Refer Friends to Chime for a Chance to Win $1,000!1

Summer can be an expensive season for splurging, so we’re giving away some fun money to help make your summer dreams come true.

You could win $1,000 when your friends open a new Chime Account by 11:59 pm PT on August 22, 2019! Winners who are Chime members will receive a $1,000 deposit to their Chime Spending Account while winners who are non-members will get a $1,000 Amazon.com virtual gift card.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Share your unique referral link.
  2. Until 11:59pm PT on August 22, 2019, you’ll get an automatic entry into the Summer Funds Sweepstakes each time someone opens a new Chime Spending Account with your link.
  3. Repeat for up to 5 entries!

Automatic entries will be accepted until 11:59 PM PT on August 22, 2019. See below for alternate method of entry.

Share now for a chance to win!* Ten lucky winners will be randomly chosen to win $1,000 each.

You Can Still Earn $50 Per Referral

As always, you and your friend will both get $50 when they open an account with your link and receive a direct deposit of $200 or more within 45 days!2

2In order for both parties (the referred friend and the referring Chime member) to qualify for and receive the $50.00 referral reward, the following conditions must be met: The referred friend must open a new Chime Spending Account using the referring Chime member’s unique referral link after August 1, 2019 and receive a payroll direct deposit of $200.00 or more within 45 days from when the Chime Spending Account was opened. The payroll direct deposit of the referred friend must be made by their employer, payroll provider or payer by an ACH deposit. Bank ACH transfer, Pay Friends transfers, verification or trial deposits from financial institutions, transfers from PayPal or Venmo, mobile check deposits, and cash loads or deposits do not qualify as a payroll direct deposit. Referring Chime member must be part of the $50.00 for Payroll Direct Deposit referral reward campaign in order for both parties to be eligible for the $50.00 referral reward. The referral reward is paid to both parties within two business days after qualifying funds are first deposited into the referred friend’s Spending Account. Eligible referring Chime members can earn no more than $1000.00 in referral rewards per calendar year (January 1, 2019 – December 31, 2019). Referred friend acknowledges that payment of the referral reward may result in the referring Chime member’s knowledge of you establishing an account with us. Chime reserves the right to cancel or modify the referral reward terms, or terminate the member’s eligibility, at any time with or without prior notice. Credits of $600 or more must be reported on tax form 1099-MISC.
