Can I make purchases before receiving my Chime card?

Until your new card arrives, you can make purchases and pay bills online with your temporary digital card. To find it in your Chime app:

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Tap Account Settings.
  3. Tap View temporary card.

Your temporary card and physical card numbers will match once you receive and activate your new physical card. You won’t be able to use your temporary card after activating your new physical card.

Here are some other ways you can access your money and make purchases while waiting for your new card:

Pay Anyone transfers

Use the Pay Anyone tab in your app to transfer money to friends.

Chime Checking Account and routing numbers

Link your Chime Account to Venmo, Zelle, PayPal, or Square Cash apps using your Chime Checking Account number and routing number, or use them to set up direct debit payments to merchants or billers.

Go to Settings and find your account number and routing numbers under Account info.

ACH transfers

Use the Move Money tab in your app to do an outbound ACH transfer to a linked external bank account.

Mail a check

Use the Move Money tab in your app to mail a paper check to a merchant or biller anywhere in the U.S.
