Money matters

HSBC credit card

No, really... it does!
But does it matter more in Malta than at home?

NO ADVERTISING - financial services adverts belong in our classifieds section. Get-rich-quick schemes belong in the trash.

HSBC credit card

Postby PeaCakes » Fri 23 Aug 2013 10:30 GMT

I have had an HSBC account for a few years. Mostly used for drawing cash when on holiday. We have Quick Cash cards.
When we come over permanently we would need a credit cards also.
We have a good credit record in UK but would we be eligible for a credit card if no regular income? Just some living funds in the account. I have a few years until our pensions are due to start.

They might well ask you to maintain a balance equiv to the credit limit

They might ? In our case they did , which is rediculous! I give them the money they can give me on a credit card interest free !

Of course we didn't care less as we have decent credit cards from other countries so we declined their offer -)))

Only in Malta ......
