Kellogg Community Credit Union Has 2 Rewards Checking Accounts

POSTED ON BY

Deal Summary: eChecking, 4.00% APY on qualifying balances up to $15k.

Availability: Residents of 15 Southwestern Michigan counties.

Almost five years ago, Kellogg Community Credit Union (KCCU) unveiled its new rewards checking account (RCA), the eChecking account. The initial 4.00% APY on qualifying balances up to $15k is still in effect. Qualifying balances over $15k and non-qualifying balances do not earn any interest. While the $15k qualifying balance cap is too low for many DA readers, this could be a good account for someone who doesn’t have a large amount to deposit and is looking for a high APY.

Kasasa Cash

KCCU is one of the few credit unions that offers two separate RCAs. When the Kasasa brand product line was added in late 2017, I thought the eChecking account might be phased out. I was wrong. The Kasasa Cash account earns 4.25% APY, but the qualifying balance cap is only $7.5k. Qualifying balances above $7.5k earn 0.25% APY, with non-qualifying balances earning 0.01% APY.
