Several of my coworkers use apps or services that allow them to receive their paycheck early. (i.e. Get paid on the 29th of the month instead of the 31st) They are always gushing to me about how nice they are but I feel like I'm missing something? The apps don't shorten your pay period, they just shift the dates? So if you get paid every two weeks you're still getting paid every two weeks, it's just a different two week period than the rest of your coworkers? What is the virtue of these apps then?
