BuckID Linking FAQ

What's so great about linking my BuckID to my Asterisk-Free Checking® account?
Carry just one card. It's all you need! Get cash from any ATM. Huntington ATMs will be fee-free. Use your card to make purchases with a PIN anywhere. Feel better about the requirement of using a PIN for your purchases, making it harder for someone else to use if it's lost or stolen.
How do I link my BuckID to my Huntington checking account?
1. Choose a Huntington Checking account. 

If you already have a Huntington Checking account, that's great! Go to step 2. If you don't have a Huntington Checking account, you can open one in a branch, online or by calling 1-855-341-4OSU (4678). 

 Here's the information you'll need: 

  •  Valid state issued ID
  •  Your current BuckID 
  •  Your current mailing address 
  •  Your home address 
  •  Phone number 
  •  Social Security Number 
  •  Email address 

2. Make sure you have a new linkable BuckID. 

A linkable BuckID card has a 16-digit account number and the Huntington logo on the back. If yours doesn't, it's not linkable and you need a new one. Contact the BuckID office in the Ohio Union for more info on getting a new card for free at 1-614-292-0400. 

 3. Link your BuckID at any Huntington branch.

Will the BuckID be the only debit card I'll have or will I also get a Huntington Debit Card?
You'll have access to two cards - your BuckID and a Huntington Debit Card. Every Huntington Checking account comes with a Debit Card, including exclusive Buckeye designs. You can use your BuckID or your Huntington Debit Card to make PIN-based purchases and ATM withdrawals tied to your checking account, and your Huntington Debit Card for signature-based transactions.
So how do I use my BuckID with my checking account?
Once your BuckID is linked to your Huntington Checking account, you can use it to: withdraw cash from any ATM, make PIN-based checking account transactions anywhere, and still make BuckID transactions using the stored value on the card as you do already. Just tell the merchant which account to use when both BuckID transactions and PIN transactions are available.
Will I see the transactions I make with my BuckID on my Huntington statement?
Any time you use your BuckID to make PIN-based purchases or ATM withdrawals, you will see these transactions on your Huntington statement. They come out of your checking balance and will appear with your other checking account transactions. Transactions made within the BuckID merchant network (without using a PIN) will not pull money from your checking account and will not show up on your statement. These transactions will be applied to the stored value already on your card.
What if I have a question about a transaction?
Stop into any Huntington branch or call 1-855-341-4OSU (4678).
