How to Get or Apply a UnionBank EON Card (bank account)?
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.

Opening an EON card is easy and simple. To apply for an EON Card, follow the steps below:
Bring the needed requirements to open a Unionbank EON Card:
Government office ID (e.g., Armed Forces of the Philippines, Home Development Mutual Fund [HDMF] IDs)
Certification from the National Council for the Welfare of Disabled Persons (NCWDP)
Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Certification
PRA Special Resident Retiree Visa (SRRV) ID
Other valid IDs issued by the Government and its instrumentalities
2 pieces 1x1 or 2x2 ID pictures
Bring the original copies of the ID's and you must photocopy/xerox them. The bank requires a photocopy of the id's. Please note that the branch may require other documents and information such as your Tax Identification Number (TIN) and SSS Number so please have this ready.
Go to a nearest or to your preferred UnionBank branch and submit a fully accomplished EON Cyber Account Application form. This form will be provided by the bank.
Pay P350 for your first year annual fee. Bring your initial deposit (not required but recommended) so that you can start using your EON account. For me, I initially deposited 350 pesos. You'll be told by the bank to fill-out an application form. And pass the necessary requirements.
Waiting Period for Claiming
You can claim your EON Debit Card after 1 week. After you receive your card, you need to wait 2 days. Then, enroll your EON card in Unionbank website (www.unionbankph.com/).
Enrolling Your EON Account to Unionbank's Online Banking
Go to the official website of Unionbank (http://www.unionbankph.com). Click the EON Cyber Account link on Unionbank's homepage. This where you are going to enroll for Unionbank's online banking.
After registering and logging in to their website, you can see your amount deposited there.
Unionbank EON card will expire in three (3) years. After 3 years, you should renew your EON card to continue using it. Here's an article on how to renew your expired EON account: "How to Renew Old Expired Unionbank EON Card?"

Hi, How can I open an EON account even if I'm unemployed? I am 3 months jobless now and searching for a new work. I do have online work but my income there is not that high, It didn't even reach 100$ a month. Is that ok?
Im 17 and i badly need money on internet like paypal, I actually have a metrobank debit card but it is not approved by paypal. I'm just a year younger would this be possible? maybe? to have my eon account on unionbank
Hi already have eon account but inactive for the last 2 years. Can i just open another 1? i read that once the account is inactive you have to pay 500 per month, so its reasonably to open another account instead of paying 12000. Old card will expire this July 2014. Thanks in advance.
ok if 18 yrs old cant get an eon union bank account like me. Can my parents get an account but my paypal name and info will not match to my parents ? Can i still use or change my paypal name? Please help me..
mike edhel yusi, your parents can apply and get an EON card. You can create another Paypal account which should be named to your parent(s). It's not possible to change your Paypal account name to another person's name according to Paypal's policy.
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 out
it is so easy to get the EON debit card on Union Bank as long as you have all the requirements needed for apply.. like me.. its just 1-2 hours only, it will take 2 hours if there are many customers waiting.. :)
Hi, thanks for the helpful post. I just graduated and the only ID I have is the official alumni ID issued by the college. If I bring an NSO Birth Certificate and a Barangay Clearance/Certificate together with my alumni ID, would these be enough? Thanks.
I want to ask if is it possible to get an EON card for my friend. He's credit card is being denied even if it's legitimate. For whatever reasons maybe he's block listed in the credit cards companies previously...He wants this card because this kind of card will also help discipline himself in terms of finances.
Hello Good afternoon..I went to Unionbank a while ago...I asked if what's the requirements for applying a EON(Debit Card). The lady told me to bring two valid ID's and a Reference Number..Where I can get the Reference Number?
