So I'm pretty firmly in gardening mode, but it occurred to me...what ever happened to HSBC?  To Santander?  What about Sabadell's US footprint, or IBERIABANK's?

 

So I check em out, and hey, they apparently still service US markets, they just don't...advertise.

 

Now, none of the offerings were compelling, but it begs the question:

 

What unadvertised or underadvertised cards are you keeping an eye on, or have app'd recently?  What other banking institutions are being quiet these days?  Any international ones we can crack into without special tricks?

 

 

This post brought to you by credit boredom, and a desire to do the odd thing.

Yeah, I glanced at that one, but giving them $100k to hold just so I could app a card is a non-starter for me.

 

I'd go Chase Private Client first.

 

 

premier status with HSBC interests us as we travel a lot where it has a footprint.

Santander is very busy in the US as Chrysler Financial. IBERIABANK as I understand is doing business here as BBVA. HSBC is still the parent company behind Household Financial, but didn't their former Orchard portfolio sell off to CrapOne at some point?

Yes, HSBC sold off most of (maybe all at the time?) their credit card portfolio to Capital One. I had a GM Flexible Earnings rewards card that was sold to Cap1. I don't think this was ever an Orchard product.

 

hsbc sold all its subprime and mid-prime portfolio, mostly to crap1, during the great recession but has been issuing cards in the US. its current products are decent; at least on par with card reward/benefit profiles one finds with BOA. I heard that while hsbc's portfolio declined in terms of number of accounts its current receivables is 3 times as high as it was 10 years ago.
