  1. Deposit £1,500
  2. Make at least five transactions using the current account debit card
  3. Open an HSBC Global Money account (a digital multi-currency account) via the app and order the Global Money debit card

Which? added: "You don't have to keep the £1,500 in the account, and there’s no minimum spend on the five transactions, but the following types of spending are excluded: gambling transactions, credit card or insurance payments, cash withdrawals and card-to-card payments."

If you fulfill all the criteria, the £125 will be paid into your Global Money account within 20 days.
