Two Banks Offer Alabama National Championship Debit Cards

The two largest banks in Alabama are trying to capitalize on the excitement of the Crimson Tide's second consecutive BCS championship.

BBVA Compass rolled out a check card which displayed an Alabama football helmet with the number 15, signifying the University's 15th national championship. The bank has a page on its website dedicated to Crimson Tide bank products.

The state's largest bank, Regions, began offering both a national championship check card and checks yesterday. The bank had similar products in 2009 and 2011 when the University of Alabama also won BCS football titles.

"Regions has been a long-term partner with the SEC and its schools, and we're pleased to help Crimson Tide fans celebrate their 2012 National Championship," said Tom Brooks, the head of Regions Cards and Payments, in a statement. "With every CheckCard and check purchase, fans can show their school pride and colors and be reminded of the excitement of their team's accomplishment."
