Qualification Information: 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 purchases processed by merchants and received by 1st MidAmerica Credit Union as ATM transactions, and purchases made with debit cards not issued by 1st MidAmerica Credit Union. “Monthly Qualification Cycle” means a period beginning on the first day of the current statement cycle through the last day 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 APY of 2.25%; and balances over $10,000 earn 0.25% interest rate on the portion of balance over $10,000, resulting in a range from 0.25% to 2.25% APY depending on the account’s balance and (2) you will receive unlimited reimbursements ($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 of transaction for reimbursements of individual ATM fees of $5.00 or higher. When Kasasa Cash qualifications are not met, all balances in the account earn 0.01% APY and ATM fees are not refunded. Dividends and ATM fee reimbursements will be credited to your Kasasa Cash account on the first business day of the statement cycle after the cycle in which the account qualified for the rewards. APY = Annual Percentage Yield. APYs accurate as of 01/01/2017. Rates and rewards are variable and may change after account is opened. Fees may reduce earnings.
