How do I open a Savings Account?
When you open your Chime Spending Account, you are presented with an option to open your Savings Account. If you choose to open your Savings Account at a later time, you can always do so at your convenience. Use the Chime mobile app or your online account and visit the Savings screen for instructions.
How do I close my Savings Account?
If you want to close your Savings Account, contact our Member Services team at email@example.com or call 1-844-244-6363.
Keep in mind that once you close your Savings Account, your funds are immediately transferred to your Spending Account. Federal law states that once your Savings Account is closed, you will not be able to re-open your Savings Account for 90 days.
Is there interest on a Chime Savings Account?
The current interest rate and Annual Percentage Yield (APY) for the Chime Savings Account is .01%. Chime helps you grow your savings through our Automatic Savings program. We round up the transaction amount to the nearest dollar and transfer it from your Spending Account to your Savings Account.
What’s the APY for Savings?
The average APY for most banks is around 1%. This means that at other banks, you would need to have an average balance of over $40,000 throughout the year to reach our savings bonus. We reward you for spending, not for having a lot of money in your Savings Account.
