Take note, I only mentioned a “BPI” branch because I’m not sure which other offices are open on Saturdays.
Meeting a bank schedule during weekdays is a challenge for some, so having an office on a Saturday is a great idea. I thought all BPI branches in a mall are open during Saturday, but I was wrong.
Previously, I got an issue with my personal loan’s final payment. Arrggg. It was endorsed to collections and I was informed to pay a particular amount over-the-counter.
I wasn’t able to pay it during a weekday, so I decided to pay it on a Saturday. The problem is I dunno which branches are open.
I finally found out that BPI in Shangri-La Mall, Mandaluyong is open, so I decided to do my business there.
For convenience, I made an appointment online via BEA [BPI Express Assist]. I reserved a slot at the first interval which is 11:00 am to 11:30 am.
I was surprised when I saw a bunch of people upon arriving. Some are already waiting outside due to demand lol. I still squeezed myself inside and wait for my number to be called.
As usual, online BEA is the best! I only waited 5 minutes and I was assisted immediately. My payment has been processed in just one or two minutes. Good job!
Business Hours and Location
BPI Shangri-La is open from 11am to 7pm on a Saturday [subject to change]. Their office is located at the 5th floor just below the cinema or across BDO.
If coming from the entrance in MRT Shaw, just take the escalator going to the 5th floor, then enter the mall at the right side. BPI is near the entrance and only takes a few seconds to reach.
As usual, I recommend BEA Online to avoid long queue. It’s a life-saver for those who have an online account.
