Award Flights to Hawaii Just Got Cheaper for Everyone With Chase Points!

Korean Air changed its partner award chart this week.  And because of that you can now transfer your Chase Ultimate Rewards points to Korean Air (and then fly on Delta) to Hawaii for just 25,000 miles in coach and 45,000 miles in Business Class from the US!

To get to Hawaii, other airlines charge anywhere from 35,000 to 45,000 miles in coach and up to 80,000 miles for Business Class!

Korean Air Hawaii

Aloha! You Can Now Use Korean Air Miles to Fly to Hawaii on Delta for Only 25,000 Miles Round-Trip in Coach, or 45,000 Miles in Business Class!

This is an amazing deal, because most other airlines charge many more miles for award tickets to Hawaii!

And I’ll explain why this makes Chase Ultimate Rewards points the BEST for getting to Hawaii.

However, note that a supervisor wasn’t able to actually book the flights at the lower level because their systems have not yet updated.  But the supervisor acknowledged the new award chart which requires fewer miles.

If you’re passionate about Big Travel with Small Money, you’ve learned how to use miles and points to travel for free (or really cheap).  But did you know sometimes the best deals for flights are paid tickets?

On occasion, airlines will mess up and publish low or mistake fares which are hundreds or even thousands of dollars below the normal cost of a ticket.  And sometimes, they’ll purposely release a small number of ultra-low fares as a promotion or to win new business.  This can often start a fare war between airlines as they try to match or beat the lowest fare on a certain route.

How To Find And Book Mistake & Low Fares

You Can Benefit From Mistake Fares, Ultra-Low Fares, and Fare Wars

The trick to getting these low fares is knowing where to look.  And because they don’t often last for very long (sometimes for a few hours!) you’ll need to book quickly before the fare disappears.

It’s much more common to find low fares or fare wars than mistake fares.  And you have to be flexible with your travel dates and destinations.  But I’ll show you how to find and book them!
