Choice of Four Free Ringtones Part of Colts Banking Interactive Website

COLUMBUS, Ohio, Dec. 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Huntington Bank (Nasdaq: HBAN) is offering Colts fans four free ringtones for their cell phones as another feature of Huntington's Colts Banking, which includes debit cards emblazoned with the Colts' official logo as well as a checkbook cover and checks with the logo. Customers can obtain the debit card at no charge. The card can be used at the Colts' Pro Shop and will include a 10% discount. Since the card was introduced, almost 23,000 fans have obtained it.

"As the official bank of the World Champion Indianapolis Colts, Huntington continues to seek ways to give our loyal fans opportunities to support the team and have a little fun in the process," said Mike Newbold, president of Huntington's Central Indiana market. "Since introducing Colts Banking in September, we have had great response to the product. With the Colts heading to the playoffs, we wanted to accelerate the launch of our Colts Banking Website to help celebrate the Colts' winning season."

The ringtones at www.coltsbanking.com include four songs in which the singer is declaring his or her undying love for the Colts. For example, the lyrics to one include: "I love the Colts and you love the Colts, but I love the Colts so much, so very, very much I put this silly ringtone on my phone." While the Lennon-McCartney legacy has nothing to fear from these ditties, the jingles are likely to be embraced by diehard fans.

In addition to the ringtones, the site features the young man who starred in Colts Banking ads, declaring that he loved the Colts more than his girlfriend.

As a Colts Founding Partner, Huntington also has naming rights for the stadium's West Gate-known as the Huntington Gate. Additionally, Huntington will continue to provide private banking services to the Colts' staff and players.
