SECB Security Bank : Deposits

cotton_oncotton_on strive for greatness ✭✭✭
OK ba magkaroon ng bank account sa Security Bank? for a change lang.


  • metropolitanmetropolitan the truth hurts, does it? ✭✭✭
    Bakit naisipan mong magkaroon ng account sa Security Bank?
    Hindi naman malayo ang pinagkaiba ng Security Bank sa iba pang mga commercial at universal banks.
  • cotton_oncotton_on strive for greatness ✭✭✭
    ^actually may account na ako sa BPI (it was converted to a savings account and it was previously then a payroll account, then the company I am currently employed opened a new payroll account for the employees)

    maiba lang sa mga very mainstream na banks like BPI and BDO.

    I am inquiring if stable ba yung security bank when it comes to handling accounts of the depositors.

    Security Bank has a market capitalization of P67.8 Billion. By that measure I think it is stable enough for your needs. You should evaluate based on other criteria, such as location of the branch, product/service offerings, and competence of the staff.

    Historically, this bank's target market was medium scale enterprises and large corporations, not retail (individuals). However, they are opening new branches left and right so the situation might be changing.

    Yes, they definitely are going after retail now:

    For those who choose a bank based on the beauty of its endorsers, it's hard to go wrong with Megan Young, with or without a Miss World title. ;)

    This looks very promising. Sa kanila nalang ako mag open. For 100K dami perks. Sa HSBC nganga ang perks kahit nasa 600k na ang deposit namin dun. Thanks for sharing Kuya Danny!

    I opened an account with Security Bank just last week. I took the advice I got from this forum and went to a branch that was new (i.e. in the process of getting new customers).

    True enough, the service was excellent and the staff who assisted me was knowledgeable. There was very little paper work as they enter your info direct to the computer then once done, they print it for you to sign. I got my atm card and internet access codes immediately.

    Now for the bad part. Somehow, their system failed to link my ATM card to my account (so basically I cannot use it). My internet banking is also 90% not working. When I called, I was told it is related to my ATM card problem.

    I went back to the branch to report the problem. But until now, it hasn't been fixed. My account is basically useless to me and no timeframe was given to fix the problem.

    So I'm going to close my account (or leave the minimum for 30 days then close it to avoid the fee). In theory, their service aspirations are very good but in practice, it didn't work for me.

    ^Anong branch yan pards?
  • markapinyamarkapinya Member ✭✭✭
    It's in QC.

    In the end, nagdecide ako to just keep the account :) Nag effort naman talaga yung taga branch to get their systems people to fix it.

    Can't help but compare them with the staff ng big blue bank. Nung nagka problem ako na system related din ang ginawa nung branch staff tumawag sa call center nila at pinasa sa akin yung phone para ako ang kumausap, hahaha (indeed they find ways)

    I also admit to being bribed. Yung gold card nila had some good coupons that I can use. At me free upsize din sa coffee bean, lol.

    @markapinya binigyan ka ba ng pre-qualified cred card?
  • ^ helen balitaan kita bukas. mag open kami sa security bank.
  • helen2014helen2014 Member PExer
    thanks undomesticatedme :)
  • opened an account yesterday. we got the build up savings regular and deposited 150k to avail of the gold circle membership. we were issued the atm, passbook and gold circle card in less than half an hour. also, they helped us in submitting the application for the gold credit card. this is pre-qualified, so subject for approval pa daw although it says naman sa gold circle leaflet that all gold circle members have "free credit cards" so we'll see...
  • helen2014helen2014 Member PExer
    @undomesticatedme kelangan ba may work kapag mag aapply ng credit card? Wala kasi ako work eh pero may monthly pera na pinapadala sa akin. Ano sinubmit mo sa pagapply ng gold credit card?
  • we submitted our IDs lang. wala naman iba hiningi though we are self-employed.
  • KuyaDannyKuyaDanny Moderator PEx Moderator

    Wala lang. Happy Birthday to Miss World, Megan Young! :)
  • Ok ba credit cards ng security bank? I was planning to apply one kasi may payroll card ako dito...saka papatulong ako sa boss hehehe

    Finally used my gold card today. And the priority service is indeed true. Ang okay kasi discreet. Unlike sa BPI na nakikita mo yung preferred clients na inuuna ng mga tellers, sa Security Bank dun ka lang sa new accounts table. Then sila na pumupunta sa likod ng teller to process your transactions. So no dagger looks from those na matagal nang nakapila.
  • markapinya nagamit mo na coupons? hehe. di pa namin magamit ang "perk" ng gold kasi pag pupunta kami ng branch walang tao parati. hahaha!
