This isn’t necessarily surprising news, but I still found it to be interesting news when I read a letter I got today about my Bank of America Hawaiian Airlines credit card (that I haven’t had in months). The letter I got in the mail indicated that my BOA Hawaiian Airlines credit card will be converting to a Hawaiian Airlines World Elite MasterCard issued by Barclaycard. The letter indicated I should receive the new card by mid-April and that I will be credited back for any foreign transaction fees or checked bag fees from January 1, 2014 – April 28, 2014 via a statement credit.
- Complimentary Checked Bag for the primary cardholder when you use your card to purchase tickets directly from Hawaiian Airlines
No foreign transaction fees
- When you spend at least $10,000 in Net Purchases within each anniversary year, 5,000 bonus Miles will be credited to your HawaiianMiles Account.
- And more….
It didn’t specifically call out the annual fee and certainly didn’t make mention of the sign-up offer for the Hawaiian Airlines World Elite MasterCard of 35,000 bonus miles when you spend $1,000 on purchases in the first 90 days, since you wouldn’t be applying for a new card, and a result would not get the sign-up bonus. You can view the same information that is shared on the letter online at HawaiianAirlines.com/myHAcard
If you have the old Bank of America Hawaiian card I’m sure you will be getting the same letter, but you now can make a decision on what is best for your situation given that the cards will be converting to Barclaycard in the very near future. If you want more info about the new cards and the sign-up bonus you can head to this post.
