No doubt Chime has been in the buzz since its launch. It is one of the most reliable mobile banks with over 13 million users, making banking a painless experience.

Chime is still hard to grasp for many users who’ve only used the app to manage their money. If you want to know how to see your Chime balance without an app, you’re in the right spot.

When someone downloads an app, especially a banking app, the most common use of it is to view a balance.

What is Chime’s running balance?

Balance is the amount of money your spending and savings account holds. It’s the money you can withdraw, transfer, pay bills or shop online using a debit or credit card. In fact, without such a balance, there is no meaning in opening a bank account.

Whether it’s Chime or any other bank app, you need to load your debit card or bank account to use the services that your financial institution offers. When you set up a direct deposit, your payroll provider deposits funds to your checking account, that’ll also reflect in your Chime balance.

There are three types of Chime balance you can view 

Checking account –

The Chime active debit card is associated with a checking account, not a savings account. This means the balance will be visible in your checking account whenever your direct deposit hits or when someone cashes a check or transfers money. It’s the balance you don’t want to hold or save.

Savings account –

In a Savings account, you save money by earning interest and in money round-ups. It’s an optional account you can open if you want to save money automatically for a rainy day or any other cause.

However, you’ve to fund your savings account through your checking or spending account since there is no direct way to transfer cash to your savings.

Credit builder –

It’s a line of credit that Chime offers for free for members who receive $200 or more in direct deposits. You need to transfer funds from your spending account and spend on your Chime credit card to grow your credit score.

Your on-time payments are reported to the major credit bureaus whenever you spend with your credit builder card, wherever a Visa is accepted.
