New Checking Account Offers Huntington’s Private Client Customers Its Best Checking Rates and Benefits

Deposit services include unlimited non-Huntington ATM fee refunds for cash withdrawals

COLUMBUS, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Huntington’s Private Client Group today introduced a new interest-bearing checking account featuring the bank’s best checking rates and a superior level of benefits.

The Private Client Account provides a comprehensive suite of deposit services, including unlimited non-Huntington ATM fee refunds for cash withdrawals1 (domestic and international), no overdraft fees, no stop-payment fees and no check-order fees. Other deposit services such as incoming wire transfers and foreign currency processing are provided for no additional charge.

The new product pays the bank’s highest standard checking interest rate, which currently is 0.30% (0.30% APY2). Customers also receive a 0.20% interest-rate increase3 on any linked Relationship Money Market Accounts and a 10%-rewards bonus4 for Huntington customers with a qualifying linked Voice Credit Card®.

“We designed the Private Client Account to deliver remarkable value while meeting the unique needs of our private bank customers,” said Jim Dunlap, head of Huntington’s Private Client Group. “This product gives them the best checking features Huntington has to offer.”

Customers can offset the $50 monthly membership fee for the Private Client Account by maintaining during the monthly statement cycle: 1) an average daily balance of $50,000 in the account; 2) an average daily balance of $100,000 in combined linked deposit accounts; or 3) $500,000 in combined linked deposit and investment accounts.5
