Regions offers six different personal checking accounts all under their LifeGreen line.
One requires you to be 62+ years old, one applies to only to students, and one other has a monthly fee of $5 that can’t be waived.
That leaves the three checking accounts below with monthly fees between $8 to $18 that can be waived. I recommend the eAccess account as it’s the easiest to waive the monthly fee:
LifeGreen eAccess Account:
The $8 monthly fee can be waived if you:
- Make 10 or more Regions CheckCard purchases per statement cycle
LifeGreen Checking Account:
The $8 monthly fee can be waived if you:
- Maintain an average monthly balance of $1,500 or more OR
- Receive an ACH direct deposit of at least $500 single deposit of $1,000 combine deposit
LifeGreen Preferred Checking Account:
The $18 monthly fee can be waived if you:
- Maintain an average monthly balance of $5,000 or more OR
- Maintain a combined minimum deposit balance of $25,000 or more from all your Regions checking, savings, moneymarkets, CDs, and IRAs OR
- Have certain qualifying first-lien home mortgage loans in good standing OR

The Bottom Line
Regions has offered higher account opening bonuses in the past. I’ve seen offers as high as $450 before, but that was years ago.
It’s safe to say this $200 bonus may be the highest they’ll offer for the foreseeable future so it may be worth going for this one rather than holding your breath for one we haven’t seen since 2017.
I’ll add this to the list of the best bank bonuses.
