My love of Hawaii began 13 years ago when I posted and grabbed a deal paying just $87 for airfare and hotel.  Since then I’ve been lucky enough to spend several months between the stunning islands, which each offer a unique and wonderful experience.  You can’t go wrong with any of them, there are just 2 things is to be careful of.

Always a good day in Maui #MauiNoKaOi

1. Don’t get stuck in Honolulu. I’ve heard from too many people who spent an entire week and never left the city limits.  That’s just a shame, they may as well have gone to Miami Beach.  While I prefer The Big Island, Kauai, and Maui to Oahu, there is still plenty to see and experience on Oahu as long as you leave Honolulu behind.
2. Don’t try to “do” several islands in a week. If you just have 4-7 days of vacation then you should stick to one island. There will be plenty to do to keep you busy and it will allow for some time to relax. There’s no need to add the stress of interisland travel just for the sake of “doing” another island. With 9 days or more to play with, it does make sense to experience more than 1 island.

As for which island is best, read on and decide for yourself!  If you ask 5 people you’ll probably get 6 different answers 😀

Dansdeal Effect – system is down


How can I transfer points to AA if I don’t have enough available?


Can I book through Avios and call in?

David Schwarz

Is it possible to purchase AA miles, and how would 5k miles cost?


Yes you can.
5,000 miles costs $149.97

I am 403 miles short and the minimum they ask you to buy is 2,000…


minimum for a transfer is 1000, and it transfers instantly


aa website is not working

hille may

what transfers to aa miles?


System is down


Chase UR points transferable to AA?

Serious question

Something Went Wrong

Yeah AA shut down their reservation system. What BS.


aa keeps on crashing


Do Chase UR transfer?


system down.
fixing the glitch?


Can i transfer or book using British Airways Avios?


Nothing showing at 5k.


AA site seems to have crashed. Impossible to even search. Bummer…


I’m not seeing for under 12k


fixed. back to regular prices


I’m seeing plenty of availability from dfw to both Hawaii and New Zealand for 10k each way


What dates??


what dates ?




Do we really need to read about your love of Hawaii in a smoking hot post?




For those asking how to get AA miles, Safest way is to overpay and buy directly from AA


Is it instant?

Look it up

Plenty of tickets for 10k in business to maui


This can be cancelled within 24hrs without a reinstatement fee?


i m not seeing 10k for any routes.. what am i missing here


Plenty days still showing 10k from NYC.


Is it worth transferring Marriot to AA in advance in case more deals come up. Specifically if I know I will be taking a trip soon? (Not sure, LA,FL, or Hawaii)




I don’t have any AA points anymore, spent them all already. And AA has very limited transfer partners. Any advice from other ppl? I have 200k Amex, 250k chase, Hilton (only 12k), IHG (only 20k), 100k quantas


I got a couple 10k hawaii trips on hold. I’m surprised by these deals. I was thinking my AA miles would never be redeemed. It’s nice to finally see a deal instead of AA’s normal layover or stopover treatment where it takes you 2 days to get anywhere on redemption.


Not seeing any dates. Can someone post example


Hi! I can’t seem for find the right page for these deals. Can someone give me clear instructions how to find them?? Thanks!!


I’m not seeing Economy Web Special for my searches. Is that happening to anyone else?


Us there any way to see the advance search tool on mobile? I keep getting redirected to the new version.


Dan, I have held from DFW to HNL for 26k miles round trip end of jan 2020. Is that a good deal ?


Any hotel deals to go with this for Nov-Dec ?


I put a flight on hold from LAX to KOA for 24k miles round trip. Is that a good deal?


Hi is the pineapple store kosher? utensils and all?


@dan No disrespect, just want to know if you went there and its good or if you are just recommending it for none kosher eating travelers?
