Fare War: $29 Inter-Island Hawaii Flights

I'll keep this brief as to be timely, as these fares won't last.

Southwest just dropped their price on some of their brand new inter-island flight, between Honolulu and Maui, to $29, and Hawaii Airlines is playing ball. Right now you can find flights on both airlines between Honolulu and Maui, as well as Honolulu and Kona (on Hawaiian) for the super low price of $29.

I'm seeing the Southwest flights pricing at just 1,379 Rapid Rewards (and $5.60 in tax).

100k Amex Platinum Targeted Offer!

Update 4/30: The CardMatch tool is back with the 100,000 Membership Reward bonus offer for the Amex Platinum card. This 100k offer resurfaces pretty regularly, so while not uncommon, it is worth checking again if you weren't targeted the last time as they seem to target different rounds of customers each time. 

There is a targeted offer available through creditcards.com's CardMatch Tool for 100,000 Membership Rewards for spending $5,000 on your new Platinum within three months of account opening.

Free Giveaway: $200 Southwest Gift Card

Giveaway time.

I like Southwest for many reasons. You always get to fly with two checked bags for free. No other US carrier has that lenient of a domestic baggage policy. Flights booked with enough anticipation (or during frequent sales) can be super cheap, with points as well as cash. They have one of the best and most flexible change and cancellation policies. In general they tend to put customers first more than other US carriers.

This week one lucky reader will win a $200 Southwest gift card. Southwest gift cards are fully transferable and don’t expire.

Last Day for 75k Bonus on the United Business Card

UPDATE: THIS OFFER HAS EXPIRED. THE CHASE UNITED EXPLORER BUSINESS CARD NOW EARNS 100,000 BONUS UNITED MILES FOR SPENDING $10,000 WITHIN THREE MONTHS OF ACCOUNT OPENING.

At some point on March 18, 2018 the biggest ever sign up bonus on the United Explorer Business Card will end. I'm guessing you'll have until the end of the day on Monday, March 18 to apply, as on united.com (as of Sunday evening, March 17) there is a banner that reads "75k BONUS MILES, 2 DAYS LEFT-- OFFER ENDS 3/18.

WOW….Get the Companion Pass Through 2019 via all Southwest Consumer Cards!

Reminder: These offers expire tomorrow, February 11. I'm not sure if that means right when the date changes--it usually doesn't--or at some point tomorrow, but if you were thinking about going for one of the Southwest cards to nail a Companion Pass for the remainder of 2019, then don't wait any longer. It's safer to apply before midnight tonight. 

All three consumer Southwest Cards' benefits packages have been updated with a limited time offer that lasts for one month.
