Where Can I Load My Chime Card 24 Hours?
Unfortunately, there aren't many 24/7 options for loading your Chime card. Most retailers who handle Chime reloads have set operating hours, typically closing sometime in the evening and remaining shut until the next morning. However, there are a few limited options available for loading your Chime card 24/7.
Here are the options I found:
- Walmart MoneyCenter: Some select Walmart locations have 24/7 MoneyCenter kiosks where you can load your Chime card. However, this feature isn't available everywhere, so you'll need to check if your local Walmart has it.
- Pilot Flying J: Not all Pilot Flying J locations are open 24/7, but some are. If you find one that is, they typically offer Chime reloads through their cashiers.
It's important to note that these 24/7 options may not be available at all locations, so it's best to check with the specific retailer near you to confirm their operating hours and services.
How Do I Add Money To My Chime Account Without The Card?
The best way to add money to your Chime account without using the card itself is to receive money from another Chime user. You can look for a Chime user around and give them physical cash in exchange for a Chime-to-Chime transfer to your account.
This way is more convenient and faster than loading money to your Chime account without the card itself through an external bank account.
Chime is a financial services company that has partnered with a couple of retailers to allow the customer to manage their finances conveniently.
Chime lets you load money to your Chime card at any Walgreens and Duane Reade store location nationwide for free. Nonetheless, you can add money to your Chime card at many other partner locations including, Walmart, 7-Eleven, Speedway, CVS, and many others—but this comes with some costs.
