  1. Per it's fee schedule. Fees Schwab does not charge a fee to receive a wire into your Schwab Brokerage or Schwab Bank Accounts. Outgoing wires carry a fee of $25 per wire requested by paper form and $15 per wire requested online. Limits There are no limits to the number of wires or dollar amounts sent into or out of Schwab Brokerage or Schwab Bank checking accounts, but there must be adequate funds available to send outbound wires.
  2. Schwab brokerage charges me $15 for outgoing international wire transfer and BDO $5 for incoming wire transfer, so my total fee per transfer is $20 and takes 2 days usually to complete it. But I normally use Xoom to transfer less than $3000 for cheaper fees between $7.99 and $15.99.
  3. I returned last month and was asked to produce my ACR card, but never before.
  4. I arrived last week and am still in quarantine. The first stop after deplaning was at a table where they appeared to be confirming my booking directly with the hotel, so I'm curious as to how one can slip through with a fake booking. But I guess where there is a will, there is a way. One more thing, this one week quarantine is a PITA, and I can't see anyone doing 2 weeks of it, like in Thailand, without going bat crazy.
  5. I'm getting too old, although not yet 60, to learn all these new workaround tricks, so I'll just keep my T-Mobile senior plan. I may need to change my username. lol
  6. This is my experience with US based cards, but YMMV. As for replacement credit/debit cards for those about to expire, banks will only send them to my US addresse only. I know that because I requested for those new, not yet activated cards to be sent to me in the PI, and they refused. One workaround I found was, I would ask my relative who collects my mail to go ahead and send pics of front and back of my card which I then activate. After a few days, I would call the bank and report it lost, who then gladly sends it to my PI address, in my case, Schwab debit card and an Amex Card, bot
  7. I pay 3,199 pesos per month for 75mbps internet and cable with all premium channels from Converge. I am getting 75/75 up/down speeds and around 50/50mbps up/down through a router loaded with ExpressVPN firmware. I'm in the US at the moment but am told internet service at my home has been going on and off since the typhoon hit, and they are still waiting for repairman to show up.
  8. I guess this is the reason why they haven't refunded my throw away ticket for the flight in February that they cancelled. Oh well.
  9. According to one BI official in Angeles City I've talked to last month, you can enter/exit alone if you possess 13A, but I never thought to ask if possible with only marriage certificate.
  10. I thought those married to Filipinas, whether having 13A or not, were always allowed back in. I've been following VFamily on YouTube who just returned from the US to Bohol with only his marriage certificate and a copy of his wife's passport.
  11. As for Converge, you can pay with cc on their website.
  12. It's right next to the Clark Airport. Going there is the fast way to get your package.
