Regions Bank LifeGreen Simple Checking℠ Account

For a low, flat monthly fee, you'll enjoy:

  • free online and mobile banking,
  • Visa with cashback rewards,
  • unlimited check writing.

securely on the bank's website

The LifeGreen Simple Checking Account is for those unable to meet the balance requirements to have the monthly fee on the Regions Bank LifeGreen® Checking Account waived, but who would still like to pay a lower monthly fee. That said, there's no difference between these two checking accounts whatsoever.

First, you'll get a free Visa debit card, aka, Visa CheckCard, thanks to which you'll be automatically enrolled in the Regions Cashback Rewards Program. To start earning cash back, all you need to do is activate offers that interest you in Online Banking, and pay for those purchases using your Visa CheckCard.

Needless to say, both Online and Mobile Banking are free for Regions Bank customers, so you can access your checking account whenever you like, so you can keep an eye on your financial activity 24/7. Regions will do that, too, thanks to plenty of security features and measures in place for Regions customers' protection.

You can use their tools and resources for smarter money management, information protection, and more. Some of the well-known tools include Regions LockIt, for better protection of your debit card, or Insights by Regions, which is a collection of educational materials, so you can master personal finances in no time.

Overall, this checking account offer is not that bad, especially if you live in the South, Midwest or Texas region, so you can have a better access to their local branches and ATMs. Also, with particular relationship rates, and discounts on other Regions products and services, you might benefit from more than just basic banking features. So, if the Regions Bank LifeGreen Simple Checking meets your personal banking needs, and if you're looking for an easily manageable bank account that also happens to offer cashback rewards, all for a low monthly fee, go ahead, and apply!
