Metrobank Fun Savers Club

Updated on August 13, 2012
Source

Saving up for the future is a great idea thus making it more enticing with a savings account on hand. Metropolitan Bank and Trust Company, widely known as Metrobank, has an exclusive savings account for kids and teens 7-18 years of age. As young as they could be, the realization of frugality's importance and benefits may strike them well.

Note: Metrobank is one of the top 3 banks in the Philippines along with Banco de Oro (BDO) and Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) :)


First and foremost you need to bring with you the following requirements:

  • Two (2) 1 x 1 recent ID pictures
  • School I.D (must have at least 2 photocopies)
  • Birth Certificate Xerox Copy (bring along the original for verification purposes)
  • Php500 for the initial deposit (and also the maintaining balance)

IN-TRUST-FOR ACCOUNT

Kids (even babies!) below the minimum age requirement can still gain a savings account of their own. This is the ITF Account or In-Trust-For Account. Parents/Guardians should bring the following:

  • Original Birth Certificate of the Baby/ Child
  • 2 valid IDs of whoever is opening the account for the minor
  • 1 x 1 picture of the parent/guardian
  • 1 picture of the baby


Some details about the Fun Savers Club Savings Account:

  • Minimum initial deposit is 500 pesos
  • Maintaining average daily balance is 500 pesos
  • Minimum ADB to earn interest is 4,000
  • Free educational trust benefit worth 50,000 for accounts reaching minimum average daily balance (ADB) if something tragic happened to the parent/s .
  • Free personal accident insurance worth twice the ADB, not to exceed P1 million (with minimum ADB requirement)
  • Exclusive discounts and privileges from partner establishments (mentioned BELOW)
  • Peso or US Dollar savings accounts are eligible for enrollment


Fun Savers Club Gift Check (FSC-GC)


The FSC GC is a special gift check intended to initially fund a new FSC Account or to add funds to an existing FSC account. It is an ideal birthday, baptismal, graduation or Christmas gift for children below 18 years of age. A perfect gift alternative for any occasion.

The FSC GC can be purchased over-the-counter at any Metrobank branch for P500.00 only.

Product Features

  1. Minimum Amount: P500.00
  2. Eligibility:
    • Purchaser: Depositors and Non-Depositors, Individuals and Corporate
    • Beneficiary: Individuals below 18 years of age

Benefits

  1. Easy to purchase. Relatives/non-relatives can do away with documentary requirements in account opening. Provides value-for-money gift alternative
    • an affordable gift
    • a gift that offers more than its cash value-- freebies, discounts, insurance and educational benefits to club members
    • a lasting gift
  2. Ensures the customer that the gift is used as intended (that is, to encourage saving)




Welcome Gift

Have I mentioned that there is a welcome gift upon opening an account? An insulated lunch bag indeed! Though based on my experience, they didn't give it to me immediately. I was told that the gift's out of stock. I just made further actions.;)

      This was great on several levels. I voted up and useful as well.

      One, it is a great thing to not only encourage kids but to clearly show them how to do those things we encourage them to do.

      Two, it is a great thing to not only encourage kids but to clearly show them how to do those things we encourage them to do!

      THANK YOU GUYS!!! VERRYY!!

      :)

      I REALLY appreciate your warm welcome!! THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH!! You HAVE helped me made my decision!! :"D

      I thought about quitting for I am only 17 years old. I didn't know that in order to use Google Adsense, one should be above 18 years of age,, they recommended that I should have a guardian/parent with me. I was having second thoughts because I wanted to surprise them in the future about this thing, but I guess I should ask their help about it. :)

      THANK YOU SO MUCH!! YOU GUYS ARE MY INSPIRATION!! :D

      -LOTS OF LOVE from Sakaki! :")

      You are most welcome Sakaki. I was lucky enough to start and be welcomed by Tom, you saw him above. Because he welcomed me many others came too. I am just so proud of the hard work you put in to create this. I did it because anyone who puts forth such effort deserves it. My first hub was so bad that I only leave it up so new people can see how NOT to do a first hub. I thought I was blogging, lol. I'm glad you had such a nice surprise waiting for you here.
