American Express has a new promotion for transferring points to a travel partner. They are offering a 25% bonus when you transfer Membership Rewards points to the Hawaiian Airlines mileage program.
Special Offer: Get 25% more HawaiianMiles when you transfer Membership Rewards points through 6/26/18.
- 1000 Membership Rewards points = 1000 1250 HawaiianMiles
Using Hawaiian Miles
The value of Hawaiian varies, but you can get great value on award travel to Hawaii. It costs 40,000 Hawaiian miles for a round trip in economy class between the continental US and Hawaii, so that’s only 32,500 Membership Rewards points with this promotion. First class will cost you double. Another good use of Hawaiian miles is for inter-island award flights in Hawaii. They cost just 7,500 miles one-way.
You can find their award chart here.
A decent promotion if you have a good balance of Membership Rewards points that you want to put into use. We have seen the promotion in the past as well. They also have a similar transfer bonus for Air France KLM.
If you’re looking for more miles, you can also check out their credit card that is offering a 50,000 miles signup bonus.
