1 Checking Promotion Requirements: Use the promo code referenced above when opening a new Connect Checking account with money not currently on deposit at Hancock Whitney Bank by the offer expiration date of 6/30/2021. The promo code is required at account opening. The following criteria must be met by 8/31/2021: Set up and receive a qualifying monthly direct deposit of at least $250 per deposit. A qualifying direct deposit includes a salary, pension, social security or other recurring, monthly income amount of $250 or more, electronically deposited by your employer or outside agency. Transfers from one account to another or deposits made at a financial center or ATM do not qualify. A qualifying direct deposit is a recurring electronic deposit of at least $250 of your paycheck, pension, or government benefit (such as Social Security) electronically deposited by your employer, the government, or outside agency. Qualifying direct deposit does not include payments received from apps such as PayPal or Cash App, and other similar payment providers. Tax refunds and Stimulus Checks are not qualifying direct deposits. Deposits made at a financial center, via ATM, online transfer, mobile device, debit card/prepaid card number or the mail do not qualify. The bank may change or discontinue the offer at any time and without notice. This offer is non-transferable and cannot be combined with other offers. Only the person to whom this offer is addressed is eligible for this offer. Limit of one consumer checking-related bonus per household per calendar year.

If your account meets the criteria, and remains open and active, we will deposit the earned bonus into your new Connect Checking account within 6 weeks after the qualification period of 8/31/2021. Bonuses may be considered interest and may be reported on IRS Form 1099.

Additional Terms and Conditions: All account applications are subject to approval. Minimum opening deposit of $50 required. The monthly service charge of $12 can be waived if you maintain one or more of the following: a minimum daily collected balance of at least $1,500 or more or $5,000 in combined deposits (excluding CDs and IRAs) or consumer loans (excluding mortgages) and credit card balances. A Connect Checking account cannot be linked to any other Connect, Priority, or Private Banking checking account for combined balance calculations. If your account is closed within the first 180 days after opening, a $20 service charge will be assessed and we reserve the right to deduct the bonus amount from your account's closing balance. Please refer to the Truth in Savings Disclosure for other applicable fees and information.

If you have opted into the payment of ATM and everyday debit card (POS) transactions into OD, we may assess OD or NSF fees on these items as well. We waive OD/NSF fees on the following: items $5 or less or end-of –day account balances overdrawn or that would have been overdrawn by $5 or less. We will also assess a $36.00 Sustained Overdraft fee each time your account remains overdrawn for at least nine (9) consecutive calendar days. This fee is separate from your OD/ NSF Fees already assessed. We waive this fee in certain circumstances. See our Truth in Savings Disclosure and Deposit Agreement for more information. We pay overdrafts at our discretion and do not guarantee that we will always authorize payment of any transaction. For example, we typically do not pay overdrafts if your account is not in good standing. If your account is overdrawn, you must immediately bring it to a positive balance to avoid additional fees.
