£10 Cashback for using Android Pay with HSBC. Not sure if this is account specific but worth checking if you're with HSBC. Early bird or reluctant riser? Either way, here's something to get your da…

can you download Android pay on a iPhone?


​No


​Ha
Added my HSBC Credit card to android pay and used 3 times yesterday. I guess that would be enough for the £10 cashback?
Damn, I've just looked it up in my MSE emails ands spotted that. I should've acted quicker. Got to choose between Coop £150 +£4/month or FD £100 +5% monthly saver.

Totally unrelated, but did HSBCs £150+50 switching bonus disappear over the weekend? Was going to do that this week, but looks like all trace has vanished :(

Yes, ended 30th October

Has anyone ever been lucky enough to get it to work? I had two attempts at using it - Tesco and McDs, both times with issues. Far less hassle with the contactless bankcard.

Use it about 5 times a day. As long as the phone is flat against the card reader and the screen is awake then it works.

With HSBC mortgages you can switch anytime - and if your an advanced customer nearly all the products I've seen are zero charge for erc and overpayments. I hit 60% Ltv last week
Could anyone else please confirm this information ??
I am HSBC advance customer with two years fixed rate. If I switch my mortgage eve to HSBC, I will still need to pay ERC.

Read your current contract to see if you will pay ERC.
could anyone suggest me; I am moving my remortgage application to HSBC now. but in the document they are asking for witness. should i need to get witness for remortgage..if yes who can do this? Thanks
we are about to sell and buy. the solicitor we have picked refuses to deal with HSBC mortgages saying they impose unnecessary charges.

Question. whats the thoughts here on paying off mortgage or keeping the money investing it and letting the investment service the mortgage?
Depends on your mortgage rate vs the potential investment. Without any further information it's impossible to answer sensibly.
Hi, Thanks for reply. Yes I appreciate you need to being getting a better or equivalent return on the investment against any mortgage rate. But if so I'm more wondering about peoples views on doing it as opposed to just paying off the mortgage and being clear.

HSBC 10 Year Fixed Fee-Free Mortgage - 2.49% - Max 65% LTV

If you have 60% LTV or better and satisfy hsbc criteria then there is no better rate out than that I am aware of apart from their life time trackers of 1.74℅ (30+ years more or less depending on circumstances. 1.49% above base rate). Fee was £749. valuation was £190 I think. no exit fees, no early redemption fees, no over payment fees.
But hsbc can be a pain and pig headed to deal with. just needed 44% LTV but some idiot in hsbc underwriting dept, released my part exchange amount as builders incentive and refused to count the entire part exchange amount of £160,000 and only wanted to count my additional cash deposit for LTV calculations. Had to put a formal complaint in about the idiots in their underwriting department. Yes I called them idiots lacking basic maths competency in my official complaint. Had to also write to their social media teams to get this expedited and after enquiry they apologised to me and agreed that my calculations were correct entirely and their underwriting dept was wrong. Got 1.74% life time tracker and also apology and a small financial contribution as compensation for my troubles.
Mortgage was approved instantly at first meeting. initial meeting is usually a 90 months appointment at HSBC. they usually need a second 90 minute appointment after a week. but you can ask for a combined 3h appointment to do everything in one go. I want aware and had only booked 90 minutes appointment phone team booked only 90 minutes but managed to pester mortgage advisor to do it all in one day and after 3h 10 mins appointment mortgage was approved immediately. also got competitive home insurance 25% discount when done together. Same for term life insurance. Valuation appointment was done in under 3 hours. Valuation done in under 1 week. mortgage offer confirmed in a few more days and moving in a couple of weeks. I could have moved sooner but refused and asked for a week more as otherwise it would have been inconvenient for me. All done and dusted in under 1.5 months of seeing new home. Could have been sooner but delayed it by choice by one week.
LOOONNG story short, complain to HSBC management if HSBC underwriters are being a pain in the ****. Some Jokers at their underwriting dept need to be fired. I have already written to them about that. if more people do the same then some of them might actually get fired.
Am happy with my market leading rate and low fees and no other fees for early payment etc. Plus competitive home insurance and life insurance etc, don't forget the 25% discount when done together with mortgage. As always compare. In my case it was by far the cheapest option.
For part of my mortgage they allowed me to port my earlier rate of 1.24% life time tracker rate for my earlier mortgage without any additional fees for porting it.
Please note to avoid delays and referral to underwriting team, keep you mortgage duration lower than state retirement age. if longer then needs automatic referral to underwriting team causing further delays.
Initially underwriting team wanted additional £45,000 to be eligible for tracker life time mortgage due to them ignoring my part exchange amount from deposit calculations as they considered it a builder incentive! But after referring them in writing to their complaints department it got sorted with an apology and small compensation. I did later make an additional cash deposit but that was by choice and the complaint was to prove a point to their underwriting team who **** me off. My earlier life time tracker mortgage with HSBC was faultless and didn't encounter any idiots last time around. They can be picky but for those that qualify there can't be much better deals out there.
"LOOONNG story short" So pleased you didn't give us the LOOONNG version. oO


​That was the long version :) I was just recapping the long story at the end :D
andy1989
HSBC whilst offer the lowest rates are absolutely awful to deal with regarding mortgages. Slowest bank ever.

They are the cheapest for a reason.


​In the end you have to see what suits your interests best. For a little hassle lasting few hours, it's worth saving nearly 0.5 to 0.7% of a life time tracker mortgage that might last for beyond 39y. Savings really add up which is easily demonstrated using mortgage calculators for capital repayment mortgages.

HSBC are thorough vetting mortgage applications and went through expenses and income etc like a comb. Hence why they didn't need Govt bail outs unlike RBS et all.

Previously had access to RBS fixed staff rate mortgages but didn't accept that and instead got a life time tracker from HSBC. Best decision I ever made refusing staff RBS mortgage and going with HSBC.

Is it possible to only get a 10yr mortgage, therefore just pay 2.49℅ for the entire term?
You take out the 10 yr fixed rate over a 10 year 1 month term so you won't incur early repayment charges.
unlikely they will charge an early redemption for monthly overpayment (phone them to confirm, I did with N-wide) as it is usually perceived as a gradual reduction (which is preferable to the lender) rather than one large redemption.

Wont even accept me. But they can offer the normal current account with no switch bonus and 3% regular saver. Err... no.
I would like to switch to HSBC and get this but as an existing mortgage customer I can only do this by phone or in branch. Applying for any financial product using either of those methods means losing several hours of your life.

Who'd mortgage a house when you can just buy it?????

Not a bad rate if you have 35% equity and a big mortgage outstanding, but for me my tracker at 1.5% plus base is likely the only mortgage I.ll need..
It's all about risk and return, the banks only ever promote risk as a bad thing, thereby offering expensive products to cover the risk namely insurance and fixed rate mortgages.
If you can afford to overpay on a mortgage and you are not overstretched a base rate tracker will always be well below the medium-long term average interest rate.
(Ie far cheaper than paying fees and a high rate to fix)
Take out the longest possible mortgage period 30+years that will ensure the capital element of the repayment is low, hence if base rates go up you have plenty of leeway against earnings on the interest element. Don't get me wrong base rate trackers aren't for everyone, and you need a little financial nous about you to understand the true win win potential
Not quite win win if interest rates go up during the term
Agreed win/win is too positive a comment, but If interest rates go up, new fixes also go up well above a base rate tracker, so overall a base rate tracker will always be cheaper, no setup fees every couple of years for a start , yeah you may strike lucky with a low fix when rates rapidly rise, but the banks ain't stupid, it's all factored in to their current offerings and base rate ain't going nowhere for the time being..
The majority of trackers are unlimited payments too and can be paid off without yet more fees

Agreed. HSBC doing a 2yr 0.99% 65% LTV at the mo. 1499 fee but you'll make that back plus loads more in interest savings over the course of the 24 months compared to this 10 year. I'm hoping this will still be around when my current 1.99% deal runs out next July.
There remains a tipping point though, where it is worth paying a fee. Quick maths on your 0.99% with fee of 1499, says you must have a mortgage of greater than 120,000 to see the benefit of paying a fee. Anything less, and a fee free mortgage at current rates (2.5% ish) is better value.
For anything over 120,000 that's a good deal though.
Your maths must be different from my maths then. Currently paying 194 on average in interest each month on a 1.99% deal. So halving that to 0.99% means I'm saving 97 quid per month on interest x 24 months = 2328 overall - 1499 fee = profit?
​The proverbial "you" ie average Joe, not you as Franken.
I don't know the amount of your mortgage so can't do maths on yours, just the product which is a very good product as long as the mortgage amount is greater than 120,000 ish. Anything below 120,000 would be cheaper on a fee free mortgage.

Will have 108500 left on mortgage when my current deal runs out. Curerntly would be able to get 1.84% on 2 year no fee and plan on continuing to pay 700 a month no matter what.. Still works out cheaper imo but haven't worked out the finer details so you may be correct. A lot can and probably will change by next July when my current deal expires.

I'm unfortunately locked into a 5 year fix with 3 more years left, this was just before the rates became cheaper.
I personally wouldn't do a long term fixed deal anymore.
Lol I took a 10 year in 2008 at 5.7 so my heart bleeds for you :p

Have either of you looked into the price of breaking out of your current deal and taken into consideration how your provider now rates the value of your property, e.g. what sort of LTV deal could you now get? Worth a check.
Advice please! I always thought less interest rate is better but HSBC advised me other way as there is no fee involved. Will 1.74% fee-free deal be better than 0.99% with £1499 fee on 150K mortgage for 2 fixed years.

Investors invest based on yield with expected capital appreciation a close second.
A £1,000,000 London property with an annual rent of £80,000 would have cost a US investor $1,500,000 just before brexit with the pound touching $1.50. It would have been bringing in an 8% yield then but, with currency movement, that yield for the person that invested last month would now have dropped to 6.9%.
For todays investor, that £1,000,000 London property, still with an annual rent of £80,000, would cost a US investor $1,295,000 at todays rate and have a yield of 8% based on the current rent of $103,600.
In other words, the yield for todays foreign buyer is the exact same as last months foreign buyer, but with a lower expectation for capital appreciation.
A £1mln property currently yields maybe £30-35k rental income, nowhere near the £80k you suggest.
TBH, the interest of foreign buyers depends more on the long-term economic outlook for the UK and whether they think they are welcome in the UK if they want to live in the property. There's been stories of foreign buyers putting deals on hold because they think they may not be welcome...

damn.. i fixed at 2.79% in January 2016 and fixed in for 5 years... at the time it was a decent enough deal.
was that with HSBC? If so is it worth speaking to them to see if you can switch to this deal penalty free? Not sure if it would work but worth a try if you wanted this deal?


Nope with barclays. I'll speak to them and see if they switch me to a better deal which I doubt they'll do
is there a lot of market for rentals at 80000 per year?

What's the true % after factoring in the £1500 fee over 2 years??

If you borrow £100K it will be 1.74%
If you borrow £200K it will be 1.365%
If you borrow £300K it will be 1.24%
etc...


Not bad! Might apply then and also borrow some more for loft conversion !!
I've been given a couple of warnings about HSBC, they apparently use a different process for agreement in principle vs underwriting, so you can get the AIP but still be rejected after finding your dream home.

often these deals are much better for those with larger mortgages where the saving on the rate make it worth while. I recently went to a no fee Yorkshire building society rate of 1.59% with a similar 65%ltv which worked out much cheaper over the 2yrs than this. I think it's somewhere around 400-500k outstanding mortgage where it becomes cost effective to pay these fees upfront to benefit from the lower rate otherwise just go with a fee free rate if you can get one that's low enough.
YBS were really good for me from application to having the mortgage transfered include a name change on deeds due to changing my family name all got done within 3wks. Plus got to follow it online through there legal team.


​also went with Yorkshire recently and found them great, didn't have to pay any fees and they sorted all the paperwork etc. makes me wonder what the benefits of going to a mortgage advisor are??

I did the maths and for me over 2 years this was the cheapest mortgage available. There are obviously other things to take into consideration but if you're comfortable with a 2 year fix, I couldn't find anything better.

I'd go for it OP, this looks like the best for 90% (please check yourself, too). I have an HSBC mortgage and they are great. Just be sure you are a "vanilla" applicant-not self employed, no 2nd house etc, and you'll be ok

No idea if thats a great deal now but 2.5 years back when I bought my first home the best 90%er on the market was hsbc 4.15%. If this deal was around then, even taking into account the fee, Id have saved 3300 in interest (so 4800 overall) over the 2 years. Seems hot to me if u can stump up the fee although I haven't looked to see what else is around currently.
dont they just add the fee to the mortgage balance?

Mine was fee free but I think you can do both, either pay it up front or add to mortgage aye.

Indeed, funny how much vitriol there is in this country around terrorism and yet people will bank with a bank who will take money from known Mexican cartel members who have killed many times the number that died in Paris or London.
Hypocrisy as usual.

I don't trust ANY bank so I may as well go with the one offering the best deal.

Let's take a hypothetical choice between:

A more expensive loan with one of the 'so-called' socially responsible bank that costs an additional £200 in interest over the term; or

A cheap loan with HSBC and a £200 donation to charity

In the above scenario, I have no doubt in my mind that the second option is the one that's more socially responsible.

I think you could say that of all banks......the COOP included. But I agree with you. Time for a range of truly "ethical" banks I think.
is there such a bank?
No- that's why I suggested it. Islamic Bank of Britain are very oppressive to muslims who want a mortgage and their profit rates are some of the poorest. They are in this game for themselves. "Fair banking" just does not exist.

What a long-winded way of applying for an account,
Applied for an account online and received a letter a week later addressed to me but named wrongly stating that I was not successful in applying for an account,
Phoned up and was advised to apply again,
Applied again and then received a letter telling me that they couldn't confirm my address and to go to a branch with my driving licence or passport,
Went to branch who couldn't find any details of me applying for an account, it was late so they advised me to apply online again,
Applied for the third time and received a letter a week later stating that I had been successful with a form included asking me for my signature,
Signed the form and sent it back and received another form today asking for some security details for telephone banking,
I am now awaiting whatever they require next.
Contacted me about switch and had another form sent to me which I had to read before going ahead,
Form didn't arrive so another was sent and three arrived about a week later,
Read form and waited for phone call which came the day after, asked about why I hadn't received a debit card during conversation and it transpired that I didn't order one during application process?, but they ordered one and it was sent in about ten days.
Switch was due on Tuesday last week but it failed, I think they forgot as I didn't get a letter from my other bank confirming the switch.
Was phoned and told that switch will now take place next Monday as first switch failed, no reason why was given.
Received letter from other bank confirming switch will take place on Monday.
Hopefully it will be worth it as it will be over ten weeks since applying if the switch finally goes through on Monday.
Well switch went through okay, and £120 was added to my account within an hour. I'm pleasantly surprised!

I'm still saving for my deposit, but I'm also renting at the same time, but I'm not sure if I would like to live in the UK forever so I could help me with two questions:
1. Does getting a 5 year deal means a higher monthly repayment than say 10 year? What happens after 5 years for this one? Do I have to find another mortgage to pay HSBC?
2. What if I want to sell my property?
Cheers,

1. No, generally the 10 year deals have a slightly higher interest rate. Call it a 'premium' for peace of mind. After the 5 years have lapsed on this one you would go onto their standard variable rate if you didn't remortgage or pay the remainder off.

2. Most mortgages are portable, so as long as you buy another property you should be okay. Either way this should be explained in the key facts for the mortgage.

An interesting article that predicts interest rates are not going to rise until 2019, with possibly a cut this year: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/personalfinance/interest-rates/11032396/Interest-rates-predictions-When-will-the-Bank-Rate-rise.html

May be better with a short-term tracker and then fix in a couple years time. Barclays have a 2 yr offset tracker at 1.49% above base rate (1.99%) with a £999 fee and 75% LTV. Depending if you want to roll the dice ;)



Edited By: mikeyp on Feb 15, 2016 11:06
I just called HSBC who advised 1.99% rate is only available for existing HSBC mortgage customers. Best rate (for their current account holder) is 2.09%.

Also you'll be lucky getting on their website. I haven't been able to use it for 2 days

its a fair rate the number critical illness definitions covered on their policy is lower than available elsewhere being tied they can only offer their own product- best to shop around, if anyone wants a comparison drop me a pm
Coventry have a fee free 5 year fix at 3.65% at 90% loan to value
I am always concerned when I see mortgage products on here as I dont want anyone to be swayed into making a decision based on it getting a hot vote on this site. always do thorough research, preferably well in advance of making a decision to buy a house and compare many products and find the ones that fit your specific needs. a low rate is not all that matters and no one knows what the rate will be in 2 years when it ends.

as a first time buyer, the chances are you will be taking on very very large amounts of debt, so factor in future changes before making any decision. factor the costs in at the 5% mark, even though we all know that should be a long way off, if ever. but its your home and your money, so look at the medium and long term. a longer fix but with a higher rate might be a better idea. it might not, but it might.

I only say this as someone who bought their first home 4 years ago and the amount of information is bewildering and the actual non biased information was a bit thin on the ground, especially if you don't have a financial advisor.
Great deal if you can get it! My partner and I recently bought a house and we had to go through a broker. Most lenders wouldn't approve our salaries as I had under a year of work history (At the time I'd only graduated and started work 9 months ago) and my partner had changed jobs in the last year and was still in the probation period. We went for a 5yr fixed mortgage as we can comfortably afford it and also afford overpayments. This is a good deal, but bear in mind the economy will probably be very different in a couple of years!
My partner and myself earn over 40k each and we have 100k in equity in property and HSBC would only offer us 92k. We are early 30s and have never been unemployed. A joke of a company.
Property must not be more than £400k

As far as I can see the deal is 2.18% for an increased £999 booking fee which of course is now steep. A couple of considerations though here. Its actually for 63 months and is three months on from my initial post and after the US Fed has raised their rates. I have remained on the 1.99% tracker as I believe that rates will probably not rise for around six months here although I am not an expert and do not give anybody else advice. My considerations are that at the moment I can make a judgement now on rates, market advice etc when making my decision. In 63 months when this fixed rate has expired then the market may well be a whole lot different. Therefore for me it is about keeping my moment of choice open for as look as I can now.
and now up to 2.28% and booking fee increased
That was quick, reduced to 2.19% again.
Looks like the rate is back to 2.29% now

Do you really believe that where taxation is involved you can just change the price to suit?

That depends on whether the tax is on value, such as inheritance tax, or on the price, such as Stamp Duty.

Stamp duty is about the price you are paying for a property when you buy it. So, yes, you can choose to pay less if you like.

If you don't think that makes sense, compare it to VAT. You think when Tesco starts a price war with Sainsbury's and ends up selling a bar of chocolate that cost 29p to make for 12p, they're stiffing the tax man? No, because VAT is a tax on the sale price of something.

For years and years until Stamp Duty was revised people refused to go over these arbitrary tax limits when offering on houses, because of the tax bill they would acrue. Were all of those offers fraudulent? We sellers fraudulent in accepting them? If a seller had two offers, and one was lower than the other, were they legally compelled to accept the higher offer? Ridiculous.

Now you're absolutely correct about inheritance tax avoidance. However the specific question that was being asked was well, well below any IHT threshold.

The only unanswered question would be over whether there was a CGT bill to pick up, and that would depend on some other things.

But Stamp Duty is not a tax on value.

The only time value enters Stamp Duty negotiations is if you are 'paying' in some additional way, and only part of the settlement is cash.

If it's a worthy listing of a deal, members of hotukdeals shouldn't vote cold because it may not apply to them ... That would entail for example; i only have a ps4 - so the new xbox one halo 5 game bought for £20 on release is cold because it's not a deal to me (for the younger members more so :) )
I know but that's how HUKD work these days :)

Oh and forgot to mention, the first paragraph in the enclosed letter states that 'We are offering you Terms that may differ from those advertised when you applied'. I'm assuming this relates to the £25 credit you were to receive when you successfully apply for the card, no longer any mention of it. (and APR is now 21.9%)
Worth noting that it says in the offer:
In the event of any conflict between these Offer Terms and the HSBC Bank Credit Card Terms and Conditions, these Offer Terms will apply.
Anyone else did this and still awaiting the £25 after a balance transfer? I applied online before the end of September deadline, but wonder if they would try to count the sending back of papers as the 'applying', which to me would be misselling the credit card. It does oes say within 60 days of the qualifying action, so probably have to give them another couple of weeks.

Anyone else received their credit agreement for this card?
Got mine today, 23 pages of legal speak, which I'm sure is of the utmost importance, but all it does is continually repeat itself. I've to return the signed credit agreement page, marked 'RETURN THIS COPY', you've guessed it, no page exists. And, admittedly its been a while since I last took out a credit card, but my credit card limit has the wording 'Your credit limit will be the amount determined by us from time to time and notified to you'!!
Great, does that mean its presently unlimited!, or the opposite when I go to purchase a high value item from a retailer, my card is declined! In for a penny in for a pound, I'll return it and see what happens. I only wanted it to purchase something 0% for 32 months, if its no good I've got the 14 days cooling off period.

Hi blorbed
ive received all my documents now ,done the balance transfer and set up all the internet and phone banking options.While i was on the phone i asked about the £25 and i was told that i only applied on the 6th of october ,which i didnt i applied on the 29th of september ,and i was also told that i had to hold a hsbc current account also to avail of this offer.So i came of the phone a bit annoyed ,but i wouldnt let it go ,so i just got off the phone with customer services and theyre refunding me £25 onto the credit card within the next 24 hours .i found the terms and conditions online for the £25 offer and i read them to them ,and nowhere does it state that you have to have an current account.
Hope this helps ,if not reply and i will try to help further. By the way , Thanks op

Finally get the card etc to find that they set my limit at just £500!
What a joke, if they'd told me that this is all they were going to offer I'd have told them not to bother.
Wow, either your credit file has maxed out on your credit worthiness or HSBC own credit criteria has almost shut the door on you. You must be a high risk to them. That amount sounds more like an overdraft limit.

What I don't understand is that I'm a First Direct customer and my mortgage is also with First Direct. As first direct is an HSBC subsidiary this should count in my favour.

No bankruptcies etc and, a pretty decent combined household income.

A Brief History of HSBC

HSBCHSBC was established in its current form in 1991, in London. The bank's origins lie mostly in Hong Kong and also, to a lesser extent, Shanghai, where the first branches were opened in 1865. Fast forward more than a century, with its purchase of the Midland Bank in 1992, HSBC gained a substantial market presence in the United Kingdom. The following year, as part of the conditions of takeover, and due to the looming uncertainty regarding the upcoming transfer of sovereignty of Hong Kong from the UK to China in 1997, HSBC moved its headquarters to the City of London. Over the next fifteen years, HSBC began to expand into new territories, especially in continental Europe.

Despite the bank's central role in the subprime scandal, HSBC weathered the financial crisis of 2008-2010 better than many other global banks. Indeed, the bank made profits large enough to enable it to buy several other smaller banks, who were struggling for their survival at that time.

In 2012, HSBC had a market capitalisation of £102.7 billion, which made it the London Stock Exchange's second largest company (after Royal Dutch Shell) and with over 1,100 branches across the country, they are one of the UK's most recognised High Street banks.

  1. Click "Register" on the HSBC homepage.
  2. Read the Introduction to Online Banking.
  3. Accept the terms and conditions.
  4. Verify your identity using your account number, sort code, date of birth and two numbers from your telephone banking security number.

HSBC.co.uk Online Banking Security and Access

Security is a big factor in online banking, the same applies for HSBC. The physical and Digital Secure Keys are part of HSBC's "two factor authentication process". It works by adding another level of security to online banking customers. The Digital Secure Key is convenient, protected and easy to use, it’s used to log on to your online and mobile banking.

Your ambition is possible

The physical Secure key, as the name suggests, is a physical alternative to the Digital secure key. It's a device, roughly about the same size as a credit card, meaning it should fit fairly easily in your purse or wallet. It's easy to use and requires you to switch it on, enter your PIN number and it will create a one-off six digit passcode that you can use in order to log in.
