Balances up to $50,000 in the Kasasa Saver account receive an APY of 1.00% if required service qualifications in the Kasasa Cash or Cash Back account are met each monthly qualification cycle. Balances over $50,000 receive an APY of 0.20% on the portion of the balance above $50,000 if qualifications in the Kasasa Cash or Cash Back account are met each monthly qualification cycle. As a result, the APY for balances above $50,000 will range from 1.00% - 0.20% if qualifications in the Kasasa Cash or Cash Back account are met each monthly qualification cycle, depending on the balance in the account. When linked to the Kasasa Saver account, the dividends earned within the Kasasa Cash account does not compound since it is 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’s balance is less than the transferred amount when transfer occurs. If qualifications in the Kasasa Cash or Cash Back account are not met, the APY will be 0.01% on all balances in the Kasasa Saver account. Monthly qualification cycle means the period beginning on the last day of the previous month and closing one (1) day prior to the last day of the current month.
