  • Ang basis nila ay yung credit rating mo. Para makakuha ka ng mataas, magpakita ka ng proof of income na malaki sweldo mo at may stable job ka at matagal ka ng employed. Makakaulong din kung nagbabayad ka sa lahat ng loans mo on time.
  • Makatulon din ba kung referenxe ko yun othet card ko na mas malaki yun limit?
  • Makakatulong din but the best proof of financial capacity is still proof of large and stable income.
  • Is it advisable to get multiple credit cards assuming you are a good payer?

    nasa paggamit lang yan.^_^ kahit madami ka cards kung alam mo ang limit mo ok lang.
  • May risk pag madami cards dahil mas mahirap mag monitor ng due dates at mag keep track ng spendings. Pero ok siya kung mahilig ka mag avail ng mga promos.

    Lately mas malakas na ko gumamit ng debit cards like paymaya and gcash for online and digital purchases dahil bukod sa madaming promos, wala ka na din iisiping due dates and penalties.

  • i was billed 3500 membership fee ng Citibank Cash Back Platinum MasterCard. (i saw it in my citibank online) tinawag ko to waive ang sabi di daw nagwawaive si citibank sa lahat ng cardholders this year. so sinabi ko na magkano lahat ng outstanding balance kasama outstanding installment payments ko and i will pay outright the whole balance less the membership fee. I will pay online and email her the receipt ASAP then cancel the card.
    sabi wait lang daw, after 9 seconds (exacto kasi binilangan ko) sabi niya kung pwede daw enroll ako to get a simplicity card, i said no.
    then another 6 seconds pause, wait 2-3 days daw ireverse/waive na nila membership fee. and she would need my oral confirmation that i am not cancelling the card.
    so sabi ko " Ok, I will not cancel the card as long as the membership fee is waived." ulitin ko daw na wala yung as long as. I didn't and hung up.
    I have never ever paid a membership fee in my life.

  • good job sir
  • Lately mas malakas na ko gumamit ng debit cards like paymaya and gcash

    What are the usual promos that you use and how do you fund them? Are they exactly like paypal?
  • Cash backs, rebates, instant discounts. 50% discounts. Etc. Madami. Madami din ways to cash in. Sa akin i cash in via online banking.

    Mas less risky din online dahil pwede mo i-limit laman ng account mo kung magkano lang kailangan mo. Maski zero balance kung di mo pa kailangan, ok lang.
  • Instant din kadalasan yung rewards and rebates di gaya ng bdo na matagal kaya madami silang chance na dugasin ka. Hehe.
  • Meron offer sa akin ang BDO na Cash from Available Credit Limit at 0.88% add-on rate/month for 12 months to pay. Is it a good deal?

  • ^
    parang mataas sir
    0.59 lang usually offer sakin ng CITI, minsan mas mababa pa
  • @ssi
    Factor in the cost of annual fee dahil baka gawin nilang reason for declining waiver yung binabayaran mong utang.

    good point sir. thanks
  • pwede ka makipagbargain nyan, sabihin mo may offer say yun kabila mas mababa tignan mo kung tatapatan nila.
  • Kakatawa yung bpi. I called them last wednesday afternoon regarding credit to cash. Sabi ng csr yung offer ay .99 percent lang talaga nakatag sa account ko, di daw talaga magagawan ng paraan na pwedi yung .48%, kahit sinabihan ko na mas mababa yung offer sa work ko, which is for our provident loan ay 5 percent per annum yung interest rate.
    After a few minutes may nagtxt, ang alert ng bpi, haha. Offering credit to cash @ .59% up to 36 mos but the principal is low, less than half of my cl and available madness. Pwede ba yun i negotiate na taasan yung principal o ibawas sa madness limit at a lower interest?

  • I just found out that metrobank has cancelled my credit card due to no activity. May ganon na pala ngayon. Pag tawag ko, confirmed nga na nagka cancel daw sila pag hindi ginamit yung card ng mga 6 to 10 months. Bago sa akin yan. May ganyang patakaran na pala.


    may online access ka ba?

    alam ko malaki yun madness madalas
    IIRC 250k sinabi available sakin pero 70k palang limit ko nun time na inoffer
  • Nag inquire ako last wednesday din, same lang sa CL ko na 70k. 9 months pa lang kasi CC ko. Kaso yung offer as much as 32k lang. ang baba at mataas yung interest compare sa provident loan.
  • may online access ka ba?

    Meron kaso walang kwenta online banking nila. Naka active pa yung card ko doon. Maski yung M free card na pina cancel ko na years ago nandoon pa din.

    nakupoh
    plano ko pa naman i-tengga itong MB plat na ito, until the replacement card comes (2022).
    i guess single transaction every 6 month, pwede na
    gusto ko kasi palakihin limit nung citibank ko, gawin ko sana main card for 2 years.
  • @ninja
    Di ako sure kung rule talaga nila yon. Baka case to case basis din. Kasi ang sagot din sa akin is 6-10months so by discretion din siguro sila magputol ng inactive accounts.

    bro nun tumawag ka sa kanila, nag offer ba naman na i-reactivate?
  • Ang sabi lang sa akin is pwede daw ako mag apply ulit. Nahiya na din naman ako at di na ako magaapply dahil ayoko talaga ng mb. Naalala ko lang sila dahil may promo sila sa shopee. Maliban doon wala ako balak gamitin ulit. Hehe.

    alam ko malaki yun madness madalas

    matagal na akong bpi cc holder pero kunti lng alam ko about sa madness limit. nag pa credit-to-cash ako last time nagulat ako malaki yung madness limit ko parang x2 ng available cl ko..anu ba yung madness limit?parang installment limit din ba tuwing may installment purchase ka nagiging x2 yung limit mo?sabi kasi sa akin, yung pina credit-to-cash sa madness limit daw ma deduct so yung actual available cl ko is ganun pa rin..wala naman kasi ako nakikita sa bpi online ko regarding sa madness limit na yan
