How to Auto-Reload your BPI Amore Card | Finances 2018
I discovered something new today!
I have been wanting to setup my payroll account to "auto-save" but I have not been able to get around to setting it up. Then, upon playing around the BPI site, I discovered that I can just use my debit card to save up! I have been using it as an "extra" savings card, but I think this is a great way to build a savings fund as well!
By extra savings, I remove any amount that I can't withdraw from the amount I get bi-monthly on my payroll account and then subtract it from my actual pay. I transfer the difference to my debit card.
For example, I earn 10367. I can only withdraw in either 1000s, 500s or 100s. I can't withdraw 67 so that goes to my debit card. That way I have a constant flow to my savings account. This is only one of the ways I save up, and I'll share more tips and tricks with you in the future.
Anyway, enough of that ramble. I'm sure you clicked this to learn about how to setup the auto-transfer. This is beneficial to parents, or anyone who's giving allowances to their kids or dependents. When I was in college, I also had my own card which my father used to send me my allowance every week.
Okay, I swear I'll talk about the auto-transfer now. :D
First, log into your BPI Online Banking Account.
Once you're logged in, look for Payments & Reloading. You can find that on the tabs on the upper part of the screen.
Select "Prepaid Cards", then "Scheduled Reload" and lastly, "Schedule Reload".
You will be taken to a page where you can setup your auto-reload scheme. I chose to auto-load 500 every month for six months to my card. You can freely customize this, but it can only be done monthly and quarterly, and not weekly or bi-monthly.
Once done, just select submit and you'll get a confirmation page like this:
Click OK to finalize your settings and you're good to go!
I can't believe it was that easy to setup an auto-reload system! Now I can be sure that I have a steady flow into my savings for at least six months! It's a little step, but a huge step as well. :)
