BPI to convert Kaya Savings to Regular Savings account on January 15

BPI has announced to convert the Kaya Savings account to a Regular Saving account effective January 15, 2021.

Kaya Savings is a savings account with no maintaining balance and has a minimal fee for withdrawals.

With the transition, it will now have a required initial deposit of PHP 3,000. It will also have a required minimum monthly ADB of PHP 3,000 and a required daily balance of PHP 5,000 to earn interest.


Other changes include no fees for a client-initiated transaction (which formerly costs PHP 5 per transaction) and PHP 300 Monthly Service Charge if required ADB falls below the minimum. There will also be a Monthly Dormancy Charge if the account holder fails to maintain the required minimum balance. Previously, Kaya Savings Account holders will be charged PHP 30 starting on the fifth year if the balance goes below PHP 200. Now, the charge remains the same, but the balance must not be below PHP 3,000.

Meanwhile, these product features will be maintained upon conversion of the Kaya Savings account to a Regular Savings Account:

  • Interest-earnings on savings
  • Access through BancNet ATMs nationwide and in MasterCard ATMs globally through a BPI Debit MasterCard
  • Cashless shopping using BPI Debit MasterCard in BancNet or MasterCard-accepting merchants
  • Funds transfer via QR and/or enrollment of the account
  • Bill payments to over 600 merchants by enrolling in the bills payment facility
  • Instant reload of cell phones and prepaid cards via BPI’s online and mobile banking channels

Do note that there will be no new card to be issued upon conversion, and the existing card remains valid and effective.

    If this is the initial deposit of BPI, then do not open an account with this selfish BANK OF PHILIPPINE ISLAND.

    We opened a kaya account because we cannot afford the maintaining balance of 3,000. And now you are converting kay’a savings to a regular savings that will compell us to have a 3,000 maintaining balance. What a crap.

      How can you do this to your customers especially to a student who had 1,100 pesos before the pandemic and now you’ll gonna take all of his hard earned money by saving through his allowances until it dries? Where are your conscience?

    Charging service fee without notice. I almost run out of balance because of this. You should be ashamed of stealing money from your customers.

    BPI why did you not send me any notification about this transition? my email and phone number is up to date..only notifying me of getting loans and promos but why not notify me about this one. im using my kaya account for accepting payment transactions and since i didnt know about this covertion i was surprised that you deducted 3 months of that service charge wiyhout my knowing. That is STEALING MONEY from your customers..you must be ashamed of that wrong doing.

    i open kaya savings cause i can not afford to have a maintaining balance. Now suddenly you converted it to a regular saving without informing your customers and deduct the P300.00 on my account.
