The Hawaiian Airlines Credit Card’s 50,000 bonus miles offer increased to 50,000 miles in 2019. To get the bonus, spend $2,000 within the first 90 days of account opening. The bonus miles are worth around $720, or about 1.2 cents apiece, when redeemed for Hawaiian Airlines airfare. Cardholders can also redeem miles for round trip flights on partner airlines booked through the Hawaiian Service Center. Partner airlines include Japan Airlines, JetBlue, Korean Air and Virgin Australia. Bonus miles will appear in your rewards account about 6 to 8 weeks after you’ve met the spending requirement.
Hawaiian Airlines credit card miles decrease in value when you redeem them for anything other than airfare. The initial bonus is worth $360 (0.6 cents per mile) when you redeem for hotel stays. If you use the bonus for gift cards or gift certificates for car rentals at Avis or Budget Rent A Car, it has a redemption value of about $300 (0.5 cents each).
You’ll also earn 3 miles for every $1 spent on Hawaiian Airlines purchases. And you get 2 miles for every $1 spent on gas and grocery store purchases, except for Target and Walmart. All other purchases give back 1 mile for every $1 you spend. There’s no annual fee for the first year. But after that it jumps to $99. There’s no limit to the number of miles you can earn. And they never expire as long as your account is active and in good standing.
