*APY=Annual Percentage Yield. APYs are accurate as of 7/17/2024. Rates may change after account is opened. 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 purchase processed by merchants and received by Lee Bank as ATM or PIN based transactions and purchases made with non-Lee Bank issued debit cards. "Monthly Qualification Cycle" means a period beginning one (1) day prior to the first day of the current statement cycle through one (1) day prior to the close of the current statement cycle. Reward Information: When your Kasasa Cash account qualifications are met during a Monthly Qualification Cycle, (1) balances up to $10,000 receive an APY of 3.00%, and balances over $10,000 earn 0.50% interest rate on the portion of balances over $10,000, resulting in a range from 3.00%- 0.50% APY depending on the account's balance and (2) you will receive reimbursements up to $25 ($4.99 per single transaction) for nationwide ATM fees incurred during the Monthly Qualification Cycle in which you qualified. An ATM receipt must be presented within thirty (30) calendar days for reimbursements of individual ATM fees of $5.00 or higher. When Kasasa Cash qualifications are not met, all balances in the account earn 0.05% APY and ATM fees are not refunded. Interest and ATM fee reimbursements will be credited to your Kasasa Cash account on the last day of the statement cycle. Rates and rewards are variable and may change after the account is opened. Fees may reduce earnings. Additional Information: Account approval, conditions, qualifications, limits, time frames, enrollments, log-ons and other requirements apply. $25 minimum deposit is required to open the account. Monthly direct deposit or ACH credit/debit and receipt of electronic statements are conditions of this account. Enrollment in electronic services (e.g. online banking, electronic statements) and log-ons may be required to meet some of the account's qualifications.
