If you are a user of Chime Credit Builder card and looking to know how to transfer money from Chime Credit Builder Account to Spending Account, you are on the right post to get all the steps to do this.
Chime Credit Builder Card is an innovative product from Chime, that is a credit card but works more like a prepaid card. To use Chime Credit Builder Card, you need to first deposit money into a Secured account which becomes your card limit.
At any point in time, you cannot swipe your Chime Credit Card for an amount that exceeds the funds available in your secured account. The money available in this secured account becomes the amount available to spend on your Chime Card.
However, many times, you may run into situations, where you have excess funds in your Chime Secured Credit Builder Account and looking to transfer the money back to your Chime Spending Account. It could also be a case where you want to use Spot Me (which works only on Chime debit card) for which you want to move the money back to the Spending account to stay within the limits.
Fortunately, the process to move funds in and out of your Chime Credit Builder Card to your Spending Account is very easy and you can do this with a few clicks on the Chime App.

Let’s see below the steps to do this in detail.

There are no known limits for the transfer of funds between your Chime Credit Builder and Spending account.
Chime Credit Builder is designed to work with the Chime Spending account.
Chime Credit Builder Basic Terms
Available to Spend: This is the amount you have left to spend on your card, after deducting any purchases or transactions you have done with your Chime Credit Builder Card.
Each time you swipe your card, the amount from your “Available to Spend” will decrease immediately, so you can keep a track of the amount you can spend further on the card.
However, this does not mean that you have completed the payment for your existing spend and this is actually done only on the payment due date either automatically (if you have activated the Safe Credit Builder Option) or you can do it manually.
Available to spend amount is just an indicator of the amount you can further spend on your card considering the money you had originally put in your Secured amount and after deducting the card purchases or card withdrawals from it.
Balance: The total amount you’ve spent on your card since your last statement.
Chime has made the entire process convenient to transfer funds from your Chime Credit Builder Card to your Spending Account, which you can do using just the Chime mobile app and it works instantly.

thank you sis much I had gotten scared when all my money had got stuck on the credit builder Thanks !!
How??? My credit builder account is not a “from“ account! If I click on “link accounts“, it only allows me to add a checking account from somewhere else. Why can’t I link to my credit builder account so that it becomes a “from“ account? The only From account I have is a third-party checking account from somewhere else. It’s not in my list of available accounts, and I can’t add it. Why not?
If you click on the arrow next to the “From” field, it should open up the list with option to select your Chime Credit Builder Account.
If you are still not able to see this, you can contact Chime support team.
