$400 Checking Bonus Available At Regions Bank

POSTED ON BY

UPDATE 1/19/2017: The $400 bonus is no longer available.

Availability: New checking customers in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas.

A week ago, I wrote about Regions Bank’s (Regions) $300 LifeGreen Checking bonus. How quickly things change. Regions is now offering a $400 LifeGreen Checking bonus, and the Direct Deposit requirement has been dropped.

$400 Bonus Requirements

  • Open any personal LifeGreen Checking Account by January 31, 2017, online using Promo Code 400MC3, or in person using a personalized voucher that will be sent via email.
  • Make 10 Purchases with Regions Visa CheckCard within first 60 days of account opening.
  • Enroll in Online Statements within 60 days of account opening.
  • Receive a $400 credit to your new LifeGreen Checking Account within 120 days of completing the above.

$400 Bonus Limitations

The limitations on the $400 bonus are the same as for last week’s $300 bonus.

  • Offer is non-transferable and only available to the person who has registered. (“To receive this offer, the email address in Regions' system at the time of fulfillment must match the one used to register for this offer and open your new account.”)
  • Only valid for those who do not have or did not have a Regions’ checking account on or after August 1, 2016.
  • Only applies to personal LifeGreen checking accounts.
  • New LifeGreen checking account must be open at the time the credit is issued.
  • There is a $25 Early Termination Fee if the account is closed within 180 days of opening.

Regions Bank offers six different LifeGreen checking accounts: LifeGreen Checking, LifeGreen eAccess Account, LifeGreen Simple Checking, LifeGreen Preferred Checking, 62+ LifeGreen Checking, and LifeGreen Checking for Students.

Opening any LifeGreen Checking account requires a $50 minimum deposit. The monthly fees can be waived, but each LifeGreen Checking account has a different requirement, including maintaining an average monthly balance is maintained, at least one payroll or government Direct Deposit of at least $500 per statement, or a minimum of ten CheckCard purchases. Please refer to Regions Bank's Compare Checking Accounts page to determine which account would be best for you.

Note: When I read about the $400 bonus, the first question that popped into my head was, “What about all those who applied for the $300 bonus last week?” We should know relatively soon if Regions is offering an “upgrade,” since people who feel they have been wrongly denied love to talk about it. If you have a tale to tell, please share it with us.

Availability

Headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama, Regions Bank’s market area includes Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas.

In the past, the LifeGreen Checking bonus was only available in specific metropolitan areas, but this $400 bonus (like the $300 bonus) is available to all residents within the market area.

The new LifeGreen Checking can be opened online using Promo Code 400MC3, or in-person with a personalized voucher at any of 1,540 branches located in the above mentioned states.

After a series of acquisitions and mergers, the Bank expanded its operations to cover the majority of the Southeastern United States, with more than 1,600 branches in 16 states, stretching from Iowa to Florida. In 1994, the name was changed to Regions Bank in order to reflect their expanding operational presence.

How Regions Bank's LifeGreen Checking $400 Bonus Compares

Without the Direct Deposit requirement, this is essentially a $400 gift for opening a new LifeGreen Checking account. As one of DA’s readers is fond of saying, “Sure beats getting a toaster.”

I'm not seeing any information about the promotion on their site. Maybe it's been pulled?

Just speculation, but I think they may have received a number of complaints from people that just opened an account with the $300 bonus, myself included. I wouldn't be surprised to see them restore this offer in a few weeks when they can put some distance between the earlier offer.

Another possibility is that they ****ed up and mistakenly left off a requirement for direct deposit. Normally these types of offers requite that. If so, they may restore the off even earlier, with that important additional requirement.

Hey, just to explain - in my post immediately above, the part that the system partially "bleeped" out with 4 asterisks was not a word that begins with "f" - rather, it was a word that begins with "scr".

Thanks, Ken for making us aware of this offer!
On 1/18, I spent over an hour on hold, but received the personal voucher via email later that evening. The next morning I went to the nearest branch (about an hour away) and opened the account. When I saw later that day your update that the offer had been pulled, I crossed my fingers. Regions posted the $400 bonus within 90 days.
