Pros and Cons

Pros
  • High rewards rate

  • No annual fee

  • 0% Intro APR for 15 months on balance transfers, then a 14.74%, 18.74% or 24.74% variable APR.

  • No foreign transaction fee

Cons
  • No intro APR period on Purchases

  • Potentially complicated redemption

The HSBC Cash Rewards Mastercard® credit card earns an unlimited 1.5% cash back on all purchases, which is competitive in its category. But the card's distinguishing feature is the 10% anniversary bonus it offers each year, which boosts your overall rewards rate to an effective 1.65% on everything you buy.

That's better than what you'd earn with even some of the best flat-rate cash-back credit cards available.

Also, the annual fee is $0.

Unlike some of its competitors, though, this card is not a good choice for financing a large initial purchase, nor is it the best deal for balance transfers. And while the card offers multiple redemption options beyond just cash, its strings-attached quirks might give you some pause.
