Double your points. Double your fun.
VANCOUVER, July 30, 2019 /CNW/ - Enjoying dining and entertainment more often has just become easier with the new HSBC +Rewards Mastercard. Available now, the HSBC's +Rewards Mastercard is our only rewards credit card that will allow cardholders to save on interest with the bank's lowest interest rate of 11.9% on all purchases, cash advances and balance transfers. Plus cardholders will earn 2 points for every $1 in eligible purchases on dining and entertainment1 and 1 point for every $1 in all other eligible purchases2. Start earning on your purchases with a low annual fee of $25 for the primary cardholder ($10 per each additional card).3
"The new HSBC +Rewards Mastercard is designed for customers who want to experience all that life has to offer," said Barry Gollom, Senior Vice President, Products and Propositions, Retail Banking and Wealth Management at HSBC. "With HSBC +Rewards, cardholders will get exactly what they want: more points from their favourite dining and entertainment experiences plus the convenience of a low interest rate."
Additional benefits of the HSBC +Rewards Mastercard include:
- Price Protection Service4: If you find a lower price within 60 days of your purchase the difference will be refunded
- Purchase Assurance5 – 90-day coverage in the event of loss, damage, or theft

This isn't your parents' credit card
The HSBC +Rewards card makes it easy to redeem points, large or small, online or over the phone for a wide range of reward options. Additionally, you can travel on your own terms. Simply book the flights that work for you using your HSBC +Rewards card and then redeem points within 60 days for a statement credit.
With all the unexpected benefits that the card has to offer, HSBC has also added something completely unexpected to the card's physical design. Under black light, a fluorescent feature reveals itself, making the card - with its rewards - truly unique.
"We understand how our customers spend. We know that they are financially savvy and are looking for that extra "plus"," added Mr. Gollom. "The HSBC +Rewards Mastercard is it. A low interest rate plus double rewards on dining and entertainment?! That's the extra "plus" people are looking for."
