Track pending checks online with Chase?
April 16, 2019 6:49 AM   Subscribe

In the old days, I'd write all transactions in my checkbook. Nowadays, when I use a check to pay for something big (like my son's daycare tuition), I have a written record, but it doesn't get tracked online with all my Chase debit card purchases. Is there any way to add notes about pending checks to my Chase account?

The Chase Online help for Account Activity says "Click a description to view transaction details or add a memo for that transaction." Is this what you want to do?

He wants to add a pending transaction that the bank has no record of yet. Systems like Mint or Quicken let you do this.

CapitolOne 360 (previously ING Direct) used to let you do exactly this but I've never see this feature at another bank.

I’m afraid you’re going to have to make a spreadsheet for this. Google “cash flow tracking” for examples.

The only solution I’ve found is to use bill pay instead of writing checks. They mail a check, and I don’t have to worry about losing track of a check.

Workaround: maintain two chase checking accts. One funded for checks, one for debits.
