How much credit limit will I be granted on my HSBC Revolution credit card?

I just committed to a new HSBC Revolution card prompted by the offer to earn 1 rewards point for every $1 spend on all transactions and am wondering how much credit limit I will be granted on the credit card?

    I think it is usually the other way around, where you have to state your preferred credit limit first which will then be subject to the Bank's review and approval. The amount which the Bank will grant you may be lower than the amount you have requested. You should note that for individuals with annual income between S$30,000 and S$120,000, your aggregate credit limit with HSBC for all unsecured facilities will be capped at four times your monthly income as indicated in the income documents that you submit. Please note that because your unsecured facilities include all of your unsecured credit card, personal line of credit and personal loan, the credit limits for your unsecured credit cards, personal lines of credit and personal loans will be aggregated for the purpose of computing your maximum aggregate credit limit.

Poor and upleasant hotline

I am a fresh graduate and just started my first job, I signed up for this card due to the onetime $150 cash back reward for $800 spend within the first two months. However for its main monthly rewards, it is nothing to be pleasant about and the hotline is very bad, I even had to hold more than 20 minutes during non-peak hour.

Essentially I use this card only when there is dining discounts

Funny enough, I signed up for this card a couple of years back in order to get a free Samsonite luggage after spending $5,000. I still use this card howbeit not as frequently as I used to previously. Essentially I use this card only when there's dining discounts or when I use it along with the free HSBC Entertainer App. The HSBC Entertainer App provides 1-for-1 deals.

Online expenditure and dining rebates are decent with this card

While online expenditure and dining rebates are decent with this card, the card has been ousted by other credit cards. Aside from maybe the discounted Golden Village movie tickets they offer which in my honest opinion is far better than any other bank's credit cards or rebates. This card does not really have much to write home about.

I don’t see a point using this card frequently unless there’s a specific HSBC promotion

The cash rebates for supermarket and dining have been outshined by other family oriented card. Presently, I don’t see a point to use this card frequently unless there’s a specific HSBC promotion with the retailer or airline. I use to hold this card but nothing fantastic and signed up due to bank promotions. Regretted it and hope my review will make others to think twice about the purschase.

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.

Earnings of 1.3 KrisFlyer miles for every S$1 spent locally

This card offers a few thrills if you are one for accumulating miles as you can earn 1.3 KrisFlyer miles for every S$1 equivalent in foreign currency spent overseas on eligible purchases up to S$3,800 each month. On such purchases above S$3,800 each month, you can earn 2 KrisFlyer miles. Furthermore the card allows earnings of 1.3 KrisFlyer miles for every S$1 spent locally in Singapore dollars on eligible purchases up to S$3,800 each month. On such purchases above S$3,800 each month, earnings are 1.4 KrisFlyer miles. Highly recommended for those who seek to accumulate miles.

American Express Personal Card membership rewards points do not expire

First of all, unlike other loyalty programmes, the American Express Personal Card membership rewards points do not expire. Furthermore, with no restriction on the number of points you can stand to accumulate, you just need to choose the reward you want and you'll have time to get it, pretty much the skies can be your limit as you can use the points the way you want from redeeming shopping, travel and entertainment rewards to offsetting purchases made on your Card.

Close to 6.5% rebates on dining

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.

Poor Customer Service

I am quite very disappointed with this card as I have never received the vouchers for all the points I have accumulated so far. I have on several occasions made complaints via the phone and even in person, but all to no avail. I would not recommend this card to anyone for this reason, i have to say unfortunately.
