Hey, Chime & Cash App users!

Good news…

YES, you can use your Chime account with Cash App.

Who doesn’t like making life easier by being able to use Cash App to send or receive money? I know I do.

Even better, it’s really pretty simple to set up too.

And…

You have 2 ways of linking your Chime account.

One way I recommend over the other (I’ll explain why below).

In the following post, I’ll show you how to link your account both ways and everything else you need to know when it comes to using Chime with Cash App.

If you have Chime, you may be wondering if you can use it with Cash App.

When using Chime to your Cash App using Cash App itself, you have two different ways you can do so.

Below, I will show you how to do both ways.

To link Chime to Cash App using your Chime debit card:

  • Step 1: Open Cash App and log in to your account.
  • Step 2: Tap on your profile icon in the top right corner of Cash App.
Tap on the profile icon in the top right corner
Tap on the profile icon in the top right corner
  • Step 3: Scroll down and tap on “Linked Banks”.
Tap on "Linked Banks"
Tap on “Linked Banks”
  • Step 4: Tap on “Link Debit Card” and enter your Chime debit card information.
This is where you link your Chime debit card in Cash App.

To link Chime to Cash App using your Chime account (WITHOUT using your Chime debit card):

  • Step 1: Open Cash App and log in to your account.
  • Step 2: Tap on your profile icon in the top right corner of Cash App.
Tap on your Cash App profile icon
Tap on your Cash App profile icon
  • Step 3: Scroll down and tap on “Linked Banks”.
Tap on "Linked Banks"
Tap on “Linked Banks”
  • Step 4: Tap on “Link Debit Card”.
  • Step 5: Tap on “No Card?” and then tap “Continue” on the message that pops up (after reading it of course).
Tap on “No Card?”
  • Step 6: In the search bar at the top search for “Chime” and then tap on it.

This is what you should see when you search for Chime in Cash App.
  • Step 7: Enter your Chime login credentials to link your Chime account with Cash App using Plaid.

Which Linking Method Do I Recommend?

The choice is yours (obviously)…

I recommend NOT using your Chime debit card to link with Cash App and instead suggest you just directly link it to your Chime account (the 2nd method shown above).

Why?

Simple. If your Chime debit card number changes (because it expires or you misplace it), then you’ll have to remember to update your card info in Cash App.

Otherwise, it won’t work.

If you link it directly, then you won’t have to worry about it.

You can no longer link your Cash App account to Chime from within the Chime app.

Before you were able to link them by adding your Cash App debit card (aka Cash Card) to Chime but this no longer works.

All is not lost though.

You CAN still use Chime with Cash App and it’s still easy to set up.

YES!

You can use your Chime account to link with Cash App so are able to send and receive money easily and efficiently.

I showed you step by step exactly how in the section above (if you missed it).

Ensuring Everything is Properly Linked

It’s ALWAYS a good idea to test things out before you really need to use them, and that’s especially true when linking two financial apps like Chime and Cash App.

The easiest way…

Send a small amount of money (like $1) from your Chime account to Cash App.

Once the transfer is complete, try sending it back to your Chime account from Cash App.

If everything transfers over as expected, then you’re all set.

BUT if something goes wrong, at least you’ll know before you’re in the middle of a transaction and need to scramble to figure out what the issue might be.

So take a few minutes to test things out now and save yourself some headaches later.

Why is My Chime Debit Card Not Supported on Cash App?

It’s frustrating when you’re trying to use your Chime debit card with Cash App and you get a not-supported message.

In most cases, it’s just a matter of double-checking the card information you entered into Cash App.

But if you’re sure you didn’t make a mistake, there are a few other things that could be going on.

It’s possible your Chime card is somehow blocked, or that the Cash App itself needs to be updated. Another possibility is that Cash App and/or Chime are currently down.

If you’re still having trouble, try contacting Cash App support and/or Chime support to see if they can help figure out what’s going on.

How long Does it Take to Transfer Money?

If you’re like most people, you probably use a variety of different apps to manage your finances.

While there are many great options out there, Cash App and Chime are two of the most popular.

But what if you want to transfer funds from one to the other?

Luckily, it’s pretty easy to do. In some cases, the transfer is instant.

However, if it isn’t, you can expect the funds to appear in your Chime account within 1-3 business days.

So whether you’re looking to cash out or just move some money around, transferring money from Cash App to Chime is a breeze.
