While it isn’t quite as popular as the credit cards from American Express or the Big 5 banks, HSBC’s World Elite MasterCard is one of the more underrated credit cards in Canada, and definitely deserves a closer look.

The HSBC World Elite routinely offers very strong signup bonuses, and right now it’s offering a total of 60,000 HSBC Rewards points with the first-year annual fee waived (for non-Quebec residents) or 90,000 HSBC Rewards points for no minimum spend (for Quebecers).

You’ll also earn 6 points per dollar spent on travel and 3 points per dollar spent on everything else, which is a very competitive earning rate. And those points can be redeemed very easily at a rate of 200 points = $1 for travel purchases, or transferred to British Airways Avios, Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer, or Cathay Pacific Asia Miles.

There’s quite a lot to discuss about the HSBC World Elite and HSBC’s rather niche rewards program, and in this video we’ll go over everything you need to know.
