Tried search, didn't find much.
I have a mortgage in the US, and some other bills that need to be paid in US$.
I get my pay in HK$, direct deposit to my HSBC account. Asked my company if they would do a split deposit to HSBC and my US bank account, their answer was "would be difficult..." (aka Hongki for "no").
Although HSBC has "internet banking", my experience is it's like phone banking from 1980 without the phone -- apparently you're just generating printed documents in an office somewhere for a teller to make the transactions. To avoid any semblance of convenience, you still have to go to a branch to do all the things I've been able to do online with US banks for a decade -- transfers, opening accounts, currency exchange... OK, I'm exaggerating, but internet banking here is pretty lame.
I have the HSBC account, a US account (at B of A), and an ETrade bank account (as well as a trading account). Looking online at my B of A and ETrade "transfer" options, I can see HSBC, but in HSBC I can't see either of the other banks.
Any suggestions on the easiest/cheapest way to move money from HK to the US each month?
