Hello! Someone is gonna pay me with Bank Manager's Cheque daw kasi mejo malaki pera. I don't fancy cash din kasi may bad experience na ako with bad elements. How do I verify if its authentic or may funds? Thanks!

    Try PNB accout....but it's a non-interesting bearing account.

    I'ts Php 5,000 for opening....and maintaining

    Chinatrust. 2K ang opening and maintaining. Interest-bearing pa. Log on to www.chinatrust.com.ph for more details. :)

  • Ano requirements kelangan para makapag open sa chinatrust? Ilang id's and all that?
  • thehitmanthehitman PEx Veteran ⭐⭐
    As with most banks, two valid IDs and cash.

    is there a bank that allows you to open a checking account without having a savings account first? :hmm:
  • I opened a maybank account for 3 thousand pesos only and there is no need for you to have a savings account.

    P3K na ung maintaining nya? how much ung checkbuk?
  • KuyaDannyKuyaDanny Moderator PEx Moderator
    Checks cost P147.50 per book (personal 50 pcs) or P295.00 per book (commercial 100 pcs) at three banks I called this morning. I don't see why the price should be any different at other banks.

    yeah 3k ang maintaining and 150 ang checkbook, with ATM account ka na din nun. minimal pa requirements, wala ng CI o kung ano man tawag dun. Yung araw din na yun ang approval ng account mo.

    pag naman chinatrust, san meron atm machines cla?
  • Sa Chinabank P5000 opening and maintaning and P20000 maintaining to earn 1% interest pa. The good thing about their current account is that it has a passbook, an ATM card, and a monthly statement.
  • the cheapest is ALLIED BANK P5000 initial deposit but P1000 lang maintaining bal. its called NOW ACCOUNT..but u must be refered by sme1 who has NOW ACCOUNT ..
  • Sabi sa website nila, 5K na ang opening sa chinatrust.

    Sa palagay ko ok sila. Time deposit na 1K lang? Ayos...
    Na enganyo ako :)
  • Centennial Bank..P2000 maintaining, minimum lang naman requirements, no need to open a savings account, no need to be referred. With interest din. Best of all, wala gaano pila sa cashier(at least sa ortigas branch). Yon nga lang, konti lang branches nya...
  • ^ that's good! Keep the info coming guys...

    Pumunta ako sa Maybank (Ortigas) last week.

    Sabi you have to open a savings account first with 5,000 and two valid IDs, then wait one month while they do a credit check on you. If everything turns out OK then they might consider you for a checking account.
