With a low sign up bonus in addition to an annual fee, I wouldn’t go out of my way to apply for this card. I do however, applaud HSBC for coming out with a new credit card design that we haven’t yet seen in Canada.

If you’re interested in a card that you can find in increasingly dimly lit restaurants, apply for the HSBC +Rewards credit card.

From a young age, Colin’s family travelled together from Japan to Thailand as well as take the occasional family road trip. This lead to an interest in global affairs and an international exchange to the United States where he made friends from all around the world. When walking down the airplane aisle to the back of the plane, he always dreamed of a day where he would be able to sit at the front in the premium seats. After stumbling upon the points and miles community, he is now proud to be seated among those he marvelled at as a child.
