HSBC Premier Referral $150 Amazon Gift Card

Beautiful Life

Recently, a friend plans to relocate her family back to Taiwan for family and medical reasons.  In the process, she plans to sell her US houses and purchase a residence unit in Taiwan.  But she does not have Taiwan credit history.  She is our second friend we have recommended using HSBC overseas credit qualification to purchase overseas properties.  (We do not work at HSBC). We were glad to share our experience.  Last year, we were fortunate to be able to secure a small residence unit with mortgage offered by HSBC Taiwan, using Isa's US income, Taiwan citizenship and US FICO score in two months.

But, I just realized HSBC Premier offers $150 Amazon gift card for referral.  Yup, I missed it.  The pleasure of lending a helping hand overcomes the $150 gift card.

Unlike travel reward points, the gift is not tax-free.

1 To qualify for an HSBC Premier relationship, the referee needs to open an HSBC Premier checking account and maintain $100,000 in combined U.S. deposit and investment balances. A monthly maintenance fee of $50 will be incurred if minimum balance requirements are not maintained.

To receive a referral thank you gift, you must have a current HSBC Premier relationship in the United States, have provided your name and address with the program materials to your referee and not be an HSBC employee; the individual you refer must not currently hold, nor have held in the past 60 days, an HSBC personal account, must open and fully fund a Premier relationship by December 31, 2014, and have provided your name as referrer at account opening. Upon eligibility, you will be notified via mail with instructions for redeeming gift of choice. Eligibility requirements may apply for some gift choices, e.g. Rewards Points can only be granted if you are a current HSBC Premier World MasterCard® cardmember. This offer is not redeemable for cash and is non-transferable. Gift selection is subject to availability and may change. If the gift you choose is no longer available, HSBC may substitute a similar product of comparable value. Any gift not redeemed within 90 days from receipt of notification will be forfeited. The cost of the gift will be reported on IRS Form 1099.

What is a HSBC Premier Account?
Open a new HSBC Checking or IRA account with minimum $100,000

I found opening a qualifying IRA account is the simplest approach.  It has been an excellent HSBC experience, and convenient for our overseas banking needs.  Please read our experience with HSBC for more detail.
