A Love – Hate Relationship
I absolutely love to shop. I can spend hours shopping in stores and online and enjoy every moment of it. Trying things on, choosing gifts for loved ones, finding just the right one. Hours feel like minutes as I admire all of the things I can choose from. In those moments I am lost in shopping induced bliss. Then it’s time to check out and reality checks in! As much as I love shopping, I hate the entire checkout process. Writing checks, searching through my wallet for the card or cash I need, entering my PIN number; you name it, I hate it!
Regions to The Rescue
The lovely folks over at Regions Bank are always looking for new and innovative ways to improve the way you bank and help you bank the way you want to bank. What that means for me is removing the “hate” from that love – hate relationship I have with shopping. And believe me, I was so thankful for Regions Bank on Black Friday! I did a lot of my holiday shopping and was able to check my accounts and keep accurate records of exactly what I was spending and where using Regions Online Banking. No matter how you bank, Regions is ready to help with texting, mobile web and apps for your smartphone.
I’m telling you, there is really something for everyone and their payment options make it even easier. They offer Visa Checkout which is a quick and convenient way to make payments online; once you’ve registered with Visa, you never have to put in your card number and address when using Visa Checkout at participating merchants to make online purchases. You can pay with just one quick click giving you extra security. Regions Bank makes making mobile and online payments simple and secure. During the holiday season this gives you real peace of mind while doing your gift shopping. Between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, the security and ease of use really makes a difference in my holiday shopping experience.
Apple Pay® and Android Pay™ allow you to pay in stores with secure and easy to use tap and go technology. You can store your Regions cards on your Apple or Android device and with a simple tap of your device you can make your purchase. It’s so easy to set up and use Apple Pay® or Android Pay™. You can use either to pay at participating stores that accept these contactless Visa payments. Be on the lookout for the contactless symbol or Apple Pay® at checkout. You also get a unique account number for your device. This adds an extra layer of security to your purchases. These free apps are priceless!
I was able to get all of my holiday shopping done fast and easy, with no fumbling around while online looking for my checkbook or credit cards and no nagging feeling of my cared information being vulnerable to a merchant security breach. That’s always been a huge worry of mine after seeing many friends go through the headache of being the victims of credit card fraud. It definitely scares me, but now I can feel secure and worry less while making payments on my tablet, smartphone or computer, thanks to Regions.
Send and Receive Money Effortlessly
Regions Personal Pay® is an online payment solution powered by Popmoney® and is an easy way to pay for things like dinner with friends, fundraisers or sending/receiving money to/from friends and family. For only $1 per personal payment, you can securely and simply send or receive money with just an email in as little as a few business days. This is available to Regions Online Banking customers and boy does it come in handy when my son, who’s away at college calls to say “hey mom, umm, I kind of need some cash, like now, please”. It feels good to know that when he has an unexpected expense we can help him out in a matter of minutes and he will receive the money pretty fast.
