Credit card eligibility checker

Find out if you're eligible for an HSBC credit card

Use our eligibility checker to find out if you're likely to be accepted for one of our credit cards, before you apply.

It's quick and easy and there's no impact on your credit score.

If you already hold a credit card with us, you can't apply for a 2nd card, so the eligibility checker won't work for you.

Why check my eligibility before applying?

Applying for a credit card can have a negative impact on your credit score if you’re declined. Our credit card eligibility checker shows you which cards you’re likely to be accepted for, and your estimated credit limit, without affecting your credit score. That’s it. Nice and simple.

What information will I need?

  • last 3 years of address history
  • income and salary information
  • any other spending commitments
  • Remember, if you already hold an HSBC credit card, the eligibility checker won't work for you. You can see a list of our cards here.
