[Thank you for supporting BaldThoughts.com.  I do receive compensation if you apply for these cards through my links.]

Hawaiian Airlines is offering limited flights from LAX to Kauai, Hawaii for $329 round-trip, including all taxes.  This is an amazing flight deal that I found on The Flight Deal.

This is an AMAZING price.  However, there are ways to make this even better.

How you can fly for FREE

There are two simple ways that you can fly to Hawaii for free… when taking advantage of this airfare, simply pay for it using your Barclay Arrival card and use your 40,000 bonus points to offset the price.

Or you can use the Hawaiian Airlines credit card to earn 35,000 miles, which is almost enough miles to fly round-trip (flights start as low as 20,000 miles each way).

You can click on “See More Offers” to uncover additional offers.

Once you’ve found an offer you want to accept or explore, click on the “+” sign on the left to expose the details, and click on “Save Offer” when you’re ready to accept it.  There’s no cost to accept these offers, so you should click on every one because you never know when you might spend money at that store or website.

The offers are different for each card.  After my latest App Party in April 2014, I have 4 American Express cards, so I had 4 different sets of offers.  There was a little bit of overlap, but not much.

Offers I’ve Used

I have used some of these offers.  For instance, the offers I used this month were:

  • save $20 off $20 at Amazon
  • save $10 off $200 in American Express gift cards
  • save $25 off $50 in Costco purchases
  • save $25 off $75 at Ticketmaster
  • save $10 off $50 at Sprouts Farmers Market

 

I recommend exploring all of your card’s benefits to see if you can save money on your next purchase!
