Singapore HSBC Hero FINAL

Make Family Time More Fulfilling

Translating cash rebates into a precious reward: quality time with family.

In Singapore, the credit card category sees fierce competition, with local and international banks offering similar benefits focused on cash rebates and rewards. Communication is mechanical and calculating, using incentives and numbers-driven cash rebates to drive leads and acquisition.

HSBC needed to move away from competing on pure transactional rewards and connect with consumers by positioning the HSBC Visa Platinum Card with a distinctive reward that our target audience, families with young kids, was looking for.


Singaporeans’ top priority is family, but they don’t have enough quality time together. Ninety-two percent of Singaporeans cite family as their top priority, even over personal health, financial stability and career.

In day-to-day life, family time gets squeezed out. Singapore is known as “workaholics central”, with residents putting in the longest hours at work worldwide. Half of all Singaporeans cite long working hours as a key barrier to spending time together with family. Even when family members are physically together, they’re not really spending quality time together.


To address the issue, Wunderman Thompson Singapore tapped the smallest yet mightiest influencers: kids. This sparked heartfelt discussion and reflection with Singaporean parents, with an authentic social experiment film reminding parents to spend more quality time with their families despite their busy schedules.
