    Just had a look, looks like they will be rolling them out now. Still waiting for mine.

    Not that it matters to me, I still use my credit card whenever possible for points.

    How can this be? Is it a Visa Electron card?

    They have it restricted. All online transactions are declined.

    What a joke... I've just indeed read on their website the following...

    "The following transactions, including but without limitation, are not applicable to the Card: recurring transactions, auto-pay, mail/fax/phone/online order and installment payments."

    Unless you go with some convoluted 'linked account' system, it still seems there is still no *true* VISA Debit card option in HK.

    HSBC IS WORST... Typical visit goes like this: Wait 30 minutes in line. Apply for ADVANCE service because I am tired of waiting. Get ADVANCE service . Go wait in ADVANCE line 30 minutes. Go to another office for MPF enquiry. Go to another office for insuarnce enquiry. Go to another office for resetting of my PIN on my ATM. Go to another office when I ask a question that is outside of the comprehension of the bank clerk who was helping me. I kid you not, this is a two hour trip that's common practice.

    I have dealt with Citibank and DBS for personal accounts and always find I get good service for them. However, a start up I'm involved in uses HSBC and I had to visit a HSBC a branch once. Truly awful experience!
