When your Kasasa Cash account qualifications are met during a Monthly Qualification Cycle, daily balances up to and including $25,000 in your Kasasa Cash account earn a dividend rate (APR) of 4.89% resulting in an APY of 5.00% and daily balances greater than $25,000 earn a dividend rate (APR) of .50% on the portion of the daily balance over $25,000, resulting in a range from 1.38% to 5.00% APY depending on the account’s daily balance.
You will receive reimbursements up to an aggregate total of $25.00 for nationwide ATM withdrawal fees incurred within your Kasasa Cash account during that Monthly Qualification Cycle.

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. When your Kasasa Cash qualifications are not met, the dividend rate earned on the account’s entire daily balance will be 0.049% resulting in an annual percentage yield of 0.05% and ATM withdrawal fees are not refunded.
Dividends will be credited to your Kasasa Cash account on the first day following the current statement cycle. Nationwide ATM withdrawal fee reimbursements will be credited to your account on the first day following the current statement cycle.
