There is a plethora of premium tier Credit Cards available in Singapore, the HSBC Visa Infinite is one of them. Previously, the HSBC Visa Infinite awarded you with a welcome gift of 35,000 miles (in HSBC Reward Points) upon paying the $650 annual fee (or S$488 if you’re a Premier Banking customer).
As of today, the HSBC Visa Infinite would give you 40,000 Welcome Miles (given as 100,000 HSBC Rewards Points) upon payment of the annual fee. This is essentially purchasing miles at a cost of 1.625 cents per mile (or 1.22 if you’re a Premier Banking customer)
Also, some notable perks of the HSBC Visa Infinite include :
- Unlimited Priority Pass access for both the Main Cardholder and Supplementary Card holders
- Complimentary Travel Insurance when charging your travel fare to the card
- Complimentary Limousine transfers and Airport Immigration Fast Track (Read : whisked away in a buggy) with a minimum spend of S$5,000
- Visa Luxury Hotel Collection perks (although to be fair this accrue to anyone with a Visa Infinite card, even the no fee CIMB one)
Although the annual fee is still rather high, if you’re able to make full use of the Priority Pass privileges it could well be worth getting the card now for the increased welcome bonus.
