Are bonuses in? Deluge of balance checks slow down Landbank, Union Bank, BDO apps

Netizens were equally frustrated and amused when they noticed how a handful of their mobile banking apps lagged on November 15, a payday.

It appears that everyone was stoked to see whether their balances became bigger because of bonuses and crediting of the 13th month pay.

A viral post from John Mark Ureta showed the Sy-blings’ BDO, the Aboitiz family’s UnionBank, and government-owned Land Bank apps became temporarily inaccessible on the same day.

BDO even took a while to restore their services that it merited a social media advisory.
