Important Advisory on your Finance Charges and Minimum Amount Due

Please be advised that effective May 2, 2019, the following changes will be applied to your BPI Credit Cards.

1. The interest computation of your unpaid balance from the previous Statement of Account (SOA) shall now be computed based on the Daily Balance vs. the current Average Daily Balance. The daily interest is computed by multiplying the daily balance with the daily interest rate applied for each day that the balance is unpaid (360 days annually). The daily interest will be aggregated within the statement period. For the sample computation click here.

 

2. The Minimum Amount Due shall be computed based on the Total Outstanding Balance as follows:

If Total Outstanding Balance (TOB)

 

Minimum Amount Due (MAD)

a) Less than or equal to P850

=

Total Outstanding Balance

b) More than P850

=

A percentage of retail purchases, cash advances, fees and charges, installment amortizations and 100% of past due amount or P850, whichever is higher will be applied:

    a. if computed amount is less than P850 = MAD is P850

    b. if computed amount is more than P850 = MAD is equal to the computed amount
