What’s the deal with HawaiianMiles?

American Express Membership Rewards members can currently get 1,250 HawaiianMiles per 1,000 Membership Rewards points, with the 25% bonus promotion. Transfer at least 1,000 points to Hawaiian Airlines miles through June 21st, 2016, to get the bonus.

There is an excise tax offset fee of $0.0006 per point (up to a maximum fee of $99) when transferring your Membership Rewards to a US airline frequent flyer program; for example, transferring 1,000 points costs 60 cents.

How do I get the HawaiianMiles deal?

Log in to your Membership Rewards account and transfer to Hawaiian Airlines miles by June 21st, 2016.

Is it worth it to transfer Membership Rewards to HawaiianMiles with this deal?

If you need to top up your points for a particular redemption, or are looking at travel within Hawaii, then this may be useful. Plus, historically, 25% seems to have been the highest bonus given when transferring from Amex to Hawaiian Airlines, so it’s unlikely you’ll see a better offer if you need a few more now.
