- Receive 60,000 Hawaiian Airline miles after $2,000 in purchases within the first 90 days of account opening on the Barclaycard Hawaiian Airlines credit card
Card Benefits & Details

- 2x Hawaiiamiles on gas, dining and grocery store purchases
- 1x miles on all other purchases

- Free first checked bag
60,000 miles is frequently available, but normally the annual fee is not waived first year. In this case it is waived first year, making this offer particularly attractive. In terms of what to do with the miles:
- You can get flights for 35,000 miles round trip with the card from mainland USA to Hawaii, but there isn’t a lot of space available.
- Intra island flights are 7,500 miles one way
- You can also transfer the miles to Hilton at a rate of 1:1.5 (although I’d say this is a bad use of points)
- They also sell sunglasses (I forget the brand and amount, but seems to be a popular redemption)
As always if you have any questions about Barclays credit cards, read this post first. Keep in mind getting approved for Barclays cards can be extremely difficult (6/24 rule). I will be adding this to our list of the best credit card bonuses.
