Kasasa Cash - Truth in Savings Disclosure
Kasasa Cash: A free variable rate checking account with no minimum balance that rewards accountholders with dividends and nationwide ATM withdrawal fee refunds when they meet minimum qualifications during the account's Monthly Qualification Cycle.
Purpose and Expected Use of Account
This 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. For example, five debit card transactions, each for a dollar, conducted at a convenience store, two days before the end of the cycle period would not be considered by our institution as 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.
Xplore FCU 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 debit account or closed altogether. We also reserve the right to convert the account to a different checking account if the account has not qualified in over 4 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 Xplore FCU 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.
Compounding & Crediting:
Dividends will be compounded on a monthly basis. Dividends will be credited to your Kasasa Cash account on the last day of the current statement cycle. If you close your account before the dividends are credited, you will not receive the accrued dividends. Dividends begin(s) to accrue on the day you deposit noncash items (for example, checks).
"Statement Cycle" means the period of time for which Xplore FCU provides a summary of the financial activities and transactions that post and settle to the accountholder's account.
- Balance Computation Method:
We use the average daily balance method to calculate the dividends on your Kasasa Cash account. This method applies a periodic rate to the average daily balance in the account for the period. The average daily balance is calculated by adding the principal in the account for each day of the period and dividing that figure by the number of days in the period. The period we use is the Statement Cycle.
- Annual Percentage Yield (APY):
When your Kasasa Cash account qualifications are met during a Monthly Qualification Cycle, average daily balances up to and including $10,000 in your Kasasa Cash account earn an APY of 1.50%; and average daily balances over $10,000 earn an APY of 00.25% on the portion of the average daily balance over $10,000. When Kasasa Cash qualifications are not met, ATM withdrawal fees are not refunded and the APY earned on the entire average daily balance in the account will be 0.05%.
To earn your rewards, the following enrollments must be in place and all transactions and activities must post and settle to your Kasasa Cash account during each Monthly Qualification Cycle:
- At least 12 PIN-based / signature-based debit card purchases
- Be enrolled in and log into online banking. Minimum of (1) login per month.
- Be enrolled in and have agreed to receive e-statements rather than paper statements
Account transactions and activities may take one or more days to post and settle to the account and all must do so during the Monthly Qualification Cycle in order to qualify for the account's rewards.
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 credit union as ATM transactions, non-retail payment transactions and purchases made with debit cards not issued by our credit union. 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 business day of the current statement cycle through one (1) business day prior to the last business day of the current statement cycle. "Business Day" means any day on which an office of the credit union is open to the public for the purpose of carrying out substantially all of its banking functions.
"Statement Cycle" means the period of time for which our credit union provides a summary of the financial activities and transactions that post and settle to the accountholder's account.

You will receive reimbursements up to an aggregate total of $25.00 ($9.99 per transaction max) for nationwide ATM withdrawal fees incurred within your Kasasa Cash account during that Monthly Qualification Cycle. We reimburse ATM withdrawal fees based on estimates when the withdrawal information we receive does not identify the ATM withdrawal 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.
When your Kasasa Cash qualifications are not met, the APY earned on the account's entire average daily balance will be 0.05% APY and ATM withdrawal fees are not refunded.
