Through 6/21/2016, American Express is offering a 25% transfer bonus from Membership Rewards to Hawaiian Airlines HawaiianMiles.
Get 25% more HawaiianMiles® when you transfer Membership Rewards points through 6/21/16. (Note: This may be targeted. Login to your account and check the transfer screen to see if you are eligible.)
With this bonus, 1 Membership Rewards point becomes 1.25 HawaiianMiles.
- 1,000 Membership Rewards becomes 1,250 HawaiianMiles
- 10,000 Membership Rewards becomes 12,500 HawaiianMiles
To transfer points, simply add your Hawaiian Airlines HawaiianMiles number to your Membership Rewards account and then go to the transfer section under “Travel”.
Excise Tax Offset Fee
American Express charges a fee equal to $.0006 per point when transferring Membership Rewards to U.S. based loyalty programs (up to $99). For example, a transfer of 10,000 Membership Rewards points will cost $6. Amex gives you the option to use an additional 1,200 points to offset the fee, but that is a terrible deal.
