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. But on average miles would probably be valued at around 1 cent each.

Now HawaiianMiles never expire, so you can redeem them anytime. See all partners here.
