The HSBC Credit Cards are a preferred plastic currency option in the Philippines. HSBC Bank is a global banking behemoth with assets spread across the planet, and Philippines serves as one of its premier bases in Southeast Asia. Patrons who subscribe to the various credit card offerings from HSBC Bank in the Philippines are eligible for some great reward options on individual swipes of their cards. These rewards/bonus points can be redeemed in favor of specific products or services, through HSBC’s homegrown rewards catalogue as well as web portals/ retail outlets that have partnered HSBC for precisely this reason.
The basic premise is very simple. Use your HSBC credit card to affect a charge/payment and if the quantum of the charge is in line with the basic requirement as defined in the terms and conditions defining such promotional programs, you are appropriately ‘rewarded’ with reward points. Next, you can redeem these points to purchase a product/service, that is sufficiently described and displayed on the HSBC sponsored ‘Rewards Catalogue’ website.
