After a hectic weekend, I changed my vacation request and re-booked my flight to Hawaii be a week earlier. The plan so far is to spend 5 days in Honolulu and then 3 days in Maui before I fly back home. I will be splitting a room with some friends in Honolulu, but I am looking for a hotel to stay in Maui.
I applied for a couple of credit cards. I got instant approval on the Hilton Reserve card that gives 2 free weekend nights. I plan to use those at the Grand Wailea in Maui if I can still book it. I also applied for and got approved for the Bank of American Hawaiian Airlines card. I also applied for the Bank of Hawaii, Hawaiian Airlines card but am still wait to see if I got approved. I plan to transfer the miles I get for the sign up bonus from Hawaiian Airlines to Hilton Honors points. Points transfer 2:1 and I should get 35k Hawaiian Airlines points (70k Hilton points) for each card.
