- At least 12 debit card purchases
- Be enrolled in and agree to receive eStatements
And if you don’t meet these qualifications, don’t worry — your account is still free. Plus, you’ll still earn our base rate. And you can get right back to earning your full rewards the very next cycle that you qualify.

The following activities do not count toward earning account rewards: ATM-processed transactions, transfers between accounts, debit card purchases processed by merchants and received by our bank as ATM transactions, non-retail payment transactions and purchases made with debit cards not issued by our bank. Transactions bundled together by merchants and received by our institution as a single transaction count as a single transaction for the purpose of earning account rewards.

Depending on what Kasasa account you have, you will receive the following rewards when you meet your account's qualifications during a Monthly Qualification Cycle:
- Kasasa Cash: daily balances up to and including $20,000 in your Kasasa Cash account earn an interest rate of 1.982% resulting in an APY of 2.00%; and daily balances over $20,000 earn an interest rate of 0.149% on the portion of the daily balance over $20,000, resulting in a range from 2.00% to 0.460% APY depending on the account's daily balance.
- Kasasa Saver: daily balances up to and including $50,000 in your Kasasa Saver account earn an interest rate of 0.747% resulting in an APY of 0.750%; and daily balances over $50,000 earn an interest rate of 0.149% on the portion of the daily balance over $50,000, resulting in a range from 0.750% to 0.350% APY depending on the account's daily balance.
- Kasasa Cash Back: you will receive 3.00% cash back on up to a total of $300 debit card purchases that post and settle to the account during that cycle period. A maximum of $9 cash back payments may be earned per Monthly Qualification Cycle.
- You will receive reimbursements up to an aggregate total of $25 for nationwide ATM withdrawal fees incurred within your Kasasa Cash or Kasasa Cash Back account during that Monthly Qualification Cycle. We reimburse ATM withdrawal fees based on estimates when the withdrawal information we receive does not identify the ATM withdrawal fee. If you have not received an appropriate reimbursement, we will adjust the reimbursement amount if we receive the transaction receipt within sixty (60) calendar days of the withdrawal transaction.
NOTE: ATM fee reimbursements only apply to Kasasa Cash or Kasasa Cash Back transactions via ATM; Kasasa Saver ATM transaction fees are not reimbursed nor refunded.
Depending on your Kasasa account, the cash back payments and/or nationwide ATM withdrawal fee reimbursements earned in your account will be credited to your account on the last day of the current statement cycle.
Depending on your Kasasa account, when your qualifications are not met, cash back payments are not made, nationwide ATM withdrawal fees are not reimbursed and:
Kasasa Cash: the entire daily balance in the Kasasa Cash account earns 0.01% APY.
If Kasasa Cash or Kasasa Cash Back are linked to Kasasa Saver, the following also apply:
Kasasa Cash: When linked to a Kasasa Saver account, the interest earned within the Kasasa Cash account does not compound since it, along with any nationwide ATM withdrawal fee reimbursements are, automatically transferred to the Kasasa Saver account within one day. This automatic transfer may cause an overdraft to your Kasasa Cash account, if the account balance is less than the transferred amount when the transfer occurs.
Kasasa Cash Back: When linked to a Kasasa Saver account, the cash back payments and nationwide ATM withdrawal fee reimbursements earned in your Kasasa Cash Back account will be credited to your Kasasa Saver account on the last day of the current statement cycle.
When your Kasasa Cash qualifications are not met, the interest rate earned on the account's entire daily balance will be 0.010% resulting in a non-compounding annual percentage yield of 0.010% and ATM withdrawal fees are not refunded. In addition, the entire daily balance in the Kasasa Saver account earns an interest rate of 0.010% resulting in an annual percentage yield of 0.010%.
APY = Annual Percentage Yield.
APYs accurate as of 01/12/2022.
Kasasa Cash: APY calculations are based on an assumed balance of $20,000 + $100,000 in your Kasasa Cash account and an assumed statement cycle of thirty-one (31) days.
Kasasa Saver: APY calculations are based on an assumed balance of $20,000 + $100,000 in your Kasasa Cash account and 50,000 + $100,000 in your Kasasa Saver account and an assumed statement cycle of thirty-one (31) days.
