Between 2014 and early 2019, New Jersey-based Manasquan Bank offered Kasasa brand checking and savings accounts. Following the acquisition of Metuchen Savings Bank, Manasquan Bank dropped the Kasasa products and added "Infinity, an exclusive product suite." Introduced in April 2019, the Infinity Cash account earns 2.00% APY on qualifying balances up to $25k. Qualifying balances over $25k earn 0.25% APY, with non-qualifying balances earning 0.01% APY.
The Infinity Cash’s monthly qualification requirements are the same as those of the now-defunct Kasasa Cash account.
- At least 12 debit card purchases.
- Be enrolled in and receive eStatements.
- Be enrolled and log into Online Banking.
The Infinity Cash account has no minimum balance requirement or monthly service fees, and can be opened with a $50 minimum deposit. Unlimited check writing is available and a free debit card will be issued following account opening. All domestic ATM fees will be reimbursed on the last day of the monthly statement cycle, with an ATM receipt required for reimbursement of individual fees of $5 or greater. There is a limit of one Infinity Cash account per Social Security number.
The companion Infinity Saver account currently earns 1.50% APY on qualifying balances up to $500k. Qualifying balances over $500k earn 0.25% APY, with non-qualifying balances earning 0.01% APY.
Earned rewards from the Infinity Cash account and ATM fee reimbursements are automatically deposited each month into the Infinity Saver account. There are no monthly services or minimum balance requirements. An Infinity Saver account can be opened with a $50 minimum deposit and there is a limit of one account per Social Security number.
Annual Earnings of Combined Infinity Cash/Infinity Saver Accounts
The potential combined annual earnings of the Infinity Cash (2.00% APY/$25k) and the Infinity Saver (1.50% APY/$500k) is approximately $8,000 (1.524% APY/$525k).
