You can't use the direct deposit numbers to ACH out. And there's a monthly fee of $5 after 180 days of non-activity.
Note: There is a 3% transfer fee for PP Biz Debit MC. Time to say goodbye.

Debit load limit
$200/day - reset at 12pm PST.
7/21 - Load limit back down to $100 a day. This keeps fluctuating, so just check your account and not the wiki.

It seems that Chime doesn't like you having a large balance so make sure you use the card every now and then. See this post http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/23173754-post47.html

Chime will suspend account for rapid unloading, large purchases/withdrawals are more likely to get flagged.

A friend of a user has been told that there is a lifetime limit of 6 debit cards linked to an account and 20 attempts of linking debit cards to an account (counting both successful and unsuccessful linkages). If you have reached the limit, there is no way to resolve the issue.

Debit card loads that WORK
PP Biz Debit MC (1% cb confirmed as of June loads)

Debit card loads that DON'T WORK (that have been tested)
Metabank VGC
USBank MC GC
Vanilla MCGC

I'm actually a bit suprsed if there is a delay as everything else with this card seems like it updates very fast. Fingers crossed this will wind up useful beyond to initial $10 bonus and free coffee I got.
#1 Rule: DON'T CALL!

Now they will fix this much faster than if they hadn't been alerted.

This is a great post. It comes from someone new enough to where I can see them making this mistake, but it is also written in a troll-y way that incites the wrath of flyertalk.

10/10, would rage again.

Sorry guys, I can see your point that there could be a glitch to be taken advantage of. If it makes you feel any better he never even asked what kind of card it was.

Wow. I guess I was just lucky to squeeze in extra $300 without fees this morning.

I see the 3% as well with PPBDMC *sighs*
I wouldn't call it quits on the card just yet. I'm sure there are other uses for it. No monthly fee which is great.

Really? Why wouldn't we be able to pull funds from this card? It has a routing number and account number.

My bank accepted the rn/an. Just waiting for test deposits to hit.

No fee on my $1 load from 11AM yesterday.

edit: just went to test $10.00 to see if there is a threshold that is fee free and now it confirms that you accept to 3% charge before you continue.

Think they'll assess the "Account Maintenance Fee (assessed after 180 days of no purchases, withdrawals, or deposits): $5.00 (per month)" if there's no balance?
