Here's our tutorial to help you use the $100 Annual Travel Enhancement Credit offered by the HSBC World Elite Mastercard.
$100 Annual Travel Enhancement Credit
With the HSBC World Elite® Mastercard®, you receive a $100 Annual Travel Enhancement Credit.
You must use this credit between the Card approval date and the annual renewal date (this credit is based on the anniversary date of your card account, not the calendar year). If you don’t use this credit during that timeframe, you will lose it.
Choose the expense to apply the travel credit
Once in the HSBC Rewards portal, select the“Travel Privilege Credit” option from the“Redeem Points Now” menu. Alternatively, you can click on this link to go to this page.
Then, all you have to do is check off the eligible expense(s) such as this Easyjet flight. Then indicate the amount you would like to use.
This can be useful if you have several small fees (such as baggage fees, seat selection or airport lounge admissions).
Then click on “Add to shopping cart.”
Then, once in your cart, you will have to confirm once by clicking on “Proceed to checkout”.
Then a second time by entering your email address and clicking on “Redeem”.
The travel credit will then appear directly on your credit card account within 48 hours.
The HSBC World Elite® Mastercard® has an annual fee of $149. Using this $100 Annual Travel Enhancement credit each year, you virtually lower your annual fee to $49. What’s unique about a credit card :
