The HSBC Visa Platinum Select Credit Card comes full of reward miles in addition to a wide array of travel and lifestyle benefits.
Among the highlights of this credit card is the fact that it has no annual membership fee and that it features contactless payment and multiple payment options in addition to enhanced security via Chip and PIN technology.
There are a number of important main features with the HSBC Visa Platinum Select Credit Card.
One of those features is the HSBC UAE Credit Cards loyalty programme.
Air Miles are awarded to cardholders whenever they use the card, with 1 Air Mile being given for every AED4 that is spent.
The number of miles that can be earned is limited only by the credit limit on the credit card.
It is easy to redeem Air Miles via the mobile app or the website against a large number of different services, including flights, gift vouchers, hotels and much more.
There are no blackout dates on these rewards.
Miles can be earned faster when shopping with retailers that are partners in the Air Miles programme – these include the likes of Spinneys, Sharaf DG, Toy Store and Careem.
