A free, variable rate checking account with no minimum balance that rewards accountholders with interest and nationwide ATM fee refunds when they meet minimum qualifications during the account's Monthly Qualification Cycles.
Iowa State Bank's Expectations
Purpose & Expected Use:
The Kasasa Cash account is intended to be the accountholder's primary checking account in which payroll transactions and day-to-day spending activities, including but not limited to grocery, gasoline, apparel, shopping, dining, sporting, and entertainment transactions, are posted and settled.
Commensurate with the spending activities identified above, we expect the account's debit card to be used frequently throughout each month and for transaction amounts to reflect a wide dollar range. Small debit card transactions conducted on the same day at a single merchant and/or multiple transactions made during a condensed time period, particularly near the end of a Monthly Qualification Cycle, are not considered normal, day-to-day spending behavior. These types of transactions appear to be conducted with the sole purpose of qualifying for the account's rewards and thus will be deemed inappropriate transactions and will not count toward earning the account's rewards.
Iowa State Bank & Trust Company of Fairfield, Iowa (hereafter referred to as Iowa State Bank) reserves the right to determine if the account is being maintained for a purpose other than day-to-day, primary use. Accountholders who persist in making debit card transactions in a calculated and limited fashion, in order to meet their monthly qualifications, may have their accounts converted to a different checking account or closed altogether. We also reserve the right to convert the account to a different checking account if the account does not have consistent active use over six (6) consecutive Statement Cycles.
We have the right to close this account at any time, with proper notice. Our decision to close the account will not affect your existing obligations to us, including any obligation to pay fees or charges incurred prior to termination. No deposits will be accepted, and no checks will be paid, after the account is closed. If the account is closed, you will forfeit any rewards that have not been credited to your account. An Iowa State Bank check for the remaining balance, if applicable, will be mailed to accountholder at the address indicated on our current records. Upon termination of your Kasasa Cash account, any optional add-on products/services associated with this account will also be terminated at the same time.
Interest & Annual Percentage Yield
Compounding & Crediting:
Interest will be compounded on a monthly basis. Interest will be credited to your account on the last day of the current Statement Cycle. If you close your account before the interest is credited, you will not receive the accrued interest. Interest begins to accrue on the Business Day you deposit noncash items (for example, checks). "Business Day" means a calendar day other than a Saturday or a Sunday, January 1, the third Monday in January, the third Monday in February, the last Monday in May, July 4, the first Monday in September, the second Monday in October, November 11, the fourth Thursday in November, or December 25. If January 1, July 4, November 11, or December 25 fall on a Sunday, the next Monday is not a Business Day.
Balance Computation Method:
We use the daily ledger balance method to calculate the interest on your account. This method applies a periodic rate to the daily ledger balance in the account. The daily ledger balance is the ledger balance in the account at the end of the business day.
Interest Rate & Annual Percentage Yield:
When your Kasasa Cash account qualifications are met during a Monthly Qualification Cycle, Tier 1: An interest rate of 2.95% will be paid on the portion of your daily ledger balance less than or equal to $15,000. The annual percentage yield for this tier is 3.00%. Tier 2: An interest rate of 0.20% will be paid on the portion of your daily ledger balance greater than $15,000. The annual percentage yield for this tier will range from 03.00% to 0.57%, depending on the balance in the account. When your Kasasa Cash account qualifications are not met, the interest rate paid on the entire balance will be 0.01% with an annual percentage yield of 0.01%.
To earn your rewards just do the following transactions and activities in your Kasasa Cash account during each Monthly Qualification Cycle:
• Have at least 1 direct deposit / ACH transaction post and settle
• Have at least 12 PIN-based or signature-based debit card purchases
Transactions and activities may take one (1) or more Business Days from the date the transaction or activity occurred to post and settle to the account. The following activities do not count toward earning account rewards: ATM-processed transactions; transfers between accounts; debit card purchases processed by merchants and received by our bank as ATM transactions; non-retail payment transactions; and purchases made with debit cards not issued by our bank. Transactions bundled together by merchants and received by our institution as a single transaction count as a single transaction for the purpose of earning account rewards. "Monthly Qualification Cycle" means a period beginning one (1) Business Day prior to the first day of the current Statement Cycle through one (1) Business Day prior to the close of the current Statement Cycle. "Statement Cycle" means the period of time for which Iowa State Bank provides a summary of the financial activities and transactions that post and settle to the accountholder's account.
If qualifications are met during the monthly qualification cycle:
1) An interest rate of 2.95% will be paid on the portion of your daily ledger balance that is less than or equal to $15,000; the annual percentage yield for this tier is 3.00%. An interest rate of 0.20% will be paid on the portion of your daily ledger balance that is greater than $15,000, resulting in the annual percentage yield for this tier ranging from 3.00% to 0.57%, depending on the account’s balance.
ATM Fee Refunds:
2) You will receive reimbursements up to an aggregate total of $25 (max. $5.00 per single transaction) for nationwide ATM withdrawal fees imposed by other financial institutions and incurred during the Monthly Qualification Cycle in which you qualified. We reimburse ATM withdrawal fees based on estimates when the withdrawal information we receive does not identify the ATM fee. If you have not received an appropriate reimbursement, we will adjust the reimbursement amount if we receive the transaction receipt within sixty (60) calendar days of the withdrawal transaction.
If qualifications are not met during the monthly qualification cycle: All balances earn an interest rate of 0.01%, with an annual percentage yield of 0.01%. Nationwide ATM fees are not reimbursed.
APY: APY = Annual Percentage Yield. Rates and rewards are variable and may change at our discretion after account is opened, without notice to you. Fees may reduce earnings. APY calculations are based on an assumed total account balance of $15,000 plus $100,000 to be shown as a single figure (i.e., $115,000).
Reward Distribution: Interest and ATM fee reimbursements will be credited to the account on the last day of the current Statement Cycle. No minimum balance is required to earn or to receive the account's rewards. Rewards less than a penny cannot be distributed.
Deposits: $100 minimum deposit is required to open the account.
