HSBC Revolution: Up to S$180 cash or Samsonite luggage for new sign-ups


From now till 2 July 2023, get a bonus S$30 from SingSaver + S$150 cashback or Samsonite luggage with a new HSBC Revolution Card.

  ⚠️ Update: From 27 June 2023, 12 p.m, SingSaver has replaced the S$30 cash gift with a US$20 airalo credit. The revised T&Cs can be found here.

The HSBC Revolution Card is one of my most-used credit cards, and a key player in my 2023 Credit Card Strategy. I use it for dining, groceries, hotels, air tickets, activities, Grab/gojek rides and more, earning 4 mpd on the first S$1,000 each month. 

If you don’t have a HSBC Revolution Card yet, here’s an opportunity to pick up some bonus cash in the process.

From now till 2 July 2023, SingSaver is offering an additional S$30 cash on top of HSBC’s usual sign-up gift of S$150 cashback or a Samsonite luggage bag. No minimum spend is required for the SingSaver gift, though a minimum spend of S$1,000 is required for the HSBC gift. 

HSBC Revolution sign-up offer

Apply Here

New-to-bank customers who apply for a HSBC Revolution Card till 2 July 2023 will receive S$30 cash from SingSaver upon submitting their approval email to

❓ New-to-bank

New-to-bank customers are defined as those who:

  • Do not hold any principal HSBC credit card
  • Have not cancelled a principal HBSC credit card within 12 months prior to application

On top of this, they will receive a choice of the following gifts when they spend at least S$1,000 in qualifying transactions during the qualifying spend period:

  • Samsonite Prestige 69cm Spinner Exp with built-in scale, worth S$670, or
  • S$150 cashback

While HSBC used to offer S$200 cashback with a minimum spend of S$500, this was discontinued in early April, sadly. The above is the default offer until at least 31 August 2023. 

The qualifying spend period is as follows (do note the first column is “approval” date, not application date):

Card Approval Date Qualifying Spend Period
1-31 May 2023 By 30 June 2023
1-30 June 2023 By 31 July 2023

Application steps

  1. Apply via the links in this article
  2. Complete the SingSaver Rewards Redemption Form that is sent to your email, within the first 14 days of application. Ensure that the name, mobile number and email address submitted to SingSaver are the same as that used in the credit card application
  3. Provide HSBC with your consent to receive marketing and promotional materials, and do not revoke it before the gift is fulfilled
  4. Once you receive a card approval email from HSBC, forward it to within one month of the approval date, and no later than 30 June 2023

I want to highlight step (3) in particular, because this is a condition unique to HSBC. You must provide marketing consent in order to have either gift fulfilled (SingSaver’s or HSBC’s).

Review: HSBC Revolution Card


Apply here

From now till 2 July 2023, applicants for a HSBC Revolution Card will enjoy a bonus S$30 cash from SingSaver, on top of the usual sign-up gifts of S$150 cash or a Samsonite luggage.

I consider this an essential card to have because of its 4 mpd on a wide range of day-to-day spending; the free Entertainer and absence of an annual fee are just the cherry on top.

Hi I tried signing up for this via your link but wasn’t given any option during the signup process to select the $150 or luggage gift from HSBC – I contacted HSBC as well after submitting the application and they are saying that “Unfortunately we do not have any singsaver promotion going on at the moment” and that “if you are applying through singsaver you are only entitled for singsaver welcome gift”. Does this mean that the only sign up gift we’ll receive is $30 and not the $150 or luggage?


Tried registering but the application page keeps looping back to card selection page with “Advance” selected instead of “Revolution”. Seems the web is buggy in favour of Advance Cashback Card.


Signed up and no respond from SingSaver
