If you are not a Pelican member, you must be eligible to open a primary savings account with Pelican to become one. The deposit to open a primary savings account starts at a minimum of $10 ($5 to join + $5 minimum balance). A minimum deposit of $25 is required to open Kasasa Cash account. APY = Annual Percentage Yield. APYs accurate as of 4/1/2020. Rates and rewards may change after account is opened. This account is a tiered rate account. For Kasasa Cash, if qualifications are met each monthly qualification period: (1) ATM fees (up to $4.99 per single transaction) incurred during qualification period will be reimbursed and credited to account by the second business day following the end of the last day of the statement cycle; (2) balances up to $7,500 (tier 1) receive APY up to 4.25%; and (3) balances over $7,500 (tier 2) earn 0.50% dividends on the portion of the balance over $7,500, resulting in range of 0.76% - 4.25% APY depending on the balance maintained, assuming a maximum $100,000 in tier 2. If qualifications are not met on Kasasa Cash, all balances earn 0.05% APY. The minimum service requirements include: (1) making 15 debit card point-of-sale purchases (ATM transactions and transfers between accounts do not qualify) that are cleared and posted to your account during the qualification period; (2) having direct deposit, ACH debit or credit, or Bill Pay transaction posted to your Kasasa Cash account; (3) accessing online or mobile banking once during qualification period; and (4) receiving your monthly statement electronically. Transactions may take 1 or more banking days from the date transaction was made to post to and settle account. The qualification period is defined as a period beginning on the last day of the prior calendar month and ending on the next-to-last day of the calendar month. ATM receipt must be presented for reimbursement of ATM fees of $5.00 or higher within 30 days after the statement cycle where the reimbursement was applicable in order to receive a refund. The advertised Kasasa Cash APY is based on compounding dividends. If member has a Kasasa Saver account, dividends earned on Kasasa Cash balances are automatically transferred to Kasasa Saver each statement cycle and do not compound. Actual dividends paid may be less than advertised Kasasa Cash APY. The Kasasa Saver APYs may be less than Kasasa Cash APYs. Not everyone will qualify to open a Kasasa Cash rewards checking account.
