HSBC Cash Rewards Mastercard® Review


Top perks

1.5% cash back: You’ll get 1.5% cash back on all purchases, which you can redeem for several options. This is about average for cash back rewards cards with no annual fee. 

3% total cash back for the first year: In lieu of a true sign-up bonus, you’ll earn 3% cash back on all your purchases in the first 12 months. This sounds like a good deal, but you’ll only earn this higher rate on the first $10,000 of purchases you make (which is $833 per month). That’s a maximum of $150 on top of the 1.5% you’d earn anyway. You might be able to earn a better sign-up bonus with another card. More on that below. 

0% APR intro offer on purchases and balance transfers: You’ll get a full 12-month interest-free period to make any purchases and pay off any credit card debt you transfer. Heads up: In order to take advantage of the intro 0% APR balance transfer offer, you’ll need to complete the balance transfer within the first 60 days. 

Wide array of redemption options: In addition to simple cash-back redemptions, you can also redeem your rewards for travel, gift cards, charitable donations, or merchandise, although these rewards types may involve more steps and may be worth less.

Cell phone protection: If you break your cell phone or if someone steals it, you can qualify for reimbursement up to $600 through one of HSBC’s partner policy providers. A few credit card companies offer this perk, and it’s handy, given how expensive those tiny portable computers really are. 

No annual fee: This card packs in a lot of value, but it won’t cost you anything to keep it open — assuming you don’t have to pay any late fees, and you pay off your balance in full and on time, that is. 

No foreign transaction fees: Mastercard is widely accepted abroad, and if you take this card on your adventures, you won’t have to worry about paying foreign transaction fees.
