Chase Bank makes it simple to set up email alerts each time a transaction occurs on your credit card or bank account. Email alerts are a useful feature offered by most banks to help customers stay on top of purchases and detect fraudulent transactions. These alerts are often sent within seconds of swiping your card.

About Chase Bank

Chase is one of the oldest financial institutions in the United States. The earliest iteration of Chase was The Manhattan Company, chartered by the New York State legislature in 1799 to supply New York City with clean drinking water. Through myriad mergers and acquisitions over the past two centuries, Chase parent JPMorgan Chase has grown into a global banking behemoth with nearly $4 trillion in assets.

Chase Bank offers a comprehensive range of banking products and services tailored to meet the needs of its diverse customer base, including individuals, small businesses, and large corporations. Personal banking customers can choose from checking and savings accounts, credit cards with competitive rewards programs, home mortgages, auto loans, and investment services through Chase Wealth Management.

Do more with purchase alerts from Chase Bank

Chase Bank's purchase alerts are useful for catching fraud, but they won't help you keep track of your spending. When you buy something on Amazon, you might want to know how much you've spent there so far this month. Or when you order takeout, you might want to keep tabs on your weekly restaurant spending.

With Latwy, real-time alerts become far more useful and informative. They can be delivered via email, Telegram, Discord, or Slack.
