Closing My Hawaiian Miles Credit Card, What to do with Miles.

Please let me know if this is the correct forum to post in or let me know where to post.

How do I save my Hawaiian Miles? I'm closing my credit card where I accrued a bunch of miles. I'm trying to avoid paying the annual $95 fee which will be charged to that card next weekend. I want to close this card but keep the miles. I joined Points.com where you can exchange miles with another program (they're pretty limited on the airline programs). Sadly, there's no other program to exchange with. I can exchange with JetBlue or Icelandair if I'm a member but I read that they're not really great airlines so I'm not going to join those clubs. Does anyone know where I can 'park' my miles until I find a way to move them to another miles card (like transferring to a trusted relative who also has Hawaiian Airlines account)? Let me know if I need to make myself clearer.

So, if I understand correctly, you are just closing your credit card. That doesn't affect the miles that you have already earned. They are already deposited into your Hawaiian Miles account (run separately by the airline). Your Hawaiian Miles account will remain open -- but be aware that miles will expire after a certain period of time unless you earn additional miles.

Oh my gosh, I must have had a brain fart to miss that. Of course, it's separate. Now I just have to earn points without the card. Thank you very much!

LOSTINHNL, whenever I am in your shoes, I rely on shopping portals to keep my miles alive.
