How to Log In
To access the shopping portal, you first need to log in to your account.
So if you’re already a HawaiianMiles member, simply input your account details to log in. If you’re not an existing member, then you will need to create an account by clicking ‘”Join now” to register your details.
Basics of Using the Shopping Portal
Once you have logged in to the HawaiianMiles Shopping Mall, you can search for retailers or browse by shopping category or bonus offers.
To find out more information on a specific retailer, just click one of the featured boxes with the retailer’s logo, and you’ll be directed to an information page.
This page will detail their current offers, including bonus point earnings and exclusive deals such as free shipping or discounted offers.
Click the “Shop Now” button — provided you’re logged into your account, you’ll be directed to the retailer’s website where you can continue browsing and purchasing items normally.
Once you make a qualifying purchase, your miles will be credited to your HawaiianMiles account and this can take up to 4-6 weeks.
Hot Tip: Most of the bonus earnings are for online purchases only, but there are some retailers that promote offers when purchasing in-store using a registered credit card. You can view details by visiting the HawaiianMiles Marketplace.
For the HawaiianMiles Online Mall, you can search for a particular retailer or browse by category.
Once you’ve used the portal a few times, you may have some retailers that you shop at regularly — save these to “My Favorites” to access them quickly next time you visit.
There are lots of retailers to choose from, from clothing to electronics and automotive to beauty brands.
As with other airlines’ shopping portals, HawaiianMiles doesn’t seem to offer any bonus promotions where more miles are offered for a limited time only. (To check the bonus offers in other shopping portals, use a site like CashBack Monitor.)
But if you fly frequently with Hawaiian Airlines, then you’ll still benefit from extra miles through their standard retailer offers.
Here are some example retailers you will find on the shopping portal:
- Columbia: 4X miles per $1
- Sears: 3.5X miles per $1
- Staples: 2.5X miles per $1
- Macy’s: 1.5X miles per $1
- Acer: 2X miles per $1
- …and much more!
If you’re a forgetful person who won’t remember to log in and click through from the HawaiianMiles Shopping portal, then you can download this browser plugin and it will do it for you.
It’s quick, easy, and free to install — and you’ll receive pop-up alerts when browsing the web to show websites that you can earn bonus points on. Any online purchasing will then be automatically added to your account. It’s that simple!
Using Credit Cards to Earn Extra Points
Recommended Amex Cards (Personal)
|The Platinum Card® from American Express - There's currently a welcome bonus of 60,000 points after spending $5,000 in your first 3 months. This is our favorite card for getting into 1,200+ airport lounges worldwide (including Priority Pass) and we get about $1,500+ in value from the card every year. |
Plus, get up to $200 in Uber credits annually ($15 per month and a $20 bonus in December) — and up to $200 in annual credit for airline incidental charges (e.g. baggage fees). For rates and fees of the Platinum Card, click here.
|American Express® Gold Card - We love using this card as it earns 4x points at restaurants worldwide and 4x points at US supermarkets (up to $25,000; then 1x). There's no better card in our opinion if you eat out and/or shop at supermarkets regularly.|
With a welcome bonus of 35,000 points after you spend $2,000 in your first 3 months and a $100 airfare credit per year, for many this is an easy addition to your wallet. For rates and fees of the Gold Card, click here.
Recommended Amex Cards (Business)
|The Business Platinum Card® from American Express - Even though this card carries a hefty annual fee, we get ~$1,250+ in value per year by leveraging as many of the benefits/perks card. |
Get access to 1,200+ airport lounges worldwide, $200 in airline fee credits for incidentals (e.g. baggage fees) and a lot more. Also, earn a welcome bonus of up to 75,000 points (terms apply). For rates and fees of the Business Platinum, click here.
|American Express® Business Gold Card - probably our favorite Amex business card because we earn 4x points across the top 2 select categories that we spend the most money in each month. The 4x points applies to the first $150,000 in combined purchases from these 2 categories each calendar year. This means you'll max out at a (whopping) 600,000 points per year. After that, you earn 1x. For rates and fees of the Business Gold Card, click here.|
|The Blue Business® Plus Credit Card from American Express - This is a real simple card that earns you 2x points on business purchases up to $50,000 annually (then 1x). There's no annual fee. For rates and fees of the Blue Business Plus, click here.|
The HawaiianMiles Online Mall isn’t the most generous program we’ve seen for extra bonus promotions, but it’s still worth making the most of every extra mile — and there were far more discount and free shipping offers being promoted than we’ve seen on other shopping portals.
Every valuable point will count towards your miles balance, so you’ll soon be able to book those reward flights with Hawaiian Airlines!
