How the Huntington 5 Checking® $200 Bonus Compares

This looks at the opportunity cost of choosing this bonus instead of a top internet savings account (1.40% APY).

Assuming $5k (no monthly fee) in the Huntington 5 Checking® account for 180 days:

  • $5k in a savings account earning 1.40% for 6 months = $35 interest
  • $5k in a Huntington 5 Checking® account for 6 months = $200 bonus

Assuming $1k ($30 in monthly fees) in the Huntington 5 Checking® account for 180 days:

  • $1k in a savings account earning 1.40% for 6 months = $7 interest
  • $1k in a Huntington 5 Checking® account for 6 months = $170 bonus

The process of $ a 200 Bonus awarded to new checking accounts should be explained to all of the "Branch Team" members. I have called & spoke to 4 branch team members including a manager who never took the time to explain that a promo code was required. Answers varied from 2 weeks to 30 days but nothing about a promo code. I knew it was a limited time offer. Took me an hour with the 800# Customer Service Rep, 4 calls to the branch once a week for the past month & waiting almost an hour in the branch only to find 1 team member who was able to explain what had happened. That poor woman was there on her day off! The branch manager did not want to help me even though I had been waiting for 45 minutes. The manager told me to leave, she couldn't help me. Fortunately, the girl who opened the account came to the rescue. Just left their 15 minutes ago. Only 1 teller while 8 people were standing in line. Seriously frustrating & a poor way to do business.
