I LOVE CHIME
I have banked with suntrust and Wells Fargo through my early financial years I started banking and I was 15 I believe under a joined account with my mom after being a irresponsible kid and over drawing my account countless time paying fee after fee I was tired of regular banks and that’s where chime came in they are absolutely amazing cute little features like telling me my balance in the morning with emojis 😹actually allowing for overdraft with a feature called spot me it allow you to overdraft up to$75 with no fees for when your like one day away from payday and you need some gas to get to work or just a extra cup of coffee to get your morning going chime literally has your back I would definitely recommend the app to any young people who want to start banking that may not have a lot of experience budgeting, saving , or spending money in a bank account they send you a card that is compatible with Apple Pay which makes it so convenient and user friendly their customer service line is always responsive and very nice if I had to change one thing with chime it would be to add a feature to be able to search for through your transactions and maybe add Zelle to the app or a feature that would allow me money directly from my bank account to other people who don’t have a chime account without having to use cashapp or PayPal other than that they are doing totally awesome
Pretty good, takes too long to transfer money though
I really do like this app. I am one that hates banks and how they allow accounts to go over then charge people overdraft fees. It’s literally taking money from people who have none and that should be a crime. Chime doesn’t do that and they actually do prioritize their customers. I think this is a revolutionary app for banking. I hope it picks up traction and changes how banking is done completely.
The direct deposit is fantastic. You do get your money early thanks to Chime and it definitely helps. They also have the “round up & save” feature for people who struggle to save money.
My only problem with it is that it takes far too long to transfer money. Like a week to transfer. And they have a very small daily limit for transferring (like $200). It can become frustrating when I’m trying to budget my money by separating bill money from spendable money. They keep saying it’s just the banking system, and I know they must have to make some sacrifices in order to be able to provide such great services without all the fees banks drop on us. I just wish there were options to pay a fee for an instant transfer to your bank like Venmo or Ca$h App. I’m sure with increased popularity eventually somewhere along the line of updates will be an option for instant transfers. It just doesn’t exist now.
I LOVE this Bank!!
I have been with Chime for quite some time now and let me tell ya, when I say they are amazing... THEY ARE AMAZING!! I was with a Credit Union for a little while and they told me I was set up with an account that I couldn’t over draft in... yet every payday I was magically some odd amount in the negative. It NEVER failed! Then, I decided to give Chime a chance and see what happened. NOT ONLY do they not charge fees but they have this really cool setting that makes it SUPER easy to
save called “Round Up” and basically what that does is every time you add money to your account it saves a percentage of that amount. Which is BEYOND helpful. It does the same when you spend money as well, except, it rounds up to the next dollar amount I believe. Their customer support via Phone/Email is FANTASTIC! The workers are so sweet and helpful and anytime I’ve had to call they fixed what ever I needed! I’ve only had to call them twice and neither were to complain but to figure out something or get an answer to a question I didn’t know.
I’m not gonna lie, at first I thought it was a scam, or just another ad on FB... but I am honestly SO happy that I switched. If it wasn’t for them my taxes would’ve already been fully spent and most of it in fees 😂 I HIGHLY recommend dumping your physical bank and joining Chime. It’s worth it... I PROMISE!!
