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, and if you have this card it costs only 35,000. That’s a value of almost 3 cents a mile. But the issue with that valuation is availability which is pretty scarce.

Another good use of Hawaiian miles is for inter-island award flights in Hawaii. They cost just 7,500 miles one-way.

You can also transfer Hawaiian miles to Hilton starting at 10,000 miles, in 10,000 increments at a rate of 1 Hawaiian mile = 1.5 Hilton Honors points.

Guru’s Wrap-Up

The value of this bonus will mainly depend how valuable Hawaiian miles are for you. These are not the most flexible miles but you could net you two free round trip to Hawaii. You need to spend a total of $6,000 to get the full bonus and you need to pay the $99 annual fee.
