Chase what matters

Just got an email from Chase this morning. The following is edited for content and style. When in doubt, just call the number on the back of your card. Remember not to solely rely on links and telephone numbers on the Internet.

That being said, I think it is a good gesture from Chase to waive a few of their fees through September 04. Cynics might say that this is just to avoid lawsuits in case they get payments but are not able to process it because of problems on their end but cynics will always be cynical.

To our valued customers in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut:

We hope you, your families and your customers are safe following Hurricane Irene. Natural disasters are very stressful and we want to help where we can.

This week, we are expanding our efforts through Sunday, September 4, 2011, to help you and our millions of customers in the Tri-State area as you recover from the storm.

  • We are increasing staff and extending hours at key branches in severely affected areas.
    • When we know we can get employees to work safely, we will increase staff and extend hours. Please visit frequently and check our Branch Locator for details on the branches near you.

  • We expect most, if not all, of our ATMs to be operational. But if you can’t get to one of our ATMs, we won’t charge you for using someone else’s ATM in the Tri-State area.
    • However, the bank that owns the ATM may charge you.

  • We are waiving the following Chase fees charged between now and through September 4, 2011 for customers in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut:
    • Overdraft, Overdraft Protection Transfer, and Insufficient Funds Fees for deposit accounts.
    • Late fees on credit cards, business and consumer loans.
Please call your personal banker if you are unable to access your funds. For example, we will waive the early withdrawal fees on CDs to help customers with their cash flow.

If you have more specific problems, please call your Financial Advisor, Business Banker, Loan Officer or simply come into your nearest Chase branch. Our branch and telephone bankers are empowered to go the extra mile for customers with storm-related problems or concerns. We also plan to call many of our customers in the hardest hit areas to see if there are other ways we can help.

We hope these efforts can play a small part in easing some of your worries following the storm. We are committed to doing what we can for our customers who have been impacted. If you need assistance, please call us at one of the phone numbers below.
