check on why there were no updates, I would have missed the newest allotment change. It has a "if you are having trouble email us" feature and so far out of four emails that I have sent I have gotten zero response. Jury is still out on whether or not it improves my returns. I signed on for three months, I'll wait and see.
I don't write reviews but this app is awesome!
by clekn1 on 2016/02/26 15:19
I've written only one other review for an app many years ago but I felt I should shout from the mountaintop that, if you contribute to TSP, you MUST have the app. The subscription is so worth it. For years I just wanted someone to tell me where I should be moving my money because I am by no means a financial guru. This not only does that but gives you notifications and weekly updates as to how the markets are effecting your money! Get it now!
Must have for anyone in TSP
by EagleTRL57 on 2015/12/25 06:29
I started using TSP Tips before the recent volatility and was making a lot of progress, but when all the turmoil hit, I have still pretty much stayed even. The app is easy to use, loads quickly and the notifications are timely but few. The only improvement I would make would be a link in the app directly to the TSP home page, but I think I can stand the star step, given the apps performance.
