Hmm, a Debit card for use with a Savings Account. Be careful of Reg D

EDIT : You open a new "account" (a payment account) and then fund with transfers from your HSBC Direct Online Savings account. Interesting

I've officially seen it all. HSBC starts a deal floating around on the 9th or 10th saying (in fine print) you must have had a savings account opened not but 1 or 2 days earlier to avail yourself of the $50 bonus lol! Ultimately it's to entice people to open up a savings account now and hope they get in on the next round of $50 promotion which will probably be in 2011 if the Central Bank of England keeps pumping taxpayer monies into their welfare coffer. At that point you've had a meaningless savings account opened which will probably go into "dormant" status as this is not a bank that you add deposits to; you basically forget about it as this one night stand that cost you a lousy $100 to open. I'm actually offended at this London based bank thinking once again that the redcoats were born with a bigger pot to p*ss in than the "lazy and stupid Americans"! God save the Queen mumzy and Charlie's ears to boot.

I almost forgot what a PAIN it is to logon to HSBC's site...Grrr! Maybe they can add some digits to the customer ID? Don't forget that one password isn't enough, gotta have two!

What on earth are you talking about? The offer is aimed at existing HSBC Online Savings Account holders like me that never bothered to open the Online Payment Account. I don’t see anything sinister about the deal.

HSBC is a convenient B&M bank for me. There are branches everywhere in NYC. I’ve had the HSBC Online Savings account since it was introduced a couple of years ago. I use the account regularly along with my other HSBC accounts. I had no need for the Online Payment Account because I have a regular HSBC checking account.

I don’t know what you’re thinking but there’s nothing out of the ordinary about the offer.
