  • At least 1 direct deposit, ACH credit, ACH payment or Bill Pay transaction(s)
  • At least 12 PIN-based / signature-based debit card purchases
  • Be enrolled in and have agreed to receive e-statements rather than paper statements

Account transactions and activities may take one or more days to post and settle to the account and all must do so during the Monthly Qualification Cycle in order to qualify for the account’s rewards. “Monthly Qualification Cycle” means a period beginning one (1) banking day prior to the first banking day of the current statement cycle through one (1) banking day prior to the last banking day of the current statement cycle.

Reward Information:
When Kasasa Cash Back qualifications are met during a Monthly Qualification Cycle, you will receive 3% cash back on up to a total of $266.75 on PIN-based/signature-based debit card purchases that post and settle to the account during that cycle period. A maximum of $8.00 cash back payments may be earned per Monthly Qualification Cycle.
You will receive reimbursements up to an aggregate total of $25 for nationwide ATM withdrawal fees incurred within your Kasasa Cash Back account during that Monthly Qualification Cycle when qualifications are met. A foreign ATM fee reimbursement cap of up to $4.99 per transaction applies when qualifications are met. We reimburse ATM withdrawal fees based on estimates when the withdrawal information we receive does not identify the ATM withdrawal fee. If you have not received an appropriate reimbursement, we will adjust the reimbursement amount if we receive the transaction receipt within sixty (60) calendar days of the withdrawal transaction. NOTE: ATM fee reimbursements only apply to Kasasa Cash, Kasasa Cash Back, or Kasasa Tunes transactions via ATM; Kasasa Saver ATM transaction fees are not reimbursed nor refunded. When your Kasasa Cash Back account qualifications are not met, no cash back payments are made and ATM withdrawal fees are not refunded. Cash back payments and nationwide ATM withdrawal fee reimbursements will be credited to your Kasasa Cash Back account on the first processing/business day of the following statement cycle. Rates, rewards, and bonuses, if any, are variable and may change after account is opened; rates may change without notice to you. No minimum balance is required to earn or receive the account’s rewards.
Rewards less than a penny cannot be distributed.

Membership restrictions may apply. Account approval, conditions, qualifications, limits, timeframes, enrollments, log-ons and other requirements apply. A $5 minimum deposit is required to open the account. Limit of one account per member.
There are no recurring monthly maintenance charges or fees to open or close this account.
