Whether it’s managing multiple bank accounts, making sure to pay your credit card bills on time, servicing various loans — these are all part and parcel of your day-to-day finances. And they all require time and effort. With all these and more vying for your attention, you’ll want to make sure that your money works hard for you and as efficiently as possible.

What if there was a better solution for you to help manage your finances so that you can continue to grow your savings, continue global transactions yet save on time and energy? The HSBC Everyday Global Account (EGA) is the multi-currency account for all your everyday needs, locally and globally. 

With EGA, you can:

  • Gain bonus interest and cashback with the Everyday+ rewards programme
  • Transact in multiple currencies
  • Transfer money locally and overseas fast and seamlessly

Let’s take a closer look at its key features: 


1. Bonus interest rate

What’s better than saving your hard-earned money? Getting paid bonus interest for it, of course! And the more you accumulate, the higher the interest you’ll get — and the more your savings will grow.

With the HSBC EGA’s Everyday+ rewards programme, you can earn bonus interest and cashback on your savings AND spendings.

HSBC EGA lets you earn bonus interest and cashback when you perform several actions. On top of that, all the cashback for different actions and for all tiers of customers are 1%.
