In addition, average daily balances up to and including $25,000.00 in your Kasasa Saver account earn an interest rate of 0.50% resulting in an APY of 0.50% if the qualifications are met for the Kasasa Cash with Saver account.

You will receive reimbursements up to $25.00 for nationwide ATM withdrawal fees incurred within your Kasasa Cash account during the Monthly Qualification Cycle in which you qualified.

When your Kasasa Cash qualifications are not met, the interest rate earned on the account's entire average daily balance will be 0.05% resulting in a non-compounding annual percentage yield of 0.05% and ATM withdrawal fees are not refunded.

* Note: When linked to a Kasasa Saver account, the interest earned within the Kasasa Cash account does not compound since it, along with any nationwide ATM withdrawal fee reimbursements are, automatically transferred to the Kasasa Saver account within one day. This automatic transfer may cause an overdraft to your Kasasa Cash account, if the account balance is less than the transferred amount when the transfer occurs.
