Friday, February 18, 2011 jeffrey siy 0 Comments

UPDATE: Effective August 9, 2011, HSBC is revising its promo mechanics to Buy one Take one. This means that you need to buy a ticket at full price in order for you to be eligible to avail another plane ticket through the HSBC promotion. For those of you who haven't converted your receipts to plane tickets, now is the time!

HSBC is taking up into the next level, or should I say taking it up into the sky with their latest credit card promo. Simply charge your HSBC credit card 5 times with a minimum P3,000 and get a P1,000 Cebu Pacific GC. Want to get an international flight instead? Then charge your HSBC credit card 5, 10, 15 times with a minimum P10,000 to get flights to various international destinations by Cathay Pacific.

Your next Boracay trip and more, Free* from HSBC.
Your ticket to the world, FREE* from HSBC.
