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.

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

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.
Linking Chime Bank to Cash App
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.

The Easiest Way to Ensure Chime and Cash App are Linked Properly

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.

How to Send Money Using Cash App with Your Chime Account

When you have Cash App open on your iPhone or Android device, the process for sending money is pretty straightforward.

You can either type in the name or phone number of the person you’re sending money to, or you can tap on the plus sign in the bottom right corner of the app and then find them from your contacts list.

Once you’ve selected the person you’re sending to, enter the amount you want to send and then hit “Next”.

You’ll then need to confirm that the information is correct, and after that, you’re done!

The money will be sent instantly and will arrive in the other person’s account almost immediately.

Are There Limits to How Much Money I Can Send or Receive With Cash App and Chime?

Cash App is a great way to send and receive money, but there are limits on how much you can send and receive if your account is unverified.

For unverified accounts, the maximum amount you can send per week is $250 while the maximum you can receive is $1,000 within 30 days.

If you need to send or receive more money than that, you’ll need to verify your account.

To do that, you’ll need to provide some personal information and link your Cash App account to a bank account or debit card.

Once your account is verified, there are no limits on how much you can send or receive.

So if you’re sending or receiving a lot of money, make sure your Cash App account is verified to avoid any limits.

How long Does it Take to Transfer Money from Chime to Cash App?

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.

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.

Why Do People Use Cash App with Chime?

Cash App is a popular money-transferring app because it’s convenient, easy to use, and free.

It’s also a great way to invest in stocks and Bitcoin.

And unlike some other money-transferring apps, Cash App has no limits on how much you can send or receive (once your Cash App account is verified).

So if you’re looking for an easy way to transfer money, Cash App is a great option. Just be sure to verify your account if you’re sending or receiving a lot of money, to avoid any limits.

And remember, Cash App is not FDIC-insured, so there’s no guarantee that you’ll get your money back if something goes wrong.

But overall, Cash App is a convenient and popular way to transfer money.

What’s the Difference Between Chime and Cash App?

Chime and Cash App are both popular financial apps.

But what’s the difference between the two?

For one, Chime is a financial app while Cash App is a money-transferring app that many people use to send money.

That means that with Chime, you can do things like open a savings account or get a debit card.

With Cash App, you can transfer money to other people or request money from others.

Another difference is that Chime has a fee-free ATM network while Cash App does not.

That means you can use your Chime debit card at any ATM without paying a fee.

With Cash App, you’ll have to pay a fee if you use an ATM that’s not in the Cash App network.
