Nothing says paradise quite like the gentle crash of waves on the sea shore, so if you’ve been looking for an opportunity to settle down, sip a mojito and relax, we’ve got the deal for you. With nonstop flights from to Honolulu for under $300, there’s simply no reason not to. When you’re there, spend your hard-earned points at the Westin Moana Surfrider in Honolulu, Hawaii or head to Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa for a family-friendly option.
Note that many deals begin in basic economy, but the right credit card may help. For instance, the annual travel credit offered by the Chase Sapphire Reserve will cover up to $300 in travel-related expenses, including both bags and seat fees. The same is true of the up to $200 annual airline fee statement credit offered by the The Platinum Card® from American Express and The Business Platinum Card® from American Express if you’re able to book on one of the airlines covered by the credit. Enrollment required.
To search, head to Google Flights and enter your origin and destination cities. Scroll through the calendar function to find dates and prices that work for you. Finally, click through to book directly with the airline or an OTA like Orbitz or Expedia. With Southwest, you’ll have to search and book directly through the airline website or app.
Cost: $277+ round-trip
Dates: March – May 2020
Pay With: The Platinum Card® from American Express (5x on airfare booked directly with the airline), Citi Prestige® Card (5x on airfare), Citi Premier® Card, Chase Sapphire Reserve (3x on airfare), American Express® Gold Card (3x on airfare when booked directly with the airline) or Chase Sapphire Preferred Card (2x on travel)
