All qualifying members will be allowed to overdraw their account up to $20 on debit card purchases initially, but may be later eligible for a higher limit of up to $200 or more based on member's Chime Account history, direct deposit frequency and amount, spending activity and other risk-based factors. Your limit will be displayed to you within the Chime mobile app. You will receive notice of any changes to your limit. Your limit may change at any time, at Chime's discretion.

^Early access to direct deposit funds depends on the timing of the submission of the payment file from the payer. We generally make these funds available on the day the payment file is received, which may be up to 2 days earlier than the scheduled payment date.
¹To be eligible to apply for Credit Builder, you need to have received a qualifying direct deposit of $200 or more to your Spending Account within 365 days of your Credit Builder application. See chime.com/applycb for detail on qualifying direct deposit.
²Based on a representative study conducted by TransUnion®, members who started using Chime Credit Builder in September 2019 observed a median credit score (VantageScore 3.0) increase of 30 points by January 2020. On-time payment history can have a positive impact on your credit score. Late payment may negatively impact your credit score.
Hey—what if the bugs that try to get into our app are like the contestants on Squid Game? OK, hear me out. You’re a bug, down on it’s luck. And along comes this other bug in a suit. He says how you can improve your bug life by signing up for this game, but once you get there, it’s bonkers. Other bugs are getting “eliminated'' left and right. Chaos everywhere. I don’t know how the show ends, but in the Chime version, no bug remains unsquashed. GREEN LIGHT! (That means go update your app.)
Ratings and Reviews
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!!
amazing if you live paycheck to paycheck
i switched to chime because simple bank became bbva. getting my paycheck a couple days early and not being able to overdraft were what drew me. the credit builder account was a surprise to me and i love it. i have poor credit and this is such an easy way to build credit.
the BEST part of the app for me though is that when i get paid it direct deposits to my credit builder account and i have all my bills taken out of that. so when i get paid i look at what will need to be paid that paycheck and i put fun money in my spending account. it’s a lifesaver if you’re prone to dip into bill money. if you overdraft on your spending account, spot me will cover it up to $20 off the bat (tried and true, my friends), and it WILL NOT pull from credit builder or savings. because i live paycheck to paycheck i don’t really have a savings account, but i do use their round-up feature. you’ll be surprised how quickly you save with it. it’s really helping me get my financial situation together.
it can be really hard to find a bank or budgeting app that works well for people who live paycheck to paycheck (makes me feel so dumb that i can’t budget for a whole month), but CHIME IS IT FOR ME. Seriously, give them a chance. Customer service is great, too.
I don’t write reviews but I want to thank Chime for no only being an amazing app & bank account but most importantly being there at a crucial time in my life. Long story short, I lost everything & literally had to rebuild my life life I just out of high school. My credit went bad, I got scammed which destroyed my bank account & had nothing left but a few boxes of clothes & knickknacks. When I finally got my bearings back, started a new job, opening up a back account was not possible at the time & I had a job where they only did direct deposit. I was screwed or so I thought. A friend told about Chime & after checking it out & signing up I instantly had a back account & a few days later my card. If it wasn’t for chime being around I don’t know what my story would look like now. I have deposited checks through both the camera features & at designated banks. They recently just added a credit builder credit card to help rebuild my credit. I’ve been with them for over a year now & love everything about them. The app is extremely user friendly & the one time I had to call customer service they were kind & helpful. So without a doubt I recommend Chime for any banking needs & Thank You Chime for being there when I thought all was lost.
