Didn't get 300 welcome bonus after 4 months of depositing 5K. Called several times and eventually got 300 and then next day got another 100 that says welcome bonus. Guess it was compensation for my troubles (already got the 100 referral bonus in month 1)

For those who got the HSBC World Elite Mastercard with this offer,

Has anyone tried to redeem their points against a booking on AirBNB? Do AirBNB charges show up as an eligible travel booking for redemption?

I have not tried with AirBNB on this card specifically, but every other card (Visa, MC, Amex) have coded it as travel. It may not work for the travel enhancement credit, but should be no problem for the travel points credit. I even had an obscure LCC post as travel for me on the HSBC card so I'd imagine a huge company like AirBNB would be no issue.

Have anyone tried to link their external account (i.e. Tangerine's Chequing account ) with HSBC?

Tangerine has made two small deposits (so I can confirm the deposit amount and link it with Tangerine) and since Monday but HSBC chequing account is still shown $0 or nothing... very strange..

Also, I deposit $5,000 cheque to HSBC's account since Saturday, it's end of Wednesday, money still sitting in my Tangerine's account... again... it's very strange...
Did you manage to link the two accounts? I got an email from Tangerine stating that HSBC returned the deposits back due to an issue with the account.

Why not the send ETFs? They’re free form HSBC. That’s how I move $$ from them to other banks

what format did you put it in when you attempt to link? I tried few times, finally third time it works.. the format should be 10XXX then bank no. then 9 digits account number. TBH i still haven't switched my payroll as I am kind afraid that there might be some kind of problem for the direct deposit with hsbc.

Yes, I have successfully redeemed points for travel credit on an airbnb purchase with that card.

Can you please explain how EFTs are free from HSBC? I called and they said that transfers to people count as wire transfers.

I opened the Advance account in Aug 2018, got the Welcome bonus in Oct 2018... When can I close my account now (*avoiding the clawback of welcome bonus)?

Oct 2019. You need to keep the account open for 12 months after receiving the welcome bonus.
