HSBC offers quite a few options for debt consolidation. These may include credit card balance transfer and home equity line of credit. But before we can go ahead shedding more light on these options, it sounds better to learn under what circumstances you may want to use these.
The advantages of debt consolidation, as you already might know, include the following.
Note that some of the above benefits may nullify the others. For example, an extended term might help you reduce monthly payment, but can increase the total cost over the life of the loan. As a result, a debt consolidation loan may not be useful at all time or for everyone.
Typically, a debt consolidation loan refers to any type of loan that can help you consolidate your existing loans at a better rate and term. Lenders normally offer the following options.
HSBC offers two debt consolation options – one secured and the other unsecured.
If you own a home and have built significant equity, then you can apply for a home equity line of credit at HSBC Bank. A line of credit can be convenient and works like a credit card. The borrowers can draw as much as they need and replenish it with new fund to use it again.
A lower rate of interest, tax deductibility, and flexibility in accessing funds are some of the advantages with HSBC home equity loans for debt consolidation.

Using a credit card for balance transfer works excellently, if all you are looking for is a payment holiday for few months. HSBC offers at least three credit cards with 0% introductory APR on purchases and balance transfers – Advance Mastercard, Platinum Mastercard with Rewards, and Platinum Mastercard.
Depending on the card you have chosen or have qualified for, you may be offered 0% introductory APR on balance transfer for 6, 12, or 18 months. You can easily consolidate credit card debts or any other debts by transferring these to an HSBC credit card.
Please note that you can’t transfer more than your credit limit and there is a balance transfer fee applicable as well. For more information on how HSBC credit cards can help you consolidate your loans, you can call the customer service phone number 800.975.4722.
