Barclays US Consumer Bank, the provider of the Hawaiian Airlines World Elite Mastercard, announced the new benefit for airline flyers.
Benefits Available for Direct Airfare Purchases with Hawaiian on Select Routes
The new benefit is available to all cardholders, including new cardholders and existing customers. When purchasing tickets directly from Hawaiian Airlines using the Hawaiian Airlines World Elite Mastercard, the primary cardholder can get two free eligible checked bags. Barclays says the value of the benefit is up to $140 per roundtrip.
“As we’ve seen a healthy return to travel and prepare to enter the busy holiday travel and shopping season, we are excited to reward our Hawaiian Airlines cardmembers with two free checked bags,” Bryan Kapeckas, managing director of loyalty & travel products for Hawaiian Airlines, said in a press release. “This enhanced benefit is another way of saying thank you to our cardmembers for their loyalty.”
The new benefit joins the existing lineup available to all cardholders, including an annual $100 companion discount for roundtrip travel between Hawaii and North America on Hawaiian Airlines after each account anniversary, discounted award flights on Hawaiian Airlines and a one-time 50%-off companion discount for roundtrip travel between Hawaii and North America aboard the airline.
Cardholders currently earn three Hawaiian Airlines HawaiianMiles per $1 spent on eligible Hawaiian Airlines purchases, two miles per $1 spent on gas, dining and eligible grocery store purchases, and one mile per $1 spent on all other purchases. New qualifying cardholders can currently earn 60,000 HawaiianMiles after spending $2,000 on purchases in the first 90 days for a limited time (terms apply).
Credit Card Benefits Increase as Travel Re-opens
The move by Barclays is the latest improvement in benefits as travel brands re-welcome global travelers to their brands. In July 2022, Marriott and American Express added benefits to the Bonvoy Business credit card, while online travel agency Priceline revamped their points redemption program for their cardholders.
