Since I was having so much trouble with BDO, I thought I would try to sign up for BPI's Direct Savings Bank Account. It's an account you apply for online and considered more or less an internet bank. You have a branch of convenience for when you need to transact in person. It was a breeze. They sent me a few emails with some additional questions and it did take a few weeks for it to be approved. Here is the email I got after the approval. As you can see you can get an account with just about any ID.


Greetings from BPI Direct Savings Bank! Your ATM Account Opening Kit for your BPI Direct Savings Account will be available* for pick-up on August 07, 2013 at your chosen branch of convenience.
