Yes, the Chime Credit Card is a secured credit card. This means that this card requires a refundable security deposit, which Chime holds as collateral until the account is closed. The minimum amount you can deposit to your Chime Spending Account is $200*.
Keep in mind that the Chime Credit Card can also help you build or rebuild your credit, just like a normal credit card. This card reports monthly to all three major credit bureaus; Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion.
There is no pre-set starting credit limit for the Chime Credit Card. The credit limit for this card depends on the money you decide to move into your Credit Builder Secured account. Chime only gives a maximum credit limit for this credit card, which is $10,000.
Although the Chime Credit Card is a secured card, it doesn’t require a minimum security deposit. But your spending limit equals the amount that you transfer from your Chime Spending Account to your Credit Builder Secured account.
Keep in mind that the minimum amount you can deposit to your Chime Spending Account is $200.
Ultimately, it is worth noting that Chime allows you to increase your security deposit for a higher credit line. You can move money to your Credit Builder Secured account whenever you want.
