Via MileCards.com, you can earn 50,000 Hawaiian Airlines miles when you sign-up for the Barclaycard Hawaiian Airlines card and spend $1,000 on purchases within the first 90 days of opening your account.
That’s enough for a round-trip coach award flight to Hawaii from North America. And this offer is better than the usual sign-up bonus of 35,000 Hawaiian Airlines miles.
We don’t earn a commission on this card, but we’ll always tell you about the best deals!
I’ll show you how to find it!
What’s the Deal?
You’ll earn 50,000 Hawaiian Airlines miles when you spend $1,000 on purchases within the first 90 days of opening your account.
You’ll also get:
- Free first checked bag (for the primary cardholder only, and only if you use your card and buy tickets from Hawaiian Airlines directly)
- One-time 50% discount on a companion ticket between Hawaii and North America
- Discounts on award tickets
- No foreign transaction fees
The $89 annual fee is NOT waived the 1st year.
What Can You Do With 50,000 Hawaiian Airlines Miles?
You can redeem 50,000 Hawaiian Airlines miles for:
- A round-trip coach award flight from North America to Hawaii
- Inter-island flights for 7,500 Hawaiian Airlines miles each way
- 75,000 Hilton points
Round-trip coach award flights from North America start at 40,000 Hawaiian Airlines miles.
You can also redeem Hawaiian Airlines miles for an award seat on partner airlines like JetBlue or Virgin America. But you’ll get the best deal when you use Hawaiian Airlines miles for flights on Hawaiian Airlines.
From Hawaii, you can also fly one-way in coach to Australia, New Zealand, or Asia (including China, Japan, and Korea) for 40,000 Hawaiian Airlines miles.
Remember, folks on the West Coast pay fewer miles to Hawaii with British Airways Avios points.
How to Find the Offer
It takes a few steps to find the card offer. Here’s how!
You’ll find the offer on the last payment screen when you make a test booking.
To begin, go the Hawaiian Airlines website. Under the “Flights” tab, enter any route. And any dates you want. Click “Search Flights.”
On the next page, enter your details and click “Continue” until you reach the final payment screen.
Once you get there, select “Credit/Debit Card” for the payment method. Don’t worry, you will NOT be charged.
Then, you should see the offer on the same page.
Should You Apply for This Deal?
This offer is more than the usual sign-up bonus of 35,000 Hawaiian Airlines miles. And it’s the highest I’ve seen for this card.
That said, most folks can do better with other cards, especially if you’re new to miles and points. And I recommend folks new to our hobby apply for Chase cards first because of their tighter application rules.
But it could be worth it if you want to visit Hawaii. Or if you collect Hawaiian Airlines miles.
With Barclaycard, it typically takes a few days to receive the sign-up bonus after you complete the minimum spending. But you may have to wait until after your statement closes.
If you’ve already had this card, Barclaycard usually lets folks get the sign-up bonus on their cards more than once. However, I would wait at least 6 months before applying again.
Remember, Barclaycard typically only approves folks for 1 or 2 of their cards per year. So choose your applications wisely!
And if you recently applied for the Barclaycard Hawaiian Airlines card with the lower offer, it never hurts to ask if they will match the current offer!
The Barclaycard Hawaiian Airlines card currently has an increased sign-up bonus of 50,000 Hawaiian Airlines miles when you complete the minimum spending requirements.
To find the offer, make a test booking for any flight and click through to the final payment screen. When you select to pay with a credit or debit card, the offer will appear.
50,000 Hawaiian Airlines miles is enough for a round-trip award flight to Hawaii from North America. So this is a good deal if you want to visit Hawaii. Or if you collect Hawaiian Airlines miles.
