Chase is one of the most well known banks in the country, with over five thousand branches and hundreds of millions of customers within the U.S. If you own a Chase debit or ATM card, then you may find yourself in an awkward position where you simply can't get the money you need fast enough. This article will give you tips on how to make your Chase debit card work for you.
First of all, credit cards are great for emergencies. The main thing that determines whether or not it will work is how you handle your card. If you use your card for every expense, it is going to become very difficult to get cash. However, if you use your card sparingly, then it can work for you. If you have to pay your bills or use your cards occasionally, then Chase may not be right for you.
Now, this does not mean that you should only use your card for emergencies. There are many reasons why you may use your Chase card and that is totally up to you. For example, your credit card may be useful for traveling abroad. Another example is if you are traveling and you don't know how you are going to make your way back home. It may be convenient for you to use a Visa or MasterCard abroad, but if you don't take care of your cards, then you will end up stranded and can never get home.
The best way to avoid having your car stolen is to never leave it in a bag or pocket. It is just as easy to put your Chase debit card or ATM card in your wallet or purse as it is to just put them in your front pocket. If you do have to carry your card around, do so in a case that will help prevent theft. If you plan on leaving it in your wallet or purse, make sure you lock your wallet or purse before carrying it around. Never write the PIN number on anything such as receipts, bills or checks, as it makes it very easy to copy this information.
Also, it is important to always have the numbers that allow you to charge your debit card and the ones that allow you to withdraw money on it printed on the back of the card. This will help you when you use your card and make your purchases.
If you follow these tips, then you should be able to get your Chase debit card . . . . . . to work for you. Remember, though, that Chase will charge you a small fee each month so you will need to have at least some money in your checking account with them. However, this is well worth it because Chase will help you get out of a financial bind and it will ensure that you have access to the money you need to pay those bills. Chase also provides you with a variety of other services that can help you stay ahead of the game and make those unexpected purchases.
