DESCRIPTIONS:

If credit is any indication of how the economy is doing, then the Philippine economy must be faring out well. Approximately 7.7% of Filipinos – or about 7.4 million – own credit cards, and one of the major providers of the so called plastic money in the Philippines is HSBC.

HSBC is one of the world’s highly respected brands when it comes to banking and financial services. This data is based on Global Banking 500, a review of the top financial services brands in the world.

“We welcome the Brand Finance Report’s Findings that HSBC is the only AAA+ ranked brand in financial services and is the most valuable financial services brand in the world. In these difficult times, values are more important than ever to customers and they want a bank that they can trust. At HSBC, we believe that by recognizing and understanding our customers’ values and priorities in life, we can better serve them,” says HSBC Philippines’ Senior Vice President and Head of Marketing, Christopher Rourke.

Different HSBC cards for different needs

HSBC currently offers four general types of credit cards and each one offers perks and advantages for varying requirements of different users.

For instance, specialty cards like the Red MasterCard is specially tailored for women who love to shop and dine in exclusive establishments in the country and around the world. Meanwhile, the Mabuhay Miles Visa and the HSBC Mabuhay Miles Platinum Visa offer perks and rewards to travelers who like to fly with Philippine Airlines.

While each type of card offers its own set of special perks, all of them share the same general benefits that HSBC offers to all its cardholders:

  • Global acceptance. HSBC is a respected MasterCard issuer, and because it is recognized globally, you are provided with 24/7 customer support anywhere you are. You can also use your card in virtually any establishment abroad.
  • Low interest rates. HSBC credit cards have competitive interest rates and other perks like merchandise and travel rewards, attainable cash back, and value-added benefits.

Simply register online so you can have immediate access to information that matters to you, along with other helpful services and features. Once you are a member, you can view your available credit and outstanding balance, your recent transactions, and account activity.
