HSBC is offering a 25% bonus on the number of points earned on its HSBC Rewards credit cards. The bonus points promotion is running until the end of the year, and applies to all eligible purchases made between 1 November and 31 December 2015.
HSBC Rewards points may be converted to other travel programs, although your choice is determined by the card you hold.
For Platinum cardholdrs, HSBC rewards points may be converted to Velocity points on a 2:1 basis.
If you have a Premium card, then you will have the additional options of the Cathay Pacific Asia Miles and Singapore Airlines Krisflyer programs. The transfer rate is again 2 HSBC points for 1 airline mile.
One downside of the promotion is that the bonus points may not post to your account in time to make the current bonus offered by the Velocity program.
