HSBC launched its second phase of enabling cash and cheque deposits into HSBC accounts and credit cards, now providing customers with 39 post offices to make their deposits. This move further expands HSBC’s network by 24 post offices and is initiated to provide customers an opportunity to bank with HSBC even in areas that do not have HSBC’s presence.
In addition to these, the 15 post offices already serving HSBC’s customers are Colombo GPO, Kotahena, Nugegoda, Dehiwala, Mount Lavinia, Moratuwa, Panadura, Kalutara, Galle, Gampaha, Negombo, Kurunegala, Kegalle and Kandy.
Cheques deposited before 3 pm will be available for withdrawal (or settlement of the credit card bill) as follows: for HSBC cheques by 6.30 pm on the second working day and any other cheque by 9 pm on the third bank working day. This tie-up with the Ministry of Posts also allows customers to use or apply for credit cards at the post office itself.
