By clicking through to your favorite retailer via the Hawaiian Airlines shopping portal, you can earn Hawaiian miles on top of other rewards and discounts.
Whether you’re a first-time visitor to the islands or a regular on Oahu’s North Shore, chances are Hawaii’s on your bucket list of travel destinations. And who could blame you? One simple way to rack up miles and help make that next Hawaiian vacation a reality is by using HawaiianMiles Online Mall, the shopping portal for Hawaiian Airlines.
By earning miles on purchases you’re already making, you’ll be on your way to a free flight faster than you can say “aloha” – and even quicker when you pay for those purchases with rewards credit card. Doing so is free and easy, so why not give it a shot?

How to use HawaiianMiles Online Mall
Here’s where the fun starts. Once you’re signed up, you can start using the program immediately to earn miles on all your shopping purchases. To do so, just visit the HawaiianMiles Online Mall website and enter your login credentials. You can search for a particular retailer by category in the left module or by name in the search bar, after which you’ll be redirected to the store’s website to complete your purchase while remaining logged into your HawaiianMiles account. (This is how the program knows where you’ve shopped, so it can credit your account with the correct number of miles.) You can also find merchants offering bonus miles, seasonal specials and other exclusive deals to further boost your earnings.
Once award miles are added to your HawaiianMiles account, they’re redeemable for travel just like the miles you earn when flying with Hawaiian Airlines or any of its travel partners.
How many miles can you earn with HawaiianMiles Online Mall?
Like most shopping rewards programs, your potential earnings with HawaiianMiles Online Mall varies based on the retailer and how much you spend. A quick review of the portal shows that most purchases are worth anywhere from 1-6 miles per dollar spent, though some merchants offer much more. Other businesses offer a set amount of rewards; for example, as of this writing you can earn up to 500 miles when you purchase a home-based DNA testing kit with 23andMe, or up to 1,000 miles when you sign up for Sling TV streaming services.
Per the program’s terms and conditions, both participating retailers and mileage offers can change daily. Once you make a purchase, allow 4-6 weeks for miles to post to your HawaiianMiles account.
