Southwest to Hawaii: Get your Companion Passes ready

Southwest announced late last night that they are finally starting service to Hawaii in 2018.

Singapore Airlines and Alaska Airlines recently announced a partnership. Today, Singapore released its award chart for travel on Alaska, and it results in the new cheapest awards to Hawaii from the middle of the country westward, with travel as low as 11,500 miles one-way (which should include flights from places like Denver, Pheonix, Boise, Bozeman, Calgary, and more). While British Airways has long been a good redemption for Alaska flights departing the west coast at 12.5K one-way, this…

Business Class to Hawaii: $1079 RT from Canada

When checking on recent posts to see what was still alive for this week’s Last Chance Deals, I stumbled on some very good business class prices on United between Toronto and several Hawaiian Islands — from $1079 round trip (prices are similar from Montreal as well and only marginally more from Haifax, Winnipeg, Calgary, and Edmonton). Flights from Toronto/Montreal require 2 connections in each direction, but the good news is that you can snag at least one segment in a lie-flat seat on the…

Hawaii on sale: flights from around the US and Canada

In fact, these cheap fares are even available during the Van’s…

Don’t go to Hawaii for $182.24… yet

Yesterday’s post titled “Hawaii round trip for $182.24” can be filed under Frequent Miler #FAIL.  If you were thinking of following the plan I outlined yesterday, please don’t.  At least, don’t do it yet.  I made several assumptions in that post that are looking questionable or are plain wrong: Assumption 1: The meaning of 4X I assumed that Sears 4X meant that you would get 4 extra points for shopping at Sears through the MR…

A reader challenged me recently to help him find a way to quickly earn more Membership Rewards points.  He’s planning on taking advantage of the current bonus offer in which Membership Rewards points can be transferred to British Airways Avios miles with a 50% bonus.  That is, until May 31, for every 1000 Membership Rewards Points transferred, you get 1500 British Airways miles.  Below is the plan I suggested.  It’s not easy, but if you…
