Hawaiian Airlines Transfer Partners
You can transfer points to your Hawaiian Airlines account to earn HawaiianMiles using several partners such as Marriott, Hyatt, Hilton, and AMEX points.
Hawaiian Airlines has a small handful of useful transfer partners that you can use to earn HawaiianMiles. This includes major rewards programs such as American Express Membership Rewards and Marriott Bonvoy.
Several rewards programs allow you to transfer your points directly to your HawaiianMiles account. This allows you to top off your account with rewards you have with other loyalty programs and earn points through other means that may be more beneficial to you such as credit cards offered by transfer partners.
The table below lists the programs that allow you to transfer points directly to your HawaiianMiles account. You can enter any value in the table below to see how many points you would need in the partner program that equals the amount you entered. You can click on a program (when applicable) to learn more about earning and redeeming rewards with the program.

Hilton Diamond Members using the Hilton Aspire Card to pay for their hotel stay will earn 34 Hilton Honors Points per $1 spent which comes out to being 5.1 Hawaiian Miles per $1 spent.
