Huntington Bank blends the best features of a brick-and-mortar community bank with an online bank capable of serving account holders and borrowers. With a physical branch location spanning several states in the industrial Midwest and Ohio Valley regions — from West Virginia and western Pennsylvania through Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, and Michigan — Huntington Bank has tens of millions of people in its trade area and hundreds of millions more in its digital “footprint.”

Geographical reach isn’t the only reason to consider Huntington Bank. Huntington offers several different types of checking accounts and savings accounts, multiple certificate of deposit (CD) options for longer-term savers, and an array of credit products too, including a rewards credit card. And it boasts some consumer-friendly, value-added features like automated savings and early payday for qualifying recipients that some other banks lack.

If you’re looking to shake up the way you bank online or in person, Huntington Bank deserves consideration. Let’s take a closer look at its account options and other key features.

The Voice Credit Card® from Huntington comes in two optional configurations. Choose the one that fits your needs and lifestyle best:

  • Rewards Voice Credit Card: Earn 3x rewards points (3 points per $1 spent) on eligible purchases in the spending categories of your choosing.

  • Lower Rate: Instead of rewards, get a 2% lower purchase APR on all purchases. There’s no penalty APR, so your rate won’t increase even if you make a late payment.

9. Huntington Bank Loan Products

Huntington Bank offers a wide variety of loan products, mostly for homeowners and home buyers. They include:

  • Fixed rate and adjustable rate conventional mortgages
  • Specialty mortgages, including FHA, VA, and USDA mortgage loans
  • Home equity loans
  • Home equity lines of credit (HELOC)
  • HomeStyle renovation loans and construction loans
  • Jumbo mortgages
  • Personal loans
  • Auto loans

Other Huntington Bank Products and Features

Some other Huntington Bank products and features deserve mention here. Most are designed to protect or enrich Huntington customers, helping them make the most out of their relationship with the bank.

  • Standby CashSM. Standby Cash7 is a digital-only line of credit that you can pay back over three months and it’s absolutely free when you set up automatic payments. Otherwise, a 1% monthly interest charge — 12% Annual Percentage Yield (APR) — applies to all outstanding balances.
  • 24-Hour Grace. This grace period feature gives all account holders 24 hours to avoid overdraft and return fees by depositing enough in their accounts to offset the negative balance.
  • $50 Safety Zone.8 If you accidentally overdraw your account by $50 or less, you won’t be charged an overdraft fee.
  • Money Scout. When enrolled, Money Scout9 is an automated savings feature that tallies up your recent expenditures, recent and expected inflows (income from paychecks and other sources), and pending expenses (such as scheduled bills) to find opportunities to save. When it detects a surplus balance ($5 to $50) in your checking account, it transfers that surplus to your savings account with no action required on your part.
  • Early Pay.10 Qualifying account holders (those with qualifying employers or government benefits payers) can get paid up to two days early via direct deposit.

Advantages

Huntington Bank has some key advantages for consumer account holders and borrowers, including an unusually wide range of checking and savings account options and multiple options to help customers avoid fees and save more.

  1. Wide Range of Account Types. Huntington Bank has three different consumer checking accounts, three different consumer savings accounts, more than a dozen CDs, and a host of credit options. There’s something for just about everyone here.
  2. Early Payday for Qualifying Customers. Qualifying Huntington Bank depositors get paid up to two days early when they set up direct deposit with a qualifying payer (employer or government benefits provider).
  3. Multiple Overdraft Protection and Grace Options. Between the $50 Safety Zone, 24-Hour Grace, and Standby Cash, Huntington Bank offers several informal ways to avoid overdraft and return fees.
  4. Automated Savings Through Money Scout. When enrolled, Money Scout is a handy automated savings feature that doesn’t even have to nudge you to save. It does the hard work of saving on your behalf, with no action required on your part.
  5. Consumer Credit Card With Two Distinct Configurations. The Voice Credit Card from Huntington comes in two distinct configurations: a rewards credit card option that’s right up there with the top cash-back credit cards on the market and a lower-APR product that’s ideal for people who carry balances from month to month.

Disadvantages

Huntington Bank has some noteworthy drawbacks. With fees and minimums on most accounts, it’s not the most consumer-friendly bank around.

  1. Low Yields on Savings Accounts and CDs. Huntington Bank is not the place to go for industry-leading yields. In fact, the bank’s yields are downright anemic, topping out at about 0.03% APY on long-term CDs and 0.06% APY for money market accounts, regardless of balance or relationship status.
  2. Monthly Maintenance Fees on Most Accounts. Most Huntington Bank deposit accounts have monthly maintenance fees. It’s not too difficult to avoid these, but if you plan to carry a low balance or have only one account with Huntington, doing so could carry a monthly cost — unless you have Asterisk-Free Checking, which has no monthly maintenance fee or minimum balance requirement.

Final Word

Huntington Bank is a full-service bank that blends the convenience of a pure online bank with the relationship-based model of a traditional community institution. Although its savings products don’t have the highest yields around and most of its accounts have some combination of maintenance fees (eligible for waivers with qualifying activities) or balance minimums, Huntington still has lots to offer U.S. consumers.

And if you aren’t sure Huntington Bank is right for you? Alternatives abound in the ever-changing, ever-expanding world of online banking. Look long enough and you’re sure to find a rewards checking account or high yield savings account that meets your needs.

1 You can avoid the monthly checking maintenance fee for any statement period for either Huntington 5 or Huntington 25 checking account when you keep a total relationship balance of at least $25,000 for Huntington 25 or $5,000 for Huntington 5 in eligible deposits held directly with us or investments made through our affiliate, The Huntington Investment Company. Eligible deposits are this account and any other checking, money market, savings, certificate of deposit (CD), and individual retirement accounts (IRA) owned by you or jointly with someone else. Eligible investments are those in your name which The Huntington Investment Company reports to our deposit system for inclusion in the total relationship balance, and generally include investments (both IRA and non-IRA) held in brokerage accounts and certain direct investments in mutual funds and annuities, as well as retail life insurance products. We figure the total relationship balance each month by adding the qualifying balances, as we determine them, for all of your eligible accounts to the average daily balance of this checking account for the monthly statement period.

2 With Huntington 25 we’ll waive all & with Huntington 5 your first 5 non-Huntington ATM cash withdrawal fees per statement cycle at any ATM worldwide. We’ll also reimburse you for withdrawal fees on the same transactions charged by the owner of a non-Huntington ATM. You will be responsible for any additional fees charged by the owner of a non-Huntington ATM as well as any international transaction or other fees charged by the network.

3You may qualify for a Bonus on points earned on your Voice Credit Card when you have a linked consumer Huntington 25 or Huntington 5 Checking account. You must have chosen the Rewards option on your Voice Credit Card and maintain the consumer deposit account to qualify. If you choose the Rewards option and you also open a Huntington 25 Checking account, you will get a 25% bonus. If you open a Huntington 5 Checking account, you will get a 5% bonus. You must maintain your Huntington 25 or 5 Checking account and your Huntington Voice Credit Card to continue to qualify for the Rewards bonus. After your accounts are linked, the bonus is calculated on the single points earned for each transaction and is not calculated on any bonus points, including any bonus points earned in the 3X Rewards category. Please review your Rewards terms and conditions for more information.

4 The Home Equity Line of Credit Relationship Discount (“Rate Discount”) consists of preferred Annual Percentage Rates and related preferred variable rate margins applied to your Home Equity Line of Credit (which is also referred to as a personal credit line or “PCL”). To be eligible for the Rate Discount, you must have or open a Huntington 25 Checking or Private Client Account (either account is a “qualifying checking account”) and have at least $25,000 in qualifying relationship balances (“qualifying balances”). Qualifying balances include your money that is on deposit in all of your Huntington consumer deposit accounts (checking, money market, savings, certificate of deposit (CDs), and individual retirement accounts (IRAs)), owned by you or jointly with someone else; and, all Huntington Consumer investments (IRA and non-IRA) held in brokerage, trust, or managed money accounts. Other eligible accounts include existing annuities with a cash value account balance opened by The Huntington Investment Company, but annuity accounts opened on or after the HELOC application date and retail life insurance products are excluded from the HELOC qualifying balances. Investment, trust and annuity account balances will be assessed based on their respective balances that are periodically reported to Huntington systems by a variety of third-party sources. Your specific Rate Discount will depend on the total amount of qualifying balances that correspond to our balance requirement discount rate tier grid. Ask a banker for details. If you do qualify for the Rate Discount, you will then also qualify for an Annual Fee Waiver ($60) during the first year your HELOC is open and during the subsequent years over the PCL Draw and Repayment Periods, as applicable, that you maintain your qualifying checking account. We will continue to waive your Annual Fee as long as you continue to maintain your qualifying checking account in good standing with us. If, at any point during the PCL Draw Period or Repayment Period (“Period(s)”), you close your checking account or the account is closed by us for any reason, your Annual Fee may be reinstated for the following year and for each subsequent year during those Periods, as applicable. Rate Discount eligibility is subject to account and balance validation when Huntington prepares your PCL agreement for your signature. Huntington HELOC is subject to credit application and approval. The Rate Discount and Annual Fee Waiver apply only to a new HELOC which is defined as one to a customer without an existing Huntington HELOC on the subject property within the last 180 days of closing on the new one. APRs range from 2.96% to 17.24%. Rates on the HELOC are variable based on Prime plus or minus a margin and can change monthly but will never be higher than 18.00% APR. The margin is based on your home’s loan-to-value ratio, lien position, owner occupancy status, applicant’s credit history, and the amount of the credit line. “Prime” and “Prime Rate” mean the “Bank Prime Loan” rate published by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System in its statistical release H.15 (510) entitled “Selected Interest Rates.” Use of the word “Prime” does not mean that the rate is the best or lowest rate offered by any lender. Current Prime Rate is 3.25% APR as of May 18, 2021. Rates may change at any time. Borrower-paid title insurance may be required on loan amounts greater than $750,000. Mail-away Fees, which also include a notary fee, range from $125 to $300 and will apply when closing is facilitated by a third party on Huntington’s behalf. In this instance, a $25 courier fee will also apply. Insurance must be carried on the real property securing the account, and flood insurance is required on buildings located in a special flood hazard area. There is a Draw Period for 10 years after the account is opened during which advances and purchases may be made, and during which reductions to principal are not required (unless credit limit has been exceeded), followed by a 20-year Repayment Period during which the minimum monthly payments amortize the outstanding balance on the line at the end of the Draw Period. Making only the minimum payment during the first 10 years will not reduce the principal balance on the account.

5 Mortgage Insurance may be required for loans that have a less than 20% down payment which will increase the APR and result in a higher loan payment. Interest rates and fees are subject to change without notice. Huntington’s mortgage division offers many different mortgage products; your APR may vary depending on the product for which you apply. All loans are subject to loan application and credit approval and receipt of a property appraisal demonstrating sufficient value. Mortgage Relationship Discounts vary based on the (1) type of mortgage product the customer has applied for, and (2) the customer’s Mortgage Relationship Balance held in any eligible account, which include all Huntington consumer deposit accounts (checking, money market, savings, certificates of deposit (CDs), and individual retirement accounts (IRAs) owned by you or jointly with someone else), and all Huntington consumer investments (IRA and non-IRA) held in brokerages, trusts, or managed money accounts. Eligible accounts also include existing annuities with a cash value account balance opened by The Huntington Investment Company, but annuity accounts opened on or after the mortgage loan application date and retail life insurance products are excluded from the Mortgage Relationship Balance. Investment, trust and annuity account balances will be assessed based on the account balances that are periodically reported to Huntington systems by a variety of third party sources. Other requirements include an open Huntington 25 or Private Client Account checking account and a signed agreement at the time of closing for Huntington to automatically draw monthly mortgage payments from any Huntington checking account. The Mortgage Relationship Balance amount(s) must be held by Huntington at least one (1) business day prior to the issuance of the final Mortgage Closing Disclosure prior to the loan closing in order to receive this benefit, and is assessed net of any funds needed for down payment on the mortgage transaction. Huntington’s Mortgage Relationship Discounts are subject to change without notice. Program eligibility is subject to account and balance validation.

Verdict

4.2 / 5
Rating

Huntington Bank offers multiple checking account and savings account options for consumers. With a host of useful features and protections, these accounts exceed the expectations of those used to old-school community banks. But Huntington Bank does have some drawbacks, including maintenance fees on many of its account options.
