If you want to earn more from your money on your savings account in BDO (Banco De Oro), why not try BDO's Time Deposit? The safest way to earn more from your idle money is to divert it to a time deposit account. You can earn from 0.50% up to 1.12% depending on your preferred term of placement (30, 60, 60, 180 or 360 days). Let's take for example on how much money you will earn if you allocate 10 million pesos on a time deposit account for 360 days. How much will you earn with that money in 360 days (1 year) given an interest rate of 1.12%? You will earn Php 120,000 in one year.
