Kasasa Saver

Easy automatic savings fueled by your free Kasasa Cash account

Kasasa Saver is a free, high-interest savings account linked to your free Kasasa Cash checking account. The 3.00%APY* you make on your checking account and ATM fee refunds are automatically deposited into your free Kasasa Saver account every month. Your Saver account also piles 1.50%APY* on top of that; so you can sit back, relax and watch your savings grow.

Monthly Qualifications

To easily grow your savings with 3.00%APY* from Kasasa Cash & 1.50%APY* from Kasasa Saver do the following each month:

  • Have at least 10 debit card purchases post and clear
  • Have at least one direct deposit or ACH automatic debit post and clear
  • Receive monthly eStatements

If you miss a month, don’t worry!

There’s no penalty for not qualifying in a given month and the accounts are still free. Plus you’ll still earn a base rate of 0.05%APY* on your checking account. This will be automatically deposited into your Saver account, which will earn a base 0.05%APY*. You can get right back to making 3.00%APY*on your free checking account, 1.50%APY* on your free saver account and enjoying ATM fee refunds the next month you qualify.
