To avoid any confusion, this blog post is about MainStreet Bank (based in Virginia) and the earlier post was about Main Street Bank (based in Michigan).

In November, Virginia-based MainStreet Bank introduced a new Kasasa Cash checking account that earns 2.00% APY on qualifying balances up to $15K; qualifying balances over $15K earn 0.25% APY, while non-qualifying balances earn 0.05% APY.
