Good news for folks looking for more Hawaiian Airlines miles!
Through June 21, 2016, you’ll get a 25% bonus when you transfer AMEX Membership Rewards points to Hawaiian Airlines miles!
Here’s more about what you can do with Hawaiian Airlines miles. And how to transfer your AMEX Membership Rewards points.
How Does the Bonus Work?
Usually, you can transfer American Express Membership Rewards points to Hawaiian Airlines miles at a 1:1 ratio.
But through June 21, 2016, you’ll get 25% more miles on each transfer!
So if you transfer 1 ,000 AMEX Membership Rewards points, you’ll get 1,250 Hawaiian Airlines miles.
And your points transfer instantly. This is great if you want to book an award flight right away!
What Can You Do With Hawaiian Airlines Miles?
A one-way ticket from the mainland US to Hawaii costs:
- 20,000 Hawaiian Airlines miles in coach
- 40,000 Hawaiian Airlines miles in First Class
And one-way inter-island flights, like between Honolulu and Kauai, cost 7,500 Hawaiian Airlines miles in coach. Or 15,000 miles in First Class, but the flights are so short it’s usually NOT worth booking a First Class ticket!
And Hawaiian Airlines doesn’t add fuel surcharges. So you’ll just pay ~$6 in taxes and fees each way.
You can also use Hawaiian Airlines miles to fly on partner airlines, like JetBlue and Virgin Atlantic. This can be a great deal, because Hawaiian Airlines does not add fuel surcharges to flights on partner airlines either!
How to Earn More AMEX Membership Rewards Points & Hawaiian Airlines Miles
You can earn American Express Membership Rewards points from cards like the Premier Rewards Gold Card from American Express, Platinum Card from American Express, The Business Gold Rewards Card from American Express OPEN, & AMEX Mercedes-Benz Platinum.
Just remember, get any Chase cards you want first because of their stricter approval rules.
Partner airlines like JetBlue, Virgin Atlantic, and Virgin Australia allow you to enter your Hawaiian Airlines frequent flyer number to earn Hawaiian Airlines miles too!
You’ll get a 25% bonus when you transfer AMEX Membership Rewards points to Hawaiian Airlines until June 21, 2016.
Inter-island one-way coach flights in Hawaii cost only 7,500 Hawaiian Airlines miles. And a one-way coach ticket from the mainland US to Hawaii costs 20,000 Hawaiian Airlines miles.
You can earn AMEX Membership Rewards with cards like the AMEX Premier Rewards Gold & AMEX Platinum. Or earn Hawaiian Airlines miles with the Barclaycard Hawaiian Airlines personal and small business cards.
