HSBC TravelOne Card offering 20,000 miles sign-up bonus


Sign-up for a new HSBC TravelOne Card and get 20,000 bonus miles, with an additional gift for applicants via SingSaver.

HSBC has launched the HSBC TravelOne Card, its first entry-level miles card. Cardholders can look forward to 12 airline and hotel transfer partners (with more to come by the end of 2023), instant or <1 business day conversions with no admin fees, and four complimentary lounge visits. 

There’s also a 20,000 miles sign-up offer that’s good for both new and existing HSBC cardholders, with a minimum qualifying spend of just S$800. On top of this, SingSaver is offering an additional sign-up gift for new HSBC cardholders who apply via its website.

❓ New-to-bank

New-to-bank cardholders 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

SingSaver T&Cs

However, if you’re a new-to-bank cardholder, a better option might be to apply for a HSBC Revolution Card first to get:

  • S$150 cashback with S$1,000 min. spend (from HSBC)
  • S$30 cash

After that, you can apply for the TravelOne Card as an existing cardholder and still get the 20,000 bonus miles mentioned below. 

New-to-bank & existing

Both new-to-bank and existing HSBC cardholders who apply for a HSBC TravelOne Card from 11 May to 31 August 2023 will receive 20,000 bonus miles (in the form of 50,000 HSBC points) when they:

  • Pay the annual fee of S$194.40
  • Spend at least S$800 during the qualifying spending period
  • Opt-in for marketing communications during the sign-up process

The qualifying spending period is as follows:

Card Account Opening Date Qualifying Spend Period
11-31 May 2023 11 May to 30 Jun 2023
1-30 Jun 2023 1 Jun to 31 Jul 2023
1-31 Jul 2023 1 Jul to 31 Aug 2023
1-31 Aug 2023 1 Aug to 30 Sep 2023
1-15 Sep 2023 1 Sep to 31 Oct 2023

New-to-bank cardholders can think of the S$30 as a further subsidy of the annual fee, which reduces the cost per mile to 0.82 cents ([S$194.40-S$30]/20,000 miles)

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

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).

If I am not NTB, no reason to apply thru the links on the site?


The incentive is you get more content on this free website, Patsy

Can the sign up bonus points of 50,000 HSBC points from the HSBC TravelOne card be pooled with HSBC Revo points?


Unfortunately not.


Can pair with Amaze?


Am also curious about this, though I don’t see why not


If hsbc doesn’t give 10k miles for 2nd year renewal. It doesn’t make sense to even hold the card after sign up bonus. Just redeem 20k miles then abandon it as the earn rate is so slow. Only good is instant transfer and dragonpass.


For a “travel” card, it’s odd there aren’t any special earn rates for airfare / hotels. 1.2/2.4 mpd is nothing to write home about 🤷‍♂️


Currently using DBS Live Fresh card. Thinking of getting HSBC – in your opinion, is it better to start with Revolution or T1? Gonna use it to get US plane tix and pay for groceries etc. so don’t want to have too many cards


Does the annual fee of S$194.40 included in the S$800 qualifying spend?
