Very happy customer! Even though there is no stand-alone bank, I have had an excellent experience with Chime. 1) I like getting paid early 2) No overdraft fees, love the Spotme feature 3) Ease of use 4) I love that I view my card in the app, it sounds lazy, but I’m tired of pulling out my card every time I want to buy something online (lol). 5) I love that my mom and I both got $50 when she referred me to sign up for an account. What an awesome referral program for everyone. 6) You can turn your debit card transactions on/off with the click of an app. (I forget to turn it back on sometimes! I’ve embarrassed myself at a store a time or two.) Also, there are many ATM locations near me that are free of charge. I like that I can “round-up” to save if I’d like, or set 10% of my direct deposit aside. Chime has been compatible with PayPal and Apple Pay to send money to people. With that being said, I use cash at most restaurants / gas stations / stores, I don’t like my card number being out there. I had debit card fraud with my old bank account. I have not had that incident happen with chime and I hope that it never does. Not revenant to the app or bank- but cashiers at the store always say the card is a cute color lol.
The best bank I’ve ever used!
I have been using Chime for years now. My favorite things about this service are spotme (lets you spend 20 dollars past your 0 balance to hold you over in a pinch) sms notifications (texts you whenever money is spent - perfect for tracking automatic payments that come out randomly!) and the UI (easy to read menu/ overall transparency. I have it set up with direct deposit so I get my money 2 days earlier than my co-workers. I can transfer money from this account to any of my other accounts (credit union, PayPal, Venmo) with no fees. I’m just blown away. Haven’t had an overdraft fee since I started using chime. I tell all my friends about it and I hope chime grows to change the way we manage all financial aspects of our lives. I would love a feature that acts as a savings account but locks the money in until you have reached your goal amount. I tend to transfer my savings to my checking regularly but end up with no money at the end of the week. Would love to not have the option to spend my savings! Overall great bank - 5 stars - will continue using for the foreseeable future! Why can’t every bank be like this?
Best decision I was forced to make!!
Unfortunately due to a career loss, having to start over and struggling financially for 3 years I had no other choice but to file bankruptcy. I was told by my legal counsel that the bank account I had would potentially freeze my limited funds because one of my credit cards was linked to my checking. They encouraged me to seek a new checking account so I could maintain what money I had. Because my credit was now poor, I was denied by two other banks a checking account. Most big banks now run your credit along with Check Systems to deem you a desirable customer. I researched my options and found Chime on a tech blog. I’m so very glad I found it! It is no frills checking and savings with a super simple app. It’s a traditional debit card in every sense. It’s Visa so you can use it virtually anywhere! Get cash back with groceries. Tons of ATM’s through money pass with NO fees! I know it may not be for everyone, but if you are sick of big banks and all their fees and tactics, I encourage you to give Chime a try. I’m very grateful to have an option like Chime. It saved me a lot of grief at a time when I’m already feeling insurmountable pressure.
