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

    HSBC Revolution Credit Card / HSBC Bank Singapore

    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

    HSBC Revolution Credit Card / HSBC Bank Singapore

    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

    HSBC Revolution Credit Card / HSBC Bank Singapore

    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

    HSBC Revolution Credit Card / HSBC Bank Singapore

    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.

    Even as the OCBC Plus! Visa is not a cashback card, thus there is no cap, or "maximum" cash back, you get to still earn rebates in the form of cash rebates and LinkPoints by shopping at NTUC. However do note that there is a minimum spend of $500 in places outside NTUC before the full range of rebates and LinkPoints can be unlocked.
