Moneymax Philippines Review: 10 Reasons Why Filipinos Trust Us

1. We Make Comparing and Getting Financial Products Easy, Quick, and Free

What is Moneymax?

Moneymax is the country's largest personal finance marketplace, with our website being used by over two million visitors per month. Since Moneymax started operations in 2014, over 40 million Filipinos have benefited from our services.

How Can Moneymax Help You?

Moneymax’s free-to-use online platform makes it easy for you to compare and apply for the right financial products online. Such convenient services come very useful at a time when the risk of COVID-19 persists, and making financial transactions at home is still the safest option.

To provide our online customers with a variety of options, Moneymax has partnered with top car insurance, loan, and credit card providers in the Philippines. 

In 2021, for instance, we secured partnerships with Malayan and Prudential Guarantee—two of the country’s largest non-life insurance companies. Also in the same year, Moneymax welcomed UnionBank to its solid roster of reputable banking partners in the Philippines that include Citibank, HSBC, and RCBC.

So that Moneymax customers can compare more financial products, we have recently added 100+ new partner and products pages to our website.

More options mean better chances of finding the best product for your needs and saving your time and money.

2. Moneymax Customers Receive Exclusive Rewards

Customers who qualify for our promos get rewarded with a welcome gift after applying and getting approved for a credit card or personal loan through the Moneymax website.

We’re not talking about ordinary freebies here—definitely not the typical umbrellas, keychains, and similar merch!

In fact, we have given away a lot of high-value gifts such as Apple AirPods, GCash, Nespresso coffee machines, and shopping vouchers, among others, to successful applicants. All welcome gifts are authentic items from legitimate and trusted distributors.

Truly, Moneymax is the marketplace for rewarding financial experiences! Check out what customers say about the free gift they received from Moneymax.
