It’s a great time to refer friends to HSBC. You can receive a $100 deposit for each referral, after someone you refer opens a qualifying HSBC Premier, Advance, or Choice Checking account in a branch or over the phone. Your earnings are limited to $2,000 per calendar year. To refer a friend, you must be an HSBC Premier, Advance, or Choice Checking customer:
- Log-on to Personal Internet Banking to view your Share the Experience referral page and personalized referral code.
- After you log-on to Personal Internet Banking, share your personalized referral code with friends by either:
- providing them with your personalized referral code
- printing the referral form, which contains your personalized code
- When your friend opens their new qualifying Premier, Advance, or Choice Checking account during the offer period, they simply provide the banker with your personalized referral code at account opening. New account must be opened online or by phone to receive referral bonus.
- Your referral bonus will be deposited to your qualifying HSBC Premier, Advance, or Choice Checking account within 8 weeks of your friend’s account opening.
Share Your Referrals
If you have a HSBC account already, you can follow the steps above and you can share your own referral links in the comments. Just please retweet this tweet or share this Facebook post so you can give something back. Also post a link to your shared tweet/post in your comment, or in the website field so I can see that you shared it. Thank you in advance.
We have seen this HSBC bonus in the past. If you can manage recurring direct deposits totaling at least $5,000, then you can go for the $500 bonus. Otherwise, the $250 bonus is probably the better option since it only requires a $10K balance instead of $75K. You must sign up through a referral to get these bonuses.
Just a warning that HSBC has not been very accommodating to say the least, when it comes to paying out the bonuses. Lot’s of people have had issues and it takes lots of back and forth to finally get your bonus sometimes. Even the account opening process sometimes takes a while.
