HSBC continues to roll out its ‘WOW on Weekend’ Singapore staycation deals, despite most international borders now being open for test-free and quarantine-free travel, though unfortunately that very freedom has driven up hotel costs at home, making these far from the deals they used to be.
This weekend the offer is back, with a discounted rates at The Shangri-La Valley Wing going live between 10th March and 12th March, for stay dates through to the end of June 2023.
If you are interested then you will want to be quick once the offer goes live, since the best rate is available only for the first 50 bookings.
There’s also a worldwide 20% discount on Agoda hotel bookings locked in this weekend, for stays completed by 31st July 2023.
These offers are open to all HSBC Singapore cardholders, but wherever possible, you should be using your HSBC Revolution credit card for these bookings, to earn 4 mpd on the first S$1,000 spend at hotels per calendar month.

With Singapore hotel rates back to pre-pandemic highs following border reopening, this does represent a good deal on most dates for the high-end Valley Wing ‘hotel within a hotel’ experience – a great one for the Champagne drinkers among you!
HSBC and Agoda are running a three-day flash sale for cardholders booking worldwide hotel stays between Friday 10th March and Sunday 12th March, for stays through to 31st July 2023.
HSBC cardholders will receive 20% off worldwide hotel bookings made through Agoda during this short weekend booking window, capped at S$200 discount per booking (i.e. on up to S$1,000 total booking value).
This replaces the usual year-round 7% discount (for worldwide hotels) or 16% discount (for Singapore hotels) at Agoda for HSBC cardholders.
The link above is where you’ll access the 20% discount flash sale this weekend (don’t confuse it with a one-time 20% discount for bookings made on 26th March, which was previously announced).
Although the discount is offered across all HSBC credit cards in Singapore, combining it with the Revolution’s 4 mpd rate for Agoda bookings makes the deal even sweeter, so this is the one to go for in our opinion.
Just make sure you’ll stick within the S$1,000 spend cap per calendar month in the bonus category, otherwise it drops to 0.4 mpd.
Your 20% discount applies to the room rate only (excluding taxes). Details of the promotion, including terms and conditions, are available here.
How it works
- Make your hotel booking via agoda.com/HSBCsg
- Stay Period: Now to 31st July 2023
- To benefit from 20% off, bookings must be made from 10th to 12th March 2023, otherwise a discount rate of 7% applies for non-Singapore hotels or 16% for Singapore hotels
- Book a ‘Promo Eligible’ hotel and rate (not all are included)
- Select your HSBC credit card at the payment stage
Here’s an example of how the HSBC Agoda staycation booking discount with a previous 15% discount looks.
This S$28 saving (15%) example is where you’ll see the discount reflect at the enhanced 20% level when booking between 12th August and 14th August, for stays from now until 31st July 2023.
Remember, not all hotels are included in the Agoda HSBC deal (‘Promo Eligible’ only), so the offer is only useful if your preferred property is participating.
Also, while 20% off stacked with up to 4 mpd is a very attractive deal, make sure you’re not paying over the odds for the miles (not too much anyway) and not losing out on benefits you would value more, that may not be included in an eligible Agoda package.
Staycations have definitely taken a back seat among our readers over the last year, given the reopening of international travel, but that’s not stopping HSBC turning out its WOW weekend sale again, though with just one local hotel included this time round.
If you are interested in the Shangri-La Valley Wing deal it’s worth staying up till midnight on Thursday to make your booking via the dedicated link (just as the clock strikes 00:00 on Friday), otherwise you run the risk of the cheapest 50 bookings inventory being exhausted.
The bank is also back with its 20% discount on Agoda hotel bookings made this weekend.
As always, the HSBC Revolution card is the one to use, whether it’s through Agoda or directly with the hotel, giving you 4 mpd for the spend (up to S$1,000 per calendar month in bonus categories).
