4 Reasons You’ll Feel More Zen with the New Chime App

Just in time for Labor Day weekend, we’ve updated our mobile banking app so you don’t have to labor so hard over your finances. Here are some of the changes that we hope will help you feel zen and find inner peace on your journey to better financial health.

Understand the past (with new transaction details)
Ever scratch your head when reviewing all that spending you did over the weekend and have trouble recognizing a transaction? Now when you open the Chime app, the Spending Account home screen gives you more info about each purchase in your transaction history including monthly spending trends, as well as the merchant’s address and website for major retailers and restaurants.

Stay balanced (with enhanced transaction alerts)
Transaction alerts now display your current Spending Account balance in addition to the transaction info. Think of how much energy you’ll save opening the app to view your balance that you can channel into opening your chakras instead.

Create flow (with in-app bank linking)
Need to transfer funds from another bank account? Now you can link a bank account in the app. Go to Transfers under Move MoneySettings, tap “Link a Bank Account”, choose from one of the 14 major banks listed and enter your other bank’s login credentials. You can then initiate a transfer between your Chime Spending Account and the linked bank account. It’s a super easy way to transfer funds from your existing bank account to Chime for free, and you can do it from your yoga mat.

Find answers (in our new Help Center)
We’ve also spruced up the Chime Help Center to make it easy to find answers to frequently asked questions faster than you can say oooooommmmmm. You’ll find a link to the Help Center under Settings > Support.

We look forward to hearing what you think of these changes. Namaste.
