Ready to earn your rewards?
It’s simple, really. Enrollments must be in place and all of the following transactions and activities must post and settle to your Kasasa Cash account during each Monthly Qualification Cycle:
- At least 1 direct deposit, ACH credit, or ACH payment transaction
- At least 12 debit card purchases
- Be enrolled in and agree to receive e-statements
There you have it. But even if you miss your qualifications during a cycle, your account is still free. And you’ll still earn our base rate. Then you can get back to earning your full rewards the very next month.
Kasasa Cash - Truth In Savings Disclosure
This disclosure contains the rules that govern your deposit account as of 12/27/2018.
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
Purpose and Expected Use of Account
This account is intended to be the accountholder's primary share draft 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.
Valley Communities Credit Union 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 share draft
account or closed altogether. We also reserve the right to convert the account to a
different share draft account if the account does not have consistent active use over 3
(three) 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. A Valley Communities Credit
Union 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.
Dividend Rate & Annual Percentage Yield (APY)
Compounding & Crediting:
Dividends will be compounded on a monthly basis. Dividends will be credited to your

for the period. The period we use is the Statement Cycle.
