Hi. This website is cool. Anyway,just wanna ask if is it possible to transfer my savings from BDO Savings (Debit) Account to BDO Kabayan Savings? I’m currently working here in Eastern Province, Saudi Arabia. Before I left PH early this year, I had opened two separate accounts for my BDO Debit (payroll account for my previous company in PH) and Kabayan Savings in two different BDO Branches in Manila. When I got here, I learned lately that I cannot withdraw my savings from my debit card using ATM facilities here. What should I do then? Can I ask your advice please? Thanks! MP

Hi,
Maybe you can send your debit card to Philippines so your family can withdraw it.
I don’t know how can you do it.

Gil, How long does it take to issue a bank statement? I need it for my visa application right away.

Gil May 7, 2011 at 02:35

Hi,
I’m not really sure. It depends on the bank, maybe it will take one week if it will be sent through snail mail.

Hi Kristina,

Just apply for an ATM account with online banking service.
You can have both when you apply at BDO.

I just wanna ask if i can use my atm even if it has no money in it??

Reply

Gil May 2, 2011 at 23:09

Hi,

If there’s no money in your ATM for a long time, maybe it is not active or it is closed already.
And you can’t use it anymore, just check it at any ATM.

BDO has no online application for savings account. Try BPI Direct.

hi, im confused. i want to open an account for my daugther on junior savers club. i like to know how much is monthly deposit required or are they have a limit in deposits. thanks!

Reply

Gil April 25, 2011 at 09:05

Hi Jade,
The initial deposit is P500 according to BDO’s website.
There’s no monthly deposit as long as you are in the maintaining balance.

Reply

Gil April 3, 2011 at 13:51

Malou,

Normally, banks don’t allowed that because your presence is needed when you apply for a bank account.
They want to see you are really the signatories in the application forms.
If you have a relative working in the bank maybe you can do that. He or she can help you to have a bank account.

Reply

Gil April 2, 2011 at 00:51

Hi Erwin,
Just make an authorization letter that you want to apply a debit card and the person you are authorizing to do that application.
Send all requirements, like IDs.

The bank should accept that IDs. Just tell them that its your only ID.

Hi Vilma,

i’m not really sure if BDO has online application for savings account but I do know BPI direct has online application.
You can visit BPI direct if you’re interested.

Hi, I did apply in BDO with two “valid ” IDs except that maybe the other is not really a ” valid ” for them ( a voter’s id and a philhealth card id).. Considering that the philhealth office is just right in front of there office.. Across the road.. But the representative who assist me that day and that was NOV. 4, 2010.. Did not accept my philhealth card as a VALID ID.. Which are the only id I have..
Can you explain that???

I would like to inquire if bdo has the same choice like BPI ( automatic transfer of savings.) Because my company bank is BDO, i think we cannot automatic transfer from BDO to BPI as automatic transfer savings.

Hi Genie,

BPI has also no automatic transfer to other banks. But they do have BPI to BPI auto-transfer service.

Hello Mr. Gil,

How can I reactivate my bank account?
How many days does it take for the bank to close an count with zero balance?

I hope you can help me.

Reply

Gil March 24, 2011 at 11:55

Hi Mary,

When BDO updates your account and they found it has zero balance, they will automatically close it.
Because there’s zero balance and they need to charge you a dormancy fee.

Reply

Gil March 21, 2011 at 22:56

Hi Marissa,

If you’re husband opened the account, the account name should be in his name not yours. I think it is the reason he can withdraw from that account.
When opening a bank account, you cannot use other people’s name even if he or she is your spouse.

Hello, I opened my first BDO account 2 days ago but I stupidly forgot to ask something. I got an atm with a passbook, my question is, how do I withdraw and deposit, do I have to line up inside the bank to withdraw using my passbook or do I just directly withdraw using the card not needing to go to the teller and stuff. thank you, really hope you reply soon…

Reply

Gil March 17, 2011 at 22:41

Hi Ann,

If you want to withdraw or deposit, you can do it through any BDO ATM.
Just insert your ATM card and input necessary PIN.
