Help please... Newbie here on award booking to Maui for thanksgiving

Hello there guys! This is my first post and was hoping to get some guidance!

I have a wedding in Maui come this November for thanksgiving and wanted to know how you would go about in getting airline tickets using points. More specifically, the best use of my points in getting value.

I live in pittsburgh, Pa. I am going with my gf. Currently, I have 80,000 chase UR points, 38,000 starwood points and 47,000 for the Barclay card arrival plus. My gf has 60,000 UR points.

Any help would be much appreciated!

if your flexible on days united has coach seats (with 3 conections) PIT-OGG for 22.5 to 28.5 each person each way, so you could transfer the UR points to united and book two one way tickets from each of your accounts. you will have to wait until the Tuesday after the holiday to return using miles tho as the whole weekend is kinda a busy travel time

If you can find Delta award space (unlikely), you can book it with Korean Air Skypass (transfer miles from UR). Their new award chart lists all of North America, including Hawaii, at 25,000 miles roundtrip. That'll be the absolute cheapest from PIT. Call Korean Air first though to confirm before transferring miles.

Thanks!! I forgot to mention that my dad has tons of korean skypass miles. I wasnt sure on how to use them. I'll give korean air a call tomorrow to check on tickets. If not I'll and do United. I will be tentatively leaving Wednesday and coming back on Monday or Tuesday.

Be aware that the award inventory that DL makes available for award tickets with DL miles might be considerably more than the award inventory it makes available to KE for award tickets on DL flights paid with KE miles.
