Local businesses can join HSBC’s offers programme
Businesses in Bermuda can join a global offers programme that entices holders of local and international HSBC debit and credit cards to spend more in local establishments.
The initiative is HSBC’s global “home&Away” programme. This provides card holders with offers on travel, shopping, dining, wellbeing, education and experiences from around the world.
The bank said that as Bermuda welcomes more visitors to the island “this programme can encourage them to spend more in local establishments. HSBC in Bermuda is now looking to develop local or ‘home’ offers (for businesses in Bermuda) and invite local businesses to join the HSBC home&Away programme”.
The HSBC Group has partnered with a global loyalty and rewards solutions provider, The Entertainer business, which facilitates discussions and onboards businesses into the programme globally.
Local business owners who wish to learn more about home&Away and potentially include an offer in the programme for local and international HSBC debit and credit card holders, should e-mail Gary Macauley, strategic partnership manager at firstname.lastname@example.org. The e-mail should include the name of the company, a short description of the business and advise that you are based in Bermuda.
The type of offer and length of time it is available is at each business’ discretion. In addition, businesses do not have to bank with HSBC to participate in the programme. However, limited spaces are available in each category and interested businesses are encouraged to contact The Entertainer business no later than November 23.
Cora McLaren, HSBC Bermuda’s head of wholesale banking, said: “It is our hope that by launching local (i.e. ‘home’) offers it will help stimulate Bermuda’s economy by encouraging more spending from locals and visitors in support of local businesses.”
Tanya Bule, head of wealth and personal banking and marketing, said: “I am delighted that we are able to leverage HSBC’s global reach to the benefit of our local community. Receiving discounts on purchases can go a long way during these challenging times. New offers continue to be added to the home&Away website and we invite customers to visit it regularly to see what may be of interest to them.”
All HSBC debit and credit card holders are automatically enrolled in home&Away. Customers can view available offers in three steps:
2. Select the country you’d like to view offers for
3. At the top of the page select the offer category you’d like to view (travel, dining, etc.)
