Ever since Chase launched its mobile deposit feature in the Android app, I've been using it to deposit checks pretty much exclusively. The only times I couldn't use it were when check amounts exceeded $1,000 or I went past the $3,000 calendar month limit.

Thankfully, according to the letter we just received from Chase, these limits are going up on October 2nd to $2,000/check and $5,000/month. Hopefully, this means that they've tweaked the check recognition algorithms and increased confidence in the program enough to continue increasing these limits in the future. Excellent.

You can find the full text of the letter below:

Dear Chase Customer:

You are receiving this message because you are enrolled in Chase QuickDepositSM. We are increasing the deposit limits for this service effective October 2, 2011.

As a consumer or business customer, you can deposit as much as $2,000 on any day and as much as $5,000 over any thirty (30) day period.

We updated the Chase QuickDeposit Service Agreement (Single Check Deposit) to reflect this information. Your continued use of the Online Services acknowledges your agreement to the amendment. The updated agreement will be available online on October 2, 2011. You can review the latest agreement anytime by logging on and clicking the "Legal Agreements and Disclosures" link at the bottom of any page.

    I would be slightly worried about this. If someone managed to intercept the transfer somehow would there be anyway to know?

      man in the middle attack is usually being avoided by encrypting the connection between you and the server with HTTPS/SSL

    Sorta seems like Chase is really really confident in there app. Maybe too confident, this is almost like painting a huge target on your app and saying to hackers, "Bet you wish you could."

      Certainly not too confident. 2K is very low. Bank of America Business Checking let's me upload 10K per check up to 25,000 per month after you've had an account opened for 3 months.

    No, this is a good thing... I live where I have no access to a Chase bank account, for the next 2 years... I'm definitely not opening up another account, I have had Chase forever... Now if only the application didn't mess up half the time.
