Hawaii is one of the world’s most popular vacation destinations, and for good reason! With great weather year round, a friendly culture, lush greenery, clear blue waters and amazing food, it’s a vacation everyone should get to experience at least once in their lifetime. The only problem is that it’s expensive to get to and that’s what keeps a lot of people from having the opportunity to go. But I have some great news! With a secret travel hack, you can now score cheap flights to Hawaii from the West coast for just over $100!
If you go to the Hawaiian Airlines website, you’ll find an ad for their World Elite Mastercard, advertising that you will get 35,000 bonus miles if you spend $1,000 in the first 90 days of opening the card. Guess what! I’m here to tell you that you can actually get 50,000 bonus miles!
To do this, go to HawaiianAirlines.com and “fake book” a flight. Do a random search for any flight on any day and go through the motion as if you were actually going to book the flight. Choose your departing and return flight, enter your traveler information and contact information, pick your seats (or skip since you’re not actually booking the flight), and then you’ll end up on the Review and Pay screen. Scroll down to where you enter your credit card information and you’ll see an ad that’s different from what’s on their main page! 50,000 points instead of 35,000!! Apply for the card from that screen and then close your search.
Once you get the card, all you have to do is spend $1,000 in the first 90 days of opening the card. The 50,000 bonus miles is enough to get you a free round trip flight to any island from almost anywhere on the West coast. All you’ll pay is the $89 annual fee and $11.20 in taxes and fees.
$100.20. That’s cheaper than a short domestic flight!
Hawaiian airlines also flies to China, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, Australia and New Zealand! In fact, we used this travel hack to fly to two separate destinations on one way tickets. We bought a one way ticket from LA to Maui and had almost enough miles left over for a one way flight to Tokyo.
So, if paradise is calling your name, use this travel hack and go out and book cheap flights to Hawaii!
