October 22, 2005 13:59 - Review of HSBC Mastercard with Cash or Fly Rewards

I wrote an article a while back about whether one should get an airline credit card or a cash back credit card if one wants to get free airline tickets from reward programs. The main decision really centers on what is the price of the airline ticket. Most reward program requires 25,000 points or miles for a domestic flight. Hence, if your ticket cost exactly $250, using 25,000 points to exchange for a free airline ticket results in you effectively earning 1% rebate. If you fly coast to coast and your ticket cost $350, then using 25,000 miles effectively means you earn more than 1% rebate.

But what if your typical ticket only cost $150? Exchanging 25,000 miles does not makes sense. You will probably be better off with a cash rebate credit card and exchange 15,000 points for $150 (ie 1% rebate).

Now, HSBC has come up a hybrid reward credit card that allows you to use points for either a free airline ticket or cash rebates, the HSBC MasterCard® with Cash or Fly Rewards , which we are now offering at our site.
