You’ll add EasyUp in KeyBank online banking and mobile banking, so you’ll need to have a KeyBank account to get started. Don’t have an account yet?
- Sign on to online or mobile banking.
- Select EasyUp from the list of red activity buttons at the top of your account details page and follow the prompts. (If you don’t already have the accounts you need for EasyUp, you’ll be guided to open them during this step.)
Frequently Asked Questions
- Which accounts can I use with EasyUp?
To start using EasyUp, you’ll need a KeyBank checking and KeyBank savings account. That way, when you make a purchase from your checking account using your debit card, we can easily transfer a dollar from that checking account to your savings account.
The following KeyBank accounts are eligible to use with EasyUp: Any KeyBank checking account, and Key Active Saver®, Key Gold Money Market Savings®, Key Silver Money Market Savings® and KEY4KIDS® Savings.
- Can I use EasyUp with joint accounts?
Yes, you can add EasyUp to any personal Key checking and savings account (except HSAs). At this time, you may only have EasyUp on one set of accounts.
- Can I enroll my business checking accounts in EasyUp?
Not currently. EasyUp is for personal accounts only.
- Can I move my money back to my checking account from my savings account?
Yes. This is your money and you can move it from your savings account at any time.
- Will EasyUp overdraw my checking account?
We’ve built in several protections to help avoid overdrafts. We will only process the EasyUp transfer for that day if the available balance in your Checking Account as of the Cutoff Time is greater than or equal to Fifty Dollars ($50.00) plus the amount of your scheduled Daily Transfer. Plus if EasyUp were to overdraw your account, you would never be charged an overdraft fee.
- Why don’t I see my recent purchase in EasyUp?
EasyUp shows posted transactions only, and some debit card transactions can take a few days to post to your account. Also, some stores process purchases in batches as they ship. When your purchase does post to your account, you’ll see that $1 is transferred to your savings account. The same balance requirements (minimum of $50 plus the EasyUp transfer amount) apply in this case.
- Can I pause and resume EasyUp?
Yes. You can easily turn EasyUp on and off in online and mobile banking in the EasyUp overview dashboard. We check to see if EasyUp is turned on every business day at 7pm local time. So, if you paused EasyUp after 7pm local time, and then a purchase posted to your account, your transfer may be processed. Similarly, if you resume EasyUp before 7pm local time the next business day, any transactions posted after the previous business day will trigger EasyUp transfers to your savings account.
- How do I start using EasyUp with a different set of accounts than those I’m using it with now?
Just sign on to online and mobile banking, select EasyUp from the account details section and unenroll.
