BPI Express Mobile App’s one of the first banking apps available locally, which you can access either through your smartphone or a tablet. It has never been easier to inquire account balance, transfer funds or even pay your bills directly right at the palm of your hands.
However, it can only be accessed with an online connection either with Wi-Fi or a cellular data. This is where Globe Telecom comes in partnership with BPI Express, in which it takes care of the data charges by making it totally free to use the mobile banking app via Globe’s data facility.
Another good news is that this promo needs no more registration. All you have to do is to turn on your Globe or TM’s cellular data access by going to your settings, tapping Mobile Networks, then choosing Data Enabled. Just take note to make sure that you’ve turned off any opened apps or any background running apps or widgets that you know that makes use of internet connection to avoid unnecessary incurred charges.
To be explicit about it, the following transactions are what’s included on free access inside the BPI Express Mobile App: Balance Inquiry, Funds Transfer, Bills Payment, Prepaid Card Reload, Prepaid Mobile Reload, Subscribe/Redeem Investments, Change Password, Enable/Disable Transfer to Anyone, Checkbook Reorder, Stop Payment Order, Enroll Additional Account, and Enroll 3rd Party Account.
Leaving the mobile app will incur regular data charges. Just in case you’ll ask if you can access BPI Express Online site for free, then the answer is actually no. To download BPI Express Mobile App, just head right to App Store for iOS devices or to Google Play for Android. Also take note that downloading the app will also incur charges, and only using the app is actually covered with the free data banking.
The promo is currently available for both Globe postpaid and prepaid, and even TM subscribers. BPI Globe Free Data Banking promo officially started last April 30 and will run till August 31, 2014. For more info, you can check out their site as well.
