Once US AIR stopped offering points for Amazon the only way to go was ½ a point via Hawaiian. Now they are up to 1 full point per dollar spent.

Now remember you can transfer 1  Hawaiian point  to  2  (edit: now 1.5) Hilton points. So, you are in effect getting 2 Hilton points per dollar spent at Amazon on top of the points card you use to buy whatever you buy. Not a bad deal! – René

  1. I’ve been doing this for a few weeks now. For those of us who buy most of our stuff on Amazon, this adds up fast! I’d also recommend evrewards.com to check, since I realized I could get 6 pts/$ at Eddie Bauer thru the Ultimate Rewards mall rather than 2.5 pts/$ thru Hawaiian.

    I bought something from Amazon 2 weeks ago and received 0.5 miles/dollar

  3. Yes I think this is a new update. From what I have seen they were 2 points over the summer. Then down to 1/2 point now up to 1 point. – Rene

    Remember, you have to have 5,000 points in your account before you can transfer to Hilton. Since I use Hawaiian Airlines only for the transfer to Hilton, I have downloaded the toolbar for searches as well.

    If it’s 2 Hawaiian for 1 Hilton, would be like getting 1/2 a Hilton point for every dollar spent at Amazon, not 2.

  6. @ djsoulglo – sorry – I try to make the verbiage clear but guess I did not. What do you think of that reworking of the post to make it clear that you can get 2 Hilton points for 1 Hawaiian?!?

    Starting in January you should be able to use your Chase Freedom at Amazon for a bonus percentage as well.
