      Good information Habee. As a former branch manager of a large bank, I think is important clarity what a transaction means to avoid unwanted charges. Many people think transaction = checks written, that's not the case. Transaction is every single item that goes in and out of your account. For instance, if you make a deposit with 6 checks, that equals 7 transactions. Having that in mind will help you manage your cash flow much better.

      Regions just informed me that my free business checking benefits are no longer free. Will have to pay a monthly fee if i can't meet a minimum balance and will also be charged another monthly fee if the debit card is used in any way, other than atm withdrawals.
