After more than 3 years of an unimpressive 0.45% APY, North American Savings Bank (NASB) has raised the rate on its eSavings account to a notable 1.12% APY.
The eSavings account is available only online. The account can be opened with a $100 minimum deposit and the 1.12% APY applies to all balances.
The website states there are no monthly maintenance fees associated with this account, but the fine print indicates a $7.50 monthly fee will apply if 1) a $100 minimum balance is not maintained or, 2) the account is inactive for more than six months.
Headquartered in Grandview, Missouri, North American Savings Bank offers its services and products to all U.S. citizens and permanent residents of the 50 United State and the District of Columbia. NASB requires a permanent U.S. address to open and maintain any account.
The eSavings account can only be opened online.

North American Savings Bank (FDIC Certificate # 29708) had its beginnings as the City Building and Loan Association (CBLA) in St. Louis in the early 1920s. A few years later, CBLA moved across the state to Kansas City and changed its name to North American Savings Association; it was known as NASA well before the space age. In the 1990s, the name was changed to North American Savings Bank when the Bank became a federally chartered stock savings bank. North American Savings Bank has assets in excess of $1.4 Billion today, and serves not only the Kansas City metropolitan area, but offers nationwide accounts.
