What’s scarier than running out of virtual coins? Running out of real money.

Making the money stretch those last couple days until your next paycheck is a fearsome scenario — especially in an emergency.

If you need to get paid earlier next time, let Chime be your secret weapon.

Unlike most financial institutions, this online bank account doesn’t wait until your pay date to give you access to your money. As soon as it receives notification of the transaction from your employer, it immediately posts those funds to your account.

That means you’ll get your paycheck early — like Samuel Demeny, who recently switched to Chime. He uses direct deposit. His company technically pays everyone on Fridays, but he gets paid on Wednesdays. Chime gets him access to that cash two days earlier than his co-workers.

Conquer your fear of running out of cash by downloading Chime today.
