How to Get or Apply a UnionBank EON Card (bank account)?
||admin · 19128 · · 12-January-2014|
UnionBank EON Card is useful for offline and online transactions. Though EON Card is not a credit card, it has more advantages than the credit card. EON Card (or EON Debit Card) has minimal fees and no maintaining balance. You can open an EON Debit Card Account for only 350 pesos. 350 pesos is its annual fee for the bank. You can initially deposit any amount for as little as 100 pesos. It has less documents required for opening the account.
The documents required to open an EON Debit Card are listed below. You can use EON Debit Card to purchase in any Unionbank affiliated stores such as SM, Robinsons, Ayala, Gaisano mall and many other major stores in the Philippines. You can also use this card to purchase products or services in the internet - "online shopping". Online shoppers and online entrepreneurs are using this card to purchase anything in the internet. Like me, I use this card when I purchase products in Ebay, Amazon or any other e-commerce websites. I also use EON Debit Card to purchase domain and hosting for my websites.

I went to Unionbank SM Cebu branch few months ago. The lady in charge (who was rather grumpy) told me I couldn't get an EON card because I need to present a proof of income or whatever. I told her still a student so she suggested I should ask my parents and have them apply instead. My parents are not in the country and they are very busy they can't attend to such small matter. She told me I need someone that has a JOB in order to apply for this. I also told her I've read stuff on the net about other people who are students(without showing proof of income) being able to get this card.
I should have got that lady's name and reported her, she has a severe attitude problem. UGH. Well, anyway, I hope you guys can help me. I wanted to purchase something online and my parents don't trust me with CC anymore because I maxed ou

, just present your school ID.
Yes, if your a freelancer from ODESK, your employer can transfer money to your EON account through Paypal.
, you're lucky enough that you recieve your EON card earlier than 1 week. It also depends on the Branch.
If you can't access your account, contact Unionbank's customer service email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
