Thanks Percy! Happy New Year to everyone.

So this is not an "extension" ? But a new promo ? The distinction is important because if it is an extension then logically if one had hit the ceiling of HK 6,000 for Mannings last time, one cannot benefit this time.

Also, is the "gain" the same as the one that just ended?

Thanks.

Many thanks as always, for the updates. For eligibility for overseas spending on HSBC, remember you said before that its the location that counts? (not the currency) Just discovered that all my Paypal spending (even with overseas merchants in US$ and GBP) is marked as HK on my HSBC statements. So presumably that means Paypal (at least for HK Paypal accounts) never counts as overseas spending as far as HSBC are concerned?

Will not count. Sorry.

Thanks Percysmith. Is it worth replacing my VS with the Premier MC?

Excellent for once the MC Premier is better than the Visa Signature!

It doesn't cost anything to have it if you're Premier and it opens the possibility to convert your RC to Avios or SQ miles so it's always worth to have it.

In terms of this promo, yes . Use it for overseas every quarter up to 15,000 HKD and the VS thereafter (for which we'd suggest up to 10,000 HKD a quarter so you can evenly cover the remainder of the 100,000 HKD VS bonus quota).

2% > 1.2% so yes.

Important to note a minimum of HKD 3000 per phase is required for this promotion.

CS isn't saying the conversion is definitely ending, just Li PK just being a PK as usual and leaving us in suspense.

My prediction Li PK is just being a PK is correct https://forum.hongkongcard.com/forum...w/26215?page=1 #9

This is interesting. Reviewing my "overseas" Paypal expenditure I find that it is not consistent. I have some that are marked as GB and some as HK in the statements. Similarly, Amazon can be all over the place (LU most recently for a GBP purchase). Can I be confident that if the country on my statement is not HK and the currency is not HKD then it counts as "overseas"?

Just the former is required.

This is for Rewards of your Choice 6x (extra 5x) BTW
For the overseas and online (extra) 5x you earn that simply for the transaction being online, even if the billing location is HK (and the currency is HKD or non-HKD)
