BPI Blue Mastercard Review: Requirements, Features, and Fees

I recently got approved for a BPI Blue Mastercard — something I did not expect as I forgot the time I filled out an online form, received no verification calls, and simply got notified about the approval via SMS.

While it’s my sixth credit card, it is worth comparing to the other cards, particularly in terms of application requirements and process, benefits and features, and annual membership and other fees, among others.

Quick Summary — BPI Blue Mastercard is a recommended entry level credit card (for beginners) as it comes with easy application and approval process, competitive fees, and decent rewards. It can also be a good reference card being issued and backed by one of the largest banks. Read the complete review below.

BPI Blue Mastercard

As BPI promotes it, BPI Blue Mastercard is the ‘sensible credit card’ and the best choice for spending on everyday needs as well as big, planned expenses such as travels and vacations.

It comes with year-round discounts, freebies, and installment options from favorite stores while earning rewards points which can be redeemed as airline miles, shopping credits, and gift vouchers.

BPI Blue Mastercard Complete Review

While this is not a sponsored post, just like most of the review articles on this blog, and I don’t earn any commission, you can always take this as an honest and fair review of BPI Blue Mastercard.

[1] It comes with an easy online application process and minimal requirements. Online application takes just a few minutes, same with uploading of documents. It has also one of the lowest minimum annual income requirements.

Depending on situations, BPI may or may not bother you with multiple verification calls, but with a reference card and complete application requirements, all you have to do is just wait for an SMS notification of approval.

[2] It is issued and backed by one of the largest banks . BPI, as the card issuer, has proven a track record of sustainability and stability, although historically, major system glitches were experienced by some bank depositors in the past, something that BPI immediately and seriously addressed.

If BPI Blue Mastercard is your first credit card, then it’s worth maintaining in good credit standing for months or years as it is a good reference card for your future card applications with other banks and card issuers, especially if you’re looking for NAFFL cards.

[3] BPI has hundreds of partner merchants and shops that offer discounts and promos. Just subscribe to their email newsletter and SMS notifications for exciting discounts and promos from shopping to dining and booking international flights.

BPI even offers discount coupons and codes during mega sale campaigns of major e-commerce platforms such as Lazada, Zalora, and Shopee.

[4] BPI credit cards, including BPI Blue Mastercard, come with an eCredit Card. It is a free companion card to your BPI Card, free of annual fees and designed for a secure online use and shopping.

It comes with a lower and adjustable credit limit shared with the principal card and with a different card number for such security.

[5] The annual membership fee is waived for the first year. Last year, BPI ran a promo for waiving the annual membership fees for life with a minimum spend of PHP60,000 within the first 180 days.

While this may not be available for now, still the waived annual membership fee for the first year is a good deal and seemingly lower compared to other entry level credit cards.

You may have enough time or a year to experience the benefits and perks of BPI Blue Mastercard and decide whether to maintain it for the longer term despite the annual fees to pay.

[6] It has a decent rewards program and an impressive complimentary travel insurance. Its one (1) non-expiring reward point for every PHP35 spend on anything sounds good as well although there are other rewards credit cards that offer lower spend for every point.

But its international and domestic travel insurance of up to PHP2M without any additional fees when booking using the credit card is such an amazing deal. Complete terms and conditions can be read on their website.

[7] Initial credit limit varies, but BPI tends to be more generous than other banks when it comes to annual increases. For credit card first timers, expect that your starting credit limit with BPI Blue Mastercard is way lower compared to what other banks may offer. It’s normally just within your salary range.

With responsible use of the card and on-time payments, you will just be surprised that BPI increases your limit by double or triple your initial limit in a matter of months or most likely after a year.

[8] It comes with more flexible installment options. Yes, there are multiple options such as Real 0% Special Installment Plan with terms stretched up to 24 months and the Buy Now Pay Later which comes with the first payment up to 90 days later (subject to availability at merchant’s site).

You may even check the BPI website for the latest promos and installment plans available across various partner merchants and shops.

[9] BPI mobile app enrollment of your card may sometimes be troublesome. Your delivered card just comes with the usual details, but the app enrollment requires a ‘customer number’ which is nowhere to find and which you still need to ask the bank via a phone call or branch visit.

You may also just wait for your first statement of account (SOA) for this. Sometimes even with the customer number, the app still prevents you from enrolling your card due to your mobile number not pre-encoded in the system.

BPI vs. BDO: Which Credit Card Provider Is Better?

As two of the biggest and most popular banks in the Philippines, BPI and BDO are constantly innovated to deliver quality services to their customers.

In this article, we brought these two financial institutions to a face-off in terms of the different features they offer as credit card providers .

BPI Vs. BDO

Note: We’re outlining the details between BDO and BPI in terms of the four leading credit cards they offer.

How do BPI and BDO differ in terms of assets and market value?

The Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) was established in 1851 and is the oldest bank in the Philippines. As of September 30, 2017, BPI ranked third (3 rd ) on the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) list of largest banks in the Philippines in terms of total assets.

Banco De Oro (BDO) , on the other hand, is part of the SM Group, and is the largest bank in the Philippines, having landed the top spot in terms of total assets from the same BSP ranking.

Both banks have the largest number of branches and networks in the country. BPI currently has 831 branches all over the Philippines and is considered to have the largest network among banks in the country.

BDO has over 1000 branches in the country alone, with branches in Hong Kong and representative offices in Asia, Middle East, Europe, and North America.

How many BDO and BPI credit cards are available?

BDO offers almost three times more the number of credit cards than BPI. BDO cards are not limited to Visa and MasterCard, they ensure customer convenience by offering American Express and JCB.

Though BPI offers fewer credit cards variants ,  they offer more market-specific credit cards in partnership with Ayala Mall, Petron, and Delta Air Lines

  • BPI Amore Visa
  • BPI Amore Visa Platinum
  • Petron – BPI Mastercard
  • BPI Skymiles Mastercard
  • BPI Skymiles Platinum Mastercard

They also have the specialized BPI eCredit as a free extension or companion card for any BPI MasterCard. The eCredit card offers a more secure online shopping experience as it provides a different credit card number and has a lower credit limit.

BDO also provides a more secure online shopping experience through their Secure Virtual Card, with a different card number and credit line.

Interest Rates and Features

Customers always look for interest rates when comparing credit cards. While it’s only right to look at how much you’re going to be charged straight up, it’s far from being the only deciding factor. You must also know how interest rates are calculated, and the charges and fees that come with your very own credit card.

(Read: A Credit Card First-Timer’s Guide To Basic Credit Card Management )

Let’s take a look at two credit cards each from BDO and BPI:

Rewards and Features

After looking at interest rates, the next thing to compare is the much-coveted rewards of credit card providers. Think of it as the banks’ way of giving back to their loyal customers, and a reward for cardholders for maintaining good credit score.

Credit limit

The card limit will usually depend on the client’s credit record. Below amounts shown are only the minimum credit card limit and may change without prior notice.

Ease of transaction

Both banks have free and easy-to-use mobile banking apps which makes it convenient to monitor transactions and pay credit card bills.

Both banks also have a lot of branches in the country. You will see BDO and BPI at cities and provinces, even in some remote towns.

BDO is open on weekends in some branches. If you have urgent concerns, you can go to the nearest BDO branch even on the weekend.

Whatever type of credit card you prefer, make it a habit to compare credit cards so you find one that best suits your needs and lifestyle. Make sure to compare higher rewards earn rate, balance transfer deals, points conversion, and all the other privileges offered. After all, a credit card is only as good as how you manage it.

Best travel insurance plans for 2024: a unique and comprehensive list for travelers from international citizens insurance.

Including the Best Plans for Seniors, Global Nomads, Visitors to the USA, Pets, Adventure Sports Addicts and More

BOSTON, MA / ACCESSWIRE / May 2, 2024 / International Citizens Insurance, a leading international insurance broker, has announced the best travel insurance plans for 2024 summer travel. As the cost of airfare and hotels continues to rise along with the increase in flight delays and cruise cancellations, this list could not have come at a better time for travelers looking to protect their travel plans and their finances.

"This summer's travel season promises a high level of demand, increasing costs, and a strong potential for travel disruptions due to political unrest, weather, and other factors," said Joe Cronin, President of International Citizens Insurance. "Our clients want travel insurance they can trust to help them if they suffer a cancellation, a medical emergency, lost luggage, a natural disaster, or have to change plans due to unforeseen events. With this list, they will be able to find the best overall travel insurers as well as the right plans for their individual needs."

International Citizens Insurance judged each company and plan on six key criteria: the user-friendliness of their site, the ease of policy purchase, the number of countries plans are offered in, how extensive the benefits are, the ease of making a claim and the quality of the company's customer service. The most trusted insurers include WorldTrips , who made history as one of the first insurers to offer plans for purchase over the internet; GeoBlue Travel Insurance , which supports seniors with coverage for people up to 84 years old; and Trawick International, which offers coverage for over 500 adventure sports activities.

To help customers find the best insurance for their specific needs, International Citizens Insurance has also identified the best insurance for several use cases, including Cancel for Any Reason (CFAR) insurance, travel medical plans, and insurance with coverage for pets. International Citizens Insurance has also identified the best plans for clients with special needs, including seniors, missionaries and volunteers, U.S. citizens abroad, and digital nomads.

In today's unpredictable world, travel insurance has become the most essential accessory for any international traveler. Travelers want trip cancellation insurance to protect their trip and travel medical insurance plans to protect their health. But with so many companies out there, which ones can you trust?
