HSBC has launched a recurring payments promotion that runs from now till 31 October 2021. Registered cardholders can earn up to 4 mpd and a S$50 cash rebate on selected recurring payments by charging them to HSBC credit cards.
This represents a great opportunity to earn some extra cashback on transactions that normally wouldn’t qualify for rewards, like insurance and donations.
HSBC Recurring Payments Promotion
HSBC cardholders will first need to register by filling in this form (use the gift code RECUR). Registration must be done by 31 July 2021.
Once registered, cardholders can earn up to a S$50 cash rebate by charging recurring payments at eligible merchants to their HSBC card from 1 August to 31 October 2021.
- 1x unique eligible merchant: S$15 rebate
- 2x unique eligible merchants: S$30 rebate
- 3x unique eligible merchants: S$50 rebate
This offer is capped at the first 2,000 qualified customers, and transactions must be made with one or more of the following merchants:
|Clubs & Societies||✅|
|^No 4 mpd with Town Councils (9399)|
#4 mpd available with Economist and NY Times (5968)
*No 4 mpd with Seletar Country Club (7992)
Cardholders must charge at least one eligible transaction to their registered card per month for a period of three consecutive months (i.e. one transaction in August, one in September, one in October at the same merchant).
Each transaction must be at least S$10 in value, and here’s the crucial part- you must not have had a recurring transaction with that particular merchant on any HSBC card from 1 April to 30 June 2021.
For example, if you already used your HSBC Revolution for a Gojek transaction in May 2021, taking a Gojek ride each month from August to October 2021 won’t count towards this campaign. It’s unfortunate, but those are the rules.
You’ll notice I’ve added a column in the table above indicating which categories are eligible for 4 mpd with the HSBC Revolution. These are the categories you’ll want to aim for in order to minimize the opportunity cost of participating in this promotion (e.g. it’s not a good idea to switch to the Revolution for Disney+ (0.4 mpd), given how you could earn 4 mpd with the Citi Rewards).
While your transactions need to be across different merchants, they need not be across different categories. For example, you could charge recurring payments to both Singtel and StarHub during the August to October 2021 period, and earn a S$30 rebate for 2x unique eligible merchants.
Can supplementary cardholders register?
Supplementary cardholders cannot register for this promotion, but their spending will be consolidated under the main cardholder’s account for the purpose of accumulating the relevant minimum qualifying spend.
When will the rebate be credited?
The cash rebate will be credited by 31 December 2021.
Terms and conditions
The full T&C and FAQ for this promotion can be found here.
With the wide range of eligible merchants, most cardholders should be able to find at least one or two categories to pick up bonus cashback. In fact, you might as well shift your insurance transactions here for a few months, since earning S$15/30/50 cashback is better than earning nothing with other cards.
