MCI, FIRST UNION TEAM UP TO OFFER SAVINGS FOR FRIENDS AND FAMILY ON THE MOVE

 ARLINGTON, Va., Feb. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- If you or someone you know is moving, you could be eligible for special savings from MCI and First Union through the bank's "Movers and Shakers" program.
 First Union customers who provide the bank with the name, address and phone number of someone relocating to Florida, the Carolinas, Georgia, Tennessee, Virginia, Maryland or Washington, D.C., are eligible for special "Shaker" discounts from MCI. "Shakers" will also receive "instant win" game cards for discounts on banking services from First Union and will be eligible to enter a drawing for the bank's $10,000 grand prize. People moving to these states who join MCI and First Union will receive "Mover" savings from MCI.
 Movers and Shakers are eligible for the following discounts from MCI:
 -- Savings worth $33 on MCI Personal 800
 MCI Personal 800 is a residential toll-free service for customers who travel and need to call home frequently or wish to make it easier for others to call them without incurring a charge. Callers can forward all Personal 800 calls to a second location with MCI's "Follow Me" feature. Personal 800 "Follow Me" is an especially useful feature for movers who may have temporary residences or are difficult to locate at the time of the move. New customers will receive MCI certificates worth $33, which can be used for free MCI Personal 800 calling over the next three months.
 MCI Personal 800 service can be combined with any of MCI's long distance savings plans and is offered separately for customers who don't choose to switch their existing long distance carrier. Personal 800 calls are priced at a low flat rate of 25 cents per- minute regardless of the distance of calls or the number of calls made, plus a monthly subscription fee of $5. No call surcharges or installation fees are incurred. MCI also offers Friends & Family Personal 800 which allows Friends & Family customers to have their own Personal 800 number and get a 20 percent bonus savings on each call from other MCI customers in their Calling Circles.
 -- Savings worth $20 on MCI Dial "1"
 New MCI Dial "1" customers will receive a $20 savings certificate for choosing MCI as their long distance carrier.
 Interested persons can participate in the "Movers and Shakers" promotion by calling toll-free, 800-473-3568. Registration forms are also available at all First Union offices. First Union's Interstate Relocation Service, which opened in 1990, has already assisted thousands of families. The service allows potential customers to open checking and saving accounts by phone and to transfer funds electronically from an old account to a new one free of charge. First Union then makes sure a box of new checks is waiting for the customer at his or her new branch.
 First Union Corporation (NYSE: FTU) reported assets of $51.3 billion as of Dec. 31, 1992, and operated 896 banking offices in Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, one banking office in Tennessee and 45 savings bank offices in Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia and Florida, and 190 non-banking offices in 36 states and the District of Columbia.
