$5 Off Cable Bill & Many More Chime Offer, Stave Off Chime Inactivity Fee

The Offer

Chime has released a bunch of new offers recently:

  • Spend $50 get $5 off at Comcast, Charter, Cox, DirecTV, Time Warner Cable, and Dish Network

Other Offers

  • $3 off $15 at Panera Bread
  • $1 free Starbucks credit
  • $3 off $35 at Olive Garden
  • $5 off $50 at Best Buy
  • $3 off $25 at Anthropologie
  • $5 off $50 at Aldo
  • $3 off $30 at Jack Wills
  • $3 off $25 at Fanatics

The Fine Print

As alway, you’ll have to verify that the offer is still available when you are ready to use it. Each offer has a limited amount of uses and there’s no way to save it to your account.

Our Verdict

Chime has been coming back with some offers. None of them are amazing, but there are some offers which can be useful for many.

Inactivity Fee

We’ve reminded everyone before and we’ll do it again: the Chime card has an inactivity of $5 per month if there’s no activity for 6 months. If you don’t plan on keeping the card, you can just cancel it. If you want to keep it, now is a good time to use one of these offers and stave off any inactivity for the next 6 months.

If you get a physical gift card it should work, as it appears as a regular BB purchase.

My chime card hasn’t been showing any offers for the past 7 months or so. I heard this happened to several people, but I thought their rewards were restored. But mine never did. Wondering if anyone else is in the same boat.

I last used my chime card two months ago, but have not seen any offers since

Chime is a pretty shady company. On their facebook page they are always posting articles about how other companies are charging fees. They are ruthless with their fees. Not using the card for 6 months and they start charging you $5/month without letting you know. Thats pretty crappy. I say ditch them or screw them over and bankrupt them. Hate companies like them.

No offers showing on my account – there were not any last time these posts went around saying new offers either. Not sure how they are targeted but mine & my wife’s chime cards have nothing. Got both right at the beginning and hit pretty much all the offers that you could buy gift cards with, such as walmart, target, gamestop, best buy.

No love for Verizon Fios?

Ive seen in the past that some people mentioning that they werent getting offeres but had a $0 balance or hadnt added money in months and once they did the offers start showing up. That might be the case for some of you not seeing the offers possibly?

Just as a FYI – some of the credit amounts being offered can vary from cardholder to cardholder. For instance, I was targeted for the free $1 Starbucks credit, while my wife was target for a free $3 Starbucks credit.

Also, the “initial” authorization is what triggers the credit amount (not the posted charge) – last month, I had a free $3 Carabba’s credit and a $27.80 bill. I paid $25 with Amex (to get the $10 off $25) and $2.80 with Chime – I also added the tip to the Chime side, so the total charge on Chime was $8. I immediately got the notification from Chime that I had saved $2.80 (the original authorization amount) and this amount was not uplifted to $3 when the true $8 amount actually posted.

Cable deal is kind of worth it. I’d only make a partial payment of $50 to get the $5 bucks and then buy a $5 Amazon gift card and pay the rest of my bill with my Chase Ink.

You can avoid having to pay the inactivity fee by just unlinking any debit cards from your account. I haven’t used my card in a year and I’m sitting on a $0 balance since it has nothing to charge the fee to. Just relink your debit card when something worthwhile comes along and unlink it when you’re done.
