What’s better than having a Chime online bank account with no hidden fees, automatic savings, early payday with direct deposit¹, daily balance notifications, a super simple and easy-to-use app…(we really could go on and on here, but you get the point)? How about a metal debit card to match the awesomeness of your Chime account? Introducing the Limited-Edition Metal Chime Visa® Debit Card.
When we say limited edition, we mean it. We’re only giving away 5,000 cards until March 15, 2019, or while supplies last. Get 5 new friends to sign up and open a Chime Spending Account for a chance to upgrade to some new bling² . Trust us, it’s worth it.
How Do I Get A Metal Card?
Good question! It’s pretty simple, but you should probably act fast. All you need to do is invite 5 people to sign up for Chime and have them open a Spending Account. That’s it. That’s like your mom, your dad, your BFF, your S.O. and your co-worker. Done. You also know from experience that signing up takes about two minutes or less, so they won’t be going out of their way to get started.
Referred friends or family that opened a new Chime account prior to today unfortunately will not count towards the Metal Card.
We’ll be sending you emails keeping track of how close you are to qualifying for the Metal Card.
Tell Me More About This New Bling
Our Limited-Edition Metal Chime Visa® Debit Card is made from the fusion of a durable stainless steel core and PVC. Your individual card number and name will be laser-etched on the back of the card. We really took our time in creating a card that not only looks incredibly sleek, but also feels premium in your hand.
Until your Metal Card arrives, your current Chime Visa® Debit Card will remain active.
Will Getting A New Metal Card Interfere With The Chime Card I Already Have?
Yes. Your CVV and expiration date will change, but your actual debit card number will remain the same. So please be aware that you may have to update your card information with merchants to ensure auto-payments and recurring payment activity continues uninterrupted!
Also note that the moment you activate your new metal card, your old Chime debit card will no longer work. You should destroy and dispose your old Chime card to protect your payment details, and avoid any card confusion.
Can I Pay For A Metal Card Instead Of Referring People?
Unfortunately, the Metal Card is a limited promotion only available to Chime members who refer 5 or more friends to open a new Chime Spending Account between February 11, 2019 and March 15, 2019. We appreciate the enthusiasm and are always looking for better ways to provide the best experience, so feel free to provide feedback on our social channels or via email!
Fun Fact: Your Friends Can Enroll In Direct Deposit To Qualify Both Of You For The $50 Bonus³
Pretty sweet, right? If the friends you invited enroll in direct deposit and receive a deposit of $200 or more within 45 days of signing up, you both get $50 each as a bonus.³ So you could potentially add an extra $250 to your Limited Edition Metal Chime Visa Debit Card.
¹ Early access to direct deposit funds depends on timing of payer’s submission of deposits. We generally post such deposits on the day they are received which may be up to 2 days earlier than the payer’s scheduled payment date.
