Booking a trip to Hawaii can cost hundreds or thousands of dollars. However, using points and miles, you can book an affordable trip for less than nothing. I am going to Kauai in May for an (almost) free honeymoon and after spending thousands on a wedding, this gave us some relief on the expenses. I also booked hotels through points and saved over $1,000 dollars. (ask if you want to know how). This is a trick that US airline companies don’t want you to know about. Below is a Romsdeals Roaming for Deals tutorial on how to book a flight to Kauai for about $20-$25 per person.
First, go to www.aa.com and enter dates and click redeem aadvantage miles.
Next, choose two dates. I picked 4/11/12 as the departure and 4/17/12 as the return as an example.
After that, go to http://www.ba.com and log into your British Airways and replicate the same dates. Since British Airways and American Airlines are part of the OneWorld Alliance, you can use BA miles to book American Airline flights. On BA, it only costs 25,000 avios miles round trip per person to flight to any hawaiian island and back to LAX. This is definitely a steal!
Click book, and you can see it only costs about $40 and 50,000 miles for 2 people to go to Los Angeles to Kauai. It would cost about $1,200 to $1,800 for two tickets!
To get 50,000 BA miles, you could sign up for the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card or the BA Chase card. I would go to http://www.millionmilesecrets.com and look for the banner and sign up. You get 50,000 miles after spending $3,000 in 3 months, and waived annual fee. Please let me know if you have any questions on how to book Recession Proof Travel!
