The Fine Print
- The offer is available only to the person who has registered and is non-transferable. (as mentioned before this was advertised on their FB page, so it doesn’t seem to be targeted)
- $300 bonus offer may not be combined with any other offer, does not apply if you have or had a Regions checking account on or after August 1, 2016, only applies to personal LifeGreen checking accounts, and may be withdrawn at any time without notice.
- To earn this bonus, you must meet all requirements of the offer described above within 60 days of opening your new account.
- If earned, the bonus will be issued within 120 days of meeting these requirements, and will be in the form of a credit to the new checking account, which must be open at the time the credit is issued.
- All LifeGreen checking accounts require a $50 minimum opening deposit.
- For accounts opened in Iowa, certain account fees are subject to Iowa State Tax of 6%, which will be assessed at the time the fee is charged, unless exempt. Taxes are the responsibility of the recipient. Regions associates are not eligible.
There is an early account closure fee of $25 if you close your account within 180 days of account opening. There are four checking accounts that are currently offered, but there are only two that should be really considered. You can compare all four by clicking here.
LifeGreen Checking $8-$10 Monthly Fee
This account can have it’s monthly fee removed if you do any of the following:
- Have an average monthly balance of $1,500 or more
- Receive a single qualifying direct deposit of $500 or more per cycle
- Receive cumulative direct deposits of $1,000 or more per cycle
LifeGreen eAccess Account $8-10 Monthly Fee
This account can have it’s monthly fee waived if you make 10 or more Regions card purchases per cycle
Referral Bonus $50
There is also a referral bonus you can receive in addition to this $300 bonus (bringing the total to $350). This has worked in the past, but it is no guarantee to work this time around. You need to mention the full name and e-mail address of the person who refers you to get this bonus (they’ll also receive a $50 bonus). Reader firstname.lastname@example.org let us know about this bonus, so feel free to e-mail them to get their referral information.
There has been a $300/$350 bonus before, but the location restrictions were much stricter. This seems to be open to their full 15 state footprint. I’d recommend reading through our previous posts about them if you have any questions as they might be answered there.
Honestly this is an awesome bonus and easily one of the best checking bonuses currently available. I don’t expect this too last long, so I’d recommend signing up sooner rather than later if you’re interested. For now please don’t share your referrals in the comments, I’d like to get confirmation that this is actually working for this bonus first.
