I'VE had hsbc & orchard since 2005 everytime i called orchard they wanted to charge me $20 for $100CLI i don't know about anybody else but that's not right hsbc always gave me CLI no charge so i combined the 2. Gave my hsbc a nice CL and don't have to pay for increases.
Congrats! I have had very good luck combining HSBC cards and I was told just 3 weeks ago that I could not combine my Orchard MC and my HSBC MC... Then again, it might be because the MC was a Merchants Bank card.
*Note to self* Remember why and for how long you had to rebuild in the first place! One Day at a Time, One Day at a Time!
Trying to get some clarity regarding combining HSBC cards. Have a Orchard and a HSBC Platininum. When I called today I was told only same type of cards could be combined (eg. Orchard with Orchard). However, I have read several post where folks have posted they were able able to combine the different branded cards (eg. Orchard with HSBC). Just want to make sure this is true and if so, should I be wording my request differently.
When I called they told me I could combine HSBC & Orchard, but they could not guarantee that the CL's would combine, that it may end up being just the HSBC CL. I asked what made that different from just closing the Orchard, and was told, that close was close and combine was combine.
Did anyone that successfully combined hear this and then still get the CL's combined?
I had $800 on orchard and $1100 on hsbc they sent me a form to fill out took about 3 weeks to combined cards. Orchard closed hsbc CL $1900. When i called orchard lady tried to talk me into upgrading orchard but she said they still charged for CLI so i had form sent it went through
