In the Philippines, the Christmas season begins on September. At this time, you start to hear jingles on the malls and see holiday decor on sale. You can also expect Christmas promos to begin as early as now, such as HSBC’s Project Santa! When you use your HSBC card to spend on necessities like gas, the groceries, or when you go shopping, you can present your charge slip at any SM Department Store Counter or Ayala Malls Concierge and receive gift certificates to partner establishments.
A single HSBC credit card receipt worth P2,000 and up gets you a P100 SM Gift Pass from SM Department Stores. Collect 5 charge slips worth at least P2,000 each and you can get P500-denominated Ayala Mall eGCs. Whatâ€™s more, you can get up to P2,500 SM Gift Passes or Ayala Mall eGCs when you make an HSBC Installment Plan (HiP) transaction with at least P2,500 monthly amortization.
The promo period will run until 20 November 2010, with redemptions honoured until 30 January 2011. SM Gift Passes from SM Department Stores can be enjoyed all year-round until December 31, 2011 while Ayala Mall eGCs are valid 1 year from redemption date.
