The HSBC UK Rewards Credit Card also has 0% interest on purchases for 6 months from account opening and 0% interest for 6 months on balance transfers made within the first 60 days of account opening. A 2% fee (minimum £5) applies.

Cardholders get 1 point for every £5 spent on the card. There are also special offers provide an opportunity for cardholders to earn up to 10% back on reward points at specific providers.
