Sending money to a BPI Passbook Account

Recommended Posts

Anyone had experience sending money to a BPI Passbook (Savings) Account? Need to send her money to pay fees. My fiance sent me her account number but want to make sure this won't be an issue being a savings account.

I send to BDO (not BPI) all the time.  As long as it is a depository account then all should be good. Savings accounts accept deposits but typically only have limits on how many withdrawals you can make in a month

I send money to a BDO acct from time to time.  Easily to do.     Doesn't matter if it is savings or checking ... 

 

I use REMITLY   http://www.visaconnection-philippines.com/cfo-orientation-seminar.html   (scroll to the bottom of this page for info)

I send money to BPI using Remitly.  It is instant and goes straight into my wife's account.  They have great exchange rates and the fee is only $3.99 for the transfer.

If you send $200 or more via XOOM (bank to bank), then the fee is waived for an instant transfer.  I just checked and the difference between XOOM and Remitly's exchange rates are only marginally different
