Unionbank Philippines Launches A New Online Banking Web and Mobile Tool!

I was opening the Unionbank website today to pay my bills when I was greeted by an announcement saying that they are introducing the Unionbank Online, their new online and mobile banking tool. And yes this is different from their eBanking and uMobile services. The two are still existing though to serve you, at least for now. My hunch is that sooner or later, those two services will be shutdown to make way for this all-new service.



So let me pass on the news about this new tool. Here's 3 things you need to know.

1. Available in Mobile and Web

The new service is available to three platforms: Android, iOS, and Web
The apps can be downloaded from Google Play and App Store and the web version can be accessed via https://online.unionbankph.com/

2. You need to register again. 

Yes you do. The uMobile and eBanking username and password will not work. But don't worry, the sign up process is extremely easy and user friendly. Just follow the intuitive procedure.



3. The User Interface is super user friendly!

Large fonts, distinctive buttons and really mobile-centric design. This is in stark contrast with their eBanking service which can be really confusing. Here's a look of the web version.


And here's the iOS mobile app version. 


My Experience with Unionbank Philippines

I've been with Unionbank since 2007 because it's my employer's payroll account. So far, I appreciate how Unionbank uses technology to enhance their services. Unionbank is the first to allow transfer of money from Paypal to a deposit account.

Security-wise, I haven't heard of any incident where Unionbank customer data has been hacked or money was stolen.  They're quite good at this. In fact, they're the first that I know of among the local banks to employ a two-factor authentication in their online services. I'm talking about their requirement of a PIN and Transaction password to do online transactions. 

We'll in 2013, I personally experienced a glitch whereby my money was reduced by 75%, but that's a technical glitch rather than a breach. It gave me a little cringe but my money was restored to normal after a few hours.


My only complaint about Uniobnank is their domestic toll-free line. I'm living outside Manila so I have to call a long toll-free number. As if dialing is not a pain in itself, I remember hearing their auto-message and background music for as much as 30 minutes before an operator finally answered my call. That was a few years ago though. My recent calls to Unionbank has been a lot faster than that.

  7. But the men that went up with him said, We be not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we. And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature. And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight. friv game 2020 || kizi || abcya4

How Much Does a MRI Scan Costs in the Philippines?

My dad recently needs to have a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan for his prostate problem. So I made a little research on how much does it cost to have one. Well, turns out, it depends on many factors such as which part of the body is to be scanned. There's also this technique called "MRI with contrast" wherein the patient will be injected with a chemical to make the scan clearer. For your information this technique of adding contrast is know as Gadolinium Contrast Medium. It adds cost to the procedure but with more clarity, the more you can trust the diagnosis.

So, in my father's case, we had a Prostate MRI and I assume it's without contrast since he was never injected with the "contrast" chemicals. We got it in i-Scan Healthcare Inc here in Quezon City. The cost is 13000 Pesos. Please take not that the amount was just for the scan and the result will be read by a separate professional. Some laboratories offer this service (i.e. the reading) and t…

FREE Calls to Your Favorite Fast-food Chain on Globe Phones

In the age of mobile apps and ordering via internet, people are increasingly going from "calling" to "tapping and clicking" their fast food orders. The arrival of Honestbee, Foodpanda and just recently, Grab Food is a testament to how much this trend is growing. The visual effect these apps provide has a huge advantage over voice only "call".



In an apparent attempt to pull back some users in using the hotlines, Jollibee Group teams up with Globe Telecoms to allow free calls on their Globe handset to order from their favorite fastfood. Yes, even without a load, you can make a call to the Hotlines. Here's the promotional poster.

Just dial these numbers to order:
Jollibee - #87000 Mang Inasal - #71111 Chowking - #98888 Greenwich - #55555 Burger King - #22222

SCAM: My First Scam Text This Year; 850000 Pesos from GMA Kapuso Foundation

It's a brand new year for everyone, including local scammers. And despite all the efforts by PLDT and Globe Telecom to curb text message scammers, from time to time, they still creep out and show up in our inboxes. And as hard to believe as the messages of winning some great amounts of money is the fact that there are still people who believe them. I personally know someone and that scam text message triggered events that turn her life upside down. So my point is, we still need to be careful regarding these scam messages. The danger is real!


So without further ado, here's the scam message I received a few days ago. On Sunday, January 7, 2018 at exactly 3:33PM (PH time), I received this message from a certain Atty. Jhon Acosta with phone number 09552962911
