Earning Your Cash Rewards is Simple
Qualifying for your Kasasa Cash rewards automatically qualifies you for the highest Kasasa Saver rate, too. Enrollments must be in place and all of the following transactions and activities must post and settle to your Kasasa Cash account during each Monthly Qualification Cycle:
- At least 12 debit card purchases
- Be enrolled in and agree to receive eStatements
- Be enrolled and log into online banking
If you don't meet the qualifications, don't worry. There's no penalty and both accounts are still free and earn our base dividend rate. Plus, you can get back to earning the full rewards the very next month.
What Is a High Yield Savings Account?
Unlike a traditional savings account, high yield savings accounts can earn a higher interest rate for deposits and are also referred to as high interest savings accounts. By linking to your free Kasasa Cash® checking account, your earnings are automatically transferred to save you more money and time. Instances where a high interest savings account might be useful include saving up for a future experience, putting money away for an emergency fund or if you are trying to get closer to your financial goals through savings. Let your money earn more for you while still having access to your savings account.
3 Differences Between Kasasa Saver vs. Share Savings Account

- Share Savings Account is more than just an account. This option gives you access to a membership with many educational benefits and resources for your financial planning.
- Kasasa Saver is a high interest savings account, meaning that our rates are better than average and offer more benefit to our members.
- The Shared Savings Account requires a $5 minimum to open an account and maintain membership, while the Kasasa Saver does not require a minimum deposit to open.
