HSBC Visa Signature review

What's so good (or not so good) about it?

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a credit card that rewards you more every time you travel overseas? HSBC Visa Signature credit card does just that. Cardholders are also rewarded handsomely when they shop locally.

More Reward Points

Moreover, HSBC Visa Signature credit cardholders can also earn points when they shop in Malaysia. You can get 8x Reward Points when you swipe your card at Mid Valley Megamall and The Gardens Mall. Plus, you can collect 5x rewards points for every RM1 spent on groceries and other items at selected shopping malls which include Gurney Plaza, KSL City Mall, 1Borneo Hypermall and more. Wait, there's more! You will also earn 5X rewards points on room and dining at local hotels and flight puchases on selected airlines such as Malaysia Airlines, Singapore Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Emirates Airlines and Qatar Airways. For all the other spending, you will be rewarded with 1x Reward Points on each RM1 you spent.
