Spend Setter

Having more control of your money just got easier.

Forget budget planning spreadsheets. With Spend Setter, you can set budgets for categories where you'd like to tighten-up your spending. We'll do the rest, letting you know how you're doing along the way.

Open a Huntington Checking account and we'll help you start tracking your budgets today.
How it works:

 


Create budgets based on your spending history. You can edit, delete, or create new budgets that work best for you at any time.

 


When you make a purchase with your Huntington credit or debit card, we'll track it against the limit you set for that category.

 


Quickly see how you're doing when you log in to The Hub. Green means you're on track, yellow means you're close to the limit, and red means you've gone over.
