Typically, people view savings accounts as places to store their money, focusing on interest rates.
But what if we tell you that there’s an all-in-one account that gives you bonus interest on your savings and additional cashback for your transactions, be it GIRO bill payments and/or your card spend? With the HSBC Everyday+ Rewards Programme, you can enjoy up to S$800 in cashback and bonus interest each month.
|1% p.a. bonus interest on your incremental balances in your Everyday Global Account||S$300|
|1% cashback on all eligible spending with your HSBC credit card/Everyday Global Debit Card (with no minimum spend)||S$500 (or S$300 for Personal Banking)|
|1% cashback on all your eligible GIRO bill payments (with no minimum spend)|
Plus, new joiners to the HSBC Everyday+ Rewards earn a one-time bonus cash reward of S$300 (or S$150 for Personal Banking).

How To Apply
The HSBC Everyday Global Account is suitable for everyone, allowing you to travel with peace of mind and enjoy additional cashback across a wide category of spending.
You can apply for the HSBC Everyday Global Account via the HSBC Singapore app.
When you apply online, you can choose to apply for a Personal Banking Everyday Global Account or a Premier Everyday Global Account.
|Premier Everyday Global Account||Minimum Total Relationship Balance of S$200,000|
|Credit monthly salary of S$15,000 or more|
|Personal Banking Everyday Global Account||Minimum balance of S$2,000|
The perks of having a Premier banking status with HSBC include having a dedicated Premier Relationship Manager to manage your finances and global recognition of your Premier status at HSBC centres worldwide.
Transact & Withdraw in Foreign Currencies with No FX Fees
It’s worth mentioning that other than the bonus interest and cashback with HSBC Everyday+, HSBC Everyday Global Account also offers competitive FX rates.
With the HSBC Everyday Global Account, you can make transfers or bill payments in ten different foreign currencies with S$0 FX fees.
|Singapore Dollar (SGD)|
|Chinese Yuan (RMB)|
|US Dollar (USD)|
|Australian Dollar (AUD)|
|Canadian Dollar (CAD)|
|Hong Kong Dollar (HKD)|
|New Zealand Dollar (NZD)|
|Great Britain Pound (GBP)|
|European Euro (EUR)|
|Japanese Yen (JPY)|
|Swiss Franc (CHF)|
Do note that if you are spending using the HSBC Global Everyday Debit Card, you will enjoy S$0 FX fees on nine foreign currencies as RMB is not a transactable currency via the debit card.
The debit card, which is extended for free to HSBC Everyday Global Account holders, gives cardholders access to millions of touchpoints worldwide, allowing you to travel with peace of mind. This account is especially convenient given that Singapore is surrounded by nearby countries with different currencies.
(Do note that while the magnetic strip of your credit card is not activated for overseas use, you can still make transactions with your debit card using other modes of payment, such as online or chip-enabled transactions. You will need to enable your HSBC Everyday Global Debit Card for overseas magnetic strip usage.)
