HSBC Caltex or Starbucks?

Tuesday, January 18, 2011 jeffrey siy 0 Comments


With every P2,000 minimum worth of purchase you use your HSBC credit card on, you have the option of availing 1 of 2 rewards - P100 at Caltex or a tall drink at Starbucks. Well actually 3 rewards to select from if you count the ongoing HSBC CPK Rewards Promo which will end this February. For Caltex Rebate and Starbucks Rewards however, it's going to end indefinitely. Seems like HSBC is trying to catch up with Citibank.

Your Starbucks® treat, from HSBC

Promo Requirement:
  • All primary and supplementary HSBC cardholders issued by HSBC Philippines
  • Single-receipt transaction of at least P2,000 presented within thirty (30) calendar days from the purchase or transaction date

  2. For the charge slip to be valid:
    • Name and card number on the charge slip must be the same as he name and card number on the HSBC
    • Transaction date of the charge slip must be within the promo period and should be resented within thirty (30) calendar days from the purchase or transaction date

The remaining charge slips will no longer be honored for purpose of Instant Rewards feature. The cost of the item redeemed through the use of the remaining charge slips shall be charged to the Cardholder’s Card.

TIP: If your bill is big, try to ask the merchant to split up the bill into smaller transaction sizes.. Although the mechanics indicate that this isn't allowed, most merchants still do it if you ask nicely.
