Are you getting nowhere with the usual channels at Sallie Mae? Here’s how you can reach their Customer Advocate Unit, a charming oasis of competence and politeness.

That number is: 888-545-4199.

“No hold time. No annoying menus. Fast, courteous service,” writes tipster Bob. They do not, however, offer customer bailouts. We can only wish.
