    coming from one of the local banks with its own credit card affiliate, i was given several complimentary cards for personal & representation purposes but instead, i use AIG CC, why? coz depending on your use, they can waive your annual fees, waive finance charges, give you separate & free dental and health card which are really usable. also, if you use it abroad, they have one of the lowest conversion from US$ to petot. also, when buying high ticket items like appliances, you usually pay for the cash price rather than the regular price (i.e. credit card price).

    these are things i suggest you look for in a card:

    1. flexible payment facilities (i.e. otc, atm, on-line), the more the better.
    2. higher credit limits and if you can go for those cards with separate peso & dollar credit limits, the better.
    3. generally lower financing rates for installment purchases and revolving payments.
    4. capable of offering photo card option for added security.
    5. with built-in option to waive charges.
    6. domestic AND international toll free access number. this is convenient & cost efficient coz, aside from regular landline, you can even use the payphones. just imagine if you're based in the province or went out of town & you need to call the card company. there's one very popular card in the city which doesn't have this

    things that are usually generic among various cards.

    1. you either get mastercard, visa, diners or amex. the first two are most accepted locally.
    2. revolving payment option. be careful, once you get hooked to this, it may take you a lifetime to pay the principal if you go for the minimum payment option.
    3. gives freebies or discounts (i.e. on top of points or rewards) when you use the card to pay for groceries, or when you dine-in, or at other establishments.
    4. computerized call center that usually takes forever before you can actually talk to a warm blooded human being.

    also, most card companies nowadays offer points per use which you can accumulate and exchange for rewards, others just call it differently while others even offer travel miles.

    sir, i guess you were given what we usually call complimentary cards (i.e. you need not apply, they just give em to you). this is no accident, banks & credit card companies are on the look out for prospective clients too and you were probably evaluated to have a good credit history.

    sorry for the long post, hope this helps...

    My current credit card is BPI Gold Mastercard. Security Bank just gave me a Mastercard - free annual fee for the first year. I heard Standard Chartered is offering credit card with lifetime free annual fee.

    Long time user of BPI creditcards. Of all the CC providers I've had, I personally think they're the best. I have had no hassles and no bad experiences with them. I used to have a Citibank CC but I decided to drop them because I really had bad experiences with them and even if Citibank would be the last CC provider on earth, I would never get another CC from them again.

    BPI MC, Citibank MC at HSBC MC ang aking cards.

    Puwede mong i-view ang mga transactions mo online at doon magbayad. Sa HSBC, puwede siyang bayaran sa

    BPI- medyo mahirap gamitin sa ibang bansa. Pero ang Citibank, walang problema, pati na iyong aking HSBC MC. Sa ibang establishments nga sa US, iba ang pila sa cash at card,- at napaka-ikli ang pila sa card, kaya mabilis kaming nakapag-transact. Gulat nga ako!

    Waive ang annual fees ng BPI, Citibank at HSBC MC sa akin...

    Isa pang maganda sa Citibank,- puwede mong ikarga ang lahat ng utility bills mo (kuryente, landline, cellphone, cable etc),- para isang bayad na lang. Mas gusto ko ito kaysa sa BPI ko na babayaran mo pang isa-isa... Mahirap malimutang magbayad,- baka putol kuryente o telepono na ang kasunod...

    BPI MC ngayon ay may chip na sa loob ng card.
