    Looks as though HSBC are doing another unannounced 25% bonus when transferring to Avios.

    Just transferred 25200 HSBC Reward points for 10100 Avios and received an immediate 2525 extra Avios.
    These bonuses generally last a month, but suggest doing a test transfer first

    Cancelled my card so not of use to me but a great share, thank you.

    Just logged into my HSBC account and there is a banner at the top announcing 25% bonus to BA until 3 August.

    Having reread the OP, 25,200 HSBC to 10,100 Avios? Shouldn’t that be 25,200 / 2 = 12,600 (+ 3,150 bonus)?

    Or did you mean 20,200 to 10,100?

    Thanks for the heads up, might be time to convert some of my 750k of points!

    Is this instead of the usual 30% then?

    I did a small transfer with HSBC World Elite, no bonus received

    Are HSBC reward points different to WE points?

    Once you transferred them to Avios, the Avios won’t expire right?

    Used to be able to type in the name when specifying the BAEC number but no option to do that now? My maiden name on my bank AC doesn’t match my married name on BAEC. Has anyone had this recently and it’s gone through ok? Thanks.

    I made my transfer last night, but none of the points have arrived in my account. Should I be worried since everyone says it’s instant?

    Was it your first transfer? My first one took a while for the bonus to credit

    scandiflyer 9 posts

    Yes was my first one. But the base also hasn’t transferred.

    It takes a while for verification on the first transaction.

    Do they check the bank account and BAEC account match? My partner transferred from her HSBC account to my BAEC last week but nothing has arrived yet (base or bonus).

    Have a look in your HSBC Rewards account under ‘spend’ to see if your transaction has gone through and/or see if your balance has reduced. It seems that quite a lot of transactions last week cancelled immediately and you can see this on the Rewsrds statement. You can try again or call them to fix it.
