How do I access LoungeKey lounges as an HSBC Visa Infinite Credit Card holder?

I am all for seamless and luxurious travel with exclusive retail and dining benefits and these motivated my choice of the HSBC Visa Infinite Credit Card. Are there any particular protocols I must observe to gain access to LoungeKey lounges

    No Name

    No not exactly my friend, you just need to simply present your HSBC Visa Infinite Credit Card, boarding pass and mention LoungeKey at participating lounges to gain complimentary access. However when accessing the lounge on your own, LoungeKey will perform a pre-authorisation amount to validate your card. A pre-authorisation amount is a temporary hold of your credit balance and no funds will be charged to the card. The ‘Total number of users’ reflected on the card terminal should be one but when accessing the lounge with guests, guest charges will be USD 27 per guest including children and infants unless otherwise stated by the lounge. Do ensure the ‘Total number of users’ reflected on the card terminal is correct. For example, if the ‘Total number of users’ on the card terminal is 3, total of USD54 will be charged (i.e. for 2 guests with cardholder). Guest charges are subject to change at the lounge operator’s discretion. All the best friend!

    Looking to maximize on the number of priority pass visits and other privileges

    HSBC VISA Infinite Credit Card / HSBC Bank Singapore

    If you are like me an HSBC Premier client and also a frequent traveller that can maximize the number of priority pass visits, limo and meet-and-assist services as well as your supplementary cardholders too, then this is the card for you. The reduced general mile earn rate is worth the trade-off for the unlimited priority pass memberships, as well as the high number of limo and meet-and-assist services that you can use.

    A good miles-buying opportunity for 40,000 miles at S$488 for HSBC Premier Clients

    HSBC VISA Infinite Credit Card / HSBC Bank Singapore

    I find this card to be a good miles-buying opportunity for 40,000 miles at S$488 for HSBC Premier Clients. The unlimited priority pass for both the principal and supplementary cardholder(s) makes this card worth the fee alone but provided of course that there are supplementary cardholders to share the benefits with and that it will be heavily utilized.

    The meet-and-assist can be helpful at overly crowded airports without Fast-Track/ABTC/Diplomatic lines

    HSBC VISA Infinite Credit Card / HSBC Bank Singapore

    On my last overseas trip I discovered that the departure airport limo service offered by the card is a major plus point while the meet-and-assist can be helpful at overly crowded airports without Fast-Track/ABTC/Diplomatic lines. HSBC Premier Clients get to receive four of each benefit upon registration and an additional one of each service for every block of SGD 2,000 spent in a month, all up to 24 a year. Although the services can only be utilized by the principal cardholder only. This card is overshadowed by its poor mile earn rate of 1.0 mpd for local spend and 2.0 mpd for overseas spend, that is superseded by non-fee cards such as the PrviMiles.

    Purchase discounted Golden Village movie tickets at a rate that is far better than any other bank's credit cards or prevailing rebates

    HSBC VISA Infinite Credit Card / HSBC Bank Singapore

    To me the HSBC cards have only one good benefit in which they are able to purchase discounted Golden Village movie tickets at a rate that is far better than any other bank's credit cards or prevailing rebates. I find that this is the only plus point of this HSBC credit card and otherwise, this card is a hit and run for me and you can sign up for only its sign up gift and also for discounted Golden Village tickets.

    Close to 6.5% rebates on dining

    American Express CapitaCard / American Express International

    I have held this card for quite a long time and one thing I like about the card is the fact that it is used for CapitaLand malls and they are almost everywhere. So I enjoy dining taking advantage of the 10x rewards merchants to accumulate the points faster. Imagine getting close to 6.5% rebates on dining. Not to forget their sign up bonus of $60 rebates in vouchers when you spend $1,500. That's a 4% rebate excluding the points you will earn which will convert into vouchers too.

    You get 10X points when you shop at retails for babies and children's wear

    OCBC Titanium Rewards Credit Card / Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation

    I would recommend the card for use by people who frequently purchase clothing and electronics and also in particular from known on online merchants like AliExpress, Amazon, Lazada, Shopee and Taobao.You get 10X points when you shop at retails for babies and children's wear, clothes, bags and shoes, department stores, electronics and gadgets; which cover almost all retails. Also the OCBC Reward is a $10 rebate for 3600 points which I think is fare.

    American Express Platinum Card / American Express International

    I like the idea that I can receive 40,000 Membership Rewards points when I get to successfully refer any of my friends to the card. Even more so as my friends can also receive 40,000 Membership Rewards points upon spend of S$5,000 in the first 3 months of their Card Membership. I think that is pretty much a win-win situation.

    OCBC Frank Card offers young adults a great, no-fee way to earn cashback from social and online spend

    FRANK Credit Card / Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation

    OCBC Frank Card stands out for its low minimum spend requirement and annual fee waiver however, it’s not a great match for consumers seeking everyday cashback. Online spend on utilities, recurring bills, and school and hospital payments are all not eligible for rebate. Dining, groceries, and other categories are also not rewarded. Ultimately, OCBC Frank Card offers young adults a great, no-fee way to earn cashback from social and online spend. OCBC Frank Card is definitely worth consideration.

    Ease of use to accumulate on miles

    American Express Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Credit Card / American Express International

    The American Express Krisflyer Credit Card has an attractive sign up bonus and it is easy to use to accumulate on miles as no conversion into KF account is required, and monthly auto “sweeping” of miles help save in the conversion fee. I also have had good experiences with their customer care service as the call center service is absolutely awesome.

    Too bad it is not an unlimited cashback card

    HSBC Advance Credit Card / HSBC Bank Singapore

    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.
