It’s ok!


If your looking for a mobile bank this is what I recommend. I have tried other ones and so far this is the one I have stuck with. I get paid two days early, wich I love. The app is great and easy to work. I did have an issue with withdrawing money from an ATM machine at US BANK, which is where I go withdraw cash from. I withdrew $400 it gave them to me with that transaction I chose “Print Receipt” so I found out the limit to withdraw is $500. I then started to withdraw $100 more I chose “Not to Print a Receipt” bad idea because then the machine sounded like it was pulling the money and it was ready to dispense. When I get an error message on the screen saying “There was an error dispensing my money to please call my financial institution.” Which I did I called them they asked me for the receipt number which I didn’t have because I chose not to print a receipt. If I had a receipt they could of helped me faster. What happened next was they filed a dispute. I had to print out some forms, fill them out and fax them to them. Then it took 15 business days for them to review and finally credit me back those $100. The good thing is I did get my money back it just took some time.

Definitely getting there


Update: changed my review to four stars. Would have been three but they’ve expanded support for other banks since my last review. Disappointed that you can’t do a 10% automatic savings on direct deposits lower than $500, I don’t have my entire check deposited to Chime, so that will never be an option for me. More importantly though, I’m extremely disappointed you can’t mobile deposit checks from other bank accounts that you own as a way of transferring money. No other bank account I’ve owned has had that restriction. To send money from my other checking account would be 1-5 business days to verify the account and then probably another few days for the money to transfer. I hope they change this.

I love getting my paycheck early and the round up feature, but it's not compatible with a lot of banks and apps. I can't link it with my local credit union. Stash, venmo, PayPal all say it's not supported so it's kind of hard to use it as your main checking account. Hopefully they expand their support with other institutions soon.

Certain things are ok


I’ll start by saying I do NOT like the chime bot at all. It doesn’t know the answer to anything I ask and can only take questions/phrases that are like 2 words long, which is useless most of the time. I type customer service and it asks if I’m sure I want to talk to an agent and I say yes and it still does nothing. I literally have to search through answers on the web and ask other people that have the app and have done ridiculous searching themselves, about whatever my problem is and it still barely gets answered. Other than that, it’s pretty useful and you can use it for all the things that normal prepaid debit cards can’t be used for. I don’t like that I can’t see more than 3 recent transactions though because sometimes I like to see them to make sure I’m not getting over charged for anything, but I don’t know that unless I sit there and monitor my balance and use a calculator to do the math. I guess I can say the actual card and account itself is useful, but the app is completely useless.
