Eligible HSBC Credit Cards
We are currently offering cash back on four HSBC credit cards through the Frugal Flyer Rebates program.
HSBC World Elite Mastercard
The HSBC World Elite Mastercard earns HSBC Rewards points and offers cardholders benefits including an annual $100 travel enhancement credit and free Boingo Wifi membership.
Check out our HSBC World Elite review for more details about this card.
80,000 HSBC Rewards
The HSBC World Elite Mastercard offers a strong welcome bonus, a $100 travel enhancement credit, free Boingo WiFi membership, and no foreign transaction fees.
The $100 travel enhancement credit can be applied towards a range of ancillary travel expenses, such as seat selection or checked baggage fees. Cardholders also receive complimentary Boingo Wifi membership (which is a great way to access WestJet WiFi for free).
This card is one of the few in Canada that offers no foreign transaction fees, meaning that you will save 2.5% on all foreign currency transactions anywhere in the world. We highly recommend holding at least one credit card that has no foreign transaction fees to save yourself money when you are abroad.

HSBC Rewards Program
Three of the HSBC credit cards listed above accrue HSBC Rewards points for all purchases made on the cards. HSBC Rewards is a very flexible, easy to understand, and easy-to-redeem loyalty program which makes it even more attractive for prospective cardholders.
HSBC Rewards points can be cashed out effectively at a rate of 0.005 cents per point by applying them towards your existing travel purchases made on the card, such as Aeroplan flight award taxes or a Hotels.com booking. Points can also be effectively converted to cash by utilizing the refundable hotel trick.
HSBC’s credit card lineup offers some great value for individuals who are looking for easy-to-redeem rewards or a simple way to earn cash back. While the World Elite is their flagship card, each of the HSBC cards listed above presents value in a different way.
