Kasasa Cash and Cash Back FAQ

Why is there a minimum transaction amount?

Setting a minimum transaction amount of $8 was necessary in order for us to maximize the interest rate that we can pay to our members. 

Can I still use my debit card for transactions under the minimum transaction amount?

Yes! Transactions lower than $8 will not count towards qualifying for the rewards, but you can definitely still make small purchases.

To get 6% APY, I have to do 28 debit card transactions! Isn't that a lot?

Our average cardholder actually uses their cards an average of 26 times per month! And if you don't hit 28 transactions one month, you can still qualify for 3% APY if you have between 15-28! 

If I don't qualify for the Blue Tier (6% APY), can I still qualify for the Green Tier (3% APY)?

Yes! For example, if you have 20 qualifying transactions in April, but you have 35 in May (and meet all other qualifications), you would get the 3% APY in April and the 6% APY in May. 

If I don't qualify for either of the interest tiers, will I be penalized?

No. Our Kasasa accounts are free, and the rewards reset every month. If you don’t qualify this month, you can always qualify next month!

Am I still required to enroll in/agree to receive e-statements and have one direct deposit or ACH to qualify for rewards?

Yes, those requirements have not changed.
