    This is good news.

    I thought it is complicated to get a checking account.

    I also prefer to pay checks because it is less headache. My only is concerned then is to fund the account.

    Thanks for sharing

      That’s also what I thought.
      Good thing it was easier to apply for a checking account with BPI.
      If you have an online account with BPI, you can transfer your funds online to your checking account.
      You’re welcome. 🙂

    I remember, in some of the teleseryes that I’ve seen before, the kontrabida or the matapobre character issues the check and the bida would refuse to accept it or even tear it off in front of her/him.

    ^ This is so funny because I remember this, too, very well! LOL

    Janice, ask ko lang, saang branch ka naaprove…. Ako din di na approve sa BDO, need ko pa naman, kakainis sila, 3 years nna ang account ko and on/off syempre and pera mo. Sabi nila i need to have at leasr 50k daw sa account ko.
    at kailangan i maintain ko daw na ganoon lagi ang balanse, so disspointed talaga ako. By the way, saan branch ka nag open baka ma approve din ako.:)

    This sure is very helpful! My boyfriend’s lola asked me to get a checking account para sa kotseng kukunin namen (2nd hand). Naguumpisa palang kame sa pagpupundar ng gamit so ang unang reaction ko was “what??! Hindi naman ganun kadali kumuha ng checking account eh!” Mali pala ako 😀 Thanks so much po for the info 🙂

    I applied for a checking account and attendant says it will take 5 to 7 workings days to get the checkbook.

    I just tried to apply for a checking account at BPI and the main requirement they require is to the PURPOSE!? What is my purpose in applying for a checking account. I have no purpose and was declined. I have a six digit savings account with them. Maybe it depends on the branch?

    • Janice says:

      But why are you applying for a checking account nga ba? 🙂
      You sure you want to have a checking account for nothing? 🙂
      I’m just curious also… hehe
