What is Chime?
At Chime, we’ve created a new approach to online banking that doesn’t rely on fees2 , gets you your paycheck up to 2 days early with direct deposit1 , and helps you grow your savings automatically. When you open a bank account through Chime, you get a Visa Debit Card® and a Checking Account that can be managed entirely from your smartphone, plus an optional Savings Account that helps you grow your savings automatically! The Chime mobile banking app is available on both Android and iOS.
Chime is a financial technology company, not a bank. Banking services provided by The Bancorp Bank, N.A. or Stride Bank, N.A.; Members FDIC.
What is Chime's mission?
Our mission is to make financial peace of mind a reality for everyone. We’re doing that by changing the way people feel about banking. Chime’s business was built on the principle of protecting our members and making managing your money easy. We’ll never profit from your misfortune or mistakes and everything we build is focused on improving our member’s lives.
Who can use Chime?
U.S. Citizens 18 years and older are welcome to apply! While Chime cards work all over the world, currently we can only offer accounts to members with a valid SSN, living in the United States and District of Columbia.
How does Chime make money?
Chime makes money from the interchange fee charged on card transactions. Every time you use your Chime Visa® Debit Card or Credit Builder Secured Credit Card for purchases and paying bills, Visa processes the transaction and charges an interchange fee to merchants for the service. Chime receives a portion of this fee. This is how Chime can continue building new and better products that help members get the most from their money.
When do I receive my Chime Visa Debit Card after I open a Chime Checking Account?
After you open a Checking Account, we get started on personalizing your new Chime Visa Debit Card. Your Chime Visa Debit Card is usually placed in the mail within one (1) business day after you open your Checking Account. It can take 5 to 10 business days for your Chime Visa Debit Card to arrive at your home address.
If you don’t have your Chime Visa Debit Card within 10 business days after opening your Checking Account, please contact our Member Services team at: email@example.com
Does Chime charge any fees?
We don’t believe in unnecessary fees or profiting from our members’ misfortune. We have no fees to sign up, no overdraft, no monthly or service fees, no minimum balance fees, no transaction fees, and no card replacement fees either. We do charge one fee ($2.50) when you get cash from either an over the counter withdrawal, or an out-of-network ATM that is not part of Chime’s fee-free network of 60,000+ ATMs
Please note that third-party services, such as money transfer services used to deposit funds or out of network ATM used to withdraw funds to your Chime Checking Account may impose their own fees per transaction.
How many ATMs accept the Chime debit card?
You can get cash at more than 60,000+ fee-free ATMs – more than the top 3 national banks combined! Including ATMs at popular retail stores like Walgreens®, CVS®, 7-Eleven®, Circle K, and Target®.
Get fee-free transactions at any Moneypass ATM in a 7-Eleven location and at any Allpoint or Visa Plus Alliance ATM. Otherwise, out-of-network ATM withdrawal fees may apply.

* SpotMe/Fee-Free Overdraft Chime SpotMe is an optional, no fee service that requires a single deposit of $200 or more in qualifying direct deposits to the Chime Checking Account each month and Visa debit card activation. All qualifying members will be allowed to overdraw their account up to $20 on debit card purchases and cash withdrawals 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. Although there are no overdraft fees, there may be out-of-network or third party fees associated with ATM transactions. SpotMe won't cover non-debit card transactions, including ACH transfers, Pay Anyone transfers, or Chime Checkbook transactions. See terms and conditions.
^ Early Payday/Get Paid Up to Two Days Early 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.
~ Fee-Free ATMs Get fee-free transactions at any MoneyPass ATM in a 7-Eleven location or at any Allpoint or Visa Plus Alliance ATM. Otherwise, out-of-network ATM withdrawal fees may apply.
1 Credit Builder To apply for Credit Builder, you must have received a single qualifying direct deposit of $200 or more to your Checking Account. The qualifying direct deposit must be from your employer, payroll provider, gig economy payer, or benefits payer by Automated Clearing House (ACH) deposit OR Original Credit Transaction (OCT). Bank ACH transfers, Pay Anyone transfers, verification or trial deposits from financial institutions, peer to peer transfers from services such as PayPal, Cash App, or Venmo, mobile check deposits, cash loads or deposits, one-time direct deposits, such as tax refunds and other similar transactions, and any deposit to which Chime deems to not be a qualifying direct deposit are not qualifying direct deposits.
2 Credit Score Increase based on a representative study conducted by Experian®, members who made their first purchase with Credit Builder between June 2020 and October 2020 observed an average FICO® Score 8 increase of 30 points after approximately 8 months. On-time payment history can have a positive impact on your credit score. Late payment may negatively impact your credit score.
3 Security Deposit Money added to Credit Builder will be held in a secured account as collateral for your Credit Builder card, which means you can spend up to this amount on your card. This is money you can use to pay off your charges at the end of every month.
