I’ve been using the HSBC Premier Credit Card and HSBC Elite Credit Card since a while back, which are great for booking travel (flights and hotels) and getting some points back.
Their points system is not the best, but the points are quite valuable when you use them on travel partners such as British Airways, Iberia, and Emirates.
Now, they added more partners to their program a total of 11 airlines and 2 hotels. I see that TAP and AirFrance/KLM can be very lucrative programs to transfer to, particularly when combined with their 2x and 3x multipliers.
Here you can read the full statement:
HSBC: New airlines. New hotel partners. New opportunities for travel
Experience more, do more, and see more on your next trip when you transfer your Points to any of our Rewards for Miles1 partners’ loyalty programs. We’ve expanded the program to include 11 airline and 2 hotel partners.
Transferring is easy – log onto Personal Internet Banking, go to the Rewards site and click on Rewards for Miles. Be sure to have your travel rewards program number available to transfer Points. Once Points have transferred, visit that partner’s website to book your trip.

1. Cardholders who wish to participate in the HSBC Rewards for Miles Program (“Rewards for Miles”) must first become a member of a participating travel rewards program, and obtain a travel rewards program number for each program to which they would like to redeem Points for travel rewards program miles. Only HSBC Premier World Mastercard® and HSBC Elite World Elite Mastercard Cardholders (‘Cardholders’) are eligible to participate in Rewards for Miles. Cardholders whose HSBC Elite credit card Accounts or HSBC Premier World credit card Accounts are valid and in good standing will be eligible to transfer Points to a participating travel rewards program account.
Timing for the redeemed Points to be converted to miles and post to the Cardholder travel rewards program account may vary by partner and may take up to 14 days. The conversion rate of HSBC Points may vary by travel rewards program. Points value when converted will be rounded to the nearest whole number. Once Points are transferred to a travel rewards program, they will be immediately deducted from your available HSBC Points balance.
Points cannot be canceled or transferred back to the HSBC Rewards Account or re-transferred to another participating travel rewards program account. Once HSBC Rewards points are successfully transferred to a travel rewards partner of your choice, HSBC will not be responsible for any disputes between your selected travel rewards partner and you.
