When Texas Bank Financial introduced its new Kasasa Cash Checking account nine months ago, its initial 4.00% APY on qualifying balances up $50k was definitely “wow-worthy.” While the current 2.02% APY isn’t an outstanding rate, the large balance cap (qualifying balances up to $50k) makes this Kasasa Cash Checking account quite competitive. Qualifying balances above $50k earn 0.25% APY, with non-qualifying balances earning 0.05% APY.
The monthly qualification requirements include,
- At least 12 monthly debit card purchases.
- At least one direct deposit, or ACH credit, or ACH payment transaction.
- Log into online or mobile banking at least once month.
- Receive e-Statements.
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. Unlimited nationwide ATM fees will be reimbursed up to $25 per statement cycle, if the qualification requirements are met. There is a limit of one Kasasa Cash Checking account per Social Security number.
The companion Kasasa Saver account earns 1.00% APY on qualifying balances up to $100k. Qualifying balances of greater than $100k earn 0.25% APY, with non-qualifying balances earning 0.05% APY.
The minimum opening deposit is $25 and there is a limit of one Kasasa Saver account per Social Security number. Earned interest from the Kasasa Cash Checking account and any ATM fee reimbursements will be transferred to the Kasasa Saver on the last day of the statement cycle.
Annual Earnings of Combined Kasasa Cash Checking/Kasasa Saver Accounts
The potential combined annual earnings of the Kasasa Cash Checking (2.02% APY/$50k) and the Kasasa Saver (1.00% APY/$100k) is approximately $2,010 (1.34% APY/$150k).
The Kasasa Brand
On an everyday level, Kasasa is free checking that rewards you each month for doing simple things you might already do. "Simple" as in banking basics that actually save you time. Like choosing e-statements over paper statements, or swiping your debit card at checkout instead of writing a check.
