National Advertising Division Finds Chime's "No Overdraft Fees" Claims Supported; Recommends Qualification of "No Hidden Fees" Claims

National Advertising Division | December 29, 2021

The National Advertising Division (NAD) of BBB National Programs determined that Chime Financial, Inc.'s advertising for its "SpotMe" program disclosed the material information necessary to ensure that claims about its program are substantiated and that Chime's "no overdraft fees" claims are supported. Further, NAD found that the Chime homepage adequately qualifies its "no fees" claim so that consumers understand that out-of-network ATM fees are not among the hidden fees it eliminates. However, NAD recommended that Chime qualify claims on its "No Hidden Fees" webpage and television advertising to make clear that the eliminated fees do not include out-of-network ATM fees. The following express claims were challenged by NAD as part of its independent routine monitoring of truth and transparency in U.S. national advertising: "Banking with no hidden fees" "Say goodbye to hidden fees when you bank through Chime. No overdraft fees. No minimum balance fees. No monthly fees. No foreign transaction fees." "Say goodbye to hidden fees*" (at the bottom of the webpage: "*Out-of-Network cash withdrawal fees apply. Third-party and cash deposit fees may apply.") "And if I'm ever in a pinch, Chime SpotMe even lets me overdraw my account fee-free on debit card purchases." "I don't have to worry about overdraft fees. There's no surprises, no hidden fees." NAD also challenged implied claims that: When banking with Chime, consumers will not be charged any of the traditional fees that are imposed by traditional banks. Consumers will never be charged a fee they had not anticipated at the time of signing up for Chime. "No Overdraft Fees" Claims NAD inquired into whether claims about Chime's "SpotMe" program disclosed material limitations of the program and whether its "no fees" and "no overdraft fees" claims were truthful and not misleading. Based on the advertiser's explanation of its "SpotMe" program, NAD determined that the "SpotMe" advertising disclosed the material information necessary to ensure that its claims about the program are substantiated. The claims that the "SpotMe" program allows for "fee-free" overdraft or "up to $200 on debit card purchases with no overdraft fee" are truthful, as Chime does not charge overdraft fees. As a result, NAD determined that the "no overdraft fees" claims are supported. "No Hidden Fees" Claims Chime customers can use over 60,000 in-network ATMs without incurring any fees. If a Chime customer chooses to use an ATM out of that network, they will incur an out-of-network ATM fee. NAD determined that, absent a context that limits the message, Chime's "no hidden fees" claims reasonably convey the message that consumers will not have to pay "hidden" fees that are often associated with traditional banks, including out-of-network ATM fees charged by their institution. Accordingly, the proximity and placement of qualifying language is an important factor in determining if consumers that see the advertiser's "no hidden fees" claims understand that Chime charges out-of-network ATM fees. NAD found that the Chime homepage adequately qualifies its "no fees" claim, however NAD noted consumers could miss the small font disclosure at the bottom of Chime's "No Hidden Fees" webpage and that the claims presented in Chime's television commercials could more clearly qualify the "no hidden fees" claim. Accordingly, NAD recommended that Chime modify its "No Hidden Fees" webpage and television advertising to qualify the "no hidden fees" claim to make clear that the fees it eliminates do not include out-of-network ATM fees. In its advertiser statement, Chime stated that it "agrees to make enhancements consistent with NAD's recommendations." Further, the advertiser expressed its belief that it has "adequately qualified its advertising statements regarding the assessment of out-of-network ATM fees . . . nonetheless, Chime will consider the NAD's observations in undertaking enhancements to disclosures on the 'No Hidden Fees' webpage and in television advertising."

ZeroSum Launches Auto-Stream: World's First High-Performance OTT/CTV AI-Driven Advertising Platform for Auto Dealers & Marketers

ZeroSum | November 11, 2021

ZeroSum, an industry leading provider of software, data and marketing automation services to the automotive industry, has launched Auto-Stream, a first-of-its-kind platform that utilizes real-time data to assist auto dealers and marketers with the transition from traditional TV to over-the-top (OTT) and connected TV (CTV) advertising to drive faster auto sales and lower advertising costs. For many auto dealers looking to make the switch to OTT and CTV, barriers such as OEM brand standards, lengthy turnaround times and costly production make it difficult to do so efficiently. Auto-Stream, fueled by ZeroSum's extensive inventory database, with a proprietary audience of active shoppers and vehicle identification number (VIN)-level attribution, eliminates these barriers, all with the push of a button. The platform allows users to activate new campaigns in less than 24 hours by integrating a dealer's live vehicle inventory to create, target and deliver VIN-specific ads. The proprietary technology eliminates the high cost of production by using artificial intelligence (AI) to build individual commercials with integrated automaker brand standards for each VIN in inventory. Auto-Stream targets active car buyers who are in the market to purchase vehicles that are already on dealer lots. In the past year alone, there has been an 81% increase in TV streaming, with 76% of homes in the US having a connected TV according to Nielsen data. With millions of prospective car buyers using streaming services every month, marketers are eager to explore more targeted and efficient OTT and CTV advertising options. We created Auto-Stream to help them make that happen effectively by offering what no other platform can: VIN-level attribution for video." Andy Lobred, President, ZeroSum. For auto dealers, Auto-Stream results in engagement with in-market shoppers while maximizing reach without the cost of traditional TV ad production. The platform helps dealers reduce and realign their budget spend based on current buyer shopping behavior in their specific market, allowing them to fill their sales funnel with qualified buyers more quickly and at a lower cost. Dealers will now be able to directly connect the media dollars with actual units moved, resulting in better traceability and utilization of marketing spend. For agency and auto group partners, the platform is a high-gross profit product that provides real-time reporting while giving access to unique automotive audiences and premium OTT/CTV inventory without the need for ad operations, video production, or demand-side platform (DSP) minimum, as the technology can be run on any budget. "We feel what Auto-Stream provides is truly a game changer," said Nick Dionne, Vice President of Product and Marketing, ZeroSum. "The ability to have intelligent, customizable, inventory-fueled creative options, done quickly with none of the hassle, will allow our customers to modernize their marketing in ways never before possible." "No other technology can dynamically and automatically adjust creative and spend distribution based on real-time data like ZeroSum's can," said Dionne. "Dealers using MarketAI are seeing inventory turns moving as much as 40% faster while acquisitions costs are reduced by 70%." The Auto-Stream debut follows ZeroSum's launch of MarketAI, the industry's first AI-driven marketing platform, earlier this year. Now used by thousands of dealers nationwide, the MarketAI platform houses an inventory of hundreds of millions of VINs and related data, allowing dealerships to leverage the cross-platform advertising system to specifically target active shoppers. The MarketAI platform can be paired with social media, digital display, search, and Auto-Stream to increase performance. About ZeroSum ZeroSum is a leader in software, marketing and data. Powered by its SaaS platform, MarketAI, ZeroSum is simplifying and modernizing automotive marketing by leveraging artificial intelligence, data and scaling ability to acquire new customers. ZeroSum is the first and only company that matches consumer demand with automotive data in real time.
