Hot Deals to Hawaii!
Link: The Fare Deal Alert
Link: United Airlines
United Airlines has a seat sale to Honolulu from the following cities for travel in coach:
- Cincinnati – ~$360 round-trip
- Detroit – ~$381 round-trip
- Memphis – ~$365 round-trip
- Minneapolis – $355 round-trip
- Salt Lake City – ~$359 round-trip
These fares are available for travel until the end of December 2015! You have to purchase at least 1 day in advance.
Departures to Honolulu must occur from Sunday to Wednesday. And the fare is valid for return flights from Monday to Thursday.
What If You’re Not in These Cities?
You could fly cheaply to 1 of the included cities by using points (like British Airways Avios) to get there. British Airways Avios are great for short-haul flights because it’s only 4,500 points 1-way for flights less than 649 miles, and 7,500 points for flights up to 1,149 miles.
Or if you have the Southwest Companion Pass, you could fly to these destinations very cheaply. That’s because with the Companion Pass, your companion flies with you for almost free on both paid and award tickets.
You might also try finding a cheap paid ticket (but do the math 1st to see if it’s worth it!).
Don’t Forget to Use the Right Credit Card!
If you book a fare, be sure to use a card that earns bonus points for travel or airfare:
And because these flights are all on United Airlines, folks who have the Chase United MileagePlus Explorer, Chase United MileagePlus Explorer (business) or Chase United MileagePlus Club cards should use those cards to book.
That’s because they’ll earn 2 miles per $1 they spend on United Airlines, plus perks like free checked bags and priority boarding. Remember, you have to use the card to buy your ticket to get the free checked bag!
Get Free Hotel Nights With These Cards
Now that you’re on your way to Hawaii, remember there are lots of ways to get cheap or free hotel rooms with points from credit card bonuses and spending!
Remember, you can transfer flexible points like Chase Ultimate Rewards or American Express Membership Rewards to different hotel programs.
Note: Folks who want to book paid stays could check out discount sites like Orbitz, Expedia, or TravelPony for deals. But remember you won’t get stay credits or points (and might not have your elite status recognized).
And if you’re feeling adventurous or prefer a local, more neighborhood feel, Airbnb is a great way to save money on accommodations, especially for longer stays.
You can fly in coach from certain US cities to Honolulu for less than $400 round-trip!
These fares won’t last, so book soon if you want to get in on these prices.
