The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • Pelican State Credit Union offers the Kasasa cash checking account. This account offers 5.01% APY on balances up to $7,500 when the following requirements are met:
    • Be enrolled and receive FREE eStatements
    • Be enrolled and log into online or mobile banking
    • Have at least 15 debit card purchases post and settle
    • Have at least 1 direct deposit, online bill payment, or automatic payment (ACH) post and settle

Avoiding Fees

This account has no monthly fees to worry about

Our Verdict

The rate is good, but unfortunately it’s a lot of requirements for a maximum balance of only $7,500. Most  people will be better off going with an account with a higher maximum balance/less requirements. A full list of the best high yield savings accounts can be viewed here. It also being a hard pull makes the deal even worse.
