For topping up certain amounts, HSBC will also throw in extra Hongbao (cash rewards). You will need to maintain the top-up amounts until 31st March 2024. Top-up amount means the increase in deposits by 10th February 2024 compared against the day-end balance on 31st January 2024. If your day-end balance on 31st January 2024 was S$50,000 and your day-end balance on 10th February 2024 is S$150,000, your top-up amount will be considered as S$100,000.

Take note that 4.6% p.a. is for the 1st month; 2nd month gets a lower interest rate

The 4.6% p.a. figure is made up of a few things and they all have different references:

InterestReference
Base interest of 0.05% p.a.N/A
Bonus interest of 3.55% p.a. from this promoJanuary 2024’s average daily balance
Hongbao31st January 2024’s day-end balance
Additional 1% p.a. interest from completing HSBC Everyday+ programmeCompared to the average daily balance of the month before

The bonus interest of 3.55% p.a. from this promo will apply to incremental funds, and both months will take January 2024’s average daily balance as the reference. So if your average daily balance in January s S$0 and you deposit additional S$100,000, you will get the 3.55% bonus interest on this S$100,000 for both February and March 2024.

However, the additional 1% p.a. interest from HSBC Everyday+ programme is on incremental funds compared to the previous month. For instance, if you have S$0 in your HSBC EGA account in January 2024 and topped up S$100,000 in February 2024, you will get this 1% p.a. interest for the month of February. Going into March 2024, this S$100,000 will no longer be considered fresh funds and hence not attract 1% p.a. interest.
