      "one of the few cards that gives points for insurance"
      0.5 4.0/5 "Great!"
      I was using a cashback card that gave me 1.5% cashback on my insurance premium until i discovered the HSBC Revolution card. 2 miles/dollar is definitely a better reward than 1.5% cashback!

      There's no competition when it comes to cashback on recurring telco bills. With the HSBC Visa Platinum card, I get 5% off every month just by spending $400 every month. It works out for me because since my combined starhub bill is already more than $400.

      The quarterly spend requirement is ridiculous. I missed my cashback so many times just because 1 out of 3 months I didn't spend as much. Other cards are easier to use, and even give more cashback.

      I've got a family of 5 and monthly insurance premiums eat into my savings quite a bit. I'm glad that the HSBC Advance card allows me to earn $35 cashback on insurance premiums every month. I made sure to become an Advance Banking customer to get an additional 1% cashback.

      I got the HSBC Advance card when they had a nice sign-up promotion, but aside from using it on my insurance premiums, I don't think it's a very useful card. There aren't many other perks a HSBC card gives, unlike other bank cards.

      Although the HSBC Advance card has a cashback cap, unlike the Amex or Stan Chart versions, I find that I can still comfortably spend within the limit and occasionally even get 2.5% cashback. I'll use a different cashback card for things like groceries or dining, and use the Advance card for purchases that usually don't earn cashback on other cards.
