Qualifications:

You must have a Kasasa Cash or a Kasasa Cash Back account at Great Rivers Bank to open a Kasasa Saver account. You automatically earn the highest Kasasa Saver rate when you meet the monthly Kasasa Cash qualifications each month, which are:

  • Have at least 10 debit card purchases post and settle
  • Have at least one pre-arranged, recurring direct deposit or one ACH auto debit post and settle
  • Be enrolled and review e-Statement notice
  • $100 minimum deposit to open

If you don’t meet the qualifications one month…no worries! Your accounts are still free and earn interest at our base rate. And you can get back to earning the full rewards the very next month!

 

*APY=Annual Percentage Yield. APYs accurate as of 02/05/2013. Rates may change after account is opened.  For Kasasa Cash, if qualifications are met each monthly qualification cycle: (1) Domestic ATM fees incurred during qualification cycle will be reimbursed up to $20 ($4.99 per single transaction) and credited to account on the last day of monthly statement cycle; (2) balances up to $10,000 receive APY of 2.50%; and (3) balances over $10,000 earn 0.55% interest rate on the portion of the balance over $10,000, resulting in 2.50 – 0.55% APY depending on the balance. If qualifications are not met on Kasasa Cash all balances earn 0.05% APY. Qualifying transactions must post to and settle Kasasa Cash account during monthly qualification cycle. Transactions may take one or more banking days from the date transaction was made to post to and settle account. ATM-processed transactions do not count towards qualifying debit card transactions. “Monthly Qualification Cycle” means a period beginning one day prior to the first day of the current statement cycle through one day prior to the close of the current statement cycle.  May 14, 2019 – June 18, 2019; June 19, 2019 – July 16, 2019; July 17, 2019 – August 20, 2019; August 21, 2019 – September 17, 2019; September 18, 2019 – October 15; October 16, 2019 – November 19, 2019; November 20, 2019 – December 17, 2019. The advertised Kasasa Cash APY is based on compounding interest. Interest earned in Kasasa Cash is automatically transferred to Kasasa Saver each statement cycle and does not compound. Actual interest amount paid may be less than advertised Kasasa Cash APY. The Kasasa Saver APYs may be less than Kasasa Cash APYs. If qualifications in Kasasa Cash are met each monthly qualification cycle: (1) balances up to $10,000 in Kasasa Saver receive an APY of 0.75%; and (2) balances over $10,000 in Kasasa Saver earn 0.55% interest rate on portion of balance over $10,000, resulting in 0.75% – 0.55% APY depending on the balance. If qualifications are not met on Kasasa Cash, all balances in Kasasa Saver earn 0.05% APY. Transfers between accounts do not count as qualifying transactions. Limit one account per SSN. ATM receipt must be presented for reimbursement of an individual ATM fee of $5.00 or higher.
