Wife and I just completed a r/t from mainland to HNL and now have Hawaiian miles. We do not expect to be using Hawaiian Airlines that much so I was wondering if there are any other uses for these miles. I think we have over 6K each.
If you get the HA VISA ($79 with a 35K miles bonus), you'll be able to pool your miles with those of family and/or friends for free. Combined with the 35K bonus you'd be earning from the card, you'd might get close to enough miles for 2 R/Ts on the Mainland, Canada, or Alaska with DL.
