I was shocked to find this; haven't seen any communication from HSBC announcing this change, and couldn't find any info about this benefit reduction after extensive googling. Does anyone have a similar experience, or is it just me? If this was indeed sneaked in without any announcement/communication, I'd say it's pretty underhanded.... HSBC doesn't even mention it on the official product page of this card.
Agreed. Last year it was $50... paid even up to a full ride. This year, I'm getting 20% off. Only saved $8 of my $50 so far. I guess it's all the same if one rides Uber enough (i.e., if you get to the $50 it really doesn't matter). Only matters to those very infrequent riders who won't save $50 annually. Still, would've been nice to receive correspondence about the change.
