ICBA and Kasasa Renew Preferred Service Provider Agreement


Reward Checking Program Increases Customer Engagement

Washington, D.C. (June 5, 2019)—The Independent Community Bankers of America® (ICBA) and Kasasa announced today that they have extended their Preferred Service Provider relationship. For more than 10 years, community banks have used the Kasasa reward checking program to increase deposits by enticing account holders to earn compelling rewards each month.

Delivered through a nationally recognized brand, Kasasa’s free, rewards-based checking and savings accounts require no minimum balance and enable banks to increase non-interest income and reduce overall expenses. Customers who meet certain account qualifications, such as signing up for e-statements or paying with their check card, can earn rewards including cash back, digital music downloads, account interest, or recoup ATM surcharge fees. 

“Community banks are already known for extraordinary service,” said ICBA President and CEO Rebeca Romero Rainey. “Through the ICBA/Kasasa relationship, they can further enhance their account offerings, helping to build brand awareness and grow market share. We’re pleased to continue this program, which helps drive customer retention and engender loyalty.”

“ICBA’s Preferred Service Provider status adds a level of confidence for community bank leaders looking for innovation service partners like Kasasa,” said Gabe Krajicek, CEO of Kasasa. “We’re experiencing interesting times in the banking industry, to say the least, and to have a partnership we can count on – and bankers can, too – is key to our mutual success. We look forward to a long relationship with ICBA.”
