    Yes I believe you can as it is an online transaction or a recurring bill. Cash backs are awarded to eligible purchase of which fees and charges including finance charges, late charges, interest charges, annual fees are considered eligible. Do note that in the case of HSBC's Balance Conversion Plan, only the total purchase amount will qualify as an Eligible Purchase in the month of purchase. The subsequent instalment amounts under the Balance Conversion Plan will not qualify as Eligible Purchases.

Too bad it is not an unlimited cashback card

Unfortunately, the HSBC advance card is not an unlimited cashback card as they have a cap on the cashback per month, even for advance banking clients. Furthermore, if you are not an advance banking client, you would not get subsequent card fee waiver if you do not get to spend at least $12,000 in a year.

I don't like their internet banking layout and i find it doesn't seem very friendly to me

I pretty much use this card only when I know that I will spend more than $2000 in a given month and these transaction does not earn more than 2.5% cash back in other card categories. I don't really fancy their internet banking layout as it doesn't seems very friendly to me. Therefore I always rely on the paper statement to make payment.

It’s my card of choice especially with the 1.5% cashback across all categories

My experience with their customer service is not clement furthermore not getting back to me on the queries I had highlighted but overall, it’s my card of choice especially with the 1.5% cashback across all categories, which allows me to buy discounted Golden Village Tickets and have access to HSBC 1 to 1 Dining deals. Until another credit card offers a greater than 1.5% cashback across all categories without a time frame, this is the card I am sticking to now.

This is a good cashback credit card for those who have high spending amount every month

I am a low spender hence it may not be easy for me to clock $500 monthly expenditure on credit cards but this is actually a good cashback card at 2.5%, especially where you spend above $2,000. Otherwise, other cards will be a better alternative to this for smaller purchases. This is a good cashback credit card for those who have high spending amount every month. My father uses it to pay for insurance premium as it gives cashback for insurance premium too.

When I signed up for this card I got $100 vouchers for it

I only just recently purchased this card. There are a lot of rebates features that come with the card, some I am still getting familiar with which I can use to offset my next purchases. When I signed up for this card I got $100 vouchers for it. However there are yet still a lot of promotions going on for this card.

Complimentary Night Stay a Success

Very impressed by the complimentary night stay I got after I made bookings for a five nights stay at a resort I spent my birthday at in Malaysia. Even more pleasing was the complimentary golf games at a high quality golf courses in Malaysia. As a matter of fact, I had as much as six complementary golf games.

This card gives me $80 cash rebates every month.

I fancy the OCBC 365 credit because it has cash rebate of $80, but only after you full fill their criteria. They require a minimum spending of $800 per month which in turn earns interest from different spending. This card suits me just fine being that I have broad spending habit and in the process it gives me $80 cash rebates every month. My only dislike is the rebate on the general spending which is 0.3%.

Earn up to 1% rebate on your purchase

If you target to spend on major event tickets and high price items with the plan to split by instalment then this card is for you. However I notice that if you have an existing OCBC saving account, it makes bill payments much more seamless. And aside from being able to split payment into monthly instalments interest free, you can earn up to 1% rebate on your purchase. Only few cards in the market that allow auto convert spending into interest free instalment and still be entitled to 0.5% or 1% cash rebate.

Great customer service officers

I have had this card for a long while. The good thing with the card is that AMEX have been waiving my annual fees which is probably why I still have the card. The pros with this card include – Great customer service officers that are friendly and will do their best to help you with prompt follow ups, direct credit of miles to your Krisflyer account, many small promos every few months with a fantastic sign up promo, no minimum spending and perfect for concert lovers as AMEX offers priority to provide tickets.

Spa privileges that come with card membership

I find it very pleasant and rewarding the Platinum Wellness offerings of the AMEX Express Platinum Credit Card as I get to rest and replenish after a hard week at work. I treat myself to spa privileges that come with my Card Membership with spa vouchers from Adeva Spa, Spa Rael and The Ultimate. I do this one’s a week and enjoy up to 40% off à la carte spa services at Adeva Spa, Spa Rael and The Ultimate. Simply relaxing and feels good to be pampered.
