BDO Rewards Card Needs Bank Points to Prevent Cancellation

Are you a BDO Rewards card user? 

This is one easy way to earn some money for groceries or store items after earning points.
One point equals one peso. Ilang beses na rin ako nakagamit ng points to pay my SM Supermarket groceries.

Now BDO requires that you earn BDO bank points to maintain your BDO Rewards card. This means that if you do not have bank points within 2 consecutive years, your BDO Rewards card will be cancelled, including all points that you have earned.

How can you earn BDO bank points?

The easiest way
—> Pay your bills using your BDO online banking or atm or phone banking.
     Payment of a bill amounting to at least 1,000 pesos gives you 5 points.
      If US dollar account, payment of at least 25 US dollars gives you 5 points.
      Splitting of transactions is not allowed.

Other ways:

  • Use your BDO atm debit card to pay your purchases, such as in supermarkets, SM department stores and other partner retailers.
       1 point for every 1,000 pesos, up to 5 points per transaction
  • Send remittances from abroad through BDO Remit offices or remittance partners to your BDO savings or current account.
       1 point for every 1,000 pesos or every 100 US dollars
  • Use your BDO Credit Cards
       500 points for 3,350 Elite Credit Card Points (MasterCard Platinum, Visa Platinum and UnionPay Diamond credit cards)
       500 points for 4,775 Regular Credit Card Points (Standard and Gold MasterCard, Classic and Gold Visa, JCB Lucky Cat or Premiere and UnionPay Gold credit cards)

    Note: Call the BDO Rewards hotline to have your BDO Credit Card points converted to BDO Rewards points

  • Maintain at least 50,000 pesos in your savings or current account.
      10 points for the first 50,000 month to date average daily balance
       If US dollar account, 10 points for the first US$1,000 in month to date average daily balance
  • One-time awarding of points for these:

    Auto Loan
    : 10 points for every 100,000 pesos

    Home Loan
    : 10 points for every 100,000 pesos
  • You also get points for these accounts:

    Peso Trust Accounts
    : 10 points for the first 500,000 pesos in average daily balance

    US Dollar Trust Accounts
    : 10 points for the first US$10,000 in average daily balance

Yesterday, I received a replacement BDO Rewards Card for my old card which did not have an expiry date. The new card has now an expiry date. Okay na rin kasi sabi naman ng BDO, wala raw payment ang renewal card.
