    New HSBC debit card 2% cashback scheme from 1 July

    New HSBC debit card 2% cashback scheme from 1 July 24th Jun 17 at 10:39 AM
    I have received an email confirming thst from 1 July until 1 October HSBC are offering 2 per cent cashback on all purchases on visa debit cards to their current account customers up to a maximum cashback of 10 a month ( equating to 500 of monthly spending).

    Presumably an attempt to match the co op and TSB - but odd that it's only for 3 months!

    It's apparently a summer treat for customers.

    Came back to update - made a non-contactless purchase (terminal declined so had to enter the pin) & have had the 5p cashback added. So hopefully it's all spend that counts
    Smile and be happy, things can usually get worse!

    Rather than all customers it is being targeted at people who don't use their debit cards / accounts more or less dormant according to person I spoke to at HSBC (I have a Premier account but not used it for several years - nor the debit card - except for monthly so into reg saver.....not had the 2% cash back offer email though.)

    I spent about 300 at the weekend and nothing added yet. A mix of contactless and chip and pin. I wondered if I would be declined for contactless as these are more or less the first transactions I have made with it, but everything went through fine.

    I can report online, chip and pin, and contactless payments made on 1 July have today been credited with 2% cashback, each listed as a seperate transaction, and they seem to be rounding to nearest penny.

    I've now received my separate payments for purchases made at the weekend. The system works!

    I am starting to receive the 2% cashback on a variety of transactions, online, chip and pin and contactless.

    Good in a sense that you see it happening much prefer the TSB approach of crediting on a monthly basis.

    Does the cashback come per transaction?? Unfortunately my card is not contactless, so I shall be trying Apple pay whenever possible. Hope it works

    Yes the 2% cash back is paid transaction by transaction a couple of days after the transaction posts.

    My cash back is on ALL transactions - contactless, chip and pin and cardholder not present

    The one reference in the terms and conditions mentioning contactless seems to be wrong as all transactions for me anyway are returning cash back andother than one mention nothing else is said about contactless

    Anyone know if DVLA car tax purchase online earns cashback? (Otherwise is it still possible ot pay for car tax at the postoffice?) How about on line payments to utilities?

    Gambling transactions definitely don't work (as per the T&Cs), I say this because for the TSB contactless/Apple Pay cashback, they did pay the cashback through Apple Pay deposit using the skybet app (although I didn't actually read the T&Cs so may have allowed it).

    I've got a HSBC Advance account and haven't received an email. I wonder if this is customer specific.

    If there wasn't a monthly cashback limit I might try making a pension top-up by debit card!

    I didn't get an email but used the online chat at HSBC to check if I am eligible for this promotion and they said yes. I have never used my debit card before so used it for the first time two days ago, transaction shows on my account but no cashback.


    Is it obvious where the cashback is displayed? Does it take a long time to appear?

    Just received my cashback for road tax, seems to take 2 days to credit.

    Interesting to see what will and won't earn it, might try a deposit it's Ablrate to see if that works, probably not but no cost in trying.

    I got the email 24/06 headed, "Earn up to 30 on your card this summer".

    I hadn't paid it any attention... did those saying they did't get it actually miss it? I did.

    Think you'd get the cash back using it to fund Ratesetter, or the like?

    Tried it for Ratesetter, needed to test the rolling market for a theory, anyhow - so not wasted either way.
