What is Chime?

Chime is an online bank like Sofi or Ally. They are an online bank that provides checking accounts, savings accounts, and credit cards for its customers. It was founded on the premise that basic banking services should be helpful, easy, and free. That’s why their model doesn’t rely on an overdraft, monthly service, minimum balance, or other consumer fees. They partner with regional banks to create a more competitive market with better, lower-cost options for everyday Americans who aren’t being served well by traditional banks.

Chime Spend Account

The benefits that you get when you have your checking account with them include:

  • No monthly maintenance fees
  • No minimum balance fees
  • 60,000 fee-free ATMs at Walgreens, CVS, and more
  • Fee-free overdrafts on up to $200

The benefits that you get when you have your checking account with them include:

  • Earn 0.50% interest on your money (Note: This interest rate is subject to change at any time)
  • No minimum balance or other fees
  • Similar to investment app Acorn, they have “round-up” feature to help you save your spare change whenever you spend
  • Similar to the investment app Qapital, they also have a feature to help you automatically save your money whenever you get paid.

Chime Credit Card

They also offer their own credit builder to help people build their own credit. Technically, even though it is a credit card and it does help you build your credit, it works similarly to a debit card. You can transfer money from your Chime Spend account to your credit-builder account, then you can make all of your regular purchases, and finally, you pay for all the purchases with money that you moved over from the spending account.

  • no minimum deposit needed like with secured cards
