Is Chime Open on Weekends? Does Chime Deposit on Weekends?

The timing of direct deposits will vary on when the payment is sent to your Chime account. Deposits are posted Monday through Friday.

You can access your Chime account either online or with the app at any time, including on weekends. Since there are no physical branches, “normal” banking hours do not apply to Chime. While some customers might prefer face-to-face interactions with bank tellers, one of the advantages of using an online alternative to banks is that you never have to worry about planning your schedule around visiting a physical location.
