The Kasasa Cash Checking account has no monthly service fee, offers free online banking and bill pay services, and can be opened with a minimum $25 deposit. Nationwide ATM fees will be reimbursed up to $25 per statement cycle, if the qualification requirements are met.
Texas Bank Financial’s companion Kasasa Saver account earns 1.00% APY on qualifying balances up to $100k. According to the Deposit Products page, balances of more than $100k earn “1.00% to 0.63% depending on balance in account.” CSR was not able to tell me what the exact rate for the $100k+ balances is. Non-qualifying balances earn 0.05% APY.

The Kasasa Brand
