The Hawaiian Airlines Business Mastercard is currently seeing an increased welcome bonus of up to 70,000 miles: That’s 60K after $1K in purchases within the first 90 days and a bonus 10K after making a purchase on an employee card. While Hawaiian miles aren’t the most valuable currency, this can be a good bonus if you have a good use in mind.

Quick Thoughts

The new offer on this card might make it worth a look in certain spots:

  1. You have a good use for Hawaiian miles in mind (always a good reason)
  2. You live in or travel from Hawaii and can take advantage of partner awards with decent pricing from HI
  3. You want a non-Amex way to earn Hilton points (H/T to Richard Kerr on this one)
  4. You have a magic wand that makes saver business flights available between the continental US and Hawaii

If any of those apply to you, this offer may be worth it. If not, it’s a questionable proposition. In the past, I’d said that this one could be a value for flying a family on inter-island flights since those flights ordinarily cost $100 and you could get enough of them (or for enough passengers) with an offer like this to save a nice chunk of change.

However, now that Southwest has entered the inter-island market with flights from $29 each way, prices are already being competed down and the mileage rates just don’t make sense with Hawaiian.

Overall, this is probably a miss for most folks, but as it is a business card it should theoretically not add to your Chase 5/24 count and that might put it back into the realm of consideration for the truly dedicated among us.

What does this mean? “Existing cardmembers, existing accounts, and previous cardmembers with accounts closed in the past 24 months may not be eligible for this offer.” I take this meaning if I have the PERSONAL card I am not eligible? I will call and ask.

Show me one Southwest flight from mainland to Hawaii under $100…it is all marketing, it does not exist
