Threads for Folks who live in Hawaii?

As a resident of Hawaii, it seems like earning and using miles is a rather specialized subject...
Any advice on where to look for good advice and mileage programs and credit cards for those of us who live here?

This appears to be an idea with merit. However, I am struggling to discern the value-added given that we fly the same airlines to the same places as the non-Kamaaina.

Can you provide some insights into how a Hawaii-based thread would give more to us than just looking at UA, DL, AA, or HA threads, and the associated CC threads?

Thanks.

Seems to me that flying out of Hawaii is quite different in terms of choices, reward costs, means of earning miles, partner and code shares than most any other place in the country

Alright then, perhaps this thread can take function. Perhaps you might ask the moderator to rename it: "The Ultimate Kamaaina Airline Mileage, Points, and Credit Card Thread?"

If I become a ...... credit card blogger but write about flying from the islands, would you click on my referral links? Maybe this market's too small

I would, particularly for trips to Asia, Australia, and NZ. We're still a pretty small market, though, so wouldn't quit your day job.
