1.) from my understanding, get started includes life insurance for the account holder. so pag namatay yung account holder, the beneficiaries will receive something.
2.) BPI and BPI Family are different banks. if you have a BPI family bank account, you cannot deposit via BPI lang and vice versa.
3.). if you want to open a BPI family account, dapat sa BPI family branch ka lang pumunta. same with BPI that if you want to open a BPI account, sa BPI branches ka lang pupunta. you're correct. mas madaming branches ang BPI.
4.) depende sa branch. although acceptable na ngayon ang one ID, many banks still require two IDs.
5.) depende din sa branch. most BPI branches, sandali lang makukuha mo na agad yung ATM mo.
6.) yes, puwede magwithdraw anytime. 20K per day ang limit ng BPI ATMS.
7.) yes. http://www.bpiexpressonline.com/ is a great online facility. you can transfer funds, pay bills, etc.
8 Lastly, pwede ba mag-open ako ng ibang account sa kanila? For example, if meron na akong Get Started Savings Account tapos gusto kung mag-open ng BPi Direct Save-Up, pwede ba yun? It is treated as two separate accounts or just one under my name?
yes, i think puwede ka mag-open ng several accounts. yung BPI direct save-up, you can open up to 4 accounts ata.
