LandBank savings accounts for October 2022

A Landbank savings account has restrictions on withdrawals, no check writing or associated debit card features, few possibilities for transfers, and no overdraft protection.

Types of Landbank savings account

Landbank offers five different savings accounts which applicants can choose from, depending on their wants. They are:

ATM savings account

This is a regular savings account that also pays decent interest. During regular banking hours/days deposits can be made in person or through a cash deposit machine (CDM). You can make withdrawal transactions in person or at any bancnet ATM. Any point-of-sale (POS) terminal of partner merchants from department shops, supermarkets, and accredited venues displaying the bancnet brand is likewise acceptable for cashless transactions.

The minimum initial deposit is ₱500, the required minimum monthly ADB is ₱500, the necessary daily balance to earn interest is ₱2,000, the interest rate per annum is 0.05%, and the maximum ATM withdrawal is ₱50,000 a day.

The closing fee is ₱300.

High yield savings account (HYSA)
