is the penalty of falling below the maintaining balance is penalized daily or counted as 300 pesos daily? if not how comes that when my account falls in 500 pesos remaining and when i deposited 2000 after 5 days, i checked my account but it was only 920.36 pesos remaining instead of 2200 if we're going to deduct the 300 penalty. Can you explain this.
Hi, if i fall from my mainataining balance for only a week, will it still be deducted the 300 peso penalty? Even if i deposit again and complete the maintaing balance of 10000 before the end of the month

My mom has a BDO Peso Saving Account but it wasn't used for almost 4 years, on her last transaction it was shown that she still have P30,000 deposited in her account. Is there any possibility that the money is still withdrawable? And also, she has a ATM card. Is this still activated evn it wasn't used for 4 years? Hoping for your reply! Thank you.

Good day! I have a power teens account and 17 months ago I had no choice but to withdraw 1700 from the maintaining balance which is 2000php due to financial concern of mine and for the whole 17 months my account only contains 300php.I just wanna ask if the charge is only 300 pesos even if I wasn't able to deposit for that long period of time? I'm hoping for your answer. thank you. Cause I'm planning deposit again maybe next next week.
I opened a BDO peso ATM without passbook last February 2014 and it was below maintenance during March. I withdraw some of it again , leaving 2oo pesos left on my account.. Then by now it's already zero right? So i just want to close it instead. There's nothing i have to do right , like filling up a closure form ..because it would be automatically closed as time goes by without a charge. ??
Then i would want to open another one if i had much money.

Im planning to close my account in BDO anytime soon. When i first opened my account in BDO-Tanay, i wasnt informed of your penalty policy for the maintaining balance, the girl I spoke to didnt inform me anything about it. I wasnt aware of your penalty that time until recently. Ive been charged total of Php900 (3 times deduction of 300php). I was very disappointed with this policy. I will just stick with my other account from a different bank.
Hi I have account in bdo with passbook and amt, I have available balance of 1000php.i never deposit money since 2012 and I Was planning to deposit money to my account.my question is my account is still active?
Hello.. My BDO account with passbook (5000 maintaining balance) got blocked because it has fallen out of its maintaining balance. I withdrew cash around 1-500 but my father deposited money so i think it got covered up. But my account still got blocked. Will it be permanently close? Thank you so much
hi...i opened a passbook account in bdo for 5ooo this month and i used some of the money i took out 2500 today,if i cover up the money i took out and put back the 2500 to fix required deposit next month and put more they will still charge me,are they just gonna charge me 3oo in a month or they will charge you continuesly
Hi, I would like to ask if and how is the computation / rules for charging from failure of maintaining balance. For example, I did withdraw all my 2,000 peso maintaining balance for two weeks. How is that. THanks.
why is it that the other banks if you open an account which is a personal they are just the same check number and the passbook number? the other question is, if you deposit a check in that checking account, can i still withdraw it?
Hi, I want to clarify the policies regarding penalty:
It takes one month (30 days) before you get penalized, right? Before you get penalized, though, when you replenish your maintaining balance before the 30th day, you won't get penalized, correct?
Then how come, according to my transaction records as well as my personal written financial trackbook, I got penalized when I have replenished my maintaining balance last July 30th and haven't touched it until today, August 26th?
Is there any possible reason I should get penalized despite that?
hi, what exactly the date is for the cut off in keeping the Maintaning balance, Is it end of the month, meaning if I am below Maintaining balance on the 29th, is it still okay. Should I only be charge after it reach the 30th or the end of the month. Tanks
I just wanted to ask if how would we know our balance, it seems that we're out of the country..we wanted to do online banking but the problem is, we need to activate the card in the machine...is the're any other option in order to do online banking...
I have a peso atm without passbook and I think I withdraw all my money on it and then I forgot to deposit again. I think I withdraw it feb this year and because I leave last March and went to US for four months I wasn't able to deposit, and 'til now I haven't deposit any money on my account. My question is, are they going to close my account automatically? Or are they going to charge me? Even though its empty?
I just want to ask, if when should be the penalty deducted if ever my account falls its below maintaining balance.Is it daily? monthly? or yearly?. And can I still cover up it, so that it will not be totally close.
