If you are a resident of Canada other than the province of Quebec, you can receive 20,000 Points if you make eligible purchases in the aggregate amount of $2,000 or more within 180 days of opening your account. If you are a resident of Quebec, you can receive 25,000 Points if you keep your new account open for 180 days from opening.

The Points under this offer are in addition to the Points earned on the eligible purchases at the earn rate listed in the HSBC Plus Rewards Program Terms and Conditions.

Your account must be open and in good standing on the day the additional Points are credited.
