I’m totally new to miles. My wife and I would like to go to Hawaii. I have enough American Airlines miles to get us there, but need help with hotels.
Where should I start? What’s a good chain or card to collect miles on for Hawaii?
Planning a trip to Hawaii is very exciting, Brian! Congratulations on earning the American Airlines miles to get there!

Let’s see what strategies Brian can use to get Big Hotels with Small Money in Hawaii!
I wrote about my last batch of credit card applications in January and how I was unexpectedly approved for a 2nd personal Club Carlson Premier Rewards card.
This was a surprise, because US Bank is well known for being picky about approving folks who apply for lots of cards! However, freezing your ARS and IDA credit reports helps with approvals.
So I decided to sign-up for a 3rd personal Club Carlson Premier Rewards card. But 1st, I froze my ARS and IDA credit reports so that US Bank couldn’t access them.
And it worked! I was approved for a 3rd card!

Which Club Carlson Hotels Will Cost More Points Starting June 1, 2015?
Here’s a look at what you can expect.
