Bank of Commerce Credit Card

Sino sa inyo may Bank of Commerce credit card? Napadaan kasi ako sa isa sa mga branch nila sa Makati and nalaman ko na nag ooffer pala sila ng credit card. They are offering two cards, classic and gold visa credit card. Actually nagagandahan ako sa design ng cards nila. Gusto ko lang malaman if ok din ba tong bank na to? San Miguel eto so malamang stable bank eto.

    I have a classic VISA. This is the dual currency card licensed from BDO. That is the only feature I find attractive. This bank is quite stingy when it comes to waiving annual fees. There is a Bank of Commerce branch near the office, so it is still convenient to pay, but I am told they are contemplating a transfer to another location. If that new location becomes less accessible, I will shut down my card.

    BoC is a relatively small bank, and the owners do not seem to be willing to put money into it to make it bigger/better. In fact, they have been considering selling out to foreign banks.

    But if you are borrowing (as a credit card holder) from this bank rather than lending (as a depositor) to it, its stability should not matter much to you.

    Oh I see, Thanks sa infos KuyaDanny. Pero mukha namang ok din sila kasi dumadami branch nila. Pero siguro kuripot tong bank na to sa pagbibigay ng credit limit kasi kilala ang san miguel sa pagiging kuripot. May rewards system din kaya sila and promos?

    Possible. Their rival Maybank is already prominent here. They might want to be next.

    ako meron since 2011 pa. Everytime na gagamitin ko reference *** card ko denied ako. Nag apply ako BPI one time, di ko dineclare tong BoC na to, ayun naapprove ako. akalain mo.

    I just received notice that bank of Commerce will be discontinuing its dual-currency VISA in January/February 2015 and will be replacing its cards with a peso-only MasterCard. :(

    I am assuming that their fee structure will be the same.

    As my card is up for renewal this month, I have decided to terminate it.

    Magiging MasterCard na rin ang BoC? Parang si UnionBank nagkaroon na ng MasterCard na brand... Parang maraming nagbibigay na ng MC na brand ngayon a.

    Diba etong banko na to is planong bilhin ng CIBC (China) or CIMB (Malaysia) para sa kanilang Philippine expansion.

    Pinalitan na nga nila ang kanilang credit card from Visa to MasterCard. So sa BDO dati galing iyung Visa nila? Pero ang tanong ko ngayon, is there such thing as Founder Members ngayon sa kanila?

    I just received the BoC mastercard CC that will replace my Visa. I have yet to activate it. Medyo mahirap kumontak sa hotline nila. Medyo hassle magbayad kasi medyo alanganin for me yung location ng branches nila.
