Return to top
Regions Bank and AmSouth Bank are making life interesting for customers with their new "Make Life Interesting" sweepstakes and a chance for one customer to win $1 million. Regions and AmSouth launched the new "Make Life Interesting" sweepstakes, to run Jan. 8 through May 19, to celebrate the new Free Interest Checking Account. Each week for the next 19 weeks, two consumer, private banking or small-business customers (one customer each from Regions and AmSouth) will win $10,000 plus the opportunity to participate in the "Big Event" where they could win $1 million. "The merger of Regions and AmSouth is the perfect opportunity to offer our customers incredible new products," Chief Marketing Officer Scott Peters said. "A checking account that offers free interest is something that our customers have requested. We have listened and, as a bonus, want to reward them for banking with us." In addition to their $10,000 prize, each weekly winner will be allowed to pick a local charity to receive a $1,000 donation. To enter, consumers may visit a participating Regions or AmSouth Bank during normal business hours now through May 19 and open a qualifying new account. There will be 19 weekly drawings conducted by independent judges. The weekly winners will be invited to the "Big Event" for a chance at winning $1 million. For details and a list of rules visit www.amsouth.com or www.regions.com. Opening an account is not a requirement to participate in the sweepstakes. To enter without opening a qualifying new account, consumers may mail an entry. Accounts are subject to credit approval.
