2 Available only at branches in the above ZIP codes. Regions retains the right to refuse to cash any check.

3 Customers who use non-Regions ATMs may be charged an ATM service fee by the owner of the ATM.

4 Applies only to ATMs in the above ZIP codes. ATM services for non-customers may be subject to fees charged by other banks.

5 The no-penalty offer allows customers to make one partial or complete withdrawal without penalty. The penalty-free withdrawal must be made more than seven days after the issue date or the most recent renewal date (whichever is later). Any other withdrawals will be subject to penalties.

6 Applications submitted online are not eligible for the loan rate discount.

7 Subject to credit approval. Interest will continue to accrue during the period that the payment is skipped or deferred. For installment loans, deferring or skipping payment may extend the maturity of your loan but will not automatically extend any optional insurance. Forbearances, skipped payments and deferrals generally (a) vary by customer, (b) postpone — rather than forgive — certain payment obligations and (c) require payment in full of the postponed payments at the end of the forbearance or deferral period, in addition to any other amounts that come due, unless you make other arrangements with Regions to resolve the delinquency.
