Lucky writes that the Hawaiian Airlines online shopping portal is offering 74 HawaiianMiles per dollar for purchases at Amazon Local.
The Hawaiian Airlines online mall seems to be offering 74 HawaiianMiles per dollar spent at Amazon Local. Once you get to the online mall just enter “Amazon” in the top right search bar, and the offer should come up.
And indeed, it does come up:
I imagine this is either a mistake, or they’ll decide later that this is a mistake. The Hawaiian Airlines shopping portal has a of not honoring super lucrative deals even when the terms and conditions of the offer explicitly say ‘no restrictions’.
And in this case there’s a bit of murkiness, because when you click through to the Amazon Local offer it says “Earn 74 miles / member signup” rather then per dollar.
On the other hand the detailed restrictions seem to make it clear that the offer isn’t for a signup but for a purchase.
- Retailers retain the right to award points based on valid transactions. It is at the discretion of the retailer to deem whether a transaction is valid. Other restrictions may apply.
- Restrictions on use of gift cards, gift certificates, coupons or other promotional discounts may apply.
- See our Terms of Service for additional terms and restrictions regarding your use of this website.
- Limit one per member.
- Valid on first purchase by new members only.
There wouldn’t be gift cards involved, or a “first purchase” if it was based on “member signup” and this doesn’t say “74 miles for new member signup, purchase required.”
It does say limit one per member (one what? purchase? at 74 miles or 74 miles per dollar?). So presumably they’ll at least enforce that.
And in past mileage shopping portal deals that haven’t been honored, there have at times been mileage ‘consolation prizes’ (such as 2500 miles from Cartera Commerce for the American Airlines shopping mall error with Verizon).
And at the very least it would seem that any purchase made based on the representation of earning 74 miles per dollar would have to be refunded if they weren’t going to honor the deal.
Although it will take a little while to sort out, for sure. It may be worth playing along if only for the entertainment value.
