Hawaiian Airline miles
I’m new to the site and learning a lot. I want to fly from Oak to HNL mid January 2016 and prefer to fly Hawaiian Airlines. Is there a credit card I can apply for that would get me enough points to use?
I do have AA miles as well and tried to use them for Alaska Air out of OAK but couldn’t get a non-stop on the return. Would I have a better chance to get that non-stop if I applied for the Alaska Airlines credit card and use their miles/points? Thanks.
Welcome, [USER=871]@Shario[/USER] – Lucky does have a sign-up link for the Alaska Airlines credit card. You can access it from the tab at the top of this page. Best Credit Cards > Airline Credit Cards
Alaska has two lower-level mileage tiers but only the very lowest is available to partners so if you were using Alaska miles you may find more available space. You can also transfer SPG points to Alaska.
There is also a Hawaiian Airlines credit card that can earn you miles for that airline. I found a link for it on the HA website: [URL]https://www.hawaiianairlines.com/hawaiianmiles/credit-card[/URL]
You can also transfer SPG and Diner’s Club points to Hawaiian.
