KASASA CASH – TRUTH IN SAVINGS DISCLOSURE
This disclosure contains the rules that govern your deposit account as of July 1, 2018.
Kasasa Cash: A free variable rate checking account with no minimum balance that rewards accountholders with interest 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. 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.
LaSalle 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 12 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 LaSalle 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 Rate & Annual Percentage Yield (APY)
Compounding & Crediting:
Interest will be compounded on a daily basis. Interest will be credited to your Kasasa Cash 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 begin(s) 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 falls on a Sunday, the next Monday is not a Business Day.
“Statement Cycle” means the period of time for which LaSalle State Bank provides a summary of the financial activities and transactions that post and settle to the accountholder’s account.
Balance Computation Method:
We use the daily balance method to calculate the interest in your Kasasa Cash account. This method applies a periodic rate to the principal in the account each day for the period. The period we use is the Statement Cycle.
Interest Rate & Annual Percentage Yield:
When your Kasasa Cash account qualifications are met during a Monthly Qualification Cycle daily balances up to and including $15,000.00 in your Kasasa Cash account earn an interest rate of 2.48% resulting in an APY of 2.50%; and daily balances over $15,000.00 earn an interest rate of 0.20% on the portion of the daily balance over $15,000.00, resulting in a range from 2.50% to 0.43% APY depending on the account’s daily balance.
When Kasasa Cash qualifications are not met, ATM withdrawal fees are not refunded and the interest rate earned on the entire daily balance in the account will be 0.05% resulting in an APY of 0.05%;

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.
