    HSBC Revolution Card

    [Promotions and Perks] I signed up because HSBC is running a new-to-bank promotion till end Aug 2020: Samsonite Luggage or SGD150 cashback + SGD30 Grab rides when apply online with MyInfo. Note that this requires minimum SGD800 spending within qualifying period. [Fee Waivers] HSBC has announced enhancements for the card from 1 Aug 2020 onward. One great enhancement is that annual fee is perpetually waived, how awesome is that! I can't think of another credit card with no annual fees. [Useful For...] Most people are not aware, but the HSBC Revolution Credit Card can be both a Miles Card or a Cashback Card. This is because, spending will be rewarded with HSBC Rewards Points, and you can redeem Rewards Points to miles or cashback as you wish on the rewards catalogue! However, do note that each $ spending is split into base points ($1 spending: 1 base point) and bonus points ($1 spending: 9 bonus point - limited to the first $1000 spending each month only). Bonus points are only applicable to online & contactless purchases, and only at selected merchant codes, mostly related to: Travel, Dining/Entertainment/Supermarket and Retail/Shopping. [Miles Card] With effect from 1st August 2020, every SGD1 spent = up to 4 air miles. >> In comparison: the DBS Women's World Card, requires spending to be converted to points in blocks of $5, while HSBC Revolution Credit Card points can be converted for every $1. But DBS Women's World Card's bonus points are available up to the first $2000 spending, while HSBC Revolution Credit Card is limited to the first $1000. [Cashback Card] With effect from 1st August 2020, every SGD1 spent = up to 2.5% cash rebate. [Others] HSBC is also offering a balance transfer offer for new HSBC Revolution Card customers, at one-time promotional rate of 1.68% p.a for 6 months, one of the lowest in the market to my knowledge. It is valid within 3 months from the card account opening date. [Card Hacks] In general, HSBC Revolution Credit Card is a great card to be added to your wallet, given it has no annual fees from 1 Aug 2020 onward. To maximize benefits, use the HSBC Revolution Credit Card for online & contactless purchases in the Travel, Dining/Entertainment/Supermarket and Retail/Shopping catergories each month, limited to the first $1000 spending each month only.

    HSBC Revolution Card

    This is honestly one of the most underrated card! [Who is it for] This card is a great card for anyone looking for a miles card! [Card Features] Before July 1 2020, HSBC revo was a great card to pay insurance premiums and school fees (2mpd for online transaction) that most banks excludes. But, with effect from July 1 2020, HSBC will be excluding insurance premiums and etc. However HSBC Revo has revamped their rewards program! Starting from August 2020, they will be offering 4mpd for online transactions and contactless transactions (only applicable for apple pay or visa paywave; do note that it is not applicable for samsung pay, googlepay and etc). Not all contactless and online transcations rewards 4mpd, for full list of the mcc do refer to hsbc website. But most transcations that we use daily would award 4mpd. [Application Process] Do apply for the card online using myinfo for quick approval. Not only that, by applying online via myinfo, you will receive $30 worth grab ride vouchers. Applying at roadshows will not award you the $30 grab rides and the process would be slower. [Card Hacks] HSBC credit card holders get to enjoy the free entertainer app by HSBC! It offers 1-1 food deals and 25% off takeaway deals! Do note that the entertainer app by HSBC is not the full entertainer app version, there are lesser merchants available. But nonetheless, I think this is great considering the fact that you do not have to pay any annual subscription fees! In comparison to most banks that offers 4mpd for contactless and online transcations, I personally prefer HSBC. HSBC award points by rounding their transactions to the nearest dollar instead of in blocks of $5! This means that it would be useful for small transactions. [Promotions and Perks] HSBC offers sign up bonus of $150 cash or a Samsonite luggage when you apply for a HSBC card (new to bank customers only) when you spend $800 within a month. As long as you spend $800 by the next month your cards get approved you will be able to receive the sign up bonus. I would suggest applying at the start of the month, so that you would have more time to hit the $800. (e.g. if you sign up on August 2 or August 20 and you cards gets approved in August, you will need to spend $800 by 31 September, by signing up on August 1, it allows you to have more time to meet the minimum spend) [Customer Service] Even though HSBC does not have a live chat like DBS, but their customer service hotline is quite helpful! I once lost my cc, and they sent me a replacement card very quickly. [Fee Waivers] From August 2020, there will no longer be annual fees for HSBC revo! I am definitely looking to earn more miles with HSBC from August onwards!

    Nothing special as compare to other credit cards in town. The best feature is the 1-for-1 HSBC entertainer however with limited choices.

    Signed up for the card due to the one time $150 cash back reward for $800 spend within first 2 months. For its main monthly rewards, it's a so-so card. The hotline is quite bad, had to hold more than 20 mins during non peak.
