AskNow is one of the most popular psychic reading websites in the United States, but how good is it really? After reading hundreds of AskNow reviews and signing up for the website myself, I break down all pros and cons of the business for you below, as well as pricing and special features.

AskNow Overview

Since 2005, Asknow.com has been one of the most popular psychic websites, situated at the pinnacle of the spiritual world. According to other AskNow psychic reviews, it is a legitimate website that connects you with highly rated psychic advisors who specialize in a variety of fields. Some user reviews discuss encounters with psychics who were not a good match, as well as those who gave dubious advice; AskNow has addressed this issue by encouraging users to use the website’s filter feature to find psychics who meet personal requirements for the best AskNow experience.

What Is AskNow and How Does It Work?

Thousands of people seeking spiritual guidance are guided by AskNow’s network of credentialed spiritual readers. AskNow offers a wide selection of gifted psychic advisors, from tarot readers to astrologers, with up to 35+ years of experience at various rates. Besides their website, AskNow also has an app.

For new clients, the first session comes with an introductory package of 5 free bonus minutes plus a $1 per minute rate. With multiple ways of access, psychics are easily reached.

AskNow Main Features 

When I first started researching this service, I could immediately tell that they had a wide psychic network of gifted psychic advisors. AskNow offers three tiers of psychics: Top Rated Advisors ($3.99–$9.99/min), Elite Advisors ($10.00–$12.99/min), and Master Advisors ($13/min and up).

This is a lot more than similar websites charge, and some AskNow.com reviews have said that the price is too steep. According to their website, AskNow tests their psychics to ensure that they have sharp spiritual abilities every 4-6 months. After selecting one of their best psychic readings and an advisor, if a user is unsatisfied with the service, they can contact customer relations and receive 5 free bonus minutes for their next session. My first impression of the sign-up process was that it was very easy to navigate if you have a credit card; However, if you only have a debit card, you need to contact customer service.

Types of Readings

Experts at AskNow have psychic readings in 9 different categories, including:

Money & Finance

Psychics in this field will help you sort out problems related to money and finance, as well as point out your personal career forecast.

Love & Relationship

Experts on love and relationships will answer any questions about romance and family. They can communicate about anything between ex-boyfriends, ex-girlfriends, potential soulmates, and other related topics.

Astrology Readings

Astrologers use the positions of the planets from when you were born, now, and the future to describe general life patterns as well as particular events that will affect you.

AskNow Horoscope

What’s amazing is that you can check the option and start recovering their daily horoscope readings on your email free of charge.

Dream Interpretation

Experts look at symbols in your dreams to see if they can provide you with input stemming from your subconscious.

Feature Description Rating
Types of readings AskNow offers 9 types of readings, which is a bit of a smaller selection to other alternatives. 4/5

Matching process Users can sort by advisor type, category, or price before deciding whether they want to call immediately or schedule an appointment. 5/5
Ease of use Two-step sign-up process and easy-to-navigate interface. 5/5

According to other AskNow reviews, psychics have to maintain a 4 to 5-star rating to stay an AskNow psychic. In addition to a detailed background screening process, they examine their psychics to ensure that they are able to continue practicing with the company.

You can choose a psychic from a list on their homepage, or go to the Psychics tab and sort by advisor type, category, or price. Once you’ve chosen an available advisor, press the “Call” button to speak with them over the phone, or the “Chat” button to connect with them online.

Some people make a mistake and book a session, but what they need is an online session with a therapist. Think about what you need before you pay for a session.

Ease Of Use 

While doing research for this AskNow review, I gathered the screenshots of the signup process, which is very easy to go through.

Screenshot_1

The two-step sign-up process is simple to fill out. All you need to do is choose a package and then enter your personal information. Regardless of whatever bundle you select, the rates are about $1 per minute—you get 20 minutes for $20, 30 minutes for $30, 40 minutes for $40, and so on.

Screenshot_2

If you only own a prepaid or debit card, AskNow customer service requires you to enroll in a package deal through them. If you own a credit card, however, you can sign up straight away on your own and access your order. AskNow accepts Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express.

AskNow Pricing 

The main advantage of AskNow over other competitors is the great introductory package they provide for new clients.

(Afterwards, the prices do get a bit steep).

First call price Free minutes Rate per minute Discounts Money back guarantee
$1 per minute with introductory offer + 5 free minutes with a Master Psychic. 5 free minutes for a first reading with Master Psychics. Depends on the category. AskNow offers bundle deals on specific types of readings. If unsatisfied, you get an extra 5 minutes of credit for another reading.

There is a part of the website where you can send a free question to AskNow psychic. All you have to do is to select the category of the question such as money, tarot, romance, and astrology (in which case you should probably provide your birth date and your first name).

AskNow Reviews And Ratings

According to other AskNow psychic reviews, the psychic advisors they have on their website are legit and professional. On their website, most of their ratings average between 4 and 5 stars, with a few 3-star ratings sprinkled in as well. However, on TrustPilot, AskNow customer service can at times be misleading with their introductory package, and some first-time users have ended up paying a lot more than they bargained for with their first session.

AskNow Alternatives 

In this AskNow review, I wanted to provide you with a comparison table with three competitors, so that you can see what suits you the most.

Oranum Kasamba  Psychic Source
They advertise several packages ($27.99 – $97.99) and offer $9.99 in free credit when you sign up. An introductory package of 3 free minutes for each new psychic tried by users. New users have 3 free minutes for their first session.
Doesn’t offer phone readings. Psychics work by phone, chat, and email, but don’t use video. Psychics work by phone, chat, and video, but sometimes the communication channels get mixed up.
Best for observing what a session looks like via Livestream without actually paying. Best for trying out different psychics with 3 free minutes. Best for people who want to try out psychic readings for an affordable price.

AskNow is unique in that they help users communicate with psychics quickly. Their service is one-click calling for the phone; online, you can wait in line for a psychic who is unavailable or request a callback.

Where AskNow Falls Short

Expensive Elite and Master advisors.

After much research, AskNow.com reviews generally agree that AskNow is a great choice for people who want to communicate with psychics with many years of experience, as well as those who want to try out professional psychics at the Elite or Master level.

Is AskNow Worth It? 

AskNow’s website and app are easy to use and navigate. The business has a long history, and their network includes some exceptionally gifted and talented psychics. According to AskNow reviews, the majority of these advisors are legitimate and trustworthy.
