Online PR News – 28-May-2010 – – Lebanon, MO – Heritage Bank of the Ozarks recently announced the availability of Kasasa™, a new brand of free checking and savings accounts that are taking the nation by storm. Kasasa pays consumers to use their account with what interests them most—high interest, automatic savings, money donated to charity or free iTunes® downloads. Thousands of consumers around the country have already switched to Kasasa to have access to exciting banking products and the personal service available only at America’s finest community financial institutions.

“Consumers can now get Kasasa, which delivers what research shows consumers really want but believe they can’t have—exceptional banking products with the personal service of a community financial institution” said Bill Lewis, President of Heritage Bank of the Ozarks.

Heritage Bank of the Ozarks is offering two of the new Kasasa banking products, Kasasa Cash™ and Kasasa Saver™. All Kasasa products are free accounts, with no minimum balance, no monthly fees, free online banking and nationwide ATM fee refunds.

• Kasasa Cash - A free checking account that pays high interest in cash every month.

• Kasasa Saver - A high interest saver account linked to a Kasasa Cash checking account. The high interest and ATM fee refunds earned in the Kasasa Cash account are automatically deposited into the Kasasa Saver account each month. The balance in the Kasasa Saver account also earns a high rate of interest.

To receive the Kasasa account benefits, accountholders need to meet easy monthly qualifications, including receiving an e-Statement, using a debit card and making an electronic transaction. If an accountholder does not meet the qualifications in a given month, the bank will alert the individual, who will be eligible the following month for the benefits.

“Based on the overwhelming success that Kasasa received in other parts of the country, we expect to receive a ton of interest,” continued Lewis.

Kasasa is distributed to Heritage Bank of the Ozarks from BancVue, the leading provider of innovative products, dynamic marketing, and data-driven consulting solutions to community financial institutions nationwide.
