Yes, you can pay your Chase credit card with a debit card linked to any open checking account in your name. Chase’s payment options page also says you can transfer money directly from a linked checking account rather than using a debit card. In general, you can make Chase payments online, by phone, by mail or at a branch. You can’t pay online or by mail with a debit card, though.
Here’s how to pay your Chase credit card with a debit card:
- You can pay your Chase credit card bills with a debit card by calling customer service at (800) 432-3117. You’ll have to verify your name, address and last four digits of your SSN. You’ll then have to provide the 16-digit number on the debit card, the expiration date and three-digit security code. You’ll also need the routing number to the linked checking account. You can also visit a local Chase Bank branch and pay in person.
- Online or phone payments made from midnight to 8 p.m. Eastern time will be credited and posted to your account the same day; on Saturdays your payment will post to your account Sunday evening. Payments made from 8 p.m. up until midnight Eastern Time will be credited and posted the same day; on Fridays your payment will post to your account Sunday evening.
- Chase does not allow you to add a debit card as a payment option online. Instead, you can make a direct transfer from your checking account to your credit card account, which accomplishes the same thing as a debit card transaction. Chase is not accepting prepaid debit cards as payment at this time.
To make a direct transfer from your checking account, log on to your Chase account and click, the “Pay Card” button. From the “Pay From” drop-down menu, select “Add an Account” and enter your checking account number and routing number. There’s no limit to the number of accounts you can add, but you must select one primary account from which the funds would be withdrawn.
Beware of convenience fees any time you make a transaction where the debit card is not the merchant’s standard method of payment. Chase does not charge a fee to use its phone service, but they may charge you a flat fee of $2 or $3 for the use of a debit card.
