Enjoy more treats with a checking account that pays you!

May 26, 2023 • General News

At Canopy, we believe in going above and beyond for our members.

Having products that also go the extra mile for members is important to us. Now, our KASASA Checking accounts are even BETTER, with members getting paid more than ever for banking local.

Our Kasasa Rewards Checking account now provides up to $12 cash back each month. Here’s how it works. You earn 4.00% cash back on up to $300 in debit card purchases monthly when your account qualifies. That's up to $12 cash back each month, which is $144 each year! 

All you have to do to qualify is enroll in eStatements and have 12 or more debit card purchases every month. Did we mention you also get up to $20 monthly in refunds on ATM fees nationwide?

Now the question is, what could you do with an extra $12 in your budget every month? Here are a few ideas to get you started!

Pay your streaming subscriptions!

It can be hard to say goodbye to your favorite shows, but budgets can be tight. Finding the best streaming service for you can take some trial and error that takes a toll on your wallet. Take the time to make a decision about one to two streaming services work best for you. Then use your $12 towards covering the cost of a streaming service. That will help you truly settle back and enjoy the show!

Treat a friend and you to coffee

Getting together over a “cup of joe” can lead to special moments. Intentionally setting aside time and your $12 to catch up with a friend is a great way to make the most out of your money. Exchange your $12 for two $4 coffees, a $2 pastry to share and little extra for tax and a tip!

Put towards gas money

Put your extra $12 toward your gas money is another way to utilize this free cash! While $12 might not make a huge dent, it will take you a few more miles.  

Buy local goods!

Take your $12 and see how you can support local businesses with your extra cash. At a farmer’s market, make a game out of seeing how much bang you can get for your buck. With a bunch of carrots, freshly picked apples and a jar of local honey, you will have won big time with your rewards.

Cover your gym membership!

Get your sweat on, for free! Use your $12 to cover monthly gym membership fees. That way just you will be doing the heavy lifting, not your wallet. 

Let the music roll on – for free

Put your $12 to work by budgeting it to cover the cost of your favorite ditigal music service. Free tunes will be music to your ears!

Pay it forward!

There are so many ways to pass along the love! What if you utilized the $12 you earned to make other people’s day? Each month, make a plan to give back with your $12. Maybe that is a couple extra bucks in the tip jar at your local coffee shop, or paying for the person behind you at a restaurant.


Now, what if you saved up that $12 each month and budgeted for one special treat with the $144 that you earned? With that extra cash, you can make special memories or even knock something off of your ever-growing to-do list.
