I was thinking of opening a checking account at Equitable PCI because
the bank branch is closer to Ateneo and having an account there will
make it easy for me to pay the credit card bill. However, Equitable
Card Online Services only works with Microsoft Internet Explorer.

On the other hand, BPI supports direct deposit, which may make it more
convenient. I like tracking the breakdown, so that means I’ll still
need to claim the pay slips, but I guess that works out too. According
to http://www.bpiexpressonline.com, I can transfer to non-BPI
accounts, although I need to pre-enroll.
The BPI Direct program looks very intruiging, as the checking account
earns 2.0% per annum – the same rate as savings, more or less.
