  • At least 12 signature-based debit card purchases
  • At least one ACH direct deposit or ACH payment transaction
  • Be enrolled in and agree to receive eStatements

And that’s it. Even if you don’t meet your qualifications during the cycle, your Kasasa Cash account is still free. Plus, you’ll still earn our base dividend rate and can get right back to earning your full rewards the very next month!
