Reason Why This is Not to be Missed

This Credit Card complements the HSBC Revolution Credit Card very well. Great for ‘low spenders’ to earn some amounts of cashback on our already incurring expenses. Offering 6% Cashback or 5.6 miles per dollar specifically on the following -

✅ Versatile — Cashback or Miles, Choice is Yours

Similar to the HSBC Revolution, in the form of reward points, you’ll earn either 6% Cashback or 5.6 miles per dollar. If you’ve later, decided you don’t want cashback or miles you can switch around between the 2.

✅ No minimum Monthly Spending

No more going close to month end and be like ‘OMG, I’ve another $100 to spend in order to get 8% Cashback’ (😏 can you guess which card is this? haha)
