Sounds like you may be an unfortunate victim of high-pressure selling.

HSBC Premier MC is NOT designed to typical customers like CSR, but instead its own HSBC Premier customers.

Its AF is free with the account. The AF you are quoted is the one without the account.

Actually in the opposite. HSBC Premier is better than Citi Prestige in general.

1. Image-wise, Citi does not have a specialized card for its top-tiered customers. But HSBC has. The brand image of Citi Prestige is way worse than HSBC Premier MC.

2. This is supposed to be a card without AF. But OP simply got an aggressive banker selling inappropriate product.

It is a corporate-wide security measure. In fact, I feel safer with this.
