2Offers are available only to individuals and businesses that are affected by storm damage caused by Hurricane Dorian and are Regions customers. Offers may be subject to other exclusions and restrictions, and are subject to change without notice. All loans and lines, deferrals, extensions or forbearances are subject to required documentation and credit approval. Residency restrictions may apply. Check cashing offer is only available in Regions branches in areas impacted by Dorian. Regions retains the right to refuse to cash any check.
3Offer valid through Dec. 6, 2019. Subject to credit approval. Interest will continue to accrue during the period that the payment is extended, 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.
4Customers who use other banks’ ATMs may be charged an ATM service fee by the owner of that ATM.
5The 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.
6Applications submitted online are not eligible for the loan rate discount.
