Last updated on December 13th, 2023

Establishing a positive credit history isn’t the most stylish of endeavors – but that doesn’t mean you can’t look like a heavy hitter.  Chime, the issuers of the popular credit builder product, are offering select Chime Visa® Secured Cardholders the opportunity to an all-metal card design.

About Chime’s Go Metal Promotion

Chime Credit Builder Visa® Secured Credit Cardholders can opt for a shiny new metal card through the fintech’s Go Metal promotion and Metal Card Challenge.  Cardholders complete the challenge and earn their metal Chime Card when they use their current (and sadly, plastic) Chime Visa to make 40 purchases in 60 days.

To be eligible for the contest, a Chime cardholder must receive a promotional email with the subject line “Want a Metal credit card?” Once they enter the challenge, cardholders must use their Chime Visa to make at least 40 qualifying purchases of $1 or more in 60 days.  Chime has also placed a limit of five (5) transactions per day.  Check out the terms and conditions below for the full breakdown of eligible transactions and other rules and regulations.
