[HSBC] HSBC 2.74% 5 Yr Fixed Mortgage + $2,000 Cashback (High Ratio Mortgage Only!)

Deal Link:
Retailer:
HSBC
More offers from HSBC
Saw this while browsing FB: HSBC 2.89% 2.74% 5 Yr Fixed Mortgage + $2,000 Cashback (High Ratio Mortgage Only!)

The $2,000 cash back is for mortgages >$500k
It's $1,000 cash back for mortgages $250k-$500k

Seems like a crazy hot deal to me, but only applies to high ratio mortgages (sadly doesn't apply to me :( )

Taken from HSBC thread on SD:
HSBC, Europe's biggest bank, paid a $1.9 billion fine in 2012 to avoid prosecution for allowing at least $881 million in proceeds from the sale of illegal drugs. In addition to facilitating money laundering by drug cartels, evidence was found of HSBC moving money for Saudi banks tied to terrorist groups. Even though federal investigators found evidence "that senior bank officials were complicit in the illegal activity," no HSBC executives faced charges for their actions. The Wall Street Journal revealed in 2016 that U.S. Justice Department officials, led by President Obama's former Attorney General Eric Holder, overruled their prosecutors' recommendation to pursue criminal charges against HSBC in 2012.

This may not matter for many @ SD, but if you're interested, Netflix's documentary "Dirty Money" Season 1 Episode 4 is an eye opener, with the following synopsis: A trail of suspicious transactions led to startling revelations about banking giant HSBC and its ties to Mexico's deadliest drug cartels

$100 and 2% may be a deal for some, but it's only prudent to know the history of an institution your dealing with.

funny how no one was arrested or even prosecuted. makes you think twice why they are prosecuting Huawei executive in Canada for a much smaller (comparatively) alleged crime.

You do realize it's at the behest of the US, but Canada's extradition treaty with the United States left it with no choice but to detain her.

And so the hypocrisy is worse since the Usa let the banks get away with so much.

Our broker told me 'high ratio' means under 20% down payment/CMHC insured.

Is this true?

I have to ask but why does it mattes the history of an institution when you are trying to get a cheap mortgage and not be indebted for the next 25yrs? Are other banks making billions every quarter any better?

Is say RBC a better place to go? Oh wait, they were involved with helping tax evaders shuffle money offshore as to not pay "their fair share" as exposed in the Panama papers.

What about Scotiabank? They seem friendly with their "You are richer then you think" commercials. Oh wait, they had to put their gold trading unit for sale after its own money laundering scandal back in 2017.

The lady at the TD bank always seems nice right? Oh wait, weren't their employees caught breaking the law and lying to customers to juice profits because they "feared" losing their jobs as exposed in 2017?

I can go on but I'll stop here.

Let's face it. Banks are probably a bane on society helping to enslave the world but so are many other large companies making money. Don't get me started on the politicians like buddy Eric Holder virtue signaling Democratic liberal values via Obama's Hope and Change nonsense while preventing HSBC 's prosecution.

Need a mortgage? Get the cheapest one you can get. Right now given the economy is starting to tank, get an open mortgage as the feds will most likely drop rates.

PAY OFF that mortgage as soon as you can so that the bank makes the least amount off you.

I have a fixed 5 yr mortgage with HSBC at 2.35% from the hotdeals section 2 yrs ago. Also milked them for free money for opening a chequing account, credit card, and trading account. Hell I even referred a RFD member that I didn't even know when he opened his account so both of us got some extra money. Grinning Face With Smiling Eyes

Point is, don't virtue signal that you shouldn't take a cheap(est?) mortgage just because HSBC were involved in some shady deals....this is RFD and we like to game the system to our advantage.

True, but as far as I'm concerned all banks are criminals and crooks
So, are many large corporations.
IBM supplied the Nazis with computers. Toyota and Mitsubishi supplied Japan's ww2 efforts too.
Too much of this dirty stuff to keep track of

Anyways it's a very good fixed rate

2.89% is a really good 5 years closed fix rate.

What's the minimum mortgage required to have acess to this rate?

And 500k mortgage for 2k cash back is great, but...thats alot of a mortgage.
