Good you are late as I feel that staff at HSBC are extremely constrained by HQ regulations. They have no leeway to make small decisions or exemptions (say wave the 5-day hold on a bank draft) unlike my current banker.

Signed up in Aug - got the referral bonus end of Dec, but haven't received the welcome bonus of $500 - Signed up under their newcomer program. If you've received the WB from HSBC, could you post your timeline, so we can estimate when the bonus can be expected to hit the account?

HSBC probably has the worst customer service - no response from my RM, in spite of multiple emails. TIA!
Information is wealth, but again, depends on what you're pursuing & what it's worth to you😎💡

The terms and conditions say you should see the $300 6 months after you meet the requirements ... of opening a chequing account and depositing $5,000 with HSBC. I completed that in mid November so I will look for the $300 to be deposited in mid May.

b. Fulfilment
(i) The Advance Welcome Offer will be paid into your Advance Chequing Account within six (6) months after
meeting the Advance Welcome Offer criteria set out in Section 2 (a).

I signed up during first week of Dec 2019, received the referral bonus within that month, and just received my welcome bonus exactly 2 months after the opening.
I still don't know how long I have to keep my minimum deposit of $10,000 there. If someone has moved their deposit to another bank within the first year pls share your experience.

STEP Bonus/Referral Oct 23rd 2019

Welcome bonus of $300 received on Feb 21st 2020 ~5 months in

Easy $500 but now looking at options to keep 5k there for 1year at the best rates, maybe a GIC to avoid clawback

So I called their Customer Service number and got confirmed by the rep that
(1) I'm safe to move my 10k somewhere else now that I've received my Welcome Bonus, without getting fined
(2) I can only close my account after 1 year of account opening
(3) as it's part of the Newcomer program, my banking fee is waved for the first year which means I can have $0 daily closing balance
