If I already have a monthly GIRO arrangement with IRAS, is there any point signing up for a payment facility with my HSBC Visa Infinite Credit Card?

If I choose to pay by monthly instalments for the HSBC Income Tax Payment Programme, can I sign up for this payment facility if I do not have a GIRO arrangement with IRAS?

    No Name

    No, since you are already signed up for a GIRO arrangement with IRAS upon its approval, you will receive a GIRO Instalment Plan from IRAS. You can then fill in the application form online and submit your GIRO Instalment Plan to HSBC for processing. You will earn Rewards points for every dollar charged to your HSBC credit card from HSBC Visa Infinite Credit Card if you sign up.

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

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

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

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This card is overshadowed by its poor mile earn rate of 1.0 mpd for local spend and 2.0 mpd for overseas spend, that is superseded by non-fee cards such as the PrviMiles.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

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.

40,000 Membership Rewards points to refer a friends to the card

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.

When I apply via MyInfoget I get to use my card instantly

So it is really convenient that I can get and use my card instantly when I apply via MyInfo. And the cards instant digital card that can be used for mobile wallets, online and mobile app purchases. Now aside from the same day physical credit card issuance for online applications you also get S$50 cash rebate upon approval with no minimum spend required. However that is only for new OCBC Credit Card applications.

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%.

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.
