Unionbank EON Card

It took me a long time before I got a hold of my EON card. I applied online last May 11. It is said that after 5 banking days I will be able to have my card. I went to the branch office of Unionbank last May 16 and my card is not yet available. The bank representative told me that they are encountering problems with VISA. He told me to call them from time to time. I called them on May 26 but the card is still not available. Then I called them once a week until June 27, friday. When I called them last June 27, I was very happy when the bank representative told me that my card is now available. I immediately went to the branch bank and I paid the annual fee of P350.00 and deposited P150.00. The bank representative told me to check if my account is activated by next week. She told me she still need to send my documents to their Cebu branch because they are the branch who is in charge of all EON cards. Then I tried checking my card last July 2,Wednesday. When I was able to check my balance, I immediately changed my PIN number. As soon as I got home, I applied for a cyberaccount. I thought my cyberaccount will be activated after 2 bankings days but friday came and my card is not yet activated. I read in Pinoymoneytalk that your card will be blocked if you change your PIN number before you use the card for any transaction. I was anxious by then. Then I wrote to Unionbank about my issue. But everyday after that, I check if I can access my cyberaccount. Then on Monday, July
7, I can access my cyberaccount. I was really happy. Then after a few hours I was able to add my EON card to Paypal. After a few minutes, I was able to have the EXPUSE number and then at last I was able to verify my PayPal account. I am now a VERIFIED PayPal user.

Here's the timetable
  1. Applied on line - May 11, 2008
  2. Went to branch - May 16, 2008
  3. Started calling the branch - May 26, 2008
  4. Obtained EON card - June 27, 2008
  5. Paid annual fee - June 27, 2008
  6. Deposited P150.00 - June 27, 2008
  7. Card activated - June 2, 2008
  8. Applied for cyberaccount - July 2, 2008
  9. Cyberaccount activated - July 7, 2008
  10. Added to Paypal - July 7, 2008
  11. Received EXPUSE number - July 7, 2008
  12. Add EXPUSE no. to PayPal - July 7, 2008
  13. Verified PayPal user - July 7, 2008
All in all it almost took me 2 months to verify my PayPal account. Patience is really a virtue.

Wow, good for you! I'm still in the process of getting mine set-up although I was told by a rep yesterday that my account was activated. She just couldn't say since when. I hope I can add it to my PayPal. I applied for it last April and I still haven't gotten it up :(

Btw, this is saber_kite from Pinoy Money Talk ^_^

Hi! I wrote an email to the customer service last friday, July 4 and I got their reply today, July 9. As you know my problems were solved last July 7. I asked them to solve other EON problems. I told them that I have a netfriend who have problems with EON since April. :)

ladykristinn October 6, 2008 at 6:49 PM  

Check ko ang paypal ang hiningi is last 4 digits. Check ko rin card ko, ung last 4 digits na nakalagay sa card is same sa last 4 digits na nasa paypal. Not 3 digits.

vHiNz,  October 6, 2008 at 9:14 PM  

nope im asking po about the CVV not the 4 digit expuse by the way po nabasa ko ung mga proofs mo about odesk what pong project ung gngawa mo? student pa lang ako eh gusto ko sanang itry ung odesk this sembreak hayz sana m verify na paypal ko i need to wait some weeks pa bago ma add card sa paypal ung eon ko.huhu

ladykristinn October 6, 2008 at 10:17 PM  

What's the CVV? Hindi ko na kasi ma remember kung na encounter ko yan eh. I just followed the instructions. Sasabihin rin kasi kung you get the 3 digit at the back of the card. Base sa sinabi mo, I would assume that the last digit in your case is the one in the back of the card because the card number of EON card was grouped by 4's. Eh di sana last 3 digits ang nakalagay. That is only my assumption ha.

About Odesk naman, I am currently doing research projects. What ba course mo? Mas marami kasing opportunities sa computer-related

vHiNz,  October 11, 2008 at 3:20 PM  

im verified user na po hekhek

ladykristinn October 11, 2008 at 11:05 PM
