banks with no maintaining balance

 

I wanted to open a Philippine Savings Account for the purpose

of saving for a rainy day.

 

I have also a relative abroad that occasionally send me money

by way of a remittance and I need a savings account for that

purpose.

 

It has been my trait to sometimes withdraw all my money in the

bank only to be charged a penalty afterwards for being unable

to maintain the required maintaining balance.

 

I then decided to look for Philippine banks with no maintaining

balance requirement.

 

I searched for a bank where I can do the following banking

transactions.

  • Make a deposit
  • Withdraw money anytime and anywhere
  • Pay bills online
  • Do online banking and shopping
  • Receive money from abroad and locally
  • Transfer funds to other banks
