Annual Earnings of Combined Kasasa Cash Checking/Kasasa Saver Accounts

The potential combined annual earnings of a Kasasa Cash Checking account (5.75% APY/$25k) and a Kasasa Saver account (2.25% APY/$100k) is approximately $3,687 (2.95% APY/$125k). As the Kasasa Saver account has such a low rate, it doesn’t make sense to maintain anything but a very small balance.

Kasasa Cash Back Checking

Hanover Bank offers a Kasasa Cash Back Checking account that earns 5.00% cash back on debit card purchases, limited to the first $200 in monthly debit card purchases. If you are planning on maintaining a balance of less than $2,100, the Kasasa Cash Back Checking account would probably be a better deal than the Kasasa Cash Checking account, as the maximum annual earnings for the Kasasa Cash Back Checking account is $120 ($10 per month).

The Kasasa Brand

For those not familiar with the Kasasa brand, Kasasa Cash is a type of Reward Checking Account (RCA) developed by the Texas company, Kasasa, Ltd. Founded in 2003, Kasasa’s sought to develop and market software products for Central Texas community bank. The first account, REWARDChecking®, played a pivotal role in shaping the future of the company.

According to an April 2022 Kasasa blog post,

Kasasa Cash offers a high annual percentage yield (the amount of money you get back in interest, in other words). If you want some extra cash every month to make life a little easier, to treat yourself to something special, or just watch your account balance grow, this is the account for you.

When you spend money with your credit or debit card, it benefits the provider. They make money with every swipe. Why shouldn’t you get a piece of that for choosing to use your bank or credit union’s debit card? It helps them, and it helps you
